I would be interested in the latency time of this.

I know that people who speedrun need the least amount of input lag and as it is wireless I wonder if it holds up to speedrunner standards.

For Smash Bros they don't even like to use the Nintendo Pro Controller because of the input lag and most opt for a cheaper corded controller.

It seems like a nice product for 99% of the market who want the nostalgia without the need for low latency.
