Hey, I just got a Wii, and I didn't have a Gamecube before, so I was wondering if anyone knew of where I could get some of the Nintendo Gamecube Controllers (not 3rd party). I have tried amazon and ebay, but have not found anything on them yet, but if you have any links off of either of those sites they would help. And by the way, something cheaper that $24.99.

Thanks!

Try to buy the Wavebird controllers. It's made by Nintendo and they are wireless. It might be more expensive than the wired controllers.

I am apprehensive about getting 3rd party controllers, since every single one I have bought has had a problem and they don't last very long.

if u hate 3rd party..don't even think about buying used controllers - they tend to have misaligned joysticks - used too much and ur characters will move even without pushing a joystick! soo buying used will more likely giv eu this problem.

just buy an official nintendo wavebird. yes they are 35$ but hey, they last.
