    SNES, NES controllers for VC gaming

    If you truly want to get that retro feeling of old school Nintendo gaming back into your living room then this little adaptor might be just what you need.

    Created by an electronics company called RetroZone, these little adaptors will allow you use to use your old NES and SNES gaming pads to play the classic Virtual Console titles.

    The adaptors connect with the Wii via the GameCube controller ports and are priced at $19.99

    Currently scheduled for release early 2007, might be worth a bookmark for future reference.

    My NES Pad took such punishment from playing Mario! If these adapters ever become a sensible price (less than 7) I may pick one up - would be nice to use such a classic controller again.

    The classic controller is just the like Snes pad, and the Wiimotes just like a Nes pad so what the point in paying out for wired controllers?
    This means you're: A Smart Gamer

    What does it mean?

    You have a good grip on the gaming world. you know what games you enjoy, you remain somewhat even in a debate through the consoles. undoubtably a "Super Fanboy" has called you a fanboy when you are not one but rather just stating facts. you are invalueable in a discussion on consoles.

    You know what your right..! I own two new in the box SNES controllers and One new in the box NES plus 1 used controller. I'm there. Now all I need are Genesis and TurboGrafx16 adaptors since I own controllers for these systems too. I collect systems and own all classic systems.
    Great find thanks.. I added the site to my favorites.
