Why the Wii U has no gamecube controller ports

#1ImJordanPosted 9/21/2011 1:04:00 PM
The Wii U controller basically already has all the same buttons as the gamecube controller , so theres really no need for gamecube controller ports . The only thing missing is backwards compatiblity imo

Since I am always right, and you are always wrong, I am going to completly dismiss any factual things you have to say.

Also, darkjedilink never has anything inteligent to say.

Same number of buttons =/= same controller. The button layout for the A/B/X/Y buttons is completely different between the GameCube and Wii U controllers, which would make many GCN games (Super Smash Bros. being a good example) extremely awkward to play, even if Nintendo allowed customizable button layouts. Also, I'm assuming the triggers aren't going to click like the GCN controller's triggers did, which pretty much ruins games look Super Mario Sunshine that rely on them.

Well, the GC VC rumor, could always be...you know... a rumor. Or they could make pressure sensitive buttons. You know.

It's kind of their job...to build things. Granted, the 3DS is pretty much a slap in my face whenever I bring out this argument, but nevertheless...

...At least they TRIED to fix that monstrosity...

because Nintendo wants to sever themselves from everything that once made them good?

I mean, the Gamecube controller is the best controller, Gamecube was the last great system, and other such things

The thing that pisses me off, is the fact that we can't connect the controller straight to the system like with the GameCube controllers. The classic controller needs to be plugged into a Wiim controller and that sucks.

I'm guessing if enough people complain they'll most likely make a similar thing to the Classic Controller for those gamecube games and games that use a similar control scheme, if they aren't already working on it. Do we even know for sure if the Wii U is Gamecube game compatible?

It will not be able to play GameCube discs. This was announced in an interview at E3.
