either buy an official one off amazon, or buy a 3rd party one. Those are your only 2 options. Id recommend the Japanese white GC controller as the wire is twice as long as a normal one.

Thats nice. I need a long wire due to the way my system is set up.

i got some of these the cords are very short and they dont feel as good as the originals but the shape is exact, i doubt they'll live longer than a month each but considering they cost the same for 12 as what you can get one official for right now it might be the best choice

ttx brand, clear feels better than the rest for some reason texture wise.
just buy one or four to hold you over until nintendo rereleases the official ones for $25 again

The cords are so short that even if i got a long adapter it would be awkward... But overall i may get them. Or just accept my fate and but a expensive official one.

yeah you'll have to get either extension cords or a super long usb to plug into the adapter if you are using it on wii u or nintendo switch.

Those are probably not going to last more than a week if he's a competitive Smash player. My cousin has some that look exactly the same and the sticks broke almost immediately.

Man GC controllers have skyrocketed in price, I got a few brand new for only $20 each a couple years before Sm4sh released.
If this is for use on Wii/Wii U the Hori Battle Pad is supposed to be good, it works as a Classic Controller so you'll need to connect it to a Wiimote (and use Nintendont if you're playing GC games with it)
Hori usually makes good stuff.

all offbrand controllers look the same there are at least three different manufactures most are terrible though.
normally i'd say $100 for a real gamecube controller is probably worth it but it would suck for him to pay $100 now only to have them rerelease and be $25 again next week.

I'd go for an original NGC controller (even for a second hand one), they are more reliable and last more that those crappy offbranded.

Bought one about a month ago, seems to work fine. Top half was the blue/purple color, bottom half was clear on mine, but you don't get to pick the color.
How long is the controller you got's cord? I have a odd ball setup and need a longest one. And if its not to long I goitta hunt for a GameCube adapter with a long cord. And something I forgot to ask; that controller you got. Is it a official Nintendo one? I'm not aware of any official clear GameCube controllers.
