My lazy ass would love a wireless solution.  Come to think of it I have I think an old pair of wireless Snes controllers I wonder if they will work?

The system is compatible with the 8bitdo SNES retro receiver, so you should be able to use all the controllers that are compatible with it. I know I have tested the NES30, Wii w/ classic controller attachment, and joycons. 

 

But that would only be for player 1

I did try to reach out to 8bitdo to see if they would be interested in doing a controller like that, but never heard anything back. Although that was about a year and half ago.

I would have to assume they look at potential total 5 digit sales before they would support that. 

 

Its why in a way it’s too bad there are no USB ports on Phoenix, but I get why you didn’t go there 

 

edit: USB irrelevant with modern 8bitdo snes retro retriever

FYI, 8bitdo did say they are working on 2.4Ghz SNES controllers.  You might want to wait out for those over the standard BT SN30.   They should be cheaper and have less lag, similar to M30 2.4ghz vs M30 BT controllers.

A few people asked me if we're going to make exclusive games for the Phoenix

Answer: Yes! definitely!
The very first one I'm working on is Venture DX

Updated graphics, more rooms, more musics, more everything!


Here's a screenshots (works in progress)

I like the new labeling but I have one question.

 

River West bought the Coleco license but was ADAM included in that?

After initial release I plan on buying the ADAM plated.
I just think it looks cooler.

River West Brands did not buy Coleco anything.  They simply registered the  unused trademarks.  No they did not register the Adam trademark.

I believe there are wireless adapters for wired SNES controllers, so one could probably use an SNES data controller with such an adapter. A little clunky, but you would have pseudo-wireless and the keypad. The problem with anything plugged into the ColecoVision controller port is that there is no 5V 50+ mA pin on the CV controller ports, just the SNES port.

I only bring it up so if I can be authentic when I finalize my Super Games.
I really would like to use the ADAM logo and if they are going to have a fit over the Colecovision then it's a no brainer.
