    Yeah if you can find those, those are the better ones to buy.
    But Nintendo doesn't ship out or make new ones anymore, so you'll be lucky to find some. My Zellers has Mario Power Tennis with a Gamecube controller for about $40. Maybe more stores are doing that?

    They do, but never in large quantities. The Gamestop near me usually has one or two new controllers ($25), and the Best Buy had a few as well. They were all platinum color; I think that's the only one that is still produced now. People say to get the Wavebird, and you definitely should if you see it in a store, but it's probably even harder to find than a Wii :P So don't hold out in hopes of getting Wavebirds, the corded Nintendo brand controllers are a great deal too.

    Yeap, I was just about to mention that. I got 2 off of ebay as well for $20 SHIPPED. They're 3rd party controllers but are wired, have the original design and feel just like the original ones. I guess the real test will begin once brawl releases. Still a good buy in my opinion for 2 GC controllers.

    Cheers

    Don't mean to be negative or anything, but those controllers will probably suck. I've used a vast variety of 3rd party controllers (my friends all seem to think they're a good deal) and I've never come across one that works nearly as well as an official one.
