How will i take my gamecube saves to the wii? does it have a gamecube card slot?
(yes, I know this is an old pic. but it basically looks the same)
metriodz you should know this it has two slots mem at the top where the controllers go
i should but my attention has been on other things about the wii. this machine has so many features and yet is so small, frekin amazing.
ahh yes so true
I was wondering this to, can you save GC games to the SD card? Or to the console itself?
yeh, u can save GC games to sd card.
Probably not, due to the fact that GameCube games aren't aware of the additional hardware.
I don't know why you'd want to, though, because I believe the top panel can be shut with the memory cards left in place, allowing it to look unobtrusive when you aren't playing GameCube games.
Yeah, they do look like rather deep slots.
Perhaps the flap can be shut whilst the memory cards are in..
But what would be the use in that, if when youre playing gc games, the controllers are obviously going to keep the top flap open anyway.
I was thinking that too, until I saw that the flap is actually two flaps, one small one that hides the memory cards and the other, longer flap hides the controller ports.
Wouldent the Wavebird controllers keep it closed?
Imagine at launch date, Wii reveals to us that there is a slot for a NES or SNES cartrigdge on its side :lol:
except for the fact that they are too big and that we have already seen all angles of the system and that eb games already has wiis in there back room i'm sure that employees have opened them and played with them i know i would lol
Hmm. Do you think there's a built-in Wavebird reciever?
The Wii only features Bluetooth internally, while the sensor bar is made up of IR LEDs.
The WaveBird, however, is stuck on old RF technology.
so that still leaves option open for making GC and other controllers with bluetooth functionality in the future
Sure, but why would you do that when all the controllers you need have been made available already?
What they could do is making a different shaped reciever, since the current one for the gc is like a L shape:
What they could do is move the part where it connects to the gc (the metal part that sticks out). They could move it 90 degrees and make it straight. This way, it'll stick out instead of having the flaps on the wii making it hard to put on. Not sure how the wavebird currently stays on though. Plus, the Wavebird uses signals with numbers so you don't need to buy a whole new controller, just the reciever
In the amount of time and money it would take to release one, everyone who has a WaveBird would've already grown accustomed to removing the reciever when they want to close the flap. Besides, by your argument, you still wouldn't be able to close the flap, due to how shallow it is.
It's just frivolous accessories like updates and remakes to already perfect hardware that Nintendo really could do without right now.
After all, they're trying to prove to people that this isn't GameCube 2.0. Due to this fact, I bet you will never see a first party game utilize a GameCube controller throughout the entire existence of the Wii.
And no, SSBB doesn't count because it's a third party developer using first party trademarks.
