I can assume that because of the "Play it on the wii" titles are coming out they are releasing a Gamecube controller to play the games like they were originally meant to be played.
Anyways, this new controller is officially licensed, boasts a longer (10 ft total) cable, and matches the Wii console's pure white color. Feels and looks 100% like the originals, if not better.(Or so says the reviews)
I don't know about you guys... but I want this controller!
