    Product Highlights:
    · Compatible with Nintendo® Wii™ Virtual Console
    · Connects Through GameCube® Port
    · Compatible with 1st and 3rd Party Controllers
    · Compatible with NES®, SNES®, and N64® Controllers
    · Analog Function Available for N64® Controllers
    · Suggested Retail Price: $19.99
    · Launch Date: Mid June

    “Whether you’re a young kid or middle aged gaming fanatic, the Retro Adapter is perfect for controlling all the great Nintendo® titles from the last 25 years,” stated Titi Ngoy, President of Innex. “The Retro Adapter allows you to step back in time and play all the classics the way they were meant to be played using the original controllers. The old school is now the new cool.”

    Now we know that retrousb has had the NES and SNES solutions for a long time, but $20.00 for all three??? Yeah, I'll give one a shot and if the support is great, I'll pick up a second [​IMG]

    That definately sounds tempting! I don't have a NES or SNES controller, but I might pick one up. The SNES controller was far better than the Classic Controller IMO.

    They can't even call their product right, there's no such word as adaptor.

    Well, I play Majora's Mask with a Gamecube controller. Never had any problems with it.
