    That does look pretty cool. I am still using my GC controller to play VC games, and I personally think that the control system of the GC controller is excellent.
    That is still a great find, so nicely done.

    Yes. This is just a wireless Gamecube controller being marketed for the Wii. I'm getting really annoyed at everyone calling it a Classic controller, because a lot of people are going to be pissed off when they buy it and realise it does the same thing as their Wavebird.

    It's like the PS3 controller in terms of layout, but shaped like the Xbox 360 controller.

    I like it. If this were actually a "classic" controller I'd be all about it for sure!

    But of course it CAN be used for VC games!

    It looks ok. I think I would rather get Nintendo's classic controller though.

    Anyone one know if this controller works with Gamecube games? I want to buy it since it is cheaper than a brand new Gamecube controller at my best buy =]

    No, he's talking about a SNES Classic Controller for the Wii only sold in Japan. The one you pictured is the Wii Classic Controller.

    As for the wireless one, I don't like the looks, so I'll stick with my Gamecube Controllers for VC games.

    No thanks, I really dislike how the joysticks are next to each other, hence the reason I don't play Playstation at all.

    Bottom line:

    In reality it is a gamecube controller, due to the fact that it's wireless dongle plugs into the gamecube port on the Wii.

    Functionally it is a classic controller, because it has the same exact button layout as the classic controller.

    They are marketing it as a classic controller because of the button layout - some people are annoyed with the gamecube controller when playing SNES games because it is a bit more difficult to push certain button combos.

    I dont like it. Classic controllers should resemble classic controllers, this is more like an xbox controller.
