    oh... i didn't realize that, i've never actually played anything on the game cube before.. was hoping to find out the answer before i bought something, as i heard game cube controllers were hard to come by

    No. It's not possible. You wouldn't be able to convert it either unless some 3rd party source wastes a lot of time converting wireless to a GameCube input - which isn't going to happen. It -MAY- be possible in updates for the future, but I do recall Nintendo stating something about only being able to use GameCube controllers for classic games and not the other way around.

    I'm about 90% sure - I COULD be wrong though.

    Of course, there are lots of controller converters available for PS2 - GameCube, N64 - GameCube and the such. I've looked on eBay quite a few times and there is still plenty available. The conversion is very good, too ... not to mention the fact that PS2 controllers are cheap to come by (3rd party though). You could always convert if you needed to play a GameCube game. The Wii is compatible with all controller conversions (even a double conversion from USB to PS2 to GameCube - yeah, I tried it).
    You can also convert XBOX controllers but I don't understand why you'd do that. The conversion cords are sold for at least $5 - $15 maximum.

    I'd try getting a Pre-Owned GameCube controller from GAME or GameStation

    The bluetooth also shuts down for gamecube mode. The only way to even get back to the Wii channels menu is to reset the system.
    ... but what do I know?...

    Best bet for GC controllers is Cash converters (UK)
    Or Ebay
