    Anyway, I recently bought a Wii (a few months ago) and I've been looking into buying Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance since I'm a bit of a FE nut and I've played all the other English released games in the series. I don't have a Gamecube, nor do I know I what is required in order to get a Gamecube game to work on a Wii. I've heard from a friend that I'll require a Gamecube controller and a memory card of some sort. Can anyone specify so I don't go out and buy the wrong thing? I'm sorry if the answer is obvious, but I had to get an Xbox last gen so yeah... If anyone gives any feedback, cheers in advance!

    Yeah all you need is a gamecube controller and a memory card.

    Both you can get real cheap.

    Yea if you want a memory card for one game you could problably get away with getting one for a few bucks.

    Cool, thanks guys. Just wondering though... There's different sizes of Gamecube memory cards around. I'm wondering if I should get the smallest one, since I only have one game in mind which I want to play.

    If it is only one game and you won't later on expand your interests into more than one game then a small memory card is fine.

    You could later on buy a bigger one if you want to try more games, it won't set you back alot of money.
