    Right from the moment Nintendo announced that GameCube controllers would be compatible with the Wii it has been debated whether the Wavebird would also be supported.

    A Nintendo representative today revealed that yes the Wii will support the Wavebird controller too. Here's what was revealed:

    • WaveBirds and GameCube controllers can be used with all GameCube games and select Wii Disc games. (Emphasis ours.)
    • WaveBirds are used as Nintendo GameCube controllers, so they need to use the receivers.
    • The WaveBird receiver does indeed fit into the top of Wii.
    • WaveBird and GameCube controller compatibility with Virtual Console games has not been announced. Nintendo will release more details about Virtual Console games and controls closer to launch.

    I was curious about the wavebirds, but I knew Nintendo would be smart enough to include support for them. Wired controllers are so 1980s.

    Cool, I thought the receivers wouldn't fit because the ports look flatter on the Wii than on the Gamecube, I'll keep my Wavebirds now, can't stand leads .

    it had to be, this whole thing about wireless controller with motion sensing, the wii had to allow a wireless gamecube controll.

    Indeed. I would be kinda amazed if the Wii didn't support Wavebird. o_O;; In fact, I was kinda confused when I saw this thread's name. xP
