    Anybody here know of a website that i can order a GC-controller from?

    It has to be for a European Wii.
    The website has to ship internationally (to Norway)
    It should be as cheap as possible

    I want the GC-controller so i can run homebrew on my Wii (i got a wiikey)

    Thx in advance for good replies! [​IMG]

    I tried those BigBen controller and didnt like them. I always prefer to buy first party controllers but this is just my opinion...

    There's a lot of Wavebirds on ebay (at least on ebay.co.uk) some for auction, some buy it now. I picked up a couple for my PAL wii and I'm very happy with them.

    I've got 2 thirdparty controllers. One is a Joytech, can't remember the other one. The quality is the same as the original controller.

    First party = Nintendo
    Second Party doesn't exist for controllers.
    Third Party = every other company even if they are authorised by Nintendo.

    I had a third party controller that worked on my gamecube but not on my Wii, I think this might be the case for a few types of third party controllers, should always go for the first party stuff IMO nintendo always make high quality hardware.

    I ended up getting a wavebird off of ebay for £20, Well worth it since GC controllers have quite short cables.

    For US users, Nintendo still sells gamecube controllers from their official store. Do they not do the same for Europe?
