    Purchasing GC controllers

    Can I get a price check on GC controllers, new? I'm just trying to find out whether I can buy 4 when brawl comes out. What are the best places to find them cheap, and would i just be better off using wiimotes?

    They're $25 new. If you want consider the Classic Controller. It has just as many buttons and a similar setup. But if you prefer the gamecube design go for the gamecube controllers.

    Depends where you go I assume, and if you can find the original styles still.
    My Zellers only has third party Gamecube controllers which go for $19.99. I would say they won't be over $25 ever, so if your willing to spend $100 on four thats around where you will be.

    If you find these in stores buy them, they are harder to find now as Nintendo isn't making/shipping any more of those out.

    The main thing I can add to this is:
    Never buy third party controllers. All of mine have gone bad one way or another, and never because of mistreatment. Even past that point, they're usually a lot less comfortable because they always seem to be really fat.
    Get a wavebird if you don't mind extra price + batteries, but otherwise just get the original design.
    But really, just try not to buy anything third party when it comes to video games.

    Yup, made a bad decision when I bought a madcatz one. The buttons don't even function correctly, they fall off, and it's so bulky. Doesn't feel real. I have a question though. You can still buy the original GC controllers at common stores such as Wal-Mart? I have the black GC controller, but I want to silver orange and purple. They sell all of those at Wal-Mart, Gamestop, Circuit city, Best Buy, etc.?


    Thanks to TwilightSky of Brawl Central for sig!

    Get a Wavebird if you're going to buy Gamecube controllers. Price goes for about $30-$35 depending where you live and what store you go to. Sorry if I'm just repeating someone else.
