The box looks really nice but having seen the unboxing videos once you open it it'll be ripped apart. :-/

Then again, it's meant to be open though Nintendo could've used an easier method than forcing to rip the box.

Ace. Will Flubit it

I already have x4 pristine gamecube controllers. They'll work right?

Nobody knows how to milk that cash cow better than Nintendo do they.

Still, good price heat added.

Cannot really reference better to my comment better than mentioning the extended high capacity battery that the Wii U controller was blatantly designed around but left out for future purchase

I never bothered to purchase the bigger capacity battery but instead just plug in the cable to recharge whenever needed (Not once have I used the stand that came with my Wii U as the cable's a lot more efficient).

How so? They support like 5 different control schemes for Super Smash Bros, and they even revive the most popular control scheme for die-hard fans at a very reasonable price per controller which can also be used on Gamecube and Wii as well as Wii U (if you have the adapter).

Thats just the american packaging. Nintendo use that god awful packaging for all of their accessories in the US. Over here, thankfully, we always get a lovely reuseable box.

I got one of these unbranded NGC controllers and it does the job fine but the left analogue is a bit loose although it doesn't really affect gameplay.

reposting from the white GC pad thread as the newer runs of GC pads aren't the same as the originals. it's worth presuming these black ones will be like this until someone confirms otherwise...

'these white GC pads have inferior quality triggers to the original runs. i can confirm this too - the L on mine has a rattle and is stickier than it should be. might be worth waiting to see if the black smash edition pad is the same in this regard.

might be something to do with this, found while googling on the smash boards:

"The 3m cord white controllers lack metal bars in the analog slider elements older versions had. You can take them out of an old controller and put them in your white controller."

Couldn't agree more with you. Nintendo are on making money the most stupidest ways so they will get away for now.

Aren't you comparing two different things? These are the nintendo made pads not the cheaper licensed hori ones

I can see the headline now:

COMPANY DARE TO MAKE PROFIT
Nintendo today announced that they would start charging for the items it sells, as opposed to giving them away like Microsoft and Sony. Blah Blah Blah

nope i am talking about official nintendo pads...there is a difference between the original runs and the later white pad that launched with MKWii. in all likelyhood these will be the same as the white ones. it's not a deal breaker for most, but the triggers feel different.

If you're not bothered about a "genuine" controller then you can buy 2-3 controllers for this price elsewhere for more players to join! As for a genuine controller goes, they still sell for £25-35 on eBay so this is a great price, although as people have said, I can imagine there is a difference from the original, but if you haven't played for a while, you probably won't notice the difference!

100% correct, nobody! Apart from EA, Ubisoft, Activision, Microsoft, Sony etc etc.

I love how people say Nintendo like to milk products & franchise while totally ignoring annual release, minimal - to - no change / "HD remaster" games such as Fifa, COD, The Last of Us etc.

Meanwhile, Nintendo releases a product like a controller that has been off the market for over a decade and they're milking cows. Or release a Mario kart once in a consoles lifespan (5 - 6 years) and guess what, they're milking cows again!

Pffft.

This is awesome...

Someone on here works for hori. Honestly! Anyway commenting on the cash cow comment, its garbage. They don't charge for online play of any games and modem consoles and handhelds are pretty good at playing previous gen console/handheld games. Unlike the obvious big two. Heat for now ninty.

Just ordered two via Flubit for Christmas presents. worked out at £41.38 for two (£20.69 each).

Not a bad saving.

Ive got the new white official pad and its fine i can only assume this is the same. Stay away from hori. If you want to go third party you might as well go aliexpress cheap and save real money.

If its 99% of the way there compared to the original gamecube controllers im ok with that. You could always grab an old one and refurb it from ebay if your a diehard. Id rather spend time playing.

I cancelled my pre order few days back...game plus pad pus silly non sence adaptor 70 pound plus for 1 title? Plus an amibo? No thanks.... putting the money towards ps4/xbox as I play mk8...

All the cool kids already have Gamecube controllers to use.

good news! several peeps on smash boards are reporting it's better than the white GC pad

"The analog and csticks are perfect, probably the best I've ever used. Shoulder buttons are much better than the white GC controllers but I'm not sure if they are any better or worse than the shoulder buttons on the original/early (black, purple) GC controllers. Z button is a little worse I think but not really noticeably. All of the other buttons feel right. The plastic shell seems a bit lighter/cheaper but I actually like it."

are these better than the pro controller to use? im unsure on going back to wired controllers, people seem to be going mad for them though

It's that Smash time and nothing better than the NGC controllers for it! But if you're used to the Pro Controller, that's fine too.
