It also has a really neat feature, by pressing the Turbo and the select buttons at the same time it will automatically take you back to the main menu of the system.

This is great, because you won't be sitting on the floor, two feet from the TV like you did back in 1991. Well worth the investment if you are going to stick with the standard wired controllers that come with the system. Also backwards compatible with the NES Classic controllers.
