Was just wondering if anything was stopping me from grabbing the 2018 Smash Ultimate GC Controller and plugging it into a Wii or Wii U, or even a Gamecube.

Thanks

Nothing. The Gamecube Controller is the "same" as it was for the Gamecube. The reason I put quotes around same is because while its designed to be the same as the original controllers, it doesn't quite function like the old ones. Reportedly, some of the new controllers have drifting issues or cause you to turn around randomly. Why that is may be due to the large gap in production time between the old and new controllers.

Id say its pretty sad that new gc controllers cant be 100% identical to those from 2002. Nintendo has 100% the specs. They know the exact mix of plastic used as well.....

They are identical to late run gamecube controllers. Just because a small number of individuals (relative to total sales) report having a problem with their controllers doesn't mean Nintendo is manufacturing cheap gamecube controllers. I'm sure people had similar problems when the gamecube was new. This sounds just like the nintendo switch bending issue which, like most problems, gets overblown to give people the impression that they are likely to occur when in fact they are quite rare. Keep in mind, people who would go online and talk about something they bought aren't likely to say how plainly satisfied they are. The new controllers are just as valuable as the old ones except sealed ones of course and if given the choice I would always buy the new production ones which won't have hundreds of hours of joystick use.

    @Veho, That's why I don't really care about having everything new new anymore as long as it does its job on what you want it to most new devices just brag about having bigger dicks than their last one

    But a mini device that can do up to ps2 sounds nice and may make the wait worth it

  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    Bigger dicks would be nice. It is the pointless electronics that break on otherwise mechanical devices
    that bothers me.

    If anything capacities get lowered, tolerances get lowered because electronics control them for at least the warranty period and don't need to have as much safety factor...
