I'll probably be picking this up, with my 2 brothers both preferring GCN controllers. I'll have to experiment between the pro controller and this, though.

One port probably doesn't meet the power requirement for 4 controllers.

Then why do they have batteries?

What? Only the wireless controllers have batteries. Unless there's some weird 3rd party controller I haven't heard of...

 

Source: Used my controllers for over a decade, never changed a battery for 'em.

I hope this means GameCube Virtual Console games will finally be on the eShop.

For devices with low power consumption, sure. A GCN controller could drain one in a heartbeat -- especially the haptic feedback.

If this picture is correct (and every source I can find backs this up), the port does indeed supply power.

Nintendo shouldn't have bothered. People need to learn to let go of a three generation old controller.

I will be definitely getting one of these, maybe not straight away but when GC VC games come out.

The Pro controller might feel great for Smash anyway.

 

It's officially licensed too right? Thought people would be more excited with this...

Wii U getting better and better as time goes on, like a fine wine.

Whether Nintendo made an adapter for the GC controllers or not, the fact of the matter is that wireless controllers are frowned in tournaments because of interferences caused by wireless devices including cell phones and other consoles that have wireless controllers. From my stand point It was smart of Nintendo to have GC adapters as I'm interested in competitive Smash. 

 

EDIT: I just remembered the Wii U Pro controller, but I'm not entirely sure how it works as I don't have a Wii U.

All communication with the Pro controller is wireless. The competitive Smash scene is viewing this announcement as a godsend because of that.

I understand, with controllers like the Pro Controller, Nintendo has offered new 'normal' controllers. However, at the same time, I can't see any harm done whatsoever by allowing the option to use the GCN controller.

 

I wish they'd rerelease them. Mine are all worn out. =(

Will the Nintendo vox support the sensitivity levels of the L R buttons?  Because if it doesn't certain Gamecube games [if a Virtual Console was happening) will not work.
