    3rd party GC controllers

    A few questions;

    1) Which brands of 3rd party Gamecube controllers work on the Wii?

    2) My 3rd party GC controller does not work on my Wii.

    3) Is there any other issues with the 3rd party controllers that other people ahve reported?

    4) Does MADCAT controller work on the Wii?

    I got semi-pissed when my GC controller did not work on my Wii. Now all I got is store credit until they get in their 1st party GC controllers...I hate that store. Its called Game Stop, no not Gamestop this is actually one of those knock-off ones. The only place I could find Symphonia. Please help.

    few questions;

    1) Which brands of 3rd party Gamecube controllers work on the Wii? As far as i know all of them, Nintendo wavebird is the best one you should go with. Apparently pelican is not a very good company to make GC controlers, mad cast. well. I got one, big mistake. 1. its smaller 2. its on a wire making it faulty after use 3. Iv had bad expircese with mad cast.

    2) My 3rd party GC controller does not work on my Wii. Which one do you have? once again i would go with the nintendo wavebird its a little more expensive, but worth it.

    3) Is there any other issues with the 3rd party controllers that other people ahve reported? not that i know of.

    4) Does MADCAT controller work on the Wii? yes.

    I would just buy a wavebird, or if your tight on buget take your chances with a pelican. (wavebird dose not have rumble feture, but I could not tell for the past 3 and a half years I have had it.)

    The one I had has no name, its just a purple clear no named brand GC controller. The same size as a gc regular controller. So madcat works?

    Personally I'm not a big fan of the Gamecube controllers in general so I've opted for a Gamecube controller converter that enambles me to use my old PSX controllers (or PS2 if u got em - which i don't) on the Wii in the place of a GC controller.

    For me, its sticking with what I'm used to in terms of 'old' controllers. The new Wiimote on the other hand has taken me full speed ahead into a 'new' age of controllers, and I am happy

    im not going to lie just buy a nintendo made controller it will last much longer third party controllers tend to break and you will end up spending more money
