This month, Nintendo will begin offering this awesome new Wii controller, which seems like it’ll be just perfect for things like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and GameCube games. Mostly (entirely) because it’s a GameCube controller! That’s right, Nintendo is manufacturing their dead system’s controller again for sale to Wii owners.
However, this isn’t the same old GameCube controller you didn’t play Cubivore with! The new version comes in Wii white (of course) and has a 3 meter (10 foot) cord that is 50% longer than the regular GameCube controllers. Which leads us to ask: why didn’t they go with the Gamecube controller with the really long, and also intangible, cord?
