    Wii Classic Controller

    What consoles can this controller actually be used for?

    I have bought one to play Gamecube games, but it wont! lol
    How do i set up the controller?

    the classic controller is for the VC. i dont believe you can play gamecube games with it....however on the side of the wii, there is a compartment for the game cube controllers. there are i believe 4 ports.


    ETA: if you plug it into the bottom of the wii remote, it should just recognize it almost instantaniously

    to those that have a classic controller:

    i have one, and i noticed that there are 2 slots on the bottom, along with a button on the top in the center that moves what looks like a locking mechanism within those slots...

    does anyone know what this is for?

    something thats availible now?

    or possibly nintendos got something up their sleeve and plans to release something?

    That's correct - the classic controller does not work on Game Cube games.

    You need a standard GameCube controller to play GameCube games.

    You need a Wii Classic Controller to play Virtual Console (downloaded) games.

    *Some Virtual Console games work with the GameCube controller, but not many.

    And also, some virtual console games can be played with the Wii remote turned sideways.
