    wavebird is the gamecubes wireless controller, i thought it was the greatest wireless controller for the 4th generation

    it is slightly heavier but it feels like something better

    i prefer a wired (normal) control made by nintendo. I bought 2 3rd party made ones and they both broke the first week, they are pieces of trash.

    That's what I thought before I got one. It's actually a really sweet controller. Not cheap though.

    Some madcatz controllers come in a reduced size--this could be a positive or a negative, depending on how big your hands are. Just something to watch out for--don't get the smaller ones unless that's what you're after.

    wavebirds = 10$ more (usually)
    You can buy gamecube controllers anywhere for 15-20$.
    Madcats controllers are so horrifically bad i went through 2 in 1 week.
    Trust me its worth more in the long-run, get 1 or 2 nintendo brand "wired" controllers.

    Yeah, some third party controllers will work, but others will not. Be careful about which third party controller you purchase. Goodluck.

    Go for the ones at dealextreme.com for 11.33, free shipping.

    They look exactly like the original, except it doesn't have the "GameCube" logo on it.

    But you'll have to wait 2 weeks to get it.

    I will be purchasing those for when Brawl comes out.

    Just wanna say that the Wavebird is a very good controller, and the batteries last for weeks of solid continued play. Don't have much experience with third party controllers for Nintendo as I like to go for the best, but when it came to getting a decently priced wireless controller for PS2 it turned out to be a third party one...it works very good and the batteries actually last quite awhile.

    It may end up being hit or miss in this situation, but you can always save your receipt and return the third party one if it turns out to be a piece of junk and get a better one...the price difference is certainly substantial.
