Nintendo Wii To Support GameCube Wavebird

No untangling wires on Wii

Wii will support GameCub's WavebirdAfter this year's E3 event in Los Angeles many gamers were debating whether the Wii would allow for Wavebird support. This was due primarily to the RF controller receivers that need to be plugged into the Gamecube docking station.

It now turns out that those ever lucky guys at IGN recently tinkered around with one of the final versions of the Wii hardware. They discovered that there should be no problem for gamers to play their current GameCube titles using the wireless Wavebird control pad, something that many had been unsure of.

IGN managed to take a glimpse at the GameCube docking station port on the Wii and were happy to report back that it’s perfectly flat. This means that it shouldn’t pose a problem inserting the RF controller receiver into one of the four controller ports hidden under a neatly concealed flap.

This is indeed great news for gamers who wish to play Nintendo’s back catalogue of GamCcube games on the Wii. I think that most will have already become acquainted with the benefits of wireless controllers and once converted, won’t wish to revert back to the tangled mess of the now outdated wired controller.
