Not The Wavebird But We'll Take It

Nintendo Wii Classic Controller Pro


Mario Kart Wii is without peer. Four competitive friends + beer = hilarity. But Nintendo classics just aren’t the same with the rectangular Wii control stick (original Nintendo controller notwithstanding). File this one under last months news, but Nintendo recently answered the call with the Wii Classic Controller Pro ($20), and we finally got our hands on a couple of units. The Classic Controller Pro includes two rows of shoulder buttons, moves the analog sticks to the controller’s center and ads some PlayStation GameCube Wavebird style hand grips. It also looks sharp dressed in gloss black. One humble request to Nintendo though: a wireless version, por favor.
