I'm looking for a good responsive GC/Wii wireless controller, So i can easily play the new RE and my other GC games. And I was looking for one with good battery life, and or rechargeable batteries, like the ones I have for my Wii motes. Or else I could just get a Classic controller, but that won't play my GC games.

The Wavebird has, and always will be, the cream of the Gamecubing crop, despite no Force feedback. I'm not sure if there are any wireless, rechargeable GC controllers...you could always get chargeable AAs...Wavebird uses 2 and lasts a lot of hours.

And where is a good place to find one?? I just checked Bestbuy's website, and Gamestops, and it didn't show up...

First of all, never shop at the dirt-bag-ish store GameStop. Second, eBay has your answer

Yeah, Gamestop isn't the 'pick-of-the-litter' for general practices but if you find a good store then it can be a nice place. Just look around there used section and you may find a good deal. Like the Wavebird, I picked up one in great condition for much lower then most prices online. I found one with perfect sticks and clean buttons for 17 USD which was a good deal. You will have to look for a good deal but be wary to pay up to 30 USD for a used one and upwards to 60 for a new one. I could never understand why Nintendo cut this line so fast. Too bad it doesn't have rumble though, but neither does the Classic so I guess you can't have everything. At least the Wavebird has great battery life.

Wait... Wolf in name... Fox in avatar... Don't make no sen-

The Wavebird was and still is one awesome wireless controller. I loved that thing.

Plain old gamer :)

Isn't this kinda like saying "Never eat McDonalds! Just go dumpster diving for your food"? I'm no fan of GS/EB, but they're certainly less troublesome than eBay.

Also, yes, totally wavebird for gamecube games. If you're looking for Virtual Console controller, though, it's hard to imagine finding something you'd like more than the classic controller with nyko's grip for it; plus you can pick it up for $3 at gamestop; use the store locator on the item's inventory page to find one with it near you

Yes, but on eBay you get games without stickers all over them that destroy the art or case and at GS it's a sticker on the spine, a sticker on the front, and a sticker on the back.

Wavebird all the way! I have two and they are precious to me. The batteries last FOREVER due to it being done with radio-waves. And it's comfier and lighter than the GC pad.

I'd be lost without them, well not lost, but I've had to buy a stinky CC.

Get ur ass to ebay boy!

Rawr!
