NES Controller on the Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


NES Controller on the Raspberry Pi. Gordon writes –

Some time back, I joked that the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO port really stood for Game Port IO… So to make that joke come true, I present a way of interfacing the NES Joysticks to the Raspberry Pi.

First you need the joystick/controller unit, and a quick trip to the Plymouth Market where I’d had a tip that there was a stall selling retro gaming gear and I returned with a pair of them for under a tenner. Bargain!
