Hey everyone. I know we NES players have a problem finding NES controllers that are still in good condition. There is a small, but really cool video game shop where I live in NYC called Video Games New York. They have a large stock of unused OEM controllers (PAL, so they are compatible with NTSC consoles a well). They sell them for $25 - so they are reasonably priced compared to some ebay listings. I tried to prod where they got them from, but they wouldn't say. I bought 2 myself and they passed the feel/smell test (they smell new). Just a heads up, I am not affiliated with these people in any way, so I hope no one flags this. Just trying to help my peers out . I asked them about shipping out of state, and they said to call and inquire. The controllers are probably not listed on their site as well, so you will have to specifically ask about those: https://www.videogamesnewyork.com Hope this helps some of you with worn-out pads! Feel free to ask me any questions about the controllers I bought. I'm more than happy to show you pics of them, etc.
