SNES Controller for Wii

If you are a retro game mania, you probably are not too fond of the whole Nintendo Wiimote thing where you fling your arms around. Not that I hate the Wii and the Wiimote idea, but I guess a modder known by the name of Raphael wasn’t too excited about the whole Wiimote business and modded his Wii so that he could actually use his SNES controller with the Wii. He hacked the controller into a USB circuit to connect it with the Wii and he sure seems to be having fun. The process seems a bit of a pain in the arse, but if you have the patience, it’s totally doable.

Now all I wish was that Nintendo would be kind enough to send turboGadgets a Wii and a SNES controller so I can try out some old Legend of Zeldas I’ve been longing to play for a few years now…

    I heard that these were being officially produced by Nintendo but only going to be released in Japan?

    If it can go one way, can it go the opposite?
    I’d like to see a Classic Controller for USB.

    Or perhaps create an adapter to use them on PC.

    I know that there is a way to do it through Glovepie, but that method is a little troublesome, not to mention expensive, and it requires a Wii-Mote. What I and many others would like to see is either a USB version of the Classic Controller with all functioning buttons, d-pad and sticks, or atleast an adapter box or adapter cable to turn it into a USB input.
