I don't know about anyone else but doesn't that wireless controller look somewhat interesting? Even though it looks kind of bulky.

Does any one here recommend the Hori N64 controllers? I see them on ebay for over $50 so I would hope they're of good quality.

Anything made by Hori is of the best quality. Trust me, if it says Hori, it's probably good. Well worth the price of the controller.

And like most things people credit Nintendo for originating, someone else beat them to it. :)

And no, not everything Hori is made of gold. I have a Hori pad for Saturn which is completely mediocre. I've heard the Hori N64 pad is nice, though. It looks incredibly small to me (and I have small hands), but it's supposed to be durable. Would have been nicer if they made it a little wider and had a better position for the d-pad.

Well, did the n64 come out before the pippin?

Pippin was released in 1995, and that was the first (and only?) controller for the system. Nintendo 64 was released in 1996, and who knows when that boomerang controller came about.

Hardly matters anyway. The boomerang N64 controller wasn't made by Nintendo.
