    If you truly want to get that retro feeling of old school Nintendo gaming back into your living room then this little adaptor might be just what you need.

    Created by an electronics company called RetroZone, these little adaptors will allow you use to use your old NES and SNES gaming pads to play the classic Virtual Console titles.

    The adaptors connect with the Wii via the GameCube controller ports and are priced at $19.99

    Currently scheduled for release early 2007, might be worth a bookmark for future reference.

    My NES Pad took such punishment from playing Mario! If these adapters ever become a sensible price (less than £7) I may pick one up - would be nice to use such a classic controller again.

    The classic controller is just the like Snes pad, and the Wiimotes just like a Nes pad so what the point in paying out for wired controllers?

    You know what your right..! I own two new in the box SNES controllers and One new in the box NES plus 1 used controller. I'm there. Now all I need are Genesis and TurboGrafx16 adaptors since I own controllers for these systems too. I collect systems and own all classic systems.
    Great find thanks.. I added the site to my favorites.

    What country is that currency from? Several countries use the dollar, but the exchange rates are different.

    If they came out with one for the N64 I'd buy it pretty much on the spot

    Screw that. Can I use my SNES Super Scope??

    And I agree that there too pricy to say it's just one converter, I'd rather buy them all in a bundle or an All in 1 adapter.

    I want to use my duck hunt gun. An N64 version would be great! It makes you wonder what else they'll add to the Wii in the coming years. Perhaps a headset, usb keyboard, usb camera, or a usb toaster oven (My toaster died recently)!

    I'd probably only get something like this if one was made for the N64 pads.
