    Would it be possible to use a PSP as a controller for Emulators or VC games
    on the Wii with some cross platform homebrewery ??

    Since both PSP and Wii are homebrew capable, I'd say it's possible. Now all you need is someone to make the right software.

    Isn't a Gamecube or Classic controller more comfortable?

    I never really liked the feel of the gc controller and I dont have a classic controller, I think it would be a cool addition to wii homebrew. (Assuming you have a psp)[​IMG]

    Well, unless you want to do it yourself, I doubt anyone would want to go through the trouble to make software for this. I should think it's possible in some way though.

    There's too many aspects to it that make it impractical.

    For one, WiFi will introduce latency on the controller. Two, interfacing it with the Wii would require a lot of modification on both systems... moreso than anyone would be willing to do.


    Why not settle on a classic adapter? They sell ones that let you connect any type of controller to the GC port.

    First off, Wi-fi via the ol Ad-Hoc mode.
    PSP to wii is silly really. But would be a fun project.
    You could probly um..... watch movies on it?

    Duct tape a wiimote to it and use the Analog stick?
    Use it as a rear view mirror in a TORCS port?
    How bout widescreen homebrew diagnostics?

    Too hard to be worth it really, but fun just for the hell of it.

    Though if your looking to use a more PSP controller design, well, someone's already done that.
    NintendoWiiFanboy.com PSP like Classic Controller

    The assumption is that the mod doesn't want a wired controller...

    i was thinking of this the other day. not the psp controller, but usb controllers. preferably the adaptoid n64 controller adapter. i assume that there is a lib for the usb on the wii right? i assume this because usb hdd has been figured out, wiilinux and the saturn emulator both use a keyboard so would it be possible to use usb gamepads/adapters in wii hb? there is a driver source code available for the adapter i am speaking of. so could this be possible to integrate into mupen64gc somehow? imagine rumble and saves on the controller when using mupen64gc. besides, there are a shit load of 'x console' to usb adapters out there and it would be sweet to use them on the wii for emulation.

    Why bother with USB?

    They have NES/SNES/Genesis/N64 to GameCube adapters that work natively.
