Wii Joystick

So I've had the pleasure to work on a Nintendo Wii and Gamecube compatible joystick prototype and I thought, to start off my blog, I'd share let you guys take a look. It's currently functional on both Gamecube and Wii. It has a japanese style joystick and, for now, hooks up to my wii through the gamecube port. I'm happy it's done because I myself, along with others I hear, prefer arcade controls over game pads. I took a spin with Fire Emblem, Capcom vs Snk 2 and Ikaruga for Gamecube (played on my wii) and then two virtual console titles, Wario Ware and Solomon's key. I have to say, it's absofreakinglutely awesome, too bad none of you can use it :)... For now.

Maybe I'll upload a gameplay video if you guys are nice :).

P.S. (I admit, I don't actually own a classics controller, because they are sold out (big surprise). Anyone want to send me one :)?)
