    Yeah, you're gonna need a gamecube controller to play the gamecube games.

    But no worries, they're only like 20 bucks for a Nintendo-brand one.

    For GameCube Games you need a GameCube Controller and a GameCube Memory card - not sure if you can save GameCube save data to the Wii.

    A simple search will be able to answer your questions in future as the forums already have the information posted.

    Haz is correct, you will need a GC memory card to save GC games. The classic controller is primarily for Virtual Console games.

    Get the Wavebird wireless controller. Check Walmart's website, it's currently on sale for 27.xx usd. Then print the page out so that Walmart in store will price match:thumbsup:

    I too learnt the hard way that the classic controller didn't work for GC games, but why does it have analogue L and R? At first I was certain it was only for VC games, then when I got it and noticed the L + R and thought "GC compatitbility? how handy!" .... was wrong :frown2:
