Dell Streak + SNES Controller = Blissful Gaming Experience


One crafty gamer and his Dell Streak took it upon themselves to whip up a mouth-watering gaming controller for the device. Using the device’s PDMI port, he crossed some wires and soldered some doohickeys that allowed the controller to be plugged into the Streak and be recognized as a USB keyboard.

Because of this, you can use it to navigate the Android OS and to play any of the several emulators on the Android market, just as if you had a portable SNES (and what gamer never dreamed of having one of those?) Personally, I’ll stick to my PSP for emulators, but if I didn’t have that, this would be next on my list of “Do Want”s.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  4. http://www.retrousb.com/ – not sure if this relates exactly, but these guys sell professional looking adaptors to plug many classic nintendo/sega controllers into usb and gamecube ports.

    i bought a couple of the snes->gamecube adaptors and they work great for virtual console games on the wii. i know the classic controller is really similar to the snes controller, but there’s nothing more authentic than playing with the actual controller. :)
