£19.99 @ Base with 4.04% TCB. I don't think its as much as a deal as its standard pricing.

Its not an official Gamecube controller. Its an officially licensed 3rd party version.

Yea I mentioned I have seen it a few pence cheaper around the net but as far as pre orders go shopto have always delivered on the release date for me so personally I would rather pay the little extra :)

I can vouch for 365 Games on their Pre Orders, Including an Xbox console I have received from them, But aside from that, Lets try to stick to deals and not members personal preferences ;)

So are these officially licensed "replica GameCube Controllers" made from the exact same components as a proper Nintendo branded GameCube controller?

"Officially licensed" doesn't count for much

Hot! Think I'm just going to buy the adaptor though. I've still got 4 GC controllers. I know where one is, the other three are...somewhere.

I wouldn't trust this controller, nothing but nintendo-made is any good. On this the c-stick is completely different

They changed the inputs??? Cheeky sods. Still use my original pads on the wii

Well observed. Sloppy for a product that claims to be a replica.

Once the Gamecube controller 4-player adapter is released for Wii U alongside SSB people would be better off using proper Nintendo branded original Gamecube pads (including the fab Wavebird wireless pad) rather than these horrid-looking childish efforts.

Kinda tempted, but playing with an original would be better

It's beautiful.... But the price tag puts me off for an outdated design.

I like the Gamecube controller. I think it's one of the best controllers. Never held a controller that comfortable since. But it had it's shortcomings. The C-stick being one of them. Would be much better as a "proper" analogue stick. Like this one. Not that I'm saying this looks like a better controller. Looks rubbish actually.

Damn it's actually a classic controller, I was wanting to use this with my GameCube!

Tempted to pick up a Yoshi one despite already having two GCN controllers.

Just so you know the wavebird causes input lag, so you'll always be a little slower playing a fast paced game like smash compared to a wired controller :) it's the reason all tournament use old crt tvs, cause modern tvs cause input lag.

Agreed i never liked the c-stick, but it's the way nintendo made it so we're stuck with it. As for 3rd party the the materials used that are cheap and nothing will compare to the feel of an official controller.

Hopefully this is another step towards GC games on the Virtual Console. I just want to play Mario Sunshine again (yes I know I could pick up a GC and copy cheap but that's not the point).

If you've a decent PC then that and other Gamecube and Wii games can be played Dolphin emulator with them being rendered at far higher resolutions too. Not exactly legal but...
#32
To be honest, I think it looks boss.

It's not gonna beat my Wavebird though!

Are there any impressions of these yet (they have been at trade shows)? Looks are not everything, feel counts too. The advantage I can see is they act as a classic controller (as they essentially are) so are slightly easier to use on a PC than Gamecube controllers currently are (but I'm sure the someone will drivers for the USB Gamecube controller hub coming out).

There is no laws against reverse engineering which is what emulating is. If BIOS are needed for it to work and these are distributed with the emulator that is a legal problem (in theory you should dump your own BIOS where needed but this is non-trivial) but Nintendo system emulators tend not to require BIOS. Now playing games on those. That form of backing up is format shifting, can't remember if that is legal in the UK yet.

There is also the fact that you need quite a beefy PC (I seem to remember for sound in some games especially) and there are misc glitches in games (including Rogue Squadron ones not working at all but these are unlikely to ever be released on an official virtual console).

True. If Hori make one it will be good though.

You're right about most 3rd party controllers. There are some exceptions though. Hori for one. Some of their controllers for various systems are very good, even better than official ones in some cases.

This is not the gamecube controller, but a redisgned classic controller pro which honestly looks more comfortable than the ccp as the sticks are more comfortable.

You can also buy smash with a black smash logos gamecube controller but you will need the 4 port usb gamecube adapter, I haven't seen the GC controller proper for preorder on its own yet only with ssb4.

I think these will be higher quality than the pdp standard controllers so may get one of these classic controllers for some Wii games like goldeneye or black ops RE and RE 0
