Empty controller box for $219, has the world gone insane?

Or am I missing something? Is this box a life changer, the holy grail of containment systems?


Seeing how the going rate for controllers is $500 on average, I guess this is pretty normal, but I just....don't......see......it ?? ! ?

Jeff Minter, PLEASE port Tempest 3k already so this insanity can stop.

There really needs to be aftermarket controllers, or at least a way to make them yourself.

i kinda doubt that is going to happen. i would like to have some more controllers and i will bid everytime they come up, but probably will just be the guy that drives the price up

Sadly they have custom chips in the controllers that make it impossible to jury rig one yourself,
I've pretty much given up trying to find one for a reasonable price.
Currently there are two, both at $495 from different sellers, I like Tempest 3k, but not that much.
On a bright note, the empty box is now only $200, a steal! :cool:

That's odd, they are up there, USA, 2 sellers for $495. I just typed "nuon controller".
YEA, i JUST DID IT TOO, YPOU HAVE TO TAKE THE "VIDEO GAME" CATEGORY OFF TO SEE THEM

ON THE OTHER HAND, THERE IS A DVDN2000 PLAYER WITH THE REMOTE CONTROL FOR 200 BUCKS, THAT IS TEMPTING TO ME

Does the 2000 support CDR's? If not, I'd be more inclined to get the Samsung N501 as it definitely does, and you can pretty much find the entire catalog online, including a bunch of home-brew
software. I see them pretty frequently for $69 to $100 on average.

I have 2 501 models a sd2300d and a 2000 model but would like to have another and have a remote. Would also like to have the rca models
 
Are the remotes compatible across any models? Even just Samsungs? Do any universal remotes work for any Nuon models? Possible to (badly) play any games or homebrews with a remote? I just was offered an N501 and plan on developing homebrew for Nuon using it and a remote for testing the games, because the controllers are too expensive.

I remember trying remote and it only worked on a couple of games on my 501 and it was dreadfully unresponsive and impossible to play with.
You'll need a controller for sure, maybe put a post in this forum, there are some decent people here that might have extras.
Barring that, if you're diligent, some okay deals pop up now and again on ebay, $150 to $200, still too much, but it's worth it (imho) for Tempest 3K.

I have a controller. If you are really thinking about doing something homebrew, in the memory of the creator of the NUON emulator and the source of this controller I can give it to you. PM me if you are serious.

Remotes are specific to the DVD player models and there is no universal remote for the NUON functions that I know of.

Many thanks for your generous offer! I sent you a PM.

I'm not just thinking about doing something homebrew, but I have a series of games planned along with some groundbreaking dev tooling, that will make it easier and more appealing for developers to support the Nuon.

I'd be extra honored to receive one of the late creator of Nuance's controllers and would do his memory proud with my creations.

That's quite a shame on both fronts. It's pretty ridiculous that even across the Samsung N50x line, the remotes wouldn't be compatible. Luckily, it's easy to save the controller output and share it and reuse it. I'll write something up later about this, and maybe we can crowdsource to build a library of each player's remote's output, so no one will need to buy an expensive remote, or suffer without one, again!
