Loved the Wavebird for GC. Definitely getting one of these for $10.

Just a note: The controller is being shipped by GamezForLess and not Buy.com.

I've been looking for some more GC controllers. This one has positive reviews and for $10, I'll take a shot. Thanks OP!

Yes, I need to add that to OP.

I am in for one myself, we'll see how it stacks up. I could probably resell it for this anyway.

Looks good, bought one, thx OP

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

The above pic has me excited, looks like a better (slightly-wider) grip angle and less mid-frame bulk that the original WaveBird. :bouncy:

No, and I ordered about the same time also. Maybe it is up to the marketplace seller to send those? IDK, this is my first buy.com market place order. (The last one I tried was over a year ago, for a bunch of cheap blu-rays and it got canceled).

Not a bad deal, but after the Smash Brawl fever died down, wavebirds have become fairly easy to find at gamestop. Yes, they're used, but at least they're first party quality.

Yes, but from what I understand these seem to be just as high quality as Wavebirds. Also Wavebirds don't support rumble. If the Sixaxis has taught me anything it's that I really miss rumble when it's not there.

Hopefully that d-pad works better than the 360 one does.

Finally received confirmation.

Are you talking about the 360 D-Pad on the one on the shockwave?

Hmmm... No actual shipping confirmation yet. Wonder if it'll get canceled or something, So do you think multiples of those receivers will work with the Wii? Seems like the offset style would casue issues.
