With all the praise regarding the new throwback console, it’s hard not to complain about the really short cord length. So they thought Hey let’s make a huge shortcoming for the main reason of buying this just because of a secondary function? It’s no excuse for that controller cord to be that short and also ridiculous that you have to either hunt down a third party extension or get a long HDMI cord and play with this thing in your lap. I think it’s a great idea but Nintendo deserves the flack for that stupid design choice.

It’s funny because the length of the cable is actually really important for a console like this. It changes the whole experience. We would’ve also liked the option for wireless controllers that way people can have a choice. Also, modern controllers don’t really have lag so we don’t see why if, this had a wireless controller option, that there would be any problem with lag on them.

We’ll play a retro game with a wireless controller and a minimal amount of lag. But if given the choice between any amount of lag and using a wired controller, we’ll always choose the wired controller. This is because the amount of time it takes for the signal to go from a wired controller to your CRT TV probably already takes no more longer than a quarter of a millisecond.
