OMC79 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

Putting all the controller options (including Wii) in the balance with the GC adapter and consider the pros and cons, does actually a little convenience of button layout and nostalgia tilt the balance in favor of the adapter? Only a GC VC could really tilt it (and then again maybe not, the other controllers would do well too).

The adapter should be sold separately at a good price considering the very, very limited use it will have, but I bet it will be only be available as am expensive, limited edition pack-in. If it would be as cheap as $15-20, it will indeed be a saving-money option.
There's is one big problem with the original GC controllers, the rubber on the stick gets off very easily, as time goes by, it will be harder to find a working controller in good condition. The only option will be buying a new Smash-GC edition that will be expensive.

Some games require you to unplug the add-on controllers, a controller like the one on the petition would be as if it is hard-wired. It will break compatibility completely. Maybe that's why they didn't listen to that petition but opted for a worse choice instead.

The WiiU expects a Wii Remote or GamePad to work correctly and ensure 100% compatibility. A firmware update for such controller should let you get a pad-controlled pointer to navigate as with the other controllers. Not to mention that it will bring a similar problem as with the GC adapter as only games developed with this new type of controller in mind would work.

@Kirk
I think you are having little overreaction over colors. If you have a broken GC controller, I bet you could change some parts.
@Light
It will require a firmware update that wouldn't make mandatory a pointer device... For Nintendo that would be crazy talk (but is not crazy talk to make a one-game-only adapter). The PDP controller is the next best thing, IMO.

This gimmick will only be a collectible item in the future as it has little use. for the same GC Controller feeling, the PDP GC Style Classic Controller Pro is a better option and even has better designs (not to mention it has the -, + and Home buttons). On the bright side, if you need a replacement controller for your good ol' GC, this is the chance to get a brand new one (with a larger cable). I for one won't rush to the store to get this at launch date.

Inferior hardware but superior minds to back it up. The Vita is like Neanderthals, all strength but no brains, PS All-Stars is the proof of it, they had the chance and they blew it. I doubt Nintendo will have to shut down Sora and outsource the patching to someone else to finish the released game and make it playable.
If PSV is so powerful, why it can only handle novels? Even the GBA could have handled those.

I think it's more of a coincidence than a nod and a very vague one. Samus has to crouch before morphing. If she couldn't morph, she would have to crawl to move after crouching. It sounds to me like a logical way to describe the varia suit morphing ball ability. Besides, you have to be a real noob to call Samus, Metroid. When I read that stupid meme, all I could imagine was a "Metroid" trying to crawl with its claws. Bravo? For the game, but not for this nod, IF it is a nod.

This video is a fragment of the track I mentioned, after Luigi demonstrates the proper handling of the disk cards, they show another procedure at the disk writter. That's when they carry the NES cart, I thought it was the whole track, not this fragment. I wish they could have put the commercial where that still with the girl and the writter was taken from. Now, that will be vintage.
