    I traded in my Gamecube to get the CC, it's all EB would give me for it. Having done that, I'm happy with the CC, if you want that sleek white look on everything just like i do, get it!

    seems like GC controllers are compatable with most games. i'd rather go with the classic though

    I think the classic controllers are pretty good.

    Only downside is that it uses the battery up in whatever wii-mote you connect it to whilst you are playing. So if you don't use rechargeables then it may become quite annoying.

    Supposedly not all VC games are guaranteed to be compatible with the Gamecube controller, but I haven't seen any yet that aren't. Personally I think that the classic controller is worth it, 'cos a few games feel a bit awkward to play using the GC controller.



    I never add friend codes.

    Needing a quick bit of advice here.

    I already have 2 remotes, a classic controller and 1 nunchuck. The downloaded games I have are Mario 64 (classic controller) Bomberman (2 remotes), sonic (classic/remote) and mariokart 64 (classic).

    Problem is if I buy another classic controller then for the likes of bomberman then I'll stil only have 2 controllers to play it with, whereas if I buy a GC controller it will give me 3 available controllers.

    With MarioKart 64 it's no use just having one player, so what would you recommend, a GC controller or Classic Controller additionally? Game UK have released several GC 'wii style' controllers for 10, keeping with the white look. I'm worried about wasting 15 and then having to buy a GC controller in the future for SSBB anyway. Thanks.

    I personally am going to get a GameCube Controller (Possibly a WaveBrid), so I can play GameCube games as well. (Note: If playing GameCube Games you will also need a GameCube Memery Card to save)

    Gamecube controllers work just fine for VC games, including the N64 games. I got a Classic & a Wavebird (Wireless GC controller) for Christmas and I only used the Classic once to try it out. . .I've been using the Wavebird for all my VC and GC game playing because the GC controller is superior in functionality.
