    Gamecube contoller or virtual console controller?

    I got a wii few days ago. I just played wii sports, my gf keeps complaining how her arm is so sore. she wants to play oldschool games or maybe gamecube games.

    I know that vc controller wont let you play gc games. If I do not play that, which is a better choice? How compatible is GC controller with VC games? I saw 2 GC controllers on ebay going for less than 20 including shipping while VC controllers are 20 + tax retail each.

    welcome to the forums, and pick up that deal! the Game Cube Controllers aren't that bad, you might need the Classic Controller down the road for games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl (even though it hasn't been officially announced). but pick up that deal and start from there.

    the short answer is get the classic controller if u are getting only vc games
    gamecube controller if u wanna buy both vc and gamecube games


    if you have or planning on getting any gamecube games u need the gamecube controllers either way. i have a few gamecube games and 2 gamecube controllers. its okay but isnt the best controllers for all the systems and the classic controller is better but its not a necessity.

    i started a thread on alternatives to classic and gamecube controllers

    the SD cards only used for picture,music,movies playback then if you fill up your memory on the wii you can toss you VC games on the SD card too...

    as for controllers most vc games tell you what type of controller it will use some say classic,wiimote,or gamecube some will play with all 3 of them

    but for gamecube games you need gamecube controllers i dont think they will really become rare to find, they may have discontinued gamecube but the wii is a gamecube and you need all the accessories to play the wii/gc so i think they will drag out gamecube a while longer in the form of the wii.... games and accessories will probably still pop out for GC your just gonna need the wii to play it

    I just bought the Classic Controller for 20€ last saturday (still in box) and yesterday I saw a GC controller (CONTROL3) for 15€.
    Now, I have second thought seeing this tread.

    Should I return it and get the GC controller? I think the CC is great as you don´t have a cable.
    I am not sure, but can you play GC games with a CC?

    Thx
