    There have been about a million threads on this already.
    What they generally seem to say is that at the moment, the classic controller is only really used for VC games (plus one wii game, I think, where it's optional), so there is no need to buy one if you have GC controllers, but you may need one in the future.

    Stick with the Wavebird. I got both for christmas and I don't really use the Classic because the Wavebird works just as good and I don't have to bother with pluggin it in to the Wiimote to get it to work.

    Yes (all of the so far, although Nintendo has said that a few select games might be not be compatible of the Genesis/Turbographix games).

    So you can play VC games with the GC controllers plugged into the top of the unit? I thought hat you had to have the classic controller (that plugs into the wii-mote) to play VC games.

    I have 2 Classics as this is the first Ninty product I've owned.

    I had the intention to buy them so I could download and plkay Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64.

    Its a shame that the wires are so long, just a solid connection to the Wiimote would have been enough.

    They do look nice but they feel auwful to hold compared to my brothers 360 controller and my old PS2 controllers.

    I bought two classics because the wiimote and GC controllers just didn't "feel right" for Street Fighter II. I'm guessing the same applies to many VC games.

    I have a wavebird and 3 wired GC controllers. I don't own the Wii Classic Controller (thought the plug into the Wiimote bit a bit annoying and an unnecessary battery drain) But then I saw and ordered this:
    http://www.estarland.com/index.asp?page=GameCube&cat=&product=14442&q=
    It's pretty darn similar to the classic SNES controller. I'm now playing the classic Link to the Past with it and am having a blast.
