    Found this online today and it seems pretty awesome, it acts both as a wireless GC controller (with rumble) and a classic controller.

    It's also nicely priced, $20, I think I'll get two of those instead of the two classic controllers I was planning on getting, only downsize I can see (besides not being "official") is that it runs on AAA batteries, I guess Wiimote battery packs would've been better choice [​IMG]

    Eh... looks not very comfortable IMO. I'd rather find a Hori somewhere.

    Yeah, they're nice. I'd rather have a Gamecube controller though... And I was able to buy some original Classic Controllers for only 10 euros a piece!

    Some other downsizes: not everything is supported by the Gamecube controller (some VC games), the original controller is nicer for GameCube games and you can't use it with GlovePIE for your PC. That last reason alone convinced me to buy a Classic Controller.

    I doubt it is really a Classic Controller, as it plugs into a GC controller slot.

    It's basically a WaveBird...

    Am I the only one who thinks it looks absolutely terrible - it looks like it was designed by a blind child who has never laid hands on a videogame controller before. That D-Pad looks ghastly, the shape looks uncomfortable and what the hell is up with the wireless receiver just hanging over the edge of the wii like that?

    Now this is a proper wireless classic controller. [​IMG]

    I think it acts as both (I think you can see the little blue lights near the middle of the controller for letting you know which player you are).
    There are two switches on the bottom of the controller, One is for rumble on/off, I bet second is for GC/CC mode...

    EDIT: Nm, just saw this image:

    I dont see player indicator lights. I still think it can interface with wii without GC connector. And other witch says "POWER -something-"
    Also WaveBird didn't have rumble, AFAIK...
