    Wirebirds and the classic controller dont have the rumble feature. The wired gamecube controller has rumble though.

    My GC controllers have rumble/vibration in them. I think thats standard in all of them but I'm not 100% sure. Just ask the guy when you buy one. I wish I had wireless...anyone have a picture of a Wavebird?

    Here's the wavebird next to a regular gamecube controller. The Wavebird also has a receiver that plugs into one of the GC controller slots on the Wii.

    I've been reading different people saying this and others saying it's not entirely accurate.

    Does anybody have any reliable sources that can confirm or disprove this? Not that I don't trust you tophermike, I just keep finding conflicting statements the more I try to look into this.

    The best way to know which controller works for what is to look at the icons used in the shopping channel. It shows exactly which controllers work for the game you've clicked on.

    I only have Super Mario Bros and The Legend of Zelda and the Wii controller works perfectly fine, though for a seasoned Nintendo player, the buttons and D-pad are noticeably smaller. In SMB I can use my Wii controller as player one and my GC controller as player two, works just fine.

    You can use a GC controller for SNES games but I think it would feel less "right". The classic controller is nearly identical to the original SNES controller plus two analog sticks. I actually don't understand the design of the classic controller. Although it does replicate the original SNES controller, the N64 games are still left with nothing that properly replicates the original button layout. Then again, the Sega and TurboGrafix games aren't either.

    As for the Wavebird, it's the only officially supported wireless GC controller that Nintendo says will work with all VC and GC games. If you care about wireless, I'd go with a Wavebird.

    Gamecube controllers are butt ugly. I wont ever buy one. It looks like it was designed for a retarded child. So the classic Wii controller doesn't work for Gamecube games? What a shame!

    Gamecube controllers are the most comfortable things out there. I'd take it over a 360 one any day. Also, how would you expect the classic controller to work with Gamecube games? The wii is essentially a gamecube when playing those games so no signals from the wiimote are registered. Seeing as how the classic send signals through wiimote over bluetooth, I don't see how you would think that Classic could ever control a GC game. Wow that was longer than I expected. Sorry for the rant.
