.: welcome

If you're a true gamer like me, you have used emulation. If you're an avid gamer and you like the original classic no substitute feel, you have used and bought USB to original game pad adapters. If this is you, you also may have gone broke buying 10 different adapters to get truly immersed in your game. For me, I had to have 4 of each. There is nothing more exhilarating then playing an emulated game on a big screen television with the authentic and original gamepad from the 90/80/70'ds. Heck maybe you still have them. If so, this is for you



.: history

Bliss-box was the first ever all in one, trouble free, and ready to go usb adapter. The main goal was to adapt as many controllers as possible in one box giving you the ultimate gaming experiences for any emulator (i.e. Nintendo 64, nes, snes, Sega, Play Station, Saturn, Atari, and so many more). The idea was not to have any technical knowledge or having to fool  wiring to use the box. You just plug in the controller; plug in the usb adapter and play. Version 1.0 was intended to support controllers only. This excludes things like guns, paddles, dance pads, multi taps, and robots.. Version 2.0 aimed to support everything the controller had to offer in one fashion or another. Version 2 also was to be expandable. Although 2.0 is still beta its core code is solid. All that remains are the unfinished features. The 4-play will be a branch point for 2.0 when production starts. 4-play is targeted for consumers as it does not require anything but plugging it in.


.: What is Bliss-Box

Bliss-Box is simply a USB adapter for console controllers. The main product currently is the 4-play but there are many custom options. Say a n64 usb adapter with a gc port or a Nintendo usb adapter having all Nintendo consoles on one adapter. Maybe just that one single adapter you always wanted but could not find. Bliss-Box supports more console controllers than any other product out there. The Bliss-Box challenge says there is not one that cannot be adapted. So far the only controller that escapes this rule is the Vectorex. In this case you need a patch cable. The new 4-Play adapter will come with its own patch cables.
