NES USB controller: don't make it, buy it
If you've got any plans to turn your Apple TV into a set-top emulation station
, you're going to want to make sure you've got the right controller for the job. For playing classic NES games, there's really nothing better than the Emmy award winning
NES gamepad (sorry Classic Controller
). You could either follow our very own how-to guide

your existing pad, or you could just plunk down the cash in exchange for the convenience of having it done for you. Try Phreque.com's $33 option
