I have the wireless Xbox One controller from Microsoft, and I know there has to be a way to connect it to the original Wii, but I just don't know how. I tried plugging it with a USB wire to the Wii but all it does is flash on and off. I then (while still plugged) pressed the sync button on the controller (the controller light began to flash as in searching) and then I pressed the red sync button on the Wii that's next to the SD card slot andddd nothing. I would love to use my Xbox One controller for Nintendont and other retro emulators on my modded 4.3u Wii. They say the Xbox One controller can be used for "anything" ... is the Wii an exception to that famous saying?
