Japan is getting all the good stuff once again. Previously we've seen Nintendo release a Super Famicom controller that is Wii compatible and now the company is at it again, this time with a GameCube controller meant for use with the Wii. Yes, it appears to be an actual Wii-white GameCube controller that connects to the Wii console in some unspecified fashion with a three meter cord. The cost? ¥2000. Presumably we aren't getting this item here in North America. Yes, I could import one, but considering that I can't read Japanese, I'd have no way of knowing which buttons on the controller to press. Do you know what they call X buttons in Japan? Neither do I. Nobody does! And that three meter cord has me uneasy. That's a metric measurement, and metric is a system of units that mystifies us here in North America. I bet the control stick moves in radians instead of degrees, too. No, no, I take it all back; we're better off if this controller stays on the other side of the planet. Bringing it stateside is just too unsettling.
