    Hi, does anyone know if the GameCube JoyBox works on the Wii
    Its something I just came across, and was considering getting one because I like the ps2 controllers...
    Also, I want to get some gamecube games but dont want to spend loads on gamecube controllers, i already have 4 ps2 controls, and these accessories are cheaper..

    (Note: For all who dont know, the GameCube JoyBox is an accessory which allows you to use a Playstation 2 controller on your Gamecube.)

    Thanks!

    Use edit.

    This accessory should work with the Wii, if it plugs into the/a GC port. The Wii has the Cube engine built into it, so it is not emulating the GC. Which means, if it works on the GCube, it works on the WiiCube.

    i would seriously like to see nintendo come and sue somebody for a mod... not going to happen for several reasons... 1. its not cost effective 2. its bad publicity.

    do what you want for your own 'values' and inform others of what you think, but dont threaten a law suit that has no chance of happening

    Maybe you shouldn't post to tell others not to double post? That takes that one extra post out of the equation:D

    Though,I guess I just defeated the purpose.

    Thanks for the replies people.
    Seriously one of these can be considered illegal? after all its an adaptor rather than a mod, all these controllers are in essence proprietary USB connections anyway... (i think! don't quote me on it..)

    If anyone has 'actually' tried it on the Wii his/her opinion would be helpful, although I could just go and buy one its only about 5 bucks.

    I want to get Smash Bros Melee, have heard great stuff about it, thats why i need either gamecube controls or these joybox's

    PS ah the 'edit' button, gotcha!

    I have tryed it it works
    There worth geting becuase the game cube pad is rubbish for all but gc games and also ps2 pads are easyer to come by

    The classic controllers ok but its no good for n64 games

    Also look out for the ps2 Street fighter pad its good for non n64 games

    sometimes double posts are nessecery. A lot of forums prevent editing your posts and so some people don't even know to look for an edit button.

    I run a number of forums and you have to make exceptions and realise that not everyone is trying to post pad.

    Thanks Darkprinny! appreciate it.
    do you know a good place to order them from? (I am UK based)
    I have seen them for £5 each, is that a good price?

    I agree i didn't like the gamecube pad, maybe i'm just used to the PS2 controller.
    And thanks Neutron2k for your comments

    Game and hmv have them (about a tenner)
    Ebay sell them cheaper (dont look for the name look throw the game cube bits or even wii)

    To every one babling about double posts STSU it was a noobish misstake that is all there are worse offenders on here

    You dumb or something? If I buy a Wii (which i have already done) and want to mod it or run homebrews Nintendo can't sue me. It's my console I do what the hell I want.

    Are you saying for gamecube games its definitely better to just buy gamecube controls? 4xgamecube controllers = lots of money

    If you have a minute could you just check out this site to see if its the same one you used (they're pretty cheap, 4 of them for £23 delivered..)
    http://www.consolesandgadgets.co.uk/catalog/gamecube-joybox-p-319.html

    Note: I don't need the multiple-in-one adaptors which allow me to use ps2 controls in my pc/xbox AND gc etc, I have xbox 360 controls which work in the PC, and well i don't play the xbox anymore anyway, just need the GC one.

    PS I hope i did the quote thing right, don't lay into me if i didn't..!

    PPS forgot to add: thanks for the info Darkprinny, £10 each from GAME is a bit much methinks..

    It depends id say gc pad for gc games (buttons are layed out the right way)
    But your freinds might not like the gc pad layout so get two of each just to be sure

    Just been looking at the link and there a bit expensive on most stuff

    Yes thats true their prices are really high, but the joybox is nice and cheap!

    I think I may just go with your idea of 2 PS2 controls and 2 Gamecube Controls, at least i'll have a choice!

    darkprinny thanks for all your comments you've really helped me out! :thumbsup:
