As of right now, it's just the Mayflash Wii U/PC adapter, and it currently only supports one controller (all four ports act as P1), but it's a start!

u/Rhinne · 119 pointsr/gaming
u/somerandomgamer0 · 82 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use the Sony Gold headset with my Switch, and it works great. While a headphone jack would be nice, I hope you realize that it's still possible to use wireless headphones with the Switch. You don't have to play with low or no volume!

u/milesdavisjr · 74 pointsr/gaming

Probably something like this.

u/punkonjunk · 72 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I absolutely 100% agree with you. I suffer from wrist pain that's entirely my fault from gaming too much and typing with bad posture for a long time, and the joycons are so close to perfect but no system remap option is awful. And they are tiny. and they break easily.

On your end, you can use the mayflash Magic-NS to use any other system's controller - which would let you use the Xbox adaptive controller, the ultimate in modular controllers for disabled folks. It's a really neat controller and an amazing platform for custom solutions - foot buttons, long cables on a pair of sticks that can reach your hands separately, etc. Really, really amazing platform. This guy kind of goes over some of the unique caveats -

u/dmalvano · 56 pointsr/gaming

Or just buy make it so I can use this for it

u/Jarton · 56 pointsr/gaming

Also, if you happen to already have an N64 controller you can Buy an adapter to plug it into your PC via USB.

Edit: I do recommend this item. I use it myself. Also thanks for the gold :D

u/AlphaNERDSolid · 55 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The article does not go into detail. Seems like all he did is plugging it into an adapter. The adapter he used is the Mayflash MagicNS adapter. 8bitdo also offers such an adapter, however that is strictly wireless.

It's cool to see that he used an adapter for the adaptive controller on the Switch but at the end of the day it's all that he did. Nothing new in this regard.

u/Psyonix_Corey · 53 pointsr/nintendo

Hi kevcorky,

While Rocket League does require a higher connection quality than some other titles, we do have a lot of players with solid wireless connections that play just fine. In terms of our internal testing of Switch, it's running great over wifi.

That said, we do know some players have run into issues with their home wireless networks and online play, and there are a few things to discuss on that front.

  1. There is an officially licensed Ethernet adapter for the Switch available if you experience connection quality issues over wifi.
  2. We are implementing additional network options in a future update to let users control the rate of network updates sent to/from the game client. This may improve reliability on some networks where our frequent update rate can cause problems.
u/Sharrakor · 51 pointsr/gaming

I replaced a full set of 4 N64 joysticks and thought it was incredibly easy to do. The joysticks are sold as a very contained component.

u/MajorasAss · 50 pointsr/smashbros

> wired Wii U compatible Gamecube controller

I refuse to believe anyone who keeps saying this shit has even held a Wii U Pro controller, or hasn't seen the link to the Wii U GC Mayflash adaptor that gets posted every other thread.

u/brosenfeld · 47 pointsr/gaming

Read the words above the price.


Google tells me that it means "Playstation Move Navigation Controller"

Amazon has it for $22.88

u/Ryan3395 · 45 pointsr/gaming

There's the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection. Includes MG, MG2, MGS1, MGS1:VR, MGS2, MGS3, MGS:PW, and MGS4.
> Edit: $75 on Amazon

u/caninehere · 44 pointsr/GameDeals

There's a few but this is the one I have.

Looking into it now the Steam Controller is apparently one of the only controllers that doesn't work with it - because the Steam Controller doesn't have Bluetooth + blocks it from working in wired mode apparently.

But the adapter works with:

  • Wireless - DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Switch Pro, Joy-Con, Wii U Pro controller, and XB1
  • Wired - DualShock 3, DualShock 4, Switch Pro, XB1 pad, Xbox 360 controllers and fight sticks, and standard wired USB controllers (with the Steam Controller being one of the few exceptions).

    I have only really used it with the Switch, but it works with the PC + PS3 as well which is neat. I usually used an XB1 gamepad or DualShock 4 and it worked perfectly with both. I eventually bought a Switch Pro controller though.
u/MrPerson0 · 43 pointsr/smashbros

Please note that the official Nintendo Switch LAN uses the ASIX AX88179 chipset, which is basically the best one for the Switch to use and the one you should recommend. I would completely ignore the first LAN adapter you linked to, and primarily suggest the second one you linked to, or this one which is a few cents cheaper.

u/OZONE_TempuS · 41 pointsr/patientgamers

Metal Gear Solid has six mainline canon installments (technically eight but I'm disregarding the NES games since I don't think they're worth playing and they're both covered in Metal Gear Solid) that spans fifty years and covers the arcs of many characters.

Most the games have some sort of deep narrative that run throughout the entire game but the stories for the most part are very good, albeit a bit convoluted on your first play through. The games sort of flop between very serious story telling and self parody, meaning they never taken themselves too seriously and they're full of little quirks and complete fiction.

The gameplay is fantastic too, the only one I'd say that has aged noticeably is the first one but the second Solid game made massive improvements to gameplay that stayed with the series and was added onto.

It's one of my favorite franchises and Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater are two of my all time favorite games, definitely worth a shot if you haven't already played them. If you have a PS3 then you can get the Legacy Collection which contains all the canon entries except for Phantom Pain but it's on PS3 as well.

u/yashwinusa123 · 40 pointsr/PS3

boiiiii get a goddamn ps3. you won't regret it.


u/1moe7 · 35 pointsr/Games

If you've never played MGS, this is the way to go, buddy. You won't regret it.

u/Stepherzzzzzz · 35 pointsr/wiiu

I would recommend the Hori Battle Pad for Wii U over these particular controllers.

u/CaspianX2 · 32 pointsr/patientgamers

Whew! I swear I am not a shill for Amazon. I just appreciate a good deal when I see it.

u/FznCheese · 30 pointsr/PS4

Not sure what price range you were thinking but I love my PS Gold wireless headset. I've seen them go on sale quite often but I don't regret picking them up for $100 when they first came out. They would allow him to get his game on with the sound cranked without disturbing you and all the neighborhood. They also create virtual surround sound which is pretty cool. The ps4 comes with a little mono (single ear bud) mic that can plug into the controller but it is poor quality and not very comfortable. It works in a pinch but if your husband plans to do any voice chat for online games he will want a better mic than what comes with the ps4 and I've had no complaints using the ps gold headset.

It will also work with your pc. So if he's a pc gamer he can get double duty out of it.

u/RobertAPetersen · 30 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I had two different pairs of left joycons drift on me.

Finally said fuck it and bought a $20 adaptor that lets me use my PS4 DualShock controller on my Switch. I’ve had that thing since the PS4 launched and have had zero issues with it. Switch just sees it as a Switch Pro controller. Works brilliantly, even wireless, rumble, and gyro.

u/F00LY · 29 pointsr/Overwatch

Just use a controller in the left hand and a mouse in the right.

Edit :

This is what I use in my left hand, and a Logitech G602 in my right.

Fine movement controller; Precision aiming.

u/social_gamer · 27 pointsr/GameDeals

I was about to purchase this as "The Definitive Experience" sounded more like the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid: Legacy Collection with Ground Zeroes + MGS:V and then was let down with it only being 2 games an their dlc.

u/[deleted] · 25 pointsr/truegaming

The Legacy Collection comes out next month (July 9th). I'd wait and get that if I was you.

It includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition.

And you should play all of them in order. Maybe skip the first 2 if you're not big on retro games.

Edit: Just noticed it doesn't come with the first MGS. You can pick that up on PSN like you planned and play it while you're waiting for the Legacy Collection to come out.

Edit 2: Actually, it comes with a voucher for MGS1. So it's up to you if you want to wait or not.

u/juken · 25 pointsr/gaming

This adapter

u/editorgolden · 24 pointsr/GameDeals

yes but you have to get the adapter

u/yohan12 · 22 pointsr/playstation

The PlayStation wireless gold headset is the best headset I've owned for the exact situation you're in. They are wireless with pretty good battery life, plug and play on all three systems, and even though you have extra money, they are cheap.

u/athros · 22 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but if you're not - Link

u/HandHeldPlague · 22 pointsr/PSVR

Sony just needs to update this controller by giving it motion tracking.

Ooh, just found this. Looks very easy to make it work.

u/rockincellist · 21 pointsr/smashbros

Nintendo re-produced some white GC controllers for use on the Wii in Japan, but some people sell those over here too on Amazon.

u/GomaN1717 · 20 pointsr/Games

If you get a Mayflash Adapter, you can still use your old GCN controllers.

u/faortiz · 20 pointsr/wiiu

I purchased two adapters on amazon and here's what I got.

Both are the same, inputs are only for OTHER Wii remote accessories. I'm so frustrated because I was excited to finally use my GC controllers. But anyway, I'm trying to ask for a replacement but Amazon doesn't let me and says it's only for standard refund. DAMMIT.

Has this happened to anyone? How did you handle it? I don't want to pay for returned shipping and I would REALLY like to receive replacements already instead of having to look online again and purchase two more. I didn't even know that they made these? The picture clearly shows a slot for GC controllers. But yeah, all help/advice appreciated.

EDIT: I didn't mean to give amazon any bad light, they gave me a full refund right away and I'm still going to buy another pair of adapters to use my GC controller. Didn't mean to rant so much, I just thought this unlucky fail was hilarious enough for reddit to see.

EDIT2: I realized after reading some comments that I forgot to mention that I own the Wii U, although I hoped it was rather obvious seeing as how I posted this in r/WiiU. Thanks to those who rightfully assumed this

u/MrGentleNinja · 20 pointsr/xboxone

The adapter shown here that the Adaptive Controller is connecting to is the Mayflash Magic NS Wireless Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch. I currently use to connect my regular Xbox controller to the Switch for Super Mario Odyssey where it works flawlessly, and I plan to do so again for Smash. I highly recommend it!

u/ChibiSheep · 19 pointsr/smashbros

I stand by using this adapter to play with my GCN controller. That's how I play MK8 and all of my virtual console games. Hoping that it works with Smash U.

u/reddittrees2 · 19 pointsr/todayilearned

From there TIL someone finally made a good alternative to Adaptoid :

u/YellowTorpedo · 19 pointsr/Games

There's actually something like this that they announced. It's more like a classic controller pro, but still. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: This Thing

u/RandomPandah · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Just tried using the mayflash gamecube adapter, it works if you use pc mode! There isn't any noticeable delay.

Link to adapter:

EDIT: You need to have the black cable plugged into the dock (The white one isn't needed for only 1 controller, don't know about multiple controllers) and have your controller in the player 2 port.

EDIT 2: Thanks to /u/IcyAthene we know that the C-stick is not properly mapped and the analog stick is basically a DPad and that multiple controllers behave as one. I only tested it in mario kart so i didn't realize it :(

u/JacobRaser · 18 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

TL;DR: eSports

r/smashbros is buzzing over rumors of a smash bros wii u port and Smash Bros Melee on the rumored GameCube Virtual Console. They are hopeful that the Wii U gamecube adapter will work with these titles on Switch, or that a similar device will be made for Switch. The dock has the USB ports to use with this. The smash community works (for the most part) on the basis of people bringing their TV and console, and (in the wii u community) their GC adapter, to events to set-up. The bag has space for the dock which would brought to these events. Excluding the GC adapter, and that smash is all players on a single large screen, look at the end of the original Switch video for a similar scenario.

u/OscarExplosion · 17 pointsr/patientgamers

Get the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection

it has every major Metal Gear Solid (1-4) game you would need to play besides Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Otherwise if you can't find the Legacy Collection get the HD Collection. Keep in mind though if you do get the HD collection instead you will have to seperatly get the original Metal Gear Solid (It's on PSN for PS3) and Metal Gear Solid 4.

Play them in order:

  • Metal Gear Solid

  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
u/Deathrayer · 17 pointsr/NintendoSwitch If you don’t want to wait until 2019 to play smash with GCC you can get this adapter, which works just as well as the official Nintendo one, and even works for pc. I’ve owned it for almost 2 years now and haven’t had a single issue

u/Astec123 · 17 pointsr/whatisthisthing

It's a pokemon go Go-tcha

It's for catching pokemon and spinning what are known as stops in the Pokemon Go mobile game.


It's based on a Chinese fitness tracking watch but all the fitness/time features are removed in place of it's compatibility with being used for pokemon go plus which is the watch designed for the game specifically. The Go-tcha is a cheaper option with more features than the official device.

u/Polarthief · 16 pointsr/smashbros

Same here, haven't tested mine on switch, but it is in fact Mayflash and works perfectly on Wii U.

(anyone reading this in the UK for the record, I live in the US, but the picture is the same and the company is also the same. Here's the link to the US one that I currently own)

u/DeniedScout · 16 pointsr/emulation

You're better off just getting something like this. It also lets you connect Wiimotes and TR Wiimotes (the ones with WiiMotion+ built in) without a Bluetooth dongle or any extra BT stacks. I'd say it's definitely worth it.

u/CajunTurkey · 16 pointsr/gaming
u/joshmary1 · 15 pointsr/SwitchHacks

You don't even need a hacked switch I use this MAYFLASH MAGIC-NS Wireless...

Wirelessly connect your PS4, PS3, Nintendo Switch Pro, Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, Wii U Pro, and Xbox One S Bluetooth Controllers to your Nintendo Switch, PS3 or PC system. The wired PS4, PS3, Nintendo Switch Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox 360 Controllers and fight sticks, and standard wired USB Controllers like Logitech rumble gamepad F510 and F310 can be connected to your Nintendo Switch, PS3 and PC system. it also supports NEOGEO mini. Plug and play.

u/SegataSanshiro · 15 pointsr/GameDeals

If you still have your old N64 controllers, you're probably better off buying an adapter instead. I have no experience with this particular USB controller, but I've noticed that third party "retro USB" controllers tend to be worse than their first party predecessors.

u/jzorbino · 15 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

>f. I heard a brief mention on a reddit thread about game cube controllers working with the switch? Is this accurate? I happen to have a cube in another room with 3 controllers. They are wired of course.

OP, it looks like your other questions were answered, but for this one here's what you need to know. The Switch dock has a USB port that will recognize various headsets/controllers. Not sure what all will work but one of the accessories that does is the wired Gamecube controller adapter that Nintendo made for Wii U. You just need to get one of these to use your old ones:

u/Uebeltank · 15 pointsr/smashbros

If you have 7 friends just kidding no one has, you would need an extra $1680 for 7 3DS + Sm3D4sh to enjoy 'ya stuff, totalling $3226!

Oh yeah don't forget if all eight of you want an amiibo of each, you will need a total of $7958!

But to prevent arguing who has the Wii U let's buy 7 wii u's plus a GameCube Controller adaptor for $20 each.

And of course you would need 7 games of $60

Putting you at a grand total of $10618 That's a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan*

This is, of course without the unknown price off the "new" 3DS and 3DS amiibo adaptor.

u/that_random_eskimo · 15 pointsr/gaming

You can buy a replacement joystick for your Nintendo 64 controller on Amazon for 10.95$.

u/HirokiProtagonist · 14 pointsr/smashbros

more info for /u/chickengrande:

Melee and Brawl (and mods for both) are emulated using [Dolphin] (, an open-source emulator that's available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. If your computer can run a modern game at a good fps, then it can most likely emulate smash.

For a controller, I'd recommend using a gamecube controller and a [gamecube->USB adapter] ( Of course, if you're just trying it out, you could use a PS4/xbox controller or even keyboard&mouse.

As for getting the game itself, the proper, legal way to do it is to buy the game disc and rip the ISO (the game file) using a modified wii. That said, if you use your creativity, it's not hard to find the files online (no asking for links!).

u/Turbulentclusterhunk · 13 pointsr/smashbros

I'm assuming that your controller already connects just fine to your pc. If you need an adapter, i'd recommend the [mayflash] (

Once that's done, you should follow the guide on anther's ladder to properly set up melee for online practice. Instead of the basic 5.0 Dolphin, anther's requires 5.9 Faster Melee build of dolphin. Anyway the guide can be found here:

As for online resources, ssbm tutorials has great videos detailing character specific tech (falco lasers, fox practice drills, marth chaingrab guide, etc.), universal tech (wavedashing, dashdancing, directional influence), and just general pieces of advice to newcomers.

I'd also recommend Uncle Punch training mode. This is a mod of melee's event mode designed to help practice universal tech such as L cancelling, smash di, or ledgedashing.

u/mennydrives · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This thing:

As a warning it's a bit finicky and as far as I've tested it, it only works with the Switch AC Adapter or my (USB-C) laptop AC adapter. Much like the official dock, it needs charging-capable power to work. I tried plugging a USB-A to USB-C cable into it and it was a no-go for Switching to "dock mode".

u/sendblink23 · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You can't or else every bluetooth controller would work by default. You need to buy a 3rd party usb bluetooth adapter like this one:

No idea if that thing(xiaomi mi bluetooth gamepad) works for it but ps3, ps4, xbox 360, xbox one, wii u pro controllers do work with the Nintendo Switch with it.

u/Rodrigo_Loco · 13 pointsr/patientgamers

I think its this one, on mobile and the Amazon app only goes back so far. May Flash N64 Controller Adapter for PC USB by May Flash

u/themcs · 13 pointsr/gaming

This would be better, and there are drivers for it.

u/lordskelzor · 12 pointsr/gaming

If you haven't played the games already pick up the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection when it becomes available

Some of the best games ever made

u/Mutericator · 12 pointsr/Games

Dunno why you'd pay $24 for a converter when you can just pay $32 plus shipping for a new wired one that you can also use on the 360:

EDIT: Also note the "New from $23.99" as well, so there ya go.

u/giubaloo · 12 pointsr/PS4

I have this and this and I'd highly recommend them both.

u/farmerbb · 11 pointsr/WiiHacks

If you just want the system menu on Dolphin, you can download it from within Dolphin itself by going to Tools -> Perform Online System Update.

If you want to backup the full contents of your Wii's NAND to use with Dolphin, you'll first need to softmod your Wii using LetterBomb. Then, install the Homebrew Channel and BootMii. Open up BootMii and there will be an option to back up your Wii's NAND to your SD card. You can then import this backup into Dolphin by going to Tools -> Manage NAND -> Import BootMii NAND Backup.

As for the sensor bar, the DolphinBar works well with Dolphin and lets you connect your Wii Remotes to your PC in addition to acting as a sensor bar.

u/Matsurosuka · 11 pointsr/mariokart

You can use these to play MK8 with Gamecube controllers. I've had one since MK8 came out and it is still working great.

u/JeddakofThark · 11 pointsr/gaming

So, I just ran across mine the other day...

Is there an N64 to USB converter?

Edit: There is!

u/andtheZero · 11 pointsr/SSBM

Dolphin is free. Go to and follow their guide for downloading Faster Melee's most recent version. Faster Melee is a version of Dolphin that runs smoother for online play, and is pretty much required for playing people online using smashladder.

You're gonna need to download an ISO file of melee, which is basically the game ripped from the disc. You can try googling it and it shouldnt be too hard. Careful of sketch websites.

If you've been watching for a while you might know the basic terminology already but the SSBMTutorials youtube channel has a lot of good info about the tech. Basic things like L cancelling and Wavedashing can be a little awkward to understand without being shown.

It's a little tough to get rolling if you don't have a friend to play with all the time that's at your level, but the "Friendlies" tab in smashladder should work ok.

You're gonna need a gamecube adapter. You can buy the official nintendo one, or you can get the Mayflash 4 port. They're basically identical.

u/Meflakcannon · 11 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

YUP. The gamecube sticks stuck into the housing for the N64 sticks works great. I bought this exact one from amazon and it's been a dream. Much more sensitive than the original stick style and it feels sturdier in every way. (I was playing through OOT and MM before BOTW came out)

Edit: You do not need special screwdrivers to replace the controller joysticks. Just Philips Head

u/theDreamDaddy · 11 pointsr/SwitchHacks

I personally use my PS4 controller on the Switch with the 8bitdo adapter and it works great wirelessly with rumble and motion as well. Also connects to PC. I haven’t tried it myself but the Xbox One controller should work too.

For any curious, there is also a Mayflash adapter which looks like it does basically the same as the 8bitdo one for around the same price.

u/erikb42 · 10 pointsr/Games

No, because there is more to it than story. Over the series Kojima has done a ton of 4th wall breaking and the games are quite self-aware. Honestly, you should pick up the Legacy Pack and give them all a quick run through. The games aren't terribly long, but do have a decent amount of replay ability.

u/villanx1 · 10 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I'm not going to recommend multiplatform games as I'm unsure of whether or not you have a 360/Wii/etc.

  1. Valkyria Chronicles - (Mostly) Turn-based strategy game, with RPG elements. Gets pretty hard (at least for me) decently long.

  2. Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection - Pretty much every canon Metal Gear game. Stealth-Action at it's finest with an insane story and cast of characters. Includes the HD remasters of MGS2 and 3.

  3. Yakuza 4 - RPG/Brawler set in a fictionalized Kabukichō (a well known Red light district in Tokyo). You can spend your time cracking skulls, doing random favors for people, playing mahjong, or chatting it up with a hostess.
u/cocobandicoot · 10 pointsr/PS3

A bit of a novel, but I hope you find this helpful, OP.

First, to comment on what happened on your call with Microsoft: maybe it's possible you just got one of the really bad reps? But then again, they got a supervisor involved and they still wouldn't just fix the situation for you? Especially seeing as you hadn't even used your subscription... that is pretty ridiculous. Well, I'm confident that you'll find the PlayStation experience an enjoyable one.


Honestly, this is probably the best time to try out a PS3. We're closing out on this generation of consoles and some of the best games of the last few years have been PlayStation exclusives. Especially if you've been using an Xbox 360 this whole time, you're about ready to meet a whole new world of incredible titles.

Quick edit: Just wanted to clarify... I'm including links to Amazon just as an easy way for you to learn more about individual titles. But just as /u/undeadwolfy mentioned:

>You can buy most of these pre-owned at a decent price. Some are digital so they're not much cheaper but still great.

So first and foremost, I highly recommend anything by Naughty Dog -- they are arguably the best developer in the entire industry right now. They released four titles on the PS3: Uncharted 1, 2 & 3 (each game is a must-play), and the absolute masterpiece that is The Last of Us. You've probably heard plenty of praise for The Last of Us (and it is well deserved), but I would recommend saving the best for last. It's such an awesome game that, after completing it, nothing else I played interested me anymore. It took like a month to get back into the gaming groove, so I'd save that 'til after you beat the Uncharted trilogy. It's that good.

Aside from that, there are some other great titles I'd highly recommend. I don't know what kind of games you're into, so I'll just list all those that I've liked, personally:

  • Metal Gear Solid saga (MGS 1-3 were released on PS1 & PS2, but they've since been rereleased in HD for PS3, alongside MGS 4).

  • Heavy Rain (A very story driven game, where the choices you make can drastically affect the storyline. Plus... boobs.)

  • Beyond Two Souls (Brand new, just came out. Similar to Heavy Rain in its execution -- story driven.)

  • God of War trilogy (Awesome, mature platformer. The first two games were for PS2, but were released in HD alongside GOW3 on PS3. Also has boobs.)

  • Little Big Planet 1 or 2 (A great couch multiplayer side scroller. Lots of fun, more of a kids game... or a game to play with drunk adults.)

  • Infamous 1 & 2 (An interactive comic book. An "open world" platformer that lets you shoot lightning from your hands. Has a cool element where you can choose to be good or evil.)

    Not to mention plenty of other great exclusives (Rachet & Clank series, Resistance trilogy, Valkyria Chronicles and more) and the tons of PS1 and PS2 games on the PlayStation Store for cheap, playable on your PS3 if you want to go old school. (Not to mention the many PS2 games being rereleased for PS3 in HD glory... I'd recommend Shadow of the Colossus, which happens to be free for PlayStation Plus members this month... hint hint.) Of course, all the multiplatform games are also here (Battlefield, Bioshock, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, etc.).

  • Oh, did I mention the PS3's online multiplayer is free?
  • And if you've got Netflix, you don't need to pay Sony a cent to watch it (unlike a certain other console's "Gold" requirement).

    That said, however, if you really want to jump in the game, PlayStation Plus is worth every penny -- a ton of free games each month (and we're talking major titles, in addition to a handful of indies), plus a large variety of other system-enhancing features and discounts. And if you're looking at getting a PS4, getting PS+ is a no-brainer. For one, it is required for online multiplayer on the PS4 (no such requirement on the PS3, but hey, they've got to make their money somehow). But what's awesome is that one PS+ account will work across both the PS3 & PS4, and enable you to get free games for each console for as long as you are a subscriber, with free games on the PS4 appearing on day one.

    Welcome to the new age. Now cue up some Imagine Dragons and get ready for a freaking awesome experience. We're glad to have you.

This is not true.

There isn't any best controller as it is pure preference, the older controllers generally have a stickbox that feels less resistant than the newer ones.
The coating on the new WiiU controllers is different aswell.

Also the official WiiU adapter has a great 3rd party equivalent from mayflash found here.

u/Iniquitus · 10 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/Kardif · 9 pointsr/wiiu

I recommend the hori battle controllers

They're pretty easy to find, and only $25. The pdp ones work too.

If you're dead-set on a nintendo-brand classic controller, get the classic pro, and you'll have to get them through amazon or ebay, it'll run around 25-30 shipping included.

u/Pseudogenesis · 9 pointsr/smashbros

Netplay is amazing now, and fairly easy to set up. Only thing you really need is a USB-GCC adapter which you can get for less than $20

u/Jakesta7 · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I have the Mayflash one and it works excellent. It was too difficult to find an official one back in the Wii U days. I'm assuming it works for Switch too. No issues whatsoever personally and it has nearly 5 stars on Amazon.


Figured I should clarify my comments here:

I do not own a Switch yet (plan to get one Black Friday), but I use it all the time on my Wii U and it works flawlessly. Based on reviews, it looks like it works flawlessly on the Switch as well. I can't imagine it would be any different.

u/about_that_crazy · 9 pointsr/gaming

I don't have a wii u. Is there a difference in performance to this one on Amazon for $45 (fulfilled by AMZN).

u/mbbird · 9 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

True, $10

I hadn't shopped around because it wasn't my Switch, and Splatoon is gonna be a bit janky anyway because nobody else is using Ethernet, but the Nintendo one is $25 for some reason lmao

u/virtigo21125 · 9 pointsr/smashbros
  1. Melee disks will be pretty expensive anywhere you find one unless someone knows of some sort of steal. Running it on an emulator can work if you have a legit gaming rig and a Mayflash adapter for your controller.

  2. Melee runs just fine on a Wii.

  3. Holy hell, ditch that abomination of a controller and please never make me look at that again. This is the go-to controller for smashers to buy, and its price has dropped by almost 50% in the past months, so get it now for sure.

  4. Depending on context, "tech" either is shorthand for technology, which is applied advanced techniques, or is referring to pressing L or R right before hitting the ground from being launched by an attack, causing you to either roll or get up quickly depending on how you hold the control stick.

Fikk den donert til meg da jeg var på SGDQ 2016, før jeg fikk den brukte jeg en svart Smash 4 Gamecube-kontroller.

You need to hack one of these in there

u/SpeaksTheTruthYes · 9 pointsr/gaming

I was going to say Final Fantasy 10 or 12, but it's hilarious how much MGS takes the cake.

Hey, OP. Get the Legacy Collection for
so you can play most of the series for cheap!

u/SwineHerald · 8 pointsr/Games

Is it really the naming schemes though? The Wii and WiiU Both had equivalent "Pro" controllers. I think for a lot of people when nintendo says "pro controller" it is assumed to be the non-gimmick controller.

u/heretohelplol · 8 pointsr/PS4

Hi, I had this problem as well. My nails somehow eroded the grip. I ordered Grip-iT Analog Stick Covers from amazon. they where little over 4 bucks and comes in small pack of 2 black set and a blue set. Working well for me.


u/morrispated2 · 8 pointsr/PS4

I bought the gold headset and it is dynamite. Can't recommend it enough.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Jet Black

u/20th_LVL_Wizard · 8 pointsr/Games

I've kept my controller budget under $150 via garage sales and Amazon deals.

$15 360 reciever

$20 Dolphin bar

$12 n64 Controllers. These don't have great cable lengths and the analog sticks don't work perfectly, but mapping n64 buttons to a 360 controller was a nightmare. These were worth the hassle and price.

u/pieface42 · 8 pointsr/smashbros

They already are releasing it separately.

The Controller


u/largepanda · 8 pointsr/pcmasterrace

OP used the official Wii U adapter, which is bloody expensive. I'd recommend the Mayflash adapter instead, which can behave either as the official adapter or can rewrite the inputs to a standard controller for use in things that aren't Dolphin.

u/DrDroop · 8 pointsr/wiiu

These controllers are abhorrent. Seriously, they are awful. Do yourself a favor and buy the Hori-made controllers. They have a Mario and Luigi one I think is all:

25 bones w/ Prime if you order from Amazon. I found some available for the same price on eBay as well a few weeks ago. Works for Wii/WiiU.

u/ZeGlasses · 8 pointsr/gaming

If you want to get an actual replacment for a Gamecube Controller(such as for competitive play), I recommend the Hori Battle Pad.

u/tyjo99 · 8 pointsr/SSBM

Intel 530 HD will run melee at any resolution under 1080p. This one will probably work or this ebay filter. Any intel gen 6 laptop processor will work for the most part. You only need a graphics card that has a passmark score of about that can match or beat this if you want to run Project M a much more graphically intensive game on 2 monitors.


  • Buy a laptop that has 2 USB ports on the same side if you want to use rumble
  • Buy a laptop that has a low lag display, (aka most gaming laptops)
  • Buy a laptop that comes from a reasonably reputable source.
  • Dedicated GPU's are nice but not required
  • Use a Mayflash or Wii U adapter, most others will break very fast

    Other places to look:


u/ItsKipz · 8 pointsr/smashbros

PSA: Mayflash makes a clone adapter that works on Wii U, PC, and Switch just as perfectly as the official one and can be found easily on Amazon for under $20.

EDIT SECONDARY PSA: 8BitDo also makes a wireless 1-port adapter for switch and PC that allows you to connect a single controller to your Switch wirelessly, in tabletop, handheld, or docked mode.

u/dygeron92 · 8 pointsr/TwoBestFriendsPlay

I also remember that this Mayflash adapter can be used to play Nintendo Switch games with the GameCube controller. Apparently it's more compatible with that system than the official Wii U GameCube Adapter, but that was from a few months ago so I don't know how compatible it is now. The adapter is also $18.

u/Broseph_McTatertots · 8 pointsr/Games

If you can find the official Gamecube adapter and don't decide to flip it on ebay for 5x the MSRP, there's that. It needs a special driver but that's not a big deal.

A better choice might be the recently re-released Mayflash GC adapter. This is it here. There are other models but this is the newest and best third-party one.

u/FenrirW0lf · 8 pointsr/smashbros

People shouldn't buy that particular adapter anymore. It's old, has input delay, and has bad drivers on top of it. Mayflash makes a better version these days that's compatible with both Smash 4 and native input in Dolphin.

u/earthspirit1147 · 8 pointsr/GoPlus

We have ordered 5 go-tcha's from amazon with no issues at all. Made by Datel, the same ones you can get at gamestop. I have never heard of anyone getting banned for one. If you order on Amazon, just pay attention to the seller's name. Nintendo sells the go-plus, Datel sells the Go-tcha.



u/MyDadCantCount · 8 pointsr/smashbros

What you need to get started playing Melee:

  1. A Nintendo Wii (in case you ever become interested in Project M) available for about $40+ various places on the internet. Try to get the white one as some of the black models does not have slots for Gamecube controllers. Make sure the Wii has the sensor bar, power cables, AV cables, at least 1 wiimote. You also need a Gamecube Memory card so you can save the game. Alternatively if Wii isn't your thing you could purchase a Gamecube bundle like this.

  2. A Wired Official Nintendo Gamecube Controller (negates wireless interference at large tournaments) available from anywhere from about $10+ Used on eBay to about $40 new on Amazon. Let me stress again OFFICIAL Nintendo controller, third parties are generally shoddy and not worth the investment regardless of their price.

  3. A copy of Super Smash Bros Melee, price normally fluctuates from $30-$60 depending on site and demand.

  4. A CRT television. The big ol' chunky ones. These are the only kinds of TV that do not have input delay for Melee. You can find them for free on craigslist or can buy one at a garage sale or thrift store for $5-10 dollars. Make sure it has AV hookups and a remote or a built in button to switch the inputs. Remember to lift with your legs or get a friend to help cause they can be heavy (my main one is 42" and 300lbs).

  5. A Smashboards Account. Everything Smash related can be found there. Character discussions, tourny info, ect...

    Extra suggestions:

  • Find human opponents in your area ASAP. You'll probably lose and lose badly but you learn infinitely more than playing against CPUs. Finding good players who are willing to show you the ropes is key.

  • Watch this and Go Here to learn advanced techniques.

  • Once you get a feel for all the characters choose the one you like best and stick to them as this will help you improve faster. This is the most current Melee tier list, which is basically a power ranking of characters. That said, do not take it too seriously, anyone in S or A tier is generally viable and even those below it are feasible if you put in the time and effort (just look to this subreddit's hero aMSa who consistently puts up amazing results with Yoshi)

  • If you're not having fun you're probably not playing right.

  • I strongly recommend watching The Smash Bros documentary it was created and funded by the community and gives a really in depth look into the history of competitive Melee.

  • If you want to play Project M (the second most popular Smash game currently) you need a copy of SSB Brawl, a 2gb SD Card, and the hackless edition PM files.

    Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions I can try my best to answer them tomorrow.
u/Lier_X_Agerate · 8 pointsr/wiiu

For anyone who wants to pick up a gamecube controller, these have been on sale for a long time now and, honestly, I have been recommending them over the Smash Bros edition since before those even went out of stock. The build quality is a little bit nicer.

u/Shifty_Snowman · 8 pointsr/smashbros

Well you can buy this
and have shitty R and L buttons

or spend $50 more on this
and have not shitty R and L buttons and lose because of the reason you stated. So yes this is an issue in the community already. Albeit to a smaller degree, but the fact of the matter is that there is currently different performance controllers for different price ranges.

u/Applegravy · 8 pointsr/gaming

that sounds amazing. if only I had such a section at one of my local stores. I'm still missing a few Gamecube games I want very much. part of why I haven't simply found and bought those is because I'd rather not spend more than $30 on a used copy of a 10 year old game. is there anything good in those cabinets?

another note for you, you need a pretty great computer to run Dolphin properly. if I had a dedicated GPU I could do that no problem, but an Intel 2450M with integrated graphics runs Dolphin very slowly. Dolphin is still very bloated, and there's a lot they can probably flatten out as time goes on, but right now, I don't have the power for it. considering that this is a 2 year old computer trying to run something designed for 13 year old hardware, it isn't just my lack of a phenomenal GPU, since Intel Integrated 3000 is comparable to a top of the line Geforce card from about 5 years ago, but as it is right now, you need a beastly computer to run a Gamecube emulator. it isn't that simple for everybody.

the nostalgia factor isn't a problem for me, because with an adapter and one of my many Gamecube controllers, I can map out my stuff the right way and play with the real controller, much like I already do with the N64. with the original controller, the nostalgia is basically the same, without as much hassle in as many ways, and with the ability to play rom hacks. for me, that's a win. that said, I like having the actual hardware as well.

u/Sirgoku1 · 8 pointsr/smashbros

There actually is an adapter to get Gamecube to Wii U. You can purchase it here

u/kitsovereign · 8 pointsr/Games

There are a few options right now - The Mayflash adapter lets you connect a GCN controller to a Wii remote and have it spoof a Classic Controller. Additionally, the PDP Wired Fight Pad and HORI Battle Pad are Classic Controllers, but modeled after the classic Gamecube controller shape.

There's always the chance that Nintendo will make the GCN adapter work for things other than SSB for Wii U, but I'm not sure I'd hold my breath. Honestly if they just made it work in Wii mode it'd be amazing.

u/FreshPaprikazzz · 8 pointsr/metalgearsolid

I've said to this every newbie and I will say it to you as well: just play the games. Reading wikis or other peoples' plot summaries just doesn't work with Metal Gear games -- it really doesn't. You just have to experience it by yourself.

If you want the easy but not as effective way to learn what's going on - sure - you can watch the Digital Graphic Novels or cutscenes from YouTube, but I'd personally just lock you in a bunker with the Legacy Collection and let you out once you've finished the whole series.

u/bumbacloth · 8 pointsr/gaming

This is how I do it:
I have

  • minecraft forge and this mod

  • xbox dongle with two wireless xbox 360 you can use one controller and keyboard + mice if you want. the dongle can take 4 controllers, so it is nice to use with Project 64 and mario party and all the other games that is 4 player on steam etc.

  • we have two accounts. You do not have to, but if you want to play on an online server then you have to. If you have your own server or just open to lan then you won't need to.

    and then just open two minecraft windows and open to lan or log into your own server.

    Though, looks like OP could just give the kid the fullscreen and and use one of his monitors to play with him.

    e: ALso, /u/thataustguy is right, but our have a tablet so she can watch mc on youtube
u/seehanth001 · 7 pointsr/gaming

No, but it's possible to connect a Gamecube controller a Wii Remote as if it was a Wii Classic Controller.

u/supergenius99 · 7 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I don't think so, in July the Metal Gear Solid Legacy collection is going to be released that includes MGS 1,2,3,4, Peace Walker, VR missions, and the original Metal Gear 1 and 2 for $50. You'll get a lot more bang for your buck and can experience the entire story.

u/liquidhot · 7 pointsr/PS3

From the Amazon page: The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition

u/xeLr · 7 pointsr/PS3
u/Nikazio · 7 pointsr/metalgearsolid

I don't know if i understood correctly but if you don't know wich games are for each console

On the PS1 you can only play MSG1

On the PS2 you can play MGS2 and 3, and if you have the "Subsistence" version of 3 it also includes the original Metal Gear 1 and 2.

Or you can sell everything and get a PS3 with the Legacy collection wich includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition. It also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and VR Missions voucher codes.

u/RDDanna · 7 pointsr/SSBM

if you want to play on your computer, I'll recommend the most recent dolphin netplay build, that and complete instructions can be found here.

Of course, you will need a ROM of melee which you should definitely obtain legally and not through a download of it somewhere on the internet.

You will need a controller. I recommend looking at your nearest thrift store, or joining the facebook group for your local melee scene and asking if anyone would be willing to sell one to you. Or you can buy a new smash 4 controller.. Also you'll need an adapter to play on your computer, the mayflash 4 port is the best and cheapest option, but if you already have a wii u with gamecube adapter you can make that work too. Either way follow this guide to set it up. (make sure it's on wii u mode if you end up with the mayflash adapter)

All this being said, this is not the best way to play melee. The best way will always be to play on a wii or gamecube with a CRT TV (long story short, they have way less lag than HD TVs). If you really end up getting into melee you'll end up going this route eventually anyways, so for that I'd recomend agin your local scene for a gamecube/wii and a copy of melee, though copys of melee can be a bit expensive. For a CRT, check craigslist in your area, or just like streetcorners, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one. Worst case, your local thrift store will probably only overcharge you a little for a decent CRT.

If you don't want to deal with buying a copy of melee. Then you can mod your wii to play a rom of melee. I recommend the 20xx hack pack that is made for melee training. It has a bunch of stuff you can learn to use, but you can also just play regular games on it, so it's good for everything outside of serious tournament use. Here's the official step by step guide for getting 20xx onto your wii.

Outside of that I think your best option is to see if there's any smash fests or tournaments going on around you and just go, hang out with people and play as much as you can.

Also, just some friendly advice, as great of a resource this reddit, or smashboards, or people in general can be, not everything everyone says is accurate, so do your research.

Have fun, and welcome!

PS, no hate for CS:GO from me. Plus I don't think you'll find too much hate for it here in general since mango plays it.

EDIT: I forgt my biggest piece of advice for new players. Spacing is as important, if not more important than tech skill. Make sure you're movement has a purpose. Good luck Dude/Dudette

u/JBridge · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Or you could use one of these third-party adapters.

u/Saibot117 · 7 pointsr/SSBPM
This one works as well, but I haven't use it and its a little less money
people say its good. look for a review or read the comments for it and decide :)

u/Sheecacaa3 · 7 pointsr/SSBPM

There's a bunch of guides and stuff as soon as you first enter the site.

>I want to do anther's ladder but I don't know exactly what it is

It's a match-making website where you can find matches, and chat with people in real time. The matches can be anything from Bo3 to Bo5 'ranked' ladder matches, to endless friendlies, to doubles matches. Basically, anything you could do at your local tourney, you can do on Anther's. (except money matchs afaik)

>Can I access it on my wii?

I mean.. maybe? You'd want to use your computer/mobile device if possible.

>Do I have to use an emulator on my laptop?

For Project M, most likely. You'd be hard pressed to find other people that still use the Wiimfi servers and play on their Wiis. The official way to play PM on Anther's is Dolphin Emulator, and there are plenty of guides to set it up, as well as optimize it if you have a slower computer.

>Can my laptop even run project m smoothly?

Well I play it on my laptop, and it runs fine (I even record while playing most of the time). Most modern computers can run it pretty well. It really depends on your specs though. You could get a lot of advice about that, but nothing beats just trying it out on your own and seeing if it works or not.

>If it is on my pc, than how am I supposed to use a gamecube controller?

There are multiple ways to get a Gamecube controller working on a computer, but the easiest/best ways are the official WiiU adapter or the Mayflash 4 Port adapter. They're both the best you can get in terms of lag reduction, but the mayflash is cheaper.

>Either way, how much lag is usually on it? I don't want to throw my timing off.

That really depends on your connection, your opponent's connection, and your own computer. It's usually anywhere between 10ms and 100ms of lag. I usually don't even play with people if the ping is over 60ms. (EC privilege lol) Many top players use netplay for a variety of reasons. Yes, the timing can throw you off if you're jumping from netplay to a tournament set, but if you take the time to adjust properly, then it really shouldn't be a problem. The MU experience and massive variety of playstyles you'll learn is something that Smashers have only dreamed of until recently.

I highly recommend netplay if you can get it working. Almost everyone has troubles setting it up at first, including myself, so don't get upset if it takes a couple days to get it working. I've probably clocked in over 1000-2000 hours on Netplay. It's great!

Hope this helps. Good luck!

u/Smilotron · 7 pointsr/SSBM

What sort of information did you need? What you heard is correct. Using any digital TV will require signal conversion from the Gamecube's analog output to a digital input for the TV, which takes a non-trivial amount of time to process. When going from a CRT to a digital TV, there is a noticeable delay between when you press a button and when you can see the move on the screen. It is best to try and find a CRT to practice on. They can be easily found on Craigslist, and people in your region's Melee Facebook group will probably post about available CRTs frequently.

If you don't have a CRT to practice on, then it might be best to get Faster Melee (An optimization of the Dolphin emulator to better emulate Melee) and an adapter and practice on your computer. This should have less lag than plugging your console in to a digital TV.

u/bwrt · 7 pointsr/pokemongodev

> This is not true

So you trust Amazon and Gamestop over Nintendo? It clearly states on both the UK and German Nintendo shop that Go Plus is currently only compatible with "iPhone 5/5c/5s/SE/6/6s/6 Plus/6s Plus with iOS 8 - 9" and that "As of July 2016, the Pokémon GO Plus compatibility with phones using the Android operating system is under development."

No mention of Android anywhere on Amazon, though it seems Gamestop indeed claims compatibility with both iOS and Android. I doubt they know more about the development progress than Nintendo though, and are just being "optimistic" it will be ready in time so they can sell to more people.

u/ArgenAstra · 7 pointsr/Kappa

I'm not talking about a LAN adapter you can buy that works. I'm talking about the official one on Amazon that i'm sure plenty of people will buy cause they don't know better. Also it's more like $30 bucks than 20 lmao

u/CoryBoehm · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Some recommended Switch accessories:

  • A tempered glass screen protector such as ORLZY, Spigen or AMFilm. All are excellent only reason AMFilm gets more recommendations as it was first to market.

  • A protective case like Hori Tough Pouch

  • Hori LAN Adapter if you play online lots as the Switch has very weak WiFi service. Also other lan adapters may work but only the Hori one is officially supported.

  • Hori Play Stand if you frequently play in table top mode or need to charge while in table top mode.

  • Pro Controller

  • The [Google Pixel USB C-C charger] ( as it is easy to find locally, even on sale, and more compact than the Nintendo one but it won't power the dock.

  • Nintendo A-C cable (comes with the Pro Controller)

  • Your choice of headphones

  • A larger bag such as Butterfox Carry All case to hold your EDC (every day carry).

  • PowerA Cartridge Cases if you need extra game storage on the go (comes in several designs).

  • RAVPower 26800 PD a battery pack with both Type C in and out such as this one. Type C is means quicker charging and Type C out to safely power the Switch while using it.

  • PowerA Hybrid Cover might also be of interest to some people. I have not used it though as it is not my style. There are a few different colour/designs.
u/EgoGrinder · 7 pointsr/PS4

Like anything there is no agreed upon "best".

There are GelTabz....


Butterfox (I had these for a while)

Off brand silicone...


You'd be better off watching YouTube reviews of these various products.

None of which might fit great now that the rubber on your controller is actually falling apart. Might require some hot glue or something else if you want them to stay in place.

A lot of people eventually switch to xbox style sticks, not just because the material doesn't fall apart but because it's actually a much better design. These compared to the DS4 sticks is night and day in terms of control and your thumb not sliding all over the place.

Not that hard to install. Hardest thing about taking the controller apart is getting the shell separated for the first time and the fact that the triggers and springs might fall out, so just work on a clean table where you'll be able to find the little springs. Watch videos on how to take it apart.

u/ZachMettenberger · 7 pointsr/PS4
u/cowbell77 · 7 pointsr/wiiu

I think for now, people shouldn't be worried. Amazon shipping is pretty solid. If you're worried about your shipments not getting sent out yet, it might be because you're in an area closer to a fulfillment center, where they can afford to hold off on your shipment, and instead focus on getting out the packages that are farther away. I wouldn't even worry if by midnight tonight they're not shipped yet. (An example: I recently ordered something for next day shipment. I live in the Los Angeles area and we have a fulfillment center in a city over. The package didn't actually ship out until 1:30PM and made it to me by the 9PM deadline (only 8 hours!))

Also, it also seems like all Vlad did was look up the Adapter on the actual website (not like any employee backend or something-- he says, "I looked on the site..."), where it is indeed out of stock. BUT It's probably listed as out of stock because they've all been pre-ordered (I mean, it's not like they were giving them out before release day, so how could they otherwise run out? The other possibility is that they never had them at all... which is pretty unlikely). I'd say if you got your preorder in before they went out of stock, you're probably fine.

I just wanted to say this before people cancel their orders when it might not be necessary to. I'm ready to eat crow if wrong, but yeah. Relax.

u/deleted_away · 7 pointsr/smashbros
  1. That's out of date. Look into Faster melee. Here's a good guide for that.

  2. That one would work, but the preferred option is the wii u adapter.

  3. Those are not the best controllers. Smash 4 controllers in my experience have significant problems with dash back. Their triggers tend to stick and are clunky when you're using them. If you were to buy that controller I'd highly recommend switching the triggers out for older ones (typically have metal bars in the triggers). Shield dropping is ok and pivots works well enough. I'd look for an older controller model tbh. Controllers vary widely and many are simply bad

u/YNMatts · 7 pointsr/smashbros

HORI is also making a Classic Controller (that actually is styled as the GCC as opposed to this Gamstop one) that uses a turbo button. Only thing is that HORI is trustworthy.

u/jordonph · 7 pointsr/wiiu

You are thinking of the Hori Battle Pad.

u/ObsoletePixel · 7 pointsr/SSBPM

Not true, that's the PDP pad. Hori made this one

u/Cool_John · 7 pointsr/smashbros

You can get new white controllers on Amazon. They cost about USD $30 but the price fluctuates based on supply and demand.


u/Igglyboo · 7 pointsr/smashbros

Spend 5 more dollars and buy this one

It's got a way better build quality, the new ones have a weird plasticky feel to them and the triggers suck.

u/grumbel · 7 pointsr/oculus

A PS Move has neither sticks nor Dpad. The Nav Controller has a stick and a Dpad, but it lacks positional tracking, so it's pretty useless for VR.

u/jimbo831 · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I've been using this one without any issues for over a year when I take my Switch other places. I do think it's absurd Nintendo doesn't make a first party version of this.

Wireless Adapter/ Dongle

Mayflash adapter (Converts wireless Dongle to Nintendo Switch)

Xbox 360 Controller.

If you already have a controller and it’s a bit worn out, rebuild kits can be purchased online or you can buy another 360 controller.

It’s overall same price as a Pro Controller for this setup but I prefer the bigger thumb sticks and more fluid buttons of the Xbox controller. Vibration features also work so it’s incredible imo.

u/BR3VITY · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

There are several out there now and they all seem to work fine. Amazon has many listed. I own this one and it works as advertised. The Nyko one comes with an HDMI and Power Cable so its a good deal. Put the link to the Nyko one below the one I have.

u/st1tchy · 6 pointsr/darksouls

If you are playing docked, here is your solution.

u/FeetOfKatyPerry · 6 pointsr/PS3

/u/abs_boxing_tv .

i say ditch the dualshock 3 all-together.

it's hard to find official ones in decent condition now a days.

what i do is use a dualshock 4 (ps4 controller), with these little mods:

  1. mayflash magic ns adapter.

    this lets you use ps4/xb1/xb30/nintendo-switch-pro controllers on the ps3 with full functionality. (such as rumbles/vibration and accessing the PS menu button).

    you can still use the ps4 controller on ps3 without this adapter, but the 2 mentioned features will be MIA, along with random disconnects.

  2. replace the default thumbsticks with ps3-style Domed sticks. here's where i get mine:

    they ship to UK, but it might not be worth paying extra shipping just for a simple piece of product. you can probably find domed thumbsticks for cheaper on ebay. Just make sure they are DOMED (which is what ps3 controller sticks are), and compatible with dualshock 4.

    no matter what controller or mods you use, it will take some time to get used to, especially with a thumbstick-heavy game such as Fight Night Champion.

    but in the end, i ended up liking this setup better for FNC than the original ps3 controller.

    thanks to /u/kryp2nitev8 for this advice.
u/BigFuzzyArchon · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use one of these


it lets you use ps4, xbox or wii u pro controller

u/usrevenge · 6 pointsr/PS4

honestly, I recommend these

you get 4 in a pack (so enough for 2 controllers or just for yours and you have a spare set)

it took a while to get on right, basically they have to be perfect or they rub the sides while using the sticks and you get resistance but now that I got them on right it's very nice, and seems to be protecting the thumb sticks.

best part is the price, after shipping mine were $9, keeping in mind it comes with a spare set of covers.

I know this isn't exactly what you want, but IMO it's worth getting them even if the controllers seem to be fixed.

u/Slanderpanic · 6 pointsr/Steam

Protip: You can get one for $25 from Amazon. The only downside to the 360 controller, in my experience, is that the D-pad sucks. Newer models have a better D-pad, but they'll also run you about sixty Earthican buckazoids.

I also have one of these. Games don't tend to discover and auto-configure to it as well as they do with the 360 controller, but it's good, solid hardware. The buttons and analog sticks are precise and it's got a good hand-feel. Most importantly, the left analog stick and D-pad are on what's called a "Cyborg" module. That means you can pop it out and turn it around based on your preference. For instance, if you prefer a Playstation-style layout, you can have it. Hell, for 12 buckazoids and free shipping, it's worth trying.

u/jmt627 · 6 pointsr/n64

Speaking from experience just head to your local video game store (one thats sells used stuff) then buy the best three used nintendo brand controllers they have. Just check to make sure all the buttons are good the sticks don't matter at this point.

Now hit up amazon and look for these

These joysticks are not like the ones that come with the nintendo controllers they don't have the ball joint at the bottom that wears out. Look at these other sticks for comparison.

You can see how they are different. The joysticks are easy to swap out and you will not wear them out unlike the traditional joysticks. You will always have "tight sticks"

Hope this helps you out man.

u/AvoidingIowa · 6 pointsr/Games
u/BombTicker · 6 pointsr/smashbros

you can get an adapter online I believe mayflash makes one, also you can get the new white controller for like 36$ on amazon. Let me find you the links one sec... that is the controller and is the adapter. Also why the fuck does the url for that last link say B00BS lol its like someone is fucking with us! hahaha. But a tilt is just when you SLIGHTLY move your control stick up, down or forward and press A and you will do a tilt attack that is weak and is great for comboing/juggling for most characters. You can do it with your wiimote + nunchuck itll just be bad. Also play Project M as it has melee physics since if you have a wii U u probs wont be playing melee anytime soon so you can get good without having the game.

u/davidvkimball · 6 pointsr/smashbros

There is sort of a solution. Check out my video here.

Basically, there's an adapter (link to amazon here) that connects from your Wii Remote to your GameCube controller, and it essentially treats your GameCube controller like a Classic Controller.

More details are in the video. :)

u/billpika · 6 pointsr/smashbros

It's a convertor that recognizes the GC controller as a classic controller.

u/Theinternationalist · 6 pointsr/GameDeals

That said, 4 is no great shakes (I found it...aggravating after playing 2 and 3; I've never played 1 but I know the plot) and, if the Legacy Collection has VOUCHERS for MGS1 and Virtual Missions. If you don't care much for Metal Gear, get the HD collection; if you want the full experience, pick up the Legacy one.

Here's the link to the Legacy Collection for more info on the Criterion of Metal Gear games:

u/CriticCorner · 6 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection


-Metal Gear (1995)
-Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (1999)
-Metal Gear Solid (2005)
-Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Substance Edition / HD) (2007 - 2009)
-Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Subsistence Edition / HD) (1964)
-Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3 Exclusive) (2014)
-Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (1974)

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes / The Phantom Pain are sold separately but aren't PS3 exclusive.

The games here range from 1987 to 2010, sorted by release order. Guns of the Patriots is the finale to the franchise even though Revengeance takes place in 2018 but that title isn't canon.

It took me roughly ~2 weeks to get through all of them. On average, a Metal Gear Solid game takes ~8-12 hours to beat on your first ever run. The first 2 are a bit shorter.


The franchise is a must play. These games started, revolutionized, and essentially built the stealth franchise, with Ground Zeroes being the closest thing we have to a stealth simulator. Also Kojima wrote one of the greatest stories in gaming history.

u/woofGrrrr · 6 pointsr/forza

I really liked that wheel and was bummed when it became incompatible with my XBOX. You can use that wheel with Forza 7 you just need to get an adapter. I use this;


It works fine, it's not perfect, but I like it better than using the controller. I guess I got used to it with my XBOX 360. Requires some futzing around and plugging the adapter into a PC and installing some dowloaded files to enable the functions on the wheel. I also have one of these;

I use that when I play on my computer, it also works on the XBOX. I am not a fan of the clutter in my living room, also the pedals don't work all that well with the furniture I have in my living room.

u/DavidL1112 · 6 pointsr/SSBM

nah you want to buy one of the adapters Nintendo made when Smash Wii U or Smash Ultimate came out, or one of the Mayflash offbrand ones. Then you can practice with your real controller which will lag less in the emulator.

Here's a link:

u/sliverbaer · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

yeah, not really sure this is all that great because of that. Having the wired usb thingamambob might be the better route.

u/StaffandHalf · 6 pointsr/smashbros

If you are looking for a 3rd party alternative might I recommend the Mayflash adapter? I have been using it for going on 4 years now, and it works great on the Switch/Wii U/PC.

Not sure if amazon link are ok but here ya go

u/Vikings230 · 6 pointsr/SSBM

This is the USB adapter most people recommend. Also if you want to share an eBay listing for a controller here I'd be happy to check it out and let you know if it's a good deal or not!

u/Apollo748 · 6 pointsr/Games

If you're using an emulated wiimote, you need nothing.

If you are using a real, physical wiimote, you will need a sensor bar and a bluetooth dongle.

Most of us recommend the Mayflash Dolphinbar as it combines both into one device.

Update that to the latest firmware to alleviate a burn out problem.

We also support official GC controller adapters (From nintendo) and can emulate those for the most accurate GC controller input (surprisingly enough, we get better analog stick input).

This is also effectively the same as the official GC adapter.

We also support pretty much any GC -> USB adapter as long as it gives some sort of controller interface, but for obvious reasons we try to recommend one or two.

u/nerplicks · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I think he's talking about a wired connection with the $30 ethernet to usb things. The switch would need to be docked to connect an ethernet to it, so you'd need a monitor for each person as far as i can tell. This is such a niche thing though, just order that go pro tape and it'll pretty much be fused on. The switches can be connected wirelessly without docks though, so this wouldn't really be useful unless you were in a tournament.

I'd imagine it'll be the same as the ones they're currently selling on Amazon(here). I got one of these and it does feel a little bit different, at least in the joystick(Feels a bit more rigid and solid) but overall it still feels great. It also has a longer cable. Would recommend. I'm actually glad we're getting the black controllers since I already have a white one.

u/Kinths · 6 pointsr/smashbros

Haven't you been able to import new official GC controllers via amazon for a while, or am I missing something?

Did they ever stop manufacturing them?

If there is a difference and people are looking for originals then head to ebay. They are still fairly cheap but I suspect the price will skyrocket when Smash Wii U hits.

u/somephotographs · 6 pointsr/wii

Wii is great! Like you said, it's already established with a big library of Wii games. In addition to that, you've got the library of GameCube games at your disposal as well. Grab a couple of GCN controllers and go apeshit have fun :)

This is a great controller

u/midamidamida · 6 pointsr/smashbros

always use first party controllers! they can endure the most wear & tear damage, especially from a game like melee (also less input lag, like you mentioned with the third party controller)

these controllers are fan-favorites, and you can still buy them new! plus, the discount that's going on right now would be good to take advantage of if i were you

Playstation can have a wireless headset with Dolby 7.1 surround for $75:

The cheapest one I found on XB1 is $120 and has stereo sound. WTF?

u/bravebreaker · 6 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

Get these, seriously:

Only $100 at the moment, 4.5 stars out of 5 stars from 1,347 customers at the time of this post.

It is wireless, has really good sound quality, 7.1 surround sound, good bass response. Not to mention there is the playstation headset app you can download after you purchase these, the app lets you download a sound preset into your headphones specifically tuned for Destiny. And you can do this for the most popular games on PS4.

I have these and absolutely love them, sound quality is great and my GF never complains as I have all the audio (chat and game audio) coming into the headphones instead of the external speakers.

This isn't really an issue, but more a tip if you get them, every now and then you might some sound issues or your buddies you're playing might say hey your mic keeps cutting out etc. Turn off the headset and unplug the little wireless usb receiver for the headset, plug it back in and turn the headphones back on and you're good to go.

u/OpticalNecessity · 6 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

For VoG/Crota, not really. Especially if you grab a sherpa run, where someone explains all the mechanics for you.

Getting into KF, though, a mic is pretty necessary as a lot of communication is needed from all members.

I own the Playstation Headset which are falling apart but I refuse to get rid of. Save up and buy a pair. I'm sure the newer "gold" model are good as well, I just have no personal experience with them.

u/smurfslayer0 · 6 pointsr/patientgamers

The Mayfair sensor bar is the absolute easiest way to use Dolphin. It works as both a lightbar and as a bluetooth connection for your Wii remotes. It makes it very easy and straightforward to set up.

As far as Gamecube games on the Wii, they play exactly the same regardless of which console you use. I really don't notice any difference.

u/Salinisations · 5 pointsr/teaching

Everyone else so far have been suggesting alternative ways to go about this, but if you want to go with your original set up you need one more piece of a equipment.

You'll need a USB Wii bar which you can from Amazon. I like dolphins one which you can find here:

You'll need some sort of PowerPoint macro to show each winner and then you'll probably need to use Autohotkey to convert the input from your remotes into a signal for your macro.

If this sounds too much that's fine. If you'd like to know more let me know and I'll see if I can help.

u/Adantingtask · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I bought the dolphin bar from mayflash. Was annoyed that I had to buy a third party adapter to get my wii mote working, but it is soooooo convenient!

EDIT: some more information

The Dolphin Bar by Mayflash. I bought it from Amazon but this link takes you to Mayflash's page.

Lastly, this is a hardware review on the Dolphin Emulator website that talks about it. I haven't had any issues with the bar. I love it! I can switch the mode with a press of a button and use it as a pointer to move the mouse cursor too, which is convenient if I want to switch to Netflix on the HTPC in the living room after dying one too many times in Skyward Sword.

I noticed that my game still hadn't shipped this morning, and was incorrectly linking tracking information to another shipment which had already been delivered. This was my second contact with Amazon support since I hadn't received notice that it was shipped or shipping soon. The first guy just told me it would ship soon. This guy looked into and told me that the gamecube adapters were out of stock and holding up the entire order.

Just for clarification, this was not the game+controller+adapter bundle, but the stand alone adapters.

u/baste5 · 5 pointsr/wiiu

Yes. Amazon has the adapter listed for 20$, however the date is still TBA.

u/SlapingTheFist · 5 pointsr/Gamecube

u/midsummernightstoker · 5 pointsr/Games

There is an adapter that lets you use gamecube controllers with the Wii U. Still no BC for gamecube games though.

u/iRanch · 5 pointsr/smashbros

If the game allows for Wii Classic Controllers, you can use the GC to Classic adapter, otherwise everyone will use the new Pro Controller.

Some people have played Melee with the Wii U pro controller through homebrew and said it felt fine, so i'm not so worried.

u/EnduranceProtocol · 5 pointsr/nintendo

Unfortunately no. Wii games are played in the WiiU's Wii mode, which is basically Wii hardware. The Gamepad simply shuts.

You can use the Wii Classic Controller (Pro). There are 3rd party Wii to Gamecube controller adapters such as this one, if you're interested in that, although I can't vouch for any brand or if they're even reliable at all, as I've never experienced any.

u/John_Lawn · 5 pointsr/gaming

Well, there are these things. Assuming that SSB4 supports the classic controller from the wii (which I'm 90% sure they will), your problem is solved.

u/HeroOfLegend · 5 pointsr/smashbros

It works perfectly on the wii u. I ended up switching to the classic controller pro due to the lack of GC ports on the wii u. However you can get an adapter to use your GC remotes for it.

u/azrael6947 · 5 pointsr/gaming

Okay, I'll keep this brief.

You started out good. MGS 3 is the earliest game in the series story wise. On console Ground Zeroes is it's sequel, there is a few handheld titles in between MGS 3 and Ground Zeroes.

In short the story is and SPOILERS-SOMEWHAT in short, about two key groups who endevour to fulfil The Boss' final wish, to have a untied world. The Patriots seek to create this world through control, their enemies seek to create it through freedom.

The Patriots are an example of a shadow government, as they run the USA and control pretty much everything, add WMDs, nanomachines, AI and supersolders as plot points to the entire story, and it makes for one very enjoyable ride.

In their attempts to create the perfect world they embark on a complex cloning program to create the perfect soldier to fullfiil this goal. This is where Solid Snake comes from. Very few characters work directly for The Patriots, many are unknowing agents and the rest are usually unwilling, and are held hostage by some means.

The Metal Gear are a series of bipedial tanks, caipable of launching WMDs from any terrain or fullfilling some over goal such as recon or targeted strikes. In most games the Metal Gear serves as the final boss or close to being the final boss.

In buying Ground Zeroes now you wont miss a hell of a lot, Ocelot appears in it along with Snake. Most of the other characters are from the two handheld games in between MGS3 and MGS5:GZ, those two games are Peace Walker and Portable Ops. You can get every MGS game to date (aside from Portable Ops) in the Legacy Collection:

There will be some more affordable options coming. Here is one by XBERSTAR on Aliexpress which is the same as the CF002 (Type-C in, HDMI, one USB 3.0). FastSnail will also carry this adapter. I found another one on Alibaba that has the same I/O as the CF003 (two Type-C, HDMI, three USB 3.0) minus the removable cable. Unfortunately, ZYNUN on Amazon has a preorder price that is double the unit cost at $69.99.

u/Shadax · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The switch doesn't have a direct HDMI out, so an HDMI cable alone won't do it. You need a switch to HDMI out adapter.

u/Bronzdragon · 5 pointsr/CrappyDesign

It's not, it's a PS2 controller. I can see why you'd think it's a Wii Classic Pro controller, but the shoulder buttons on the Classic pro are rounded, whereas the PS2's are much squarer, like these are.

You can also see the telltale slopes along the vertical axis that the PS2 controller has on it's back side, the Classic pro has more of a wave/dip along the horizontal axis.

u/gameguy682 · 5 pointsr/wiiu

Do you mean you bought the Wii U Pro Controller? Those aren't compatible with Wii Mode. The Classic Controller, and the Classic Controller Pro are what the games are referring to.

u/DITC01 · 5 pointsr/PS4

get yourself a pair of Grip-Its, they're awesome and super comfortable.

u/elshizzo · 5 pointsr/PS3

It's pretty well known that [even though I love the controller overall] the ps3 doesn't have the best analog sticks.

Some people put covers on the analog's like these

It's one thing the ps4 really did right imo is fix the analogs. Now that I think about it, you could probably also get a ps4 controller and use it as a ps3 controller to fix your problem.

u/wisaaka · 5 pointsr/PS4

Something like Grip-Its work fantastically. They are very cheap, very easy to put on, and add a good deal of grip to your existing sticks. It's one thing if you want to tinker with the controller, but other than that, it's far simpler to put on covers.

Edit: that US$4.35 price is for two pairs.

u/friendofrobots · 5 pointsr/Games

I highly recommend picking up a wired xbox 360 controller:

I've saved a significant amount of money by buying games like AC2, Arkham Asylum, GTA IV, and Just Cause 2 on Steam sales instead of waiting for the console version to go on sale. It has definitely paid for itself in that respect.

If you want to invest in a better controller then the Xbox 360 wired controller is the way to go. Most Games for Windows titles have built in support and it's also reasonably durable and comfortable.

It's just plug n' play with windows. You gotta use a controller for this game.

FIFA 11 is not the same game on PC as it is on the consoles. It is the generation previous engine.

u/SyncOne · 5 pointsr/GameDeals

Just curious, why not buy the xbox 360 wired controller for $30 and save yourself a few bucks not having to buy the wireless receiver/charging kit? In my experience, I'm never more than 9 feet (length of the cord) away from the computer when gaming.

u/cyan386 · 5 pointsr/nintendo
u/Smellyhobo101 · 5 pointsr/Games

There are no xbox 360 adapters for Wii, but there are Gamecube to USB adapters for PC. The best one IMO is the raphnet adapter. A bit more popular is the mayflash adapter, but I've heard those are not as accurate as raphnet. Mayflash also uses drivers which some people have issues with. If you need a controller the official white controllers are on sale at the moment.

u/moleman_dgaf · 5 pointsr/smashbros

Get an official controller ($30) and a Mayflash adapter ($13).

You'll have a much better quality controller that lasts longer, and you can use it on both PC and console.

It was $50 on Amazon just a few months ago, it's been dropping slowly, hopefully it will go down to $30

u/wicked_smidget · 5 pointsr/AmazonTopRated

If you want to use your game cartridges, then you need a console. There is no simple do it yourself way to play them without a snes or n64 console.

However, On the computer you can emulate games by using an emulator such as project64 and download roms (virtual rips of the cartridges) from a website such as emuparadise and emulate them on your computer. You can use a keyboard to play these games but the best way is to buy a n64 controller and get a n64 to usb adapter

u/chrisgond · 5 pointsr/emulation

Mayflash makes quality gear..

I highly recommend these guys as they maintain driver support.

u/Hybrid_Divide · 5 pointsr/retrogaming

If you have good N64 controllers, consider a USB Adapter.

If you want something basic, go with this Mayflash N64 USB Adapter:

I haven't tried the Mayflash adapter yet, but I gave one to a friend, and she seems happy with it.

If you want something really good, try this one. It even has Controller Pak and Rumble Pak Support!:

Raphnet makes a ton of really good adapters for lots of different consoles.

Happy Gaming!

u/sidsixseven · 5 pointsr/OverwatchUniversity

I don't know if this is of interest to you, but I play on PC with Mouse + PS3 Move Navigation controller. There are a couple of ways to get the controller to work but the easiest is to simply buy the Mayflash PS3 to USB adapter.

The Move controller is one handed, so you hold it in your off hand that would normally be placed on the WASD keys. For me, it's mainly a comfort thing.

u/graesen · 5 pointsr/PSVR

The PS3 had a PS Move Navigation controller. I have one. I kept my Move controllers when I hears they were compatible with the PS4. I didn't know how I'd use them, but thought there was a reason. Then 1 day, PSVR was announced and released. The move controllers were compatible, but I've yet to see an example or compatibility for the Navigation controller with the PSVR... Just saying...

u/dimmidice · 5 pointsr/nintendo

There are classic controllers for the wii though.

Price of this one is absurd but that may be because of how old the wii is.

u/elouie82 · 5 pointsr/wiiu

Hey bud,

I, personally, find Shulk to be a tough character to learn. I think you'd benefit from trying out different characters; after all, it's always the same button combinations -- that's the beauty of smash.

Shulk is a slower character; I'd recommend learning with a medium speed character for all around damage and maneuverability. This game is about positioning and predicting the enemy; having a bulky character means you're constantly struggling with your own mobility rather than having time to think about positioning. Once you get a better understanding of the game, you would switch back to Shulk and have a deeper appreciation for his attack power.

Some good examples of medium-speed include Lucina, Mario, Zelda, Falco. They're really well rounded characters. My personal favorites in the game are Fox, Rosalina&Luma, Toon Link, Peach, Charizard, and Lucina; it goes to show that all weight-classes are viable and fun in their own regard. Since you already know the Counter ability, Lucina/Marth would be a decent place to start.

While some say it takes the joy out of it, the best way to get better is playing 1v1, no items, and a basic stage like Final Destination or Battlefield. It cuts out all the random things that happen.

Playing against a single computer and ramping up the difficulty is a good way to learn. You can mirror match, to see how a level 9 computer does certain moves/combos. Maybe you'll see them do something you don't already know, and you can try to mimic it, like "teching." From here, you can figure out which moves have a slower recovery (i.e. every time you use this one ability, you get hit... better not use that ability unless you know you can hit him with it). In time, playing against the same person/computer will improve your game.

As for controls, I know many friends that learned the Smash during Brawl, and play the game just fine using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck; in the end it's about personal preference and how you learned the game. Ideally, a GameCube controller has the perfect layout. To cut your expenses, you should be able to get ( for around $25 if you scope it out, which plugs into a Wii remote and is wired as a Classic Controller. If you don't, the GamePad layout is fine.

Finally, if 1v1, no-items, final destination just isn't fun for you, forget about it! Play to have fun, not to memorize combos. I spent 2-3 hours today with my brother learning Captain Falcon, laughing at trying to hit one-another with his side-air knee attack. Anytime I learned anything new about the character, he'd mimic it and vice versa until we just got better with the character as a whole.

u/JayZesus · 5 pointsr/smashbros

For a controller I'd check at a game exchange near you. One that sells games from previous generations, the one near me has OG gamecube controllers for $25.

For the adapter I'd recommend the mayflash adapter, it's only $15 and works on Wii U too if you're gonna be using it for Smash 4.

u/ericericerice · 5 pointsr/megalinks

you will need to download the Dolphin Emulator. it is compatible with most controllers, such as xbox, keyboard, etc. if you would like to use a gamecube controller, you would need to buy an adapter such as this one.

u/oniony · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This stuff is pretty obvious. Look at your friends, people you know. How many people use wired ethernet nowadays? It's a vanishingly small number I'm sure.

So why put a port that is niche onto a device and make it more expensive for everyone? When it comes to maximising profits on hardware then every penny counts. Putting an ethernet port on adds to the Bill of Materials (BoM: the amount it costs to manufacture the device), it increases the number of faulty devices coming back for repairs under warranty and increases the amount of testing required. So you're adding costs and risks to your device when only, what, 5% of your customers will ever use it.

That barely used ethernet port could be the different between a $299 and $310 device, and that leading digit could have a huge psychological effect on customers' perception.

So what's the alternative? Well, manufacture a separate dongle. Because it's a niche product you can jack up the price to cover its design, manufacture and testing costs and warranty returns. Because it's separate to the main device it doesn't matter so much if there are issues with it. In fact, you could tender it out to a third-party to manufacture and not have to stress about it much at all. It's off your critical path, it's out of your books. Your risky, expensive port has been transformed into pure profit.

u/stretch_muffler · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I highly recommend not doing the LED monitor part because it already a screen built in and it's a pain in the ass to integrate in a car.

To get video output, you have to supply a very specific amount of power via USB-C to the console to convince it to go into dock mode. If you look at the reference here, it's a bit of a mess:

If you rig up a thing to hold the Switch in place behind the seat and do audio out to the car (3.5mm), it'll be much simpler.

If you do end up doing video, maybe get a cable like this so you don't have to worry about the Nintendo Dock:

You still need to supply the proper power to the console which is the annoying part.

u/mjlp716 · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

True, but something like this which I purchased and use is even smaller and fits right in my small switch case. Something the orginal dock can't do.

u/TheRealEpoch · 4 pointsr/SSBM

Go onto smash ladder and play some friendlies! A lot of people there are nice (but don't be surprised if you encounter some salty people).

Next step is to get this and a GC controller (either from eBay or GameStop, just not 3rd party always official)

u/master0fdisaster1 · 4 pointsr/DolphinEmulator

Either the offical GamecubeContoller adapter for WiiU by Nintendo


the Gamecube controller adapter for Wii U & PC by MayFlash.

Both have native support with dolphin and function pretty much identical.

Mayflashs has a pc mode where you can use the gamecube controller as a generic input device. So if you plan on using your gamecube controller for anything else besides dolphin/smash than you should get that one.

If you plan on using gamecube controllers in dolphin those two adapters are the only ones you should consider. Buttons are mapped automatically by dolphin(with these two adapters) so things like deadzones are exactly identical to the console. The native support also has the nice benefit of having no additional input lag.

u/JohnsBonesJones · 4 pointsr/RivalsOfAether

I assume you're talking about a Gamecube controller, in which case this is what you're looking for.

u/Kered13 · 4 pointsr/starcraft

It's originally a Gamecube game obviously, and can be played on Wii as well, but these days most people play on PC netplay. The netplay ladder for both Melee and PM. It has guides to get everything set up, but here is the guide you will want for Melee. You will need to find an NTSC v1.02 Melee ISO, I'm sure you can figure out how to do that ;)

To start off with you can use any PC controller or even a keyboard (it sounds crazy but some people have done it successfully). If you get more serious or you want to play in offline tournaments you will need a Gamecube controller and adapter. Adapters are pretty cheap, just make sure it's a WiiU compatible adapter like this one, Dolphin can detect it in WiiU mode and this will work best. New GC controllers are unfortunately much more expensive, and probably will be until the next Smash game comes out and they make a new batch. This is probably the biggest barrier to entry. You can find lightly used ones for more reasonable prices. It is also possible to repair more damaged controllers (there are guides for this and people who make a business out of it). Third party controllers are generally pretty trash, I would avoid those.

As for actually playing, this guide is the classic for advanced techniques, though it's a lot to take in at once. There are a ton of other guides on Youtube as well if you feel like you need a different explanation or just want something more modern.

u/zqwefty · 4 pointsr/SSBM

You should get the mayflash one; it supports direct input and can be more easily used outside of dolphin.

Mayflash Magic-NS Wireless Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch PC NEOGEO mini

Can you turn on the console wirelessly?

u/SegoliaFlak · 4 pointsr/MonsterHunter

I got one of these the other day and it's fantastic, a couple of things I've seen though:

  • It only lets you connect one controller at a time, you'll need multiple adapters for multiple controllers

  • Even though it lets you connect a joycon to other things, I've seen some people saying it's only a singular joycon (as held sideways)

  • For dualshock 4, I don't think there's a way to remap buttons on switch. This can be a bit jarring as it makes circle the confirmation button (as opposed to 'X' which it's normally mapped to)

    Apparently the Magic-NS solves some of these issues if you're looking for a similar alternative
u/ticktak10 · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Yeah I felt that too when I tried the demo on the switch. I think it is because of the offset analog sticks when compared to the playstation's controller with the analog sticks on the same axis. I've seen a usb dongle that can allow the switch to accept any bluetooth controller so you could play with a ps3 or ps4 controller. These are two I've looked at since the regular joycons keep cramping my hands.



u/1338h4x · 4 pointsr/Kappa

I use my old PS4 Hori RAP4 with a Magic-NS adapter. Pretty nice for how cheap it is, as an added bonus I can also use my old Wii U Pro Controller for platformers and stuff where I want a good old fashioned d-pad instead of that joycon shit.

u/notquark · 4 pointsr/FortniteSwitch

So, in anticipation of this, I bought a bunch of connectors.

Surprisingly, the magic-ns worked out the box. Still have to work on mapping, but paddles and buttons work (plugged in only so far) really well.

u/codenamegamma · 4 pointsr/emulation

to piggyback of this idea. you could always get a Dolphin bar, the connect your wiimote then whatever you want to if you have a older pro controller this works really well, or even the ones that are snes replicas that plug into the wiimtoe will also work.

u/driscoll42 · 4 pointsr/Games

There is almost no reason to ever not use the latest dev version of Dolphin, Netplay being one of the few exceptions. For a specific game you should generally check the wiki, specifically in this case, the entry for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It is playable in Dolphin, however you have to have a Wii MothionPlus and connect it to your PC through the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack, the DolphinBar works well here to assist you.

u/raven575 · 4 pointsr/emulation

I tried using a wireless wii sensor bar and a bluetooth dongle, but that is not easy and you have to get very specific devices. For equal or less money you can get a DolphinBar from $20 I've spent on wii emulation stuff. This device just works. It's easy, just buy it.

u/DietCokeTin · 4 pointsr/gaming

Currently going for $118.

u/TathagataDM · 4 pointsr/emulation

I kinda doubt it, but I'm no expert. You could use the Wii U GameCube adapter though, I imagine.

u/No_Pepper · 4 pointsr/wiiu

First of all, that would be the only reason to use 2 USB ports. One will handle the data from the controllers, and one will power the four controllers. USB 2.0 can't transfer data and power simultaneously.

Second of all, if you look at a photo of the adapter, the plugs are differentiated. Gray is power, and black is data.

u/Freddy_Flamo · 4 pointsr/SSBM

Those things exist so I'm not really surprised.

u/DJBlueJay · 4 pointsr/smashbros

If you require a Gamecube controller soon, and do not already have an adapter, I highly recommend the HORI HORI Battle Pad Turbo. It includes a turbo function, ZL and ZR buttons, as well has a Home button and -/+ buttons. The triggers are different from the regular one, but they are still great. It feels the exact same to hold as a regular GCC. They instead hook up to a Wiimote, and are wireless through that. I almost never tell people to buy third party controllers, but for this scenario, I think they are very amazing for only $25.

They are not hard to find at retailers, but for online they appear to be the second best thing, so get them quick, they are running out fast.

(Also comes in Luigi Version)

u/Connor53 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

I believe you will want to get one of these.

u/Hudbus · 4 pointsr/nintendo

Take a look at this.

That's really the only way to get official GC controllers to work with all Wii U titles that support the Classic Controller.

The overhyped adapter only works with Smash Bros. for some (possibly marketing related) reason.

u/bpear · 4 pointsr/wiiu

If you don't want to use homebrew like someone else suggested (HID to VPAD) . Homebrew is super simple to setup btw, just put some files on your sd card and launch a web page on the wii u browser.


You could get this adapter it plugs into a wii remote and the wii u reads it as a classic controller. I don't know why it has such poor reviews. I have one and it works perfectly fine.

u/schmorgyborgy · 4 pointsr/wiiu

Because not everybody has a Game Cube and Wii, and it is sometimes easier to just have everything on one console. Also, you can use your game cube controller with this

u/Tiger_Millionaire · 4 pointsr/Games

I have one of these:
It works great! You plug it into a Wiimote and then plug a cube controller into it and you're golden. The only downside is you only get one port but it's whatever.
Edit: wrong link

u/ArmyDude956 · 4 pointsr/smashbros

There are actually PC ports of both MGS1 and MGS2, but they are pretty dang old.



However, here's how I recommend doing it.

Get The Twin Snakes for Gamecube. It's a remake of the first one with totally redone cutscenes, redone voice acting, and different music. The music is nowhere near the level of the first one, it just doesn't sound right. But other than the music, I think it's the best version.

Then get the HD collection, if you have a 360 or PS3. This includes HD remakes of MGS2, MGS3, and MGS Peace Walker. Peace Walker was a PSP exclusive before and it's 100x better on console.

I also recommend getting MGS3 on 3DS. It's the best version in my opinion. Use the Circle Pad Pro, though.

You can get MGS4 on PS3 or on PS4 with Sony's PSNow thing, but that's only a rental.

MGS5 Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are both coming out on PC.

Or you can just get the Legacy collection which has literally every Metal Gear game to 2012, and it includes the HD editions. It doesn't have The Twin Snakes though.

u/kautau · 4 pointsr/Bossfight

There’s also a large remaster set for ps3 that has a ton of the games (and a voucher for digital versions of some others)

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

u/halahala1986 · 4 pointsr/truegaming

I believe OP only has the MGS HD collection so he only has MGS 2, 3 and Peace Walker. OP if you're reading this and have a PS3 i highly recommend the MGS legacy Collection.

It has all the games you could possibly need, including the MSX games but they're not required for a playthrough, but just as UsoInSpace said, best play it in release order: 1->2->3->4 and then peace walker since it's the latest one.

u/NFX45 · 4 pointsr/metalgear

I think it just sells quickly because it is a good deal for six games;

MGS1 + VR Missions
and a nice art book.

u/EffrumScufflegrit · 4 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Also about the same price at Amazon with the artbook if you don't mind spending an extra dollar and 90 cents.

u/runtheplacered · 4 pointsr/Games

$43 on Amazon. Even cheaper on the marketplace. $50 at Gamestop. Not doubting you, but I don't think I've ever seen it go for $100. Maybe they started producing more copies after they noticed a demand, kind like like Xenoblade Chronicles? I don't know.

u/str00dles · 4 pointsr/CloneHero

If you want plug and play, look for the X-plorer guitar for Xbox 360. You can plug it in directly to your PC and it should work no problems. Otherwise you need this adapter and a wireless Xbox 360 guitar.

Personally, I would recommend either:

  1. Wired X-plorer

  2. Wireless Guitar Hero 5

  3. Wireless Les Paul

    For the lowest prices, check local sellers on Craigslist/Kijiji and apps like letgo. Ebay is an option too, but you may be spending more money.

u/CEtro569 · 4 pointsr/SSBM

This post belongs in the DDT.

Almost any Gamecube controller will do you fine. The older ones (platinum, indego, etc.) are renowned for being the "best" but at low to high level play it won't really matter. Newer ones will take a while to break in the sticks as they'll be a little stiffer and will have a lot more rebound, but practicing enough should iron out that pretty quick (moonwalks are recommended). The newer ones have different triggers though, and they tend to get stuck every now and then. If you're willing to, sanding down and lubing them a little will make them fantastic controllers for competitive play. This is the one I use and I hear many people say it's one of the best, it's a lot more expensive then the Smash edition ones but they come with a longer cord, I'd still probably recommend the Smash one's though.

u/spinjump · 4 pointsr/smashbros

While you can play melee online with Dolphin, it can be a little laggy unless you are playing someone really close to you geographically. Smash is a game where 1 frame (1/60th of a second) can make all the difference in what happens. If you plan on playing the game competitively, then playing on a console with a CRT is the only way to go. (HDTVs have input lag, often greater than 1/60th of a second and can therefore cause you to get used to bad timings)

Also, you'll definitely want a 1st party gamecube controller, and amazon has brand new white ones for pretty cheap (relatively speaking) here. Unfortunately, colors other than white have been out of production for a long time, so finding one in good condition is a bit harder/more expensive.

u/sboles66 · 4 pointsr/smashbros




Note the latter isn't being released until the wii u version releases, and the latter is also availble with the Bundle

From my own perspective, I could not dream of using Photoshop without having the keyboard within easy reach. I live and die by keyboard shortcuts. As you've found out, using Photoshop with only the pen can feel very inefficient when drawing or editing.

Some Surface and tablet owners use game controllers as a secondary input device in Photoshop. Different tools are mapped to the controller buttons.

A popular controller is the Playstation Move Navigation Controller

So for example, you could set it up like this.

The controller is wireless so it should be pretty convenient to use. But personally, I think it's just better to keep the keyboard attached.

u/AydenHa · 4 pointsr/patientgamers

For Skyward Sword the original Wii controller is mandatory, swordplay in that game follows your own movement like sideslash, slashing up etc. As for the rest of these games, get a Classic controller. And yeah, try to find Xenoblade Chronicles first ;) It's spectacular.

Other games I would suggest (playable with a Pro controller):

  • Monster Hunter

    You can get MH Tri on the Wii, but MH 3 Ultimate is a bit nicer to look at. Equally great though imo.

  • Smash Bros. Brawl

    Awesome game, also for the Wii. Great to play with your daughter, if she likes that kind of games.

  • Pandora's Tower
  • The Last Story

    Very nice RPG's, very story-driven.

    There are more of which I've heard good things like Tales of Syphonia, Arc Rise Fantasia and Muramasa, but I'm not in a position to recommend those cause I haven't played them :)

    As for the Wii U, there are only a few big games out at the moment but they're all pretty great (so I hear). A must buy (as was for me at least, alongside MH3U) is Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. Colorful, atmospheric, awesome overall.

    Edit: Of course I meant the Classic controller, not the Pro. Pro is for Wii U only. I have both and switched them up.

For single player games, consider picking up a wired Xbox 360 controller to play with. That way you get the control scheme that your prefer as well as the bonus of a higher resolution/better graphics/mods/etc. I wouldn't recommend it for multiplayer though--for obvious reasons.

u/truemeliorist · 4 pointsr/vitahacks

I like it! However, there are some tweaks you may want to consider (if you want some unsolicited feedback):

  1. Can you bring something over the shoulders that the top of the vita could slide into? The ergo grip I am using has them and I love it compared to the other ones. It really helps to keep the console steady. I have other grips that just clip around the sides and the vita constantly pops out.
  2. I'd love to see you integrate the buttons somehow. Trigger style buttons always seem to be nicer to me than the bumper style that the vita normally has. But that's totally personal preference.

    Otherwise, it looks AWESOME and I really love the stand you've included. Definitely great work! I wish I could find a mashup of your grip and the one I'm currently using because they both have things I want :)

A lot of people have. The recommended solution is thumbstick covers such as these.

u/DiscoKid28 · 3 pointsr/PS4

The same thing happened to me. Three months after purchase, the rubber wore down to the plastic (mostly because of Injustice: Gods Among Us).

I called Sony Customer Support: (800) 345-7669
I explained what happened, and a lady explained to me directions regarding shipping the controller to this address...
MTC Fort Wayne
2505 Wayne Haven St,
Fort Wayne, IN 46803

They replaced the controller for free, however I paid about $10 for shipping (eh...). Once I got the new controller, which only took a few days, I bought these things:

If I were you, I would just go ahead and buy the grips. They're awesome, comfy, and you can't tell if there is busted rubber underneath them. If you want to know that you have a pristine set of thumbsticks underneath them, however...then yeah, call Sony and they should replace the controller if it's under their warranty. Hope that helps.

u/Symbiotx · 3 pointsr/PS4

I got some of these because I had the same problem. They're pretty good. I'd prefer to not use them, but they work.

u/Alsharad · 3 pointsr/PS4

I replaced the whole thumbsticks, this is a great deal

if you don't want to open up the controller, I recommend Grip-it

u/Insert-coins4sex · 3 pointsr/PS4

these work great for me

u/anewprotagonist · 3 pointsr/PS4

The solution to your problem is under $5.00! I'll never go back to playing without them.

u/Vivalafred88 · 3 pointsr/PS4

Yeah. I got my PS4 around March and I noticed the left stick being worn off. I never had this issue with my DS3 and they're about 4 yrs old lol

I was looking at these lately.

u/stop_drop_rofl · 3 pointsr/PS4

No third party controllers, but you could try getting either new thumbsticks (Xbox One thumbsticks fit perfectly), or you could get a thumbstick cover.

Ive used GelTabz before and liked them. They add a good amount of gel thickness that should make clicking the joystick more pleasant.

Grip-It thumbstick covers are also considered very good.

u/ZebraMuffin · 3 pointsr/PS4

The reason why they won't replace them without proof of purchase is due to the possibility of them being stolen. They know they're still technically under warranty, they just don't want to risk it.

You can get covers, I've heard a lot about GelTabZ, and Grip-iT. I've also read of people ordering replacement sticks on eBay, but I have no experience with that.

u/mtoboggan · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/orlando2542 · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/Bizquick1 · 3 pointsr/PS4

If you aren't needing the exact cover you can get some decent ones from Amazon. I bought some from Target in the electronics section because I had the same problem and they were only about $10.

u/The_Fat_One · 3 pointsr/PS4

You must be new to this sub, we've been bitching about this for a few months : ) I had the same problem, I just bought some of these. Love em.

u/FuzzeWuzze · 3 pointsr/FIFA

They work great. Only put them on controllers that arent already fucked up though, the analog sticks without the original covers have really sharp edges that cut through any addon cover.

u/Ikeelu · 3 pointsr/PS4
u/Adayatatime · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Most games are compatible with controllers. A xbox 360 controller will work with no extra drivers since the drivers are already in Windows. Although, you need an adapter to make a wireless controller work. My suggestion is to get a wired controller which plugs in over USB and requires nothing special to work. A PS4 controller, Xbox One controller, and even PS3 controller will work but you have to use special software to make them work. For ease of use, just get a wired xbox 360 controller.

u/MrBokbagok · 3 pointsr/gaming

I did this


I preferred getting the wired one to get the actual controller instead of a wireless knockoff that might not work well

u/muskieratboi · 3 pointsr/gaming

of course it'd be daunting if you're playing a SNES game on a freaking JOYSTICK.

Get this. Be Happy.

u/jmf145 · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/foamed · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I'd personally just purchase a Wired Xbox 360 controller and also an USB extension cord on the side. No need for batteries, the controller is great, it's cheap and it's more or less the easiest solution

u/juaquin · 3 pointsr/Steam

I haven't tried the Steam version of GTA4, but yeah, when I played the PC version in the past it was completely painless. The 360 controller is supported by default:

You'd need something like this if you don't already have a controller. It contains both the controller and the USB wireless adapter. You can also get a normal wired one but for the small price difference, I would go wireless. Just personal preference.

u/AgentDonut · 3 pointsr/gaming

I just bought one the other day. If it's not available in stores, online is a pretty good option.

u/Pielikey · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

the wired xbox 360 controller is almost always the go-to reccomendation because:

1 it'll last a long time

2 it needs no drivers on windows computers (but if it does they are easy drivers to get)

3 it's comfortable to hold

you can buy a wireless controller too if you want but you also have to buy a reciever for it (which costs around 15 bucks or so)

u/EthanBB · 3 pointsr/Games
u/unforgiven91 · 3 pointsr/Steam

A standard wired controller

should work as a simple plug and play. Mine does.

u/boxsterguy · 3 pointsr/htpc

> I hear Xbox controllers work great, but they are so expensive comparatively.

How many controllers do you need? How often are you buying new controllers? The "Xbox 360 Controller for Windows" (includes the wireless dongle, does not include a rechargeable battery but does include 2 AAs) is currently about $50. Adding a Quick Charge Kit and spare battery is an optional ~$45 that you can spend later. Also, I believe that the wireless dongle allows multiple controllers to connect to it (I haven't verified this, though), so you can buy "regular" Xbox 360 wireless controllers for players 2-4.

Or you can get a wired controller for $34 and skip all the battery stuff.

I guess that's kind of expensive, but they Just Work^tm so you don't have to keep messing around with them or replacing them.

u/Bapz05 · 3 pointsr/vita

depends on the grips you get these are ok i used them for a while

then i got these and they are so much more comfortable and the triggers feel softer and easier to pull

u/tehace · 3 pointsr/gaming

Wow those grips look better than mines! What are they called and where do you get them?. My main problem with the PDP grips is that the triggers aren't easier to press.

u/Saibaka · 3 pointsr/vita

I own these and while they are comfy the L trigger feels squishy. Tried out the Nyko one without the battery pack and it felt to big for my hands.

I am going to jump to the $5 one myself.

u/Opa1979 · 3 pointsr/DestinyTheGame
u/Metroidam11 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Honestly, I think we'll see a third party manufacturer make exactly what you said: a holder with palm grips and comfortable shoulder buttons.

I tried something like this for the PS Vita and it felt so good.

u/myhumps3 · 3 pointsr/vita

The screens are the same dimensions so the 2000 screen protectors will work fine.

And I have this trigger grip which works great for extended play sessions.

u/the_moonface · 3 pointsr/PS4

You can rotate games so I wouldn't worry about a bigger memory card but I highly recommend getting trigger grips as the bumpers are awful. It'd also be nice if Sony created a good L1/L2/R1/R2 solution. Here's the one I use:

u/thecolemanation · 3 pointsr/vita

I tried this one and hated it:

But then I bought this one and it is amazing:

I'm sure if you search on Amazon you'll find the same one for the same price I got it (around $10).

Look for ones that expand the trigger grips and don't block the charger.

u/AkooglyEyes · 3 pointsr/gamecollecting

The N64 stick is a pretty common mod, you can buy the replacement stick assemblies online:

u/kaltivel · 3 pointsr/gaming

You can get replacement analog sticks that are more like the GC controller's analog sticks:

There's a writeup on installing it here:

u/DevinWatson · 3 pointsr/gamecollecting

I replaced a few of my worn joysticks with these:

Makes it more like a GameCube stick. I know it's not to everyone's taste but it definitely made THPS2 a lot easier to play.

u/Idiotology101 · 3 pointsr/VaporwaveAesthetics

I bought GameCube style joysticks off amazon for about $10 each. I’ve used one for about a year and haven’t had any issues so far.

u/djk7 · 3 pointsr/gaming

Is this it?

u/Snoopy31195 · 3 pointsr/Gameboy

I don't see how he can justify those prices. $80 for pokemon, they go for like $25! The battery costs $2 and someone could learn to do it in 30 minutes, and maybe a new sticker for a few more dollars. The N64 joystick replacement actually looks very easy to do, no soldering required, but that is atleast a reasonable price. $10 part and Tutorial

u/brockthefenton · 3 pointsr/zelda

These are incredibly good for replacing old worn N64 joysticks! Easy to install and will last much much longer!

The replacement feels very similar to a gamecube or Wii joystick.

Hope this helps!

u/HarithBK · 3 pointsr/gaming

don't forget to fix the joystick while you are at it with a repalcement unit

u/Toastermaface · 3 pointsr/trees

easy! 7 screws, and 2 smaller ones and the controller is apart. There were 2 or 3 more holding in the joystick unit, and it was plug and play. There was a minor bit of sanding to get it to plug in, then just put it all back together. I got it here but the price went up to $11.95 with free shipping. It's basically a new controller, and you won't have to worry about the joystick getting lose like the old ones did.

u/Mead_Man · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/TyranusCannabis · 3 pointsr/wiiu

You could get something like this adapter and plug your GC controller in assuming you have one:

Or the Hori Battle Pad (Which isn't as good as a real GC controller but still nice), both are plugged in through your wiimote to act as "unofficial" classic controllers. So you can use a GC controller on any game that allows a Classic Controller.

As for an actual 64 Controller, that'd be pretty difficult but I think the GC controller is fundamentally better.

u/marioman63 · 3 pointsr/wiiu

no controllers have been confirmed for smash 4, but your safest option would be the classic controller. i have heard this is a good option if you want to use gamecube controllers on wii u. note that games do not detect the controller as a gamecube one, but it at least gives you the button layout of a gamecube controller for games that use classic controllers. because the system thinks it is a classic controller, it will work in both wii u and wii mode, and therefore brawl and (most likely) smash 4.

u/colossalwaffle · 3 pointsr/residentevil

Might not be exactly what you want to hear, but I think you could greatly improve your experience by upgrading your headset. I have the Sony Playstation Gold headset which you can get on amazon for 70 bucks and I personally love it. I have been using it since I first got my PS4 years ago back when it was 100 dollars and I am still thrilled with it. The surround sound is really incredible and you can tell where everything is coming from. Works great if you are into playing multiplayer shooters as well, being able to hear enemy players can give you a huge competitive advantage you didnt even know you were missing out on.

u/gosabres · 3 pointsr/consoledeals

After shipping, $77.55. Shipping kinda kills this deal. Amazon has it for $80.50 w/ Prime. $2.95 more for 2 day shipping. Tried the NEW10 code with no success.

u/Natenute · 3 pointsr/PS4

Ps4 Gold Headset is currently $59.00. Not a huge savings, but decent.

u/cowsareverywhere · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Also available at Amazon for $65.

u/Prescott- · 3 pointsr/PS4

I found golds are really good, I got them on sale for $70 though. Normally they are $99.

Platinums are on $120 on amazon. They are better built and sleeker IMO. I'd compare the two online and see if the price hike is worth it to you.

u/TheDon2016 · 3 pointsr/PSVR

As mentioned you can't do 3D sound wirelessly

I like the Playstation Gold headset. It's incredibly comfortable and cheap. Noise canceling too. The sound is excellent, but then again I'm not an audiophile.

u/biezel · 3 pointsr/gaming

The Playstation Gold headset is awesome. Very comfortable, great battery life, great sound and the mic is excellent.

u/clearshot66 · 3 pointsr/PS4

$74. Cheaper at walmart too, also support virtual surround sound (mimics it pretty well, not like $250 headset level but they're awesome).

u/DJXiej · 3 pointsr/PS4

The Sony Golds seem to be the go to starter headsets on this sub. You can frequently find them at ~$60.

I have a set myself, and no complaints here.

u/dayjobtitus · 3 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

Sony gold Bluetooth headset is pretty awesome. Sound is great and when i discovered it works on all my computers and the ps4 i was ecstatic. Also cheap.

u/ahockeyjock · 3 pointsr/cade

You can get a DolphinBar on Amazon for $20; it lets you use a USB Wii Bar modified to work on computer. It lets you use up to 4 Wiimote controllers. You can remove the Nunchuk and use Wii gun controllers and easily use Wii rifles too I guess. Here's some cheap ones:

All can be used with regular WiiMote using this Dolphinbar:

u/IdeaPowered · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

You get a dolphin bar and you are set to go with a Wiimote :]

u/Shaggy_One · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Yeah they're pretty sweet. I bought one and didn't know it was till I opened it. This is the one I bought.

u/iCeCoCaCoLa64tv · 3 pointsr/CloneHero

You actually can use a Wii guitar on PC using a program called GlovePIE, if you manage to connect it (which I recommend doing with this). Just do some Googling.

But if you want an Xbox guitar, you can either get an Xplorer, which is wired, or a Les Paul, which is wireless so you'll need a 360 receiver.

u/KingdaToro · 3 pointsr/emulation

> But for a lot of Wii games you're just gonna have to bite the bullet and buy a Wiimote and a Bluetooth dongle.

This is much better and works with the Wii Remote Plus. It's a USB sensor bar with Bluetooth built in.

u/Niglurion · 3 pointsr/emulation

No need a Bluetooth dongle, just the dolphin bar. It's plug and play, no driver needed, and native in Dolphin. Don't bother yourself with a dongle. ;) you can read a review on it on dolphin blog if you want.
Amazon link:

u/Kenaf · 3 pointsr/wiiu

Probably gonna want to buy two extension cables. Looking at this it looks like it uses two USB ports.

Not sure if each USB controls two controllers or if its a power thing.

u/prefernoname · 3 pointsr/wiiu

As long as the controllers work for the game itself, you can use them in any combination. Note, however, that you'll need the GameCube Controller Adapter for the GC controllers. If you have a lot of GC controllers or friends who have them, you can technically have 8 GC controllers for 8-player mode assuming that you have two GC controller adapters.

u/Bill_H_Cosby · 3 pointsr/smashbros
u/_thousandisland · 3 pointsr/wiiu


BUT I tried to "add to cart" and it didn't actually add anything.... Anyone else have luck?

EDIT: out of stock

u/eddrix · 3 pointsr/wiiu

got one just now, I was refreshing the page that lists all new available, as the main page didnt seem to be getting it.

u/nthny · 3 pointsr/nintendo

There are a number of solutions that involve plugging the controller into the Wii Remote so that the Wii U will read them as a Classic Controller.

For GameCube, you've got a couple of options. You can go with this adapter, which lets you use your existing GameCube controller. There's also this controller from Hori, which is an actual Classic Controller in the exact shape of the GameCube controller. I have both, and they both work well, but I prefer the Hori controller.

For N64, there's this adapter. It's the same idea as the GameCube adapter linked above. I haven't used this one myself, so I can't tell you from experience how well it works.

Because all of these options register as Classic Controllers, they have the advantage of being compatible with any Wii or Wii U game that uses it, which is very many of them. For N64 games on the Wii U Virtual Console, you'll be able to adjust the button mapping in the options menu to make sure everything plays just the way you remember it.

I hope this is helpful. Enjoy your Wii U, and welcome to the club!

u/Sandfall · 3 pointsr/smashbros

The Mayflash adapters lag a little too much for my tastes (it's slight, but noticeable)
Personally, I'd just go with this option if you can't find an adapter:

u/jwlacy · 3 pointsr/wiiu

I think it will be hit and miss since Nintendo no longer has them in production. PDP may be a route, but also take a look at the HORI Battlepad as well.

u/Zesso · 3 pointsr/smashbros
u/ParusiMizuhashi · 3 pointsr/Games

Those PDP controllers are horrible. I couldn't recommend AGAINST them more. Hori's version on the other hand, is very good.

u/angie0924 · 3 pointsr/wiiu

You're talking about these right? That's cool! so they are confirmed to work with N64 games in Wii Mode?

u/Sassafrass238 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Here you go:

It registers as a classic controller, but has the layout of a gamecube controller, so it can be used with a lot more games than the gamecube adaptor.

u/TemptedTemplar · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Mayflash would be your next best bet.

u/Captainjim17 · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You can even get a Dreamcast to USB adapter and play it how it was originally meant to be played.

EDIT: sorry didn't notice you said Gamecube but you get the gist.

u/86themayo · 3 pointsr/wiiu

It really bugs me to play with a remote. Even the tablet is annoying to play with. If you and your friends are used to Melee, I would buy a GameCube adaptor (this one is only $15 on Amazon and a couple of controllers.

u/darderp · 3 pointsr/smashbros

The mayflash adapter and the official Nintendo one work with Windows 10.

I use the Mayflash one.

u/sniglom · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

There are commercial adapters availble as well, but I don't know which one is best. Here is an example:

Good luck!

u/qwertylerqw · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

They’re expensive because they’re out of stock and scalpers sell them at the increased price. Nintendo hasn’t been great at restocking them, but there are a ton of alternatives such as the Mayflash adapter

u/DaMattman · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Pick up one of the Mayflash adaptors. They work natively with Switches and are extremely easy to set up with Dolphin. I would also recommend an official gamecube controller instead of a 3rd party. They will generally be much higher quality and you should be able to pick one up at a decent price at a retro game store. It will save you a lot of future headaches I swear.

u/Silverhand7 · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

If you want to use your gamecube controllers this adapter works pretty well. However, it works as DirectInput, so you'll need to run an additional program to get it working with games that only support XInput. Since you mentioned using it for fighting games though, I wouldn't recommend using the GC controller for most of those. The dpad on it is pretty awful, and very few people play fighting games on analog stick (with the exception of stuff that's designed around actual analog input, but that's not most 2D fighting games). If you're not too used to playing them with controller and don't mind learning something new I'd highly recommend just playing on keyboard. It sounds weird to a lot of people for some reason, but it's much closer to an arcade stick than a controller is (and is almost identical to a Hitbox if you know what that is). If you're interested in playing on keyboard and want more info on that I'd be glad to share more.

u/Luk101 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

You can find a mayflash for 14.29 on amazon here:

And as for a good GC controller, yeah it's gonna cost around 25 bucks for a new smash one. Plus 35+22 is 57 not 77 soooo yeah math is hard. Also you can't play pm on a 2ds or a 3ds so I'm not exactly sure why you're posting to this subreddit.

u/herogerik · 3 pointsr/gaming

You need this. Plug and play, works great. No input lag. 4 controllers at once. LINK

Unfortunately, I don't know of any USB based controllers that have the same build quality as the original GCN controllers.

u/Froq · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Raphnet used to be the bees knees before the Wii U Adapter and Native Control support came out. All the ones saying that the Raphnet is better are probably just the older posts. The current best adapter is the Wii U Official USB Adapter. Inputs should be basically identical to console. You can try and get it from Gamestop. If not the mayflash one works fine you can get it from Amazon, Make sure you set it up using the guide that Smashladder provides, using Wii U mode.

???? You don’t even need to get their official one so you could probably find another cheaper one for less

u/nermal543 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

It's a bit pricey at $30, but the Hori Adapter is officially licensed, so it's guaranteed to work.

u/squidnow_amiibo · 3 pointsr/smashbros

I was planning on getting the official nintendo one

What advantages does the one you link to in the post have over it?

u/JackSparrowUSA · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

There is an officially licensed USB 2.0 adapter made by Hori, but it’s $30, so it’s quite a bit more expensive with no extra functionality.

Unfortunately no for the patch. I have no clue why they won’t activate the USB 3.0. I wish they would though. My WiFi speed is faster than the USB 2.0, but obviously stability is better with the LAN adapter. With USB 3.0, we could have best of both worlds.

u/SmashPandora99 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Official Nintendo Adapter you should probably get this one. It's sold by Nintendo, so I'm sure it works great and won't have any problems

u/jthead · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yes I have the adapter by HORI I am sure other adapters could work well, but I am always hesitant to get non-licenced stuff. Though I am not sure that is really the issue. My SO usually plays rocket league with me in handheld mode, and she isn't getting any rubberbanding either.

There might be two things you want to look into with your router. Do you know if it is 802.11ac or 802.11n? Also when you run an internet test what NAT Type do you get?

u/driggity · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

My switch was bricked while using this FastSnail dongle and the OEM power supply. Had to send it back to Nintendo and lost all saved game data. I guess it could have been random but my guess is that it was the dongle.

u/ninusc92 · 3 pointsr/xboxone

another option would be something like this

u/Whimsical_Sandwich · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

honestly, if anyone owns a PS4 or Xbox One controller and often plays their Switch in Docked mode, please...just buy a Mayflash adapter. It is by far more affordable and you can use it wirelessly via bluetooth. It's the quite honestly the best alternative you have to getting an inexpensive controller that's bluetooth without having to buy a whole other controller. It doesn't support more than one controller synced at a time unfortunately, but hey you're at least guaranteed co-op and the rest of your friends can just bring a pro controller or joy con of their own. I switch between PS4 and Xbox controllers depending on which I feel like using and it works fine with either.

u/datwunkid · 3 pointsr/gadgets

You can probably use one of the many Xbox to Switch controller adapters out right now with this.

u/BailableCrane10 · 3 pointsr/FortNiteBR

Does it work with Xbox controllers?

Edit: This Magic Ns works for Xbox One S controllers. You do need to be in dock mode to use it.

u/Vorcton · 3 pointsr/smashbros

You could always buy an adapter (I got this one that lets you use a variety of controllers).

Be warned you'll need 1 per controller (can't use more than 1 controller on 1 adapter).

I know it isn't the best solution, but definitely cheaper than buying more pro controllers and letting the old ones collect dust.

u/DumpedCores · 3 pointsr/nintendo

I could not find a link to this Magic NS adapter in the entire thread, so I went looking. I am pretty sure I found it :

u/pmo2408 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

He can also continue using an Xbox controller either wireless (if it is a Bluetooth model) or wired (except for Xbox 360 controllers) with the Mayflash NS which I use my elite pro controller for Splatoon sometimes:

Mayflash Magic-NS Wireless Controller Adapter for Nintendo Switch PC NEOGEO mini

u/Lorben · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Mayflash Magic-NS or an 8bitdo adapter.

Pros for Mayflash -

Mayflash has a USB pass through on it so you can use controllers as wired controllers. Because of that it can work with some controllers that don't work as wireless because they lack bluetooth, such as the older pre-bluetooth Xbox One controllers or Xbox 360 controllers.

Cons for Mayflash -

Feels cheaper than the 8bitdo adapters. Sync\controller type button is super small and annoying to use.

Pros for 8bitdo -

Feels better built. Sync button is not as bad to use. Looks nicer attached to the dock.

Cons for 8bitdo -

Does not allow controllers to be used as wired controllers. Will not work with pre-bluetooth Xbox One controllers or 360 controllers. You need to update the firmware with a computer before first use. Costs an extra couple bucks.

u/MaximusNeo701 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Correct it is the mayflash one. It has different modes depending on the device you have it hooked up to but it's the same adapter. Let me actually try and use it on my PS4 tonight and report back.

u/Tyr808 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

u/Sages · 3 pointsr/smashbros

The Official White one from Amazon, is the one I purchased and it works great.

But do note, that a new GC Controller will be released when Smash Bros. Wii U is released. (Rumored to be in November) The new Smash 4 in Black will also be $30.00

u/dydtaylor · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Amazon typically has them for a pretty reasonable price, $28 right now, but not everyone likes the White ones because of preference issues (although a lot of fast, technical pros like Dr. PP use them).

You can also try Ebay if you want, as they typically have more expensive, rarer controllers. (They also have the club nintendo controllers, panasonic grey, clear controllers, etc. you just have to look and be willing to spend extra money)

u/pooch182 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

First party controllers are the only route you should be taking. For the memory card, you're probably fine. This is a great buy, and it'll last you well past the time 3 or 4 of the knock offs would last you.

u/thegigglepuss · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Do NOT go off brand. First party controllers are the way to go for Gamecube. If you are a competitive gamer and want the most useful, best quality controller get one of these: The extra long cord is a life saver.

If you are just looking for run of the mill Gamecube controller, I would still just go with Amazon.

u/Szalkow · 3 pointsr/nintendo

>I wan't a brand new official GCN controller. Only have 2 clones.

Why wait?

u/SailorMercurySSB · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

I use one of these:

Basically they're the white japan-exclusive gamecube controllers manufactured during the wii's lifespan (hence their being white) but before smash 4's release.

The price for a new one has shot up a ton since the smash-branded GCCs came out (presumably because they're no longer manufactured?), but imo these feel way better than the sm4sh ones, both build quality and responsiveness-wise. Word on the street is (according to DJ Nintendo) they're also some of the best for shield dropping? At least in melee, where shield dropping also happens to be a lot tighter than in PM - not sure if this is a factor for you or not.

Regardless, if you're able to drop the cash on one I'd say it's definitely worth it and they're definitely top-notch.

The only downside is that they can in fact suffer from the "sticky trigger" syndrome, which is when pressing the triggers from a sharp downward angle/at the lower corner of the buttons will make them have a lot more resistance when sliding down, the "solution" to which is to just press them straight on instead (lol). That is, if you're hitting the triggers fairly normally, it likely won't even be a thing you'd notice - but it does exist.

u/Im_French · 3 pointsr/SSBM

Yeah they're made by nintendo and they're like the 2nd gen or something after the indigo controllers and made exactly the same, also it's the ones the majority of top players use iirc and they're known to be better than the smash 4 ones, still it's kind of a lottery and you could get one with shitty backdashes that never breaks in or something, you can never be 100% sure you'll get a perfect controller out of the box but the white japanese ones are your best bet.

Those are the ones:
Only found the smash 4 ones on US amazon for some reason :/, Dunno if you can still order those through canada

u/thezander8 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

We're playing a game with discs that costs $180 where the best controller costs $90 and you're worried about costs?

CRTs, Gamecubes, controllers, memory cards, and discs are just going to keep going up in price until the community can't grow anymore. A Melee port sucks in the short term but is very necessary in the long run.

u/zekkas · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Dear M2K, Amazon can handle all of your controller needs. Borrowing isn't necessary.

A bit more expensive, but here

u/Psycho_Ghost · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Have I got a [website] ( for you to look at! ;)

But seriously, welcome to the community! :D I would recommend investing in an official Gamecube controller as they control amazingly and are much more durable than third-party controllers.

u/NLCM · 3 pointsr/emulation

Those USB controllers are pure SHIT the thumb sticks on them are horrible and pretty much useless.

Best option is to pick up an original N64 controller from Ebay or craigslist and use it with this adapter:

Trust me, you'll waste your money if you buy one of those cheap knock-off USB n64 controllers.

u/DownloadingKFC · 3 pointsr/teenagers

emulators :D!
If you want to play with a friend, get project64k so you guys can play online.

get this if you want to use your controller

u/troweigh · 3 pointsr/gaming

Try getting one of these, and then run an N64 emulator on your computer. I do this with my SNES controller, and it works amazingly well for that. Also, I have a slight advantage, since I have one of my computers connected to my flatscreen.

u/habisch · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I'm a big fan of emulation. If you think you may ever want to some more N64 gaming, consider picking up one of these adapters. That, plus an n64 controller will run you less than $30 and you've set up a pretty authentic n64 experience.

Also, people have reminded you of Link to the Past, and even the original Legend of Zelda (which I'd recommend you try eventually, if nothing else to get a feel for the types of games NES had!) - keep in mind these are easily emulated and a ps3 or xbox controller will map very well.

u/cakezilla · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/senichi · 3 pointsr/speedrun
  • I personally use this adapter and an actual N64 controller. I also own an N64 and play games on that (but can only stream PC, so can't stream console). It's really nice because I can use the same controller for console and emulator. I used to run with this controller, and it worked great, but I didn't like it because it was awkward when I played on console with an N64 controller. I know there are also a lot of emulator streamers that just use an Xbox 360 controller because they have native support with windows. Basically, use whatever is comfortable for you.

  • I just Google "___ N64 rom" and take either the top or second result. There's not really going to be a "safe" way to download roms because it's illegal and nobody is there to regulate it. It's always going to be a risk, but it usually isn't. At least I've never had any problems.

  • has the best prices I've seen. The only real competitors to that I can think of would be local game stores, which would still be more expensive, but the price is close when you add shipping costs.
u/Mooseral · 3 pointsr/Warthunder

Would have worked much like any gamepad:

The N64's single analog stick might make things interesting, though.

u/rupturedprolapsed · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Just get one of these and you're all set!

u/OminousHippo · 3 pointsr/gaming

One might consider investing in one of these.

u/THEREALKINGPRO · 3 pointsr/TagPro

So the first step is getting the controller to pc adapter, I have found one for a nice price here (you do not have to use that one, in fact you should be able to use any adapter, sadly there is no other way to do this without an adapter). The adapter should work right out of the box, the drivers should be preinstalled on your computer. There should be settings where you can change what gets controlled by the N64 controller. If it does not work right away, shoot me a pm and I will help yout get the software required to use the controller.

u/CaptBow · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Yeah. I use Project64 and use this N64 controller adapter that I just plug in the controller to. It works great!

u/honsense · 3 pointsr/gaming

Also, if he prefers real N64 controllers, I've got 2 of these and they work perfectly for 4-player Mario Kart action.

u/shadow85 · 3 pointsr/nintendo
I have 2 of these. They have 2 controller ports each so I can have up to 4 players. Works awesome and is reasonably priced.

Siden Wii controller fungerer greit - Her er kanskje noe inspirasjon:
[Bruke Wii controller som mus] (
System for å bruke kontrollere på tvers av konsoller/PC.
Enhåndskontroller beregnet på Playstation

Husk at et keyboard kun er en samling knapper, og en knapp er kun en metode for å midlertidig lage en krets mellom to punkter.
Dersom han kan bevege andre armen/fingre/tær/fot whatever på en kontrollert måte, er det mulig å lage til trykknapper som igjen er koblet til kontaktpunktene for knapper på et tastatur/numpad man ofrer.

Er ikke noe problem å ha flere tastatur og/eller mus på samme PC utenom at det kan bli kaotisk om man bruker dem samtidig.

Man kan kjøpe ferdige knapper, (finnes også store knapper å få kjøpt) eller lage selv med f.eks en fjæret plate og to små metallplater.

Har man laget til knapper som kan brukes, kan man så sette dem opp med macroer etc.

u/rougegoat · 3 pointsr/Games

> Why the hell are they not using the "nunchuck" in the left hand to control movement? I think the game would be a lot less sluggish with proper analog movement.

The nunchuck(I'm assuming you mean the Navigation Controller) isn't trackable, so Sony likely telling developers to not rely on it.

As for sluggish controls...I feel like that's kind of the point. Golems aren't known for being super smooth and swift.

u/mneptok · 3 pointsr/PS3

Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 are platform exclusive shooters with 3D support. I have played both, and both are worth their current non-release day price.

I have not played either of these games with the Playstation Move/Eye, Playstation Nav controller and/or the Playstation Sharpshooter. But you can. For a most un-desktop computer experience.

u/shoehaunted · 3 pointsr/Steam

Maybe getting a Playstation Move Navigation Controller or just using half of a regular gamepad would open up a few different games you can play. Use Steams controller binding software to bind eveything you need to the right side. Could work for racing games or platformers.

Microsoft is also coming out with their own Adaptive Controller which should allow lots of customization to use a foot pedal and other things.

Edit: Another option would be a flight stick

u/bushrod · 3 pointsr/PSVR

I've been saying that since the Move controller came out for PS3, when you needed a special "Navigation controller" for the thumbstick. Why not just put a thumbstick on all Move controllers? Mind-bogglingly stupid decision.

u/Vanir_Islanzadi · 3 pointsr/wiiu

1.) Neither, You need to use either Wiimote (normal or plus), Wiimote+Nunchuk, or Wii Classic Controller (or CCPro). I recommend the Wii Classic Controller Pro. However, you can use the Gamepad as a screen for your Wii games.

2.) Seeing as you haven't played a game since the Gamecube era, and having no idea of what type of games you enjoy except SSB, I can barely recommend games, but: Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Sonic: Lost World, The Wonderful 101, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, New Super Mario Bros. U (and Luigi U), maybe Lego City: Undercover or Zombi U, and eventually Mario Kart 8.

3.) Injustice is a good game, though I believe the Wii U version doesn't have all the DLC/doesn't have the 'Ultimate Edition). Black Ops 2 is good if you enjoy Call of Duty post Modern Warfare 4. Neither games are 'elite/hardcore' in their respective genres (Fighting/FPS).

4.) I'd recommend the Wii U Pro Controller for most Wii U games that support it. There are some good Virtual Console titles on the Wii U eshop, like Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Megaman X, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Earthbound for SNES, and more recently Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Metroid Fusion, and Kirby & the Amazing Mirror for GBA, with Golden Sun, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Yoshi's Island coming in the next week.

u/Kurros_ · 3 pointsr/wiiu

The game pad turns off when you switch to Wii mode.

You will need the Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck to play the classic Wii games but, the classic Wii remote will work as well if you already own that. In addition, I'd also recommend grabbing a classic controller if you plan on playing Wii games like Super Smash Bros Brawl as the Wii U Pro Controller will not work.

There is an official forum list here of compatible external hard drives, but I haven't put much of a dent in mine yet so, you may want to hold off.

Typical file sizes for older SNES games seem to be in the 20-30 MB range.

u/Damascius · 3 pointsr/gaming

You should look into emulating it and playing it with a controller.

The Wii classic pro controller is great for those purposes:

You'll need one of these to use it with a PC:

u/fudgepop01 · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Nope! They're official. The [Classic Controller Pro] is basically classic controller 2.0 and was once produced by Nintendo.

You may be thinking of something like [This].

However, if I could find a CCP that plugs directly into the Wii console like a GCC, I would buy It in a heartbeat. o3o

u/Navolas2 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

"a converter"

I'm assuming you mean this, the Mayflash Adapter. From what I've heard it works great. It just maps the Gamecube controller as though it was a Classic Controller.

u/Randomwaffle23 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

If you want, you can pick up one of these adapters for $15. It lets you use your GC controller as a classic controller.

u/SteroidSandwich · 3 pointsr/gaming

I brought this up before... Over 30 redditors sent me a link to this

u/Ligless · 3 pointsr/gaming
u/tafovov · 3 pointsr/smashbros

You could try one of these.

It lets you plug the GC controller into a wiimote like a classic controller, so it will work for any game with classic controller support, like brawl.

u/theblamergamer · 3 pointsr/Games

This may solve the problem.

u/DJWhyYou · 3 pointsr/gaming

You can buy adapters that plug into your WiiMote for your GCN controllers.
I'm not sure if that exact one will be compatible with SSBU, but it is compatible with Brawl when played on WiiU. There are more out there now than will be compatible with SSBU.

u/Kajean · 3 pointsr/gaming

Apparently this is a thing. So just keep using GC controller I guess.

u/RastaSauce · 3 pointsr/smashbros

There is, but only with an wiimote and adapter for each GC controller.

u/Gammapod · 3 pointsr/wiiu

There's only one game in Nintendo Land that requires a Nunchuk, but it's one of the most fun (it's the Metroid one). The rest only need Wii Remotes (be sure you buy ones with MotionPlus, though, as the Zelda game requires it).

For Brawl, you can use either a Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk (my personal favorite), Wii Remote + Classic Controller, or a Gamecube controller. There are no Gamecube controller ports on the Wii U, though, so you'd have to use an adapter.

Mario Kart Wii can be controlled with a Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk, or Wii Remote + Classic Controller. I wouldn't recommend buying any Classic Controllers unless you plan to play a lot of Wii games. The newer Pro Controllers are better, but are incompatible with Wii games.

edit: Linked to a gamecube adapter.

Mayflash Nintendo GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii/Wii U by Mayflash

I've been using this for the past couple months, works great

u/ScorchRaserik · 3 pointsr/wiiu

It plugs into the Wiimote and treats the GC controller like a Classic Controller.

u/Oshtoby · 3 pointsr/SSBPM

Project M on the Wii U will only support Wiimote, Wiimote and Nunchuk, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii Classic Controller Pro. It will NOT support the Wii U Pro controller, the Wii U Gamepad or the 4 port Gamecube Adapter that plugs directly into the Wii U's USB port.

Now, what you CAN do to play with a Gamecube controller is buy a Gamecube Controller to Wii Classic Controller converter. There are only two that I know of. They are these two links:

These will make your Gamecube controller plug into the bottom of your Wiimote and make it act like a Wii Classic Controller with all the functionality of a Gamecube Controller.

u/Neversoft · 3 pointsr/wiiu

You can get GCN to Wii Remote adapters (gives you a GCN connector on the Wii Remote and even works with the Wavebird) and I think they're programmable so you can map the buttons how you like. So hopefully, a dedicated Fightstick shouldn't be necessary for those of you who prefer the GCN controller... Personally I'm shit at Smash Bros regardless of the controller :D

Here you go

u/ZombieHousefly · 3 pointsr/wiiu

>except GameCube controllers

There are adapters that convert Gamecube controllers to classic controllers though.

edit: There is a lie on that product page - it is not compatible with all games supported by the Wii U Pro Controller.

u/rageaholic55 · 3 pointsr/smashbros

You can use a Gamecube Controller. Nintendo does have a problem with not patching/updating games. I hope, now that they're finally doing DLC, that maybe they've changed their tune on that (Probably not though).

u/StNowhere · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

If you have a PS3, grab the Legacy Collection. It has MG1 & 2 (the old MSX games), MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, and Peace Walker. Also if you buy a new copy, it should come with a download code for MGS1.

From there, all you're missing is Ground Zeroes, and Phantom Pain.

u/tremens · 3 pointsr/PS3

Hey mate. I posted this over in another thread, but it's just up your alley. Also of note right now, is that Target has a 2 for $25 sale right now - Of that list I'd recommend Ico/Colossus HD, Twisted Metal, Little Big Planet, and GT5 - I'm not going to include inFAMOUS 2, solely because you can grab the Collection for around $20 if you look for it, but that's the only reason. Also, Target was doing a Buy 2 Get 1 on many titles online (and all titles in-store) but I'm not sure that's still going on.

>In the same boat. Here's the list I've compiled so far, targeting bang-for-buck and PS3/console exclusives mostly, since I already have an extensive PC collection. In no particular order:

Last of Us (this is a no brainer, buy it immediately.)

Heavy Rain

God of War Saga Collection, God of War Ascension

Uncharted Greatest Hits Dual Pack, Uncharted 3

InFAMOUS Collection

Jax and Daxter Collection

The Sly Collection

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix

ICO/Shadow if the Colussus HD Collection

Journey Collector's Edition

Final Fantasy X HD

Tales of Symphonia Chronicle's

Red Dead Redemption GOTY Edition

Capcom Essentials Collection

Little Big Planet 2 Special Edition

Two Worlds

>Everything listed here can be had for less than $30, most around $20, and many of them are 2-5 games per purchase and set you into a franchise.

>If you find Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for around $50, BUY IT. Otherwise, probably best to skip it. Tough series to jump into around 5.

>And whatever you do, get PlayStation Plus immediately. If you buy a year it works out to a few dollars per month (newegg had a year for $40 recently on eBay) and you get 2-3 PS3 games every month, AND you get Vita, PS4, and PSP games. "BUY" THESE TOO! They are free and accessible as long as you have a PS+ account once you "tag" them to your account. If you every buy a PSP, Vita, or PS4 on the cheap you will have an instant and extensive back catalog of games ready to go.

>Oh, and Uncharted 3 is currently free on PS+ but expiring soon!

EDIT: Amazon has the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection for $55 ($60 shipped) currently. I thought I had a deal on it for $45, but the reseller cancelled it after I posted it on here saying that had an "inventory error" (they showed they had numerous copies in three of their brick and mortar stores and were out of stock at one, so I find that hard to believe they didn't have at least the copy I ordered - more like they got flooded with 30-40+ orders at once and realized they were selling it pretty far below the going rate.)

u/OneRFeris · 3 pointsr/thelastofus
u/oiskaio · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

I'd recommend the Legacy Collection if you can find it for fairly cheap. It keeps going in and out of print it seems.


u/xxdofxx · 3 pointsr/patientgamers

Just to clear up any confusion (because when I went to buy these games 6 months ago I got it messed and up wasted $10.) The Legacy Collection includes The HD Collection, MGS IV, and a PSN code for MGS1 (note this ISN'T the Twin Snakes version, which is Gamecube exclusive and is much better in almost every way. So much so, that IMO you should just watch a long play on youtube instead of playing the original PS1 version.)

So if you DON'T have MGSIV and want to play/experience the whole series, absolutely get the more complete Legacy Collection. Only buy the stand alone HD Collection if you already have a copy of MGSIV and are going to watch Twin Snakes (MGS1)on youtube (which I recommend either way.)

u/KyuubiReddit · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

for Metal Gear Solid, you can start with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes on GameCube (will also play on a Wii), then get the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3 to play MGS 2, 3 and 4.

EDIT: Oh I just noticed you only have the PS3 and PS2. You'll have to get the PS1 version of MGS on the PSN.

u/Bopsybops · 3 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Lots of nanomachines and badass battle tanks. Philosophy and shit. Buy a PS3 and the Legacy Collection + Metal Gear Rising, and that's everything.

Edit: I forgot to mention Ground Zeroes. You'll need that, too.

u/gotta_ban_them_all · 3 pointsr/GameDeals

basically a PS3 and MSG Legacy Collection get you everything pre-MSGV.

If you want to play Portable Ops (technically canon but not really necessary) you can emulate it on PC with PPSSPP.

u/uvclay_ · 3 pointsr/CloneHero

If you don't have anything right now, I'd get a Wiitar and the Raphnet adapter. 360 Les Pauls (possibly any 360 GH guitar? I've heard 360 GH5 guitars are good as well but they get a lot less attention) are the best you can do wirelessly AFAIK, and the cost is basically a push given that a 360 wireless adapter and a 360 Les Paul is generally around the same price (maybe $10 more expensive) as a decent Wiitar and the Raphnet adapter. From what I understand, PS3 guitars are to be avoided.

I'd honestly just go to a thrift shop or some garage/yard sales and see what you can find and go from there. 360 guitars are still a good option even if the Raphnet adapter + Wii guitars are slightly better latency.

u/sirjimithy · 3 pointsr/Rockband

Guitar Hero 3 for PC only works with Guitar Hero guitars for some reason. It's possible to use Rock Band guitars by using a program called XPadder to map the buttons, but I've done that and it's honestly a huge pain. The best way to go is to find a wired Xplorer guitar for Xbox360 or get a Xbox360 wireless PC adapter and a wireless Guitar Hero guitar.

u/legodano · 3 pointsr/CloneHero

They will come out there. It is released world wide, there are just far more people who want them then adapters. And like i said, this this should work, I just haven't personally tested it.The game will see it as a classic controller but the game supports classic controllers. This Should work too. Its not really a gamecube controller, but should feel like one.
Or you could play the game with a great Pro controller, or gamepad. The game cube controller isn't the only way to do it.

u/doorknob60 · 2 pointsr/wiiu
u/yonkomother · 2 pointsr/smashbros

I'd consider this as well. I have one and it's great. It should do all the things you want, but with actual GC controllers.

I also know a lot of people really like this guy as well, but I've never used it. Same deal, just different brand.

u/markymawk · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

wii games do work with GC controllers, you just need a wii that has Gamecube pluggy holes. USB adapters won't work outside of Nintendont.

you can either get a new Wii, or get an adapter to plug into your Wii remote. This probably won't be allowed at tourneys but if you're playing on your own it's a cheaper option

u/Hambone321 · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

You always use this one

While not ideal I've been using it with little issue for about a year now.

u/Jaws12 · 2 pointsr/wiiu

From what I can gather, the Wii DDR game supports classic controllers. You can hook GameCube port peripherals to WiiMotes with this adapter (Warning!: These adapters only seem to work with original WiiMotes, not MotionPlus WiiMotes, so be warned!).

I own three of these adapters myself and they work quite well for using GameCube controllers as classic controllers in other games, so they might work for this as well! Good luck!

u/aunaste · 2 pointsr/nintendo

It works just fine, the tricky part is remembering to press the start button multiple times for + and - on the classic controller.

u/wuzup11 · 2 pointsr/SSBPM

Ok so this question does get asked (and answered) a lot. I know Reddit's search sucks, but given the number of other posts about this topic, I'm sure it'll come up with something.

But to answer your question: you can use a GameCube controller for PM on the Wii U, but you can't use the Nintendo adapter (or any USB adapter that plugs into the system). You have to use an adapter that plugs into a Wiimote to emulate a Classic Controller, like this one, because the Wii's operating system was never designed to take GameCube controller inputs from any USB ports, and neither was Brawl, and neither was PM.

u/Bent_00 · 2 pointsr/BrawlMinus

This adapter will let you use a GC controller, but only 1 per adapter.

It connects to a Wii Remote, and the GC controller registers as a Classic Controller.

u/SlibIsSandwich · 2 pointsr/gaming

Yeah. I believe they have them. Its the only way so far you'll get the feel of a GC controller on the WiiU. While looking for it I found this as well but personally I don't like the looks of it:

What I meant by "not natively supported" is that the Wii U doesn't support GC controllers, hence the need for an adapter.

That won't work on Wii U, as that adapter replicates a GameCube controller. GameCube controllers are only compatible with Smash 4 and certain vWii homebrew titles.

Probably should have been clearer.

"The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Edition and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition
Also includes Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions via included voucher codes"

u/SaltTheSnail · 2 pointsr/PS3

I'm planning on getting into the MGS series but I'm just waiting for this, it will be cheaper. :)

u/believingunbeliever · 2 pointsr/Games

There's actually 2 games before Metal Gear Solid itself, titled Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2.

I assume that what you're saying is you can source for the other metal gear titles individually and haven't actually bought or played them yet.

You can still find the original PC game on amazon used here

However you're in luck that the legacy edition for PS3 has been announced and is coming in July which collects the original Metal Gear up to Peacewalker Here

There's more in the series that you can find under the metal gear wikipedia article (metal gear acid, rising and some versions that came out on handheld devices)

u/VladimirZ · 2 pointsr/PS3

Or, if you want to wait a month, you can pick up the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection and have everything Metal Gear you need in one pack, including Metal Gear Solid.

u/pleasesendhelpto · 2 pointsr/Megaten

just like da-man said, grab the Legacy Collection and play the games in chronological order, that'll get you up to speed. Even if you don't have much time, the games themselves are relatively short so you can probably beat each of them in two days if you sit down and really play them. I highly recommend it, it's a great franchise, and the spin-off is great too.

u/TheFrag · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

I recommend you to start with this, if you have access to a PS3: Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

The story is a huge part of MGS and starting with 5 could be quite confusing. I suggest that you play at least MGS3 and Peacewalker first. The events from MGS Ground Zeroes and therefore MGS 5 connect directly to these two games.

If you want to play all games in the chronological order: MGS 3, MGS Peacewalker, MGS Ground Zeroes, MGS 5, Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS, MGS 2, MGS 4 (There are more games in the series, but these are the main ones. Also, I'm not saying, that this is the best way to play the games, but one possible way.)

u/philbertagain · 2 pointsr/PS3

Just order off amazon...

Then buy revengance... maybe ground demo if you i to that and wait for 5 to be cheap.

u/cavemancolton · 2 pointsr/patientgamers

While they are still available, you should really grab the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection ($23.99 USD) which includes Metal Gear 1 and 2, as well as Metal Gear Solid, MGS2 HD, MGS3 HD, MGS: Peace Walker HD, and MGS4. If you want to go digital, you could get the HD collection and you would only be losing out on MGS4, which fine since it's easily the worst Metal Gear game.

u/Crowssb · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

Don't worry we get this one every few hours.
Technically you can play all of them on ps3 but I'd recommend getting V (Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain) on ps4. The others (mg1, mg2, mgs, mgs2, mgs3, mgs4 and mpw) you can find bundled in metal gear solid legacy collection on ps3 (

And as a side note portable ops isn't necessary since it's only kinda sorta canon but you can find it in the vita store. Mg rising is an optional spinoff as well.

u/KingHenryVofEngland · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

What's the best way to play MGS 1 in 2014? I don't own an original PlayStation so it's not like I'm about to buy an old copy of that off ebay or something.

I did find this collection though it seems overpriced and isn't sold directly by amazon.

u/Blindjanitor · 2 pointsr/PS4

The Legacy Collection on PS3 comes with everything (even codes for MGS1 and VR missions on PSN) pre MGSV. Then just get GZ and TPP on PS4.

u/Sirromnad · 2 pointsr/Games
u/ehgameraz · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you have a PS3, you can pretty much play the entire series with one purchase.

Legacy Collection

This has everything except Portable Ops and MGS5.

u/Leuku · 2 pointsr/UnearthedArcana

Ah, I should've provided some explanation for the Cobra doc.

1st, none of the features are in any particular order. They don't have levels yet.

2nd, I was just trying to write down as many things as I could about the Cobras' abilities and how they might translate into 5e mechanics, so there are bound to be overlaps.

I suppose actually knowing what the Cobras can do would be the critical factor, so I highly recommend you purchase yourself a copy of MGS3 (or the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection).

MGS3 is a great place to start, because that is game that is the earliest in the chronological order of the game history, set in time prior to all the other game settings!

u/Ptylerdactyl · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

>There's not a single disclaimer on the packaging or any online listing stating that MGS1 and the VR missions were a one-time only download code.



u/TheWanderingSpirit · 2 pointsr/truegaming

Go buy this:

And get ready for some awesome gaming. Highly advise in playing the order the games were released due era of gaming each iteration came from. This helps you appreciate the games a bit more as they change control wise.

u/FaceJP24 · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

I just recently purchased the Legacy Collection for 44 dollars on Amazon with the digital graphic novels. Excellent deal.

u/mxwlln · 2 pointsr/PS4

As stated before, your best bet if you don't have a PS3 is to check if the HD collection is available for PS Now, and if you're willing to pay the price and if your connection is good, you're set.

There are two collections available for the PS3, though.

  • HD Collection: Includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS2 HD, MGS3 HD, MGS Peace Walker HD
  • Legacy Collection: Includes all the above + MGS4 + download code for MGS1 and MGS VR Missions if you buy it new + some artwork that I don't care for but a lot of people do so you might like it.

    For anyone else reading who had a similar question, my choice would be Legacy Collection since it's $43 on Amazon right now. I personally don't care for MGS4 or the Ashley Wood artbook that's included but for everything that you get, it's a good deal.

    EDIT: A word or two.
u/Rumptiddliey · 2 pointsr/metalgearsolid

You can get a used PS3 pretty cheap now and the MGS legacy collection is under $45 on Amazon

u/Sunsunrunrun · 2 pointsr/PS4

If I wanted to play the whole story from the beginning would I get the legendary edition on amazon?

u/endustry1994 · 2 pointsr/GameDealsMeta
u/gainax2k1 · 2 pointsr/gamecollecting

You can order new from Amazon for $50, re-stocking on April 12th...

Edit: as of 4/11, the listing for the next shipment has been dropped, and prices have come back up.

u/HellsHumor · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions
  1. Metal Gear Series: 3rd Person tatical espionage series where you go behind enemy lines to sabotage/defeat the enemy. The Legacy Collection is a steal for 49$ and includes 8 games (the later games reward no kill play throughs). Instead of killing choose to use tranq gun and tranq sniper rifle, the game even rewards you for completing it without killing anyone. Even more bonus if you do it unseen. (If you own a PS3 and have never played this you missing out)

  2. Batman Arkham Asylum/City: I downloaded the demo of Asylum before the game came out not expecting anything and being completely blown away by the engaging controls and excellent story. Batman does not kill enemies but rather disables them and stealth is key to survival. There is a reason people talk about this game and it has such high reviews. It is a Super Hero/Comic book game done RIGHT!

u/mewditto · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Did you try this one? it works perfectly for me

u/vgf89 · 2 pointsr/gaming

No problem, got an adapter years ago because of this issue.

If you want to pick up an adapter, it seems the official ones are being sold here:

u/srylain · 2 pointsr/GuitarHero

I'd assume that one would be just fine, I think there's a bunch of Chinese made ones that work just as well for cheaper though but this one's official Microsoft it looks like.

u/LonelyCannibal · 2 pointsr/nintendo

Do any of them have USB wireless adapters?

If not, then no.

However, you can just buy the receiver if you already have one or more 360 wireless controllers.

One receiver can connect up to 4 wireless 360 controllers.

Note: It says it won't work with Xbox One controllers.

u/WPWeasel · 2 pointsr/pcgamingtechsupport

One of these (if you don't have one already) - r/

You can find cheaper 3rd party one as well. I have both and they both seem to work well.

u/dragnu5 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Yeah you need both.

It's just the one that lets you use it on PC.

Like this

Idk if I'd buy one at that price though honestly. I just already had one lying around.

u/jamiegandolf · 2 pointsr/techsupport

You can use a Xbox controller with Windows, you just need an adapter. For Xbox 360 And for Xbox One controller

I'm wondering if perhaps you reverted a driver that shouldn't have been reverted or disabled one.

What you can try is to use System Recovery and go back to an earlier time period. You can do one that will reset everything (if you don't care about your data or have it saved on the cloud or something; this is my recommended option, if you have important data, back it up to a flash drive or cloud or something) or you can use the one that keeps your files. This one simply messes with driver updates, usually but leaves your files in tact. It might be worth a try. Try to go back before you attempted all these changes.

If that doesn't work, I suggest doing the complete restore.

u/b20vteg · 2 pointsr/Steam_Link

you'll need this. plug it into the steam link and pair your controller with it.

u/batmandan6 · 2 pointsr/nintendo

There's also the Hori fight pad. Same concept, but it looks and feels exactly like a GameCube controller (with the exception of springy shoulder triggers) and works with anything that uses a classic controller.

u/Kirby5588 · 2 pointsr/smashbros

The best controller as a makeshift Gamecube is this

I have tried it out and it works well.

Edit: I didnt know the gamecube adapter worked! I never bothered to test. But since thats a thing, just use that instead.

u/hanson933 · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Yeah I have one.

Used it to play Brawl once on my Wii U in Wii mode since the USB adapters only work with Sm4sh.

I mainly use it for VC games on Wii U now since it just makes a GC controller detect as a classic controller, I was using one of these which is pretty good but the left stick felt a little twitchy compared to the GC stick

u/andraes · 2 pointsr/wiiu

Red Mario Controller? I think that is the hori battle pad.

There are other types of these made by PDP and other 3rd parties. They plug into the bottom of wii remote to connect, so they don't have any batteries themselves. Here's a recent post/review about these types of controllers.

There's also a new ProCube controller made by hyperkin. Gamecube layout with pro controller style and wireless. Release date: Feb. 1.

u/PressXToShaun · 2 pointsr/SSBPM
u/divided_by_0 · 2 pointsr/mariokart

I've used the Gamepad, Wii Remote and Nunchuck, tilt controls, and now the Hori Battle Pad. I was really good with tilt controls on Mario Kart Wii but couldn't get into them now. Between Remote/Nunchuck and Gamepad it's really a tossup for me, but the Gamepad can be a little more comfortable/ergonomic. I'm really enjoying the Hori controller, as it is extremely similar to a Gamecube controller, just acts as a classic controller that plugs into the Wiimote.

u/LittleHelperRobot · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Non-mobile: Hori Battle Pad

^That's ^why ^I'm ^here, ^I ^don't ^judge ^you. ^PM ^/u/xl0 ^if ^I'm ^causing ^any ^trouble. ^WUT?

u/danielsahr528 · 2 pointsr/wiiu

The HORI pads are great! Not quite official gamecube controllers, but they work with lots of games!

u/qchto · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

For the GC Controllers I use an unofficial adapter for WiiU which is directly recognized by Dolphin (I have never need to change it from WiiU mode, so an official one should work too). But of course, this is PC, so as long as there is a way to recognize the input from a port, you can get it working eventually (as has been the case since time immemorial).

For the Wiimotes, a USB bluetooth 4.0 dongle is more than enough as long as you let it interface directly with the emulator through continual scanning (once synced everything works, speaker included). Also, for the sensor bar I use an old wireless baterry powered one with rechargable AAA batteries, but if I were looking for one now I'd get a USB powered one.

Oh, and btw, that same bt dongle can also support DS4 / DS3 / Ouya / generic controllers connected to it at the same time as the Wiimotes, so it's definitelly worth the $10 (I didn't include newer Xbox controllers for the simple fact I've never tried them over bluetooth, but they should work too).

u/1ock · 2 pointsr/smashbros
  • adapter (the most commonly used one)

  • controller

    alternatively you can check your local facebook marketplace or craigslist listings for cheaper controllers. max I'd pay for an indigo / black / platinum is $20, $25 if it looks brand new.
u/minizanz · 2 pointsr/wiiu

all n64 vc games on the virtual wii need the classic controller pro. you can use the official ones, hori battle pads, or the pdp ones. if you install nintendont on the vwii you can use wiiU pro controllers, ps3, or ps4 controllers or the usb game cube adapters. all of them on the wiiu require a full pro controller of any gen (so non wiimote)


you can also inject roms so long as you own one game with that emulator. so if a game is not on the wiiU but you have it you can use caffeine on the current firmware to hack any rom into virtual console.


edit- there is also this guy from mayflash that will make your gamecube controllers plug into a wiimote and work as classic controller pro , mayflash also sells this guy that is better than the nintendo smash game cube adapter

edit2- if you plan on playing online you need the lan adapter as well, there are lots of 3rd party for that as well since you only need the same chipset (ASIX AX88772)

u/Nofriendsofmine · 2 pointsr/smashbros

This is cheaper and works great it’s all you need

u/the_noodle · 2 pointsr/SSBM

> A big life philosophy of mine is rhat people are too accepting of being okay with saying incorrect things.

I responded to the statement "2 port is cheaper and has direct." When I search "mayflash 4/2 port wii u adapter", they are both listed at $15.99: 4 port, 2 port

Ususally when people say "2 port" without any further clarification, they are referring to this piece of garbage. If you find a listing for this, it probably would be cheaper, because it's obsolete. But it doesn't "have direct", because at the time there was no official Wii U adapter to copy.

u/NScyte · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Here's the adapter:

Just a heads up also, when you do the setup for it (it involves a program called zadig, it's a very simple setup) you'll want to set it to Wii U mode, even though it has a PC setting on the switch.

u/DaFees · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

While it may be slightly over your budget, I would recommend this adapter,

Works perfectly with Dolphin and should work with everything else as well. I would recommend the official adapter that Nintendo created for the Wii U but that is even more out of your budget and Amazon currently does not directly carry it.

u/gamecmdr · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Yeah Ima second the top comment here, if the melee Doc inspired you why not play melee? If you have any questions about getting into the scene feel free to ask, all it really takes is a gamecube controller and an adapter

u/terryaki510 · 2 pointsr/smashbros

I've absolutely found melee to be a much more rewarding experience than any of the other games in the series. The 3rd party online through smashladder is ironically much better than online for any of the other games. As others have said, it's cheaper and more useful to get Faster Melee and a Mayflash adapter rather than getting a gamecube. This will allow you to play online. Check out SSBM Tutorials to learn more of the basics and figure out what character to play. Good luck, I hope you end up picking up the game. I'd also be down to teach you some of the basics if you're in the US and have decent internet, just dm me if you're interested.

u/NbAlIvEr100 · 2 pointsr/SwitchPirates

I haven't put Android on my Switch, but I do have Dolphin on my Galaxy Tab S4......which Gamecube adapter do you have? I ordered one on Amazon a while back and it did not do anything, never worked. I ended up returning it and getting the MayFlash adapter which I was told worked much better-- and it did, it works perfect and my Galaxy actually recognizes it. It may work on the Switch, but I'm not sure if the Switch even recognizes any of the adapters.

u/KorovasId · 2 pointsr/SSBM

AFAIK this is the mayflash adapter you want. It supports native inputs which basically means little to no input lag. The 2 port adapters work, but they add a noticeable amount of input lag.

u/yungpuff · 2 pointsr/SSBM

If you're gonna get an adapter make sure you get the 4 port mayflash one. Others will lag.

u/mrlolz · 2 pointsr/SSBM

You should buy either the 4 port mayflash or the official wii u gamecube to usb adapter. Both of these make dolphin feel just like the gamecube in terms of controller inputs.

4 port mayflash:

Official Wii U:

I have the 4 port mayflash and it works flawlessly. A guide to setting them up in dolphin is found here:

u/_bigb · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Buy a Mayflash adapter, the Amazon page says it is supported by the Switch. I've used one on my PC and Wii U with no issue.

u/tinklefairy6 · 2 pointsr/AmazonUnder5

Where can i get a car for under $200? lolz

if your playing smash 4, you dont need a gc adapter to get started anyways. just use w/e wiiu controller you have, and if you like it enough, $18 dollars will be no big deal.

also ebay and craigslist are perfectly fine.

u/Sp00ks- · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Been using the Mayflash for a few years now, and It hasn't given me any issues at all. Highly recommend.

amazon link

u/portalsammy · 2 pointsr/SmashBrosUltimate

I'm not sure, but if there aren't you should check out the Mayflash 4 port adapter. It is known for having no input delay and works the same as the official one. I use one and can vouch for it, check it out here

u/cam1170 · 2 pointsr/emulation

I don't know much about how to get Bluetooth information from an adapter that doesn't give you that information, but if you like there are USB adapters for GameCube controllers like the Mayflash adapter ( or Nintendo's official one ( Though I don't know about the compatibility with your controller if it doesn't function exactly like a real one.

u/BATH_SALTS_MAN · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Sorry for the confusion! It's this one. Wow the price doubled from what it was yesterday when I ordered one!

u/Likesanick · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Have you considered the mayflash for pc and wiiu? its about 35 dollars and people who got it said that there's no input lag. I'd check it out.

u/TheBwarch · 2 pointsr/Brawlhalla

Mayflash adapter + newly manufactured GCN controller is a godlike combo imo.

Fairly cheap, compared to modern controller prices at least, and supported out of the box by the devs. The octagon gate on the analog stick in particular is really great for throws. (Unfortunately I feel Brawlhalla tries to use the analog triggers as digital, but I fixed that by changing my dodge button to the x button personally, ymmv)

u/personofblah · 2 pointsr/SSBM

wait are they really $55 on amazon?

Mayflashes are good too right? Link

u/Big_Poo_MaGrew · 2 pointsr/Games

I play keyboard but I've spent years playing on emulators so maybe not :p

A healthy portion of the community uses Gamecube Controllers but since the supports most controllers and the game is available for Xbone, I wouldn't be shocked if most people just used an Xbox controller.


u/pauperofthepen · 2 pointsr/SSBM

Yeah, the 4 port -

I've seen that other people play on OSX so it def should be fine. A few months ago as a test I got dolphin and melee ran fine on it, so I know the program itself is fine, just need to know about the controller. Thanks!

u/HighRi12 · 2 pointsr/gaming

I'd rather get this, and if you don't already have a controller you can buy the new Smash GC controllers.

u/sapperRichter · 2 pointsr/WiiUHacks

I ordered this one and it works great, much cheaper as well.

u/AllAboutTheKnee · 2 pointsr/SSBM

You can just grab this, and then follow instructions on smashladder (first guide here)

u/tachycardicIVu · 2 pointsr/pokemongo

It allows you to catch pokemon without opening the app. It's a bracelet with a plastic device on top with a button that links to your game.

u/TheFirstRecordKeeper · 2 pointsr/pokemongo

They are available for preorder maybe I haven't checked in a week. Amazon definitely will have them and another place I think best buy? 100% certain on the amazon though and they will be going for $34.99. Only thing you'd have to do is press the button when a pokemon shows up and press it again to have it throw the ball for him. Is he totally paralyzed or does he have some kind of function in any of his fingers? If so the watch would be an amazing investment is he's adamant about wanting to play.

it should work... this one works as well and its a little cheaper..... also for 10 USD more you get the original nintendo adapter

u/humble_squid · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/thenewstampede · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Is there any difference between a generic USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter like this and the Hori product that is made specifically for the switch?

I want to get an ethernet adapter because I'm experiencing horrific lag on Street Fighter II. I'm hoping that the adapter will clean some of that up.

u/Gomabwyn · 2 pointsr/CrazyHand

With Smash ultimate coming might as well be ready for the best online experience you can get on a switch, will be bad because nintendo but still.

u/lugi6 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you buy something like this, it'll be guaranteed to work. But if you dig around a bit, you'll likely find much cheaper ones. Also you could buy an access point an get your own little wirless Network started.

I have xfinity 150mb and my download speeds aren't nearly that bad on Switch. You can buy an ethernet adapter ( and see if that helps, but obviously this shouldn't be a problem even on wifi.

u/Phaedrus0230 · 2 pointsr/Switch

There are definitely adaptors that work, but I was under the impression they needed to be made for the switch... I'm guessing thats "proper"


It's worth noting that thing requires external power to work. A normal usb-c to hdmi adaptor for a computer can be powered by the computer.

u/Tasgall · 2 pointsr/smashbros

> Is there a good controller with the layout of a pro but the joystick of a GC?

The Wii Classic Pro controller is the best controller design ever IMO. It has GC joysticks on the bottom, a good D-pad, and the face buttons feel great.

Unfortunately, it's one of the ones that awkwardly plugs into the Wii remote. If it was a standalone like the Wii U Pro controller it would be amazing.

u/compacta_d · 2 pointsr/NintendoNX

what was said about being interpreted literally, but for the shape as well.

What I think a more realistic version of this would look like is a cell phone, in the shape of a classic controller pro, with 2 thumb pads similar to the 3ds's. I personally think it's an awesome idea.

Add these together then put the zelda pic on it.:

u/RangersCrusader · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I would argue Nintendo made an even better controller than the gamecube that gets overlooked far too often.

Wii Classic Controller Pro

u/JabbersMcGee · 2 pointsr/xboxone

No issues at all, in fact the thumbsticks are the best I've ever used on a controller. You can always look into thumbstick grips if your worried about damage or if you don't find them as comfortable

If you are buying off ebay I know a lot of day one controllers had issues with the left stick being faulty but the normal controllers are fine

u/toekneeg · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Here are replacements. Don't know how to replace them though.

Or I use these grips for my XB1. Had them since day one and my thumb sticks are still new.

u/z3r0609 · 2 pointsr/PS4 I bought these approx one month ago. Even though it says Ps3/360 they were a nice tight fight on the DS4 and they haven't slipped off once.

u/JMcLaren19 · 2 pointsr/PS4
u/MrMediaGuy · 2 pointsr/PS4

I just got a new controller sent to me by Amazon US since I bought mine through them as well. My left stick had the rubber pulling off and tearing so I called their customer service line. They just asked for the order number, then added a PS4 controller to my online cart for $0.00. All I had to do was check out and pick my shipping. It really couldn't have been any easier. They don't even make you send the busted controller back. So, buy yourself some grip-its and you basically get two controllers that work perfectly fine. I ordered these:

They fit on the PS4 sticks fine, will cover the damage on the older controller and will keep the new one from wearing and tearing until they figure out what the manufacturing issue is/was.

Check out /r/steamcontrollermods as there are a few of us who have swapped to a XBone stick with good results. It does require some sanding/fitting (grinding if you get a metal stick). My issue was the same as yours except that mine also started to wear out the stick where it hits the controller case and made it feel like there was sandpaper on it. This could have only been an issue with the first run pre-orders though since I got mine in November prior to the official release.
This is the first guy I've seen do it and I followed his instructions to do mine as well. He posts on /r/steamcontrollermods as well.

I used these sticks:

After a week of use I added these cause the dish on these were too big and too sharp of an edge for me:

The biggest difference is that under the cup the mating surface is too tall for the Steam Controller and needs to be ground down.

It's not quite plug n play but it's not too difficult if you take your time with it.

You can do a few things.

u/Eights-DPT · 2 pointsr/PS4

I'm looking at a couple on Amazon, either

GelTabz Performance Thumb Grips - PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 by InterWorks Unlimited, Inc.

Grip-iT Analog Stick Covers by Total Control

I think I've heard from a couple friends that preferred the GelTabz

u/signofthenine · 2 pointsr/PS4

They look goofy, but I've been using them for about a month, and they feel fine.

u/DjMcfilthy · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I've been using these on the sticks since the beginning. They do touch the screen when closed, but it hasn't had any negative effects after all these years. Well, outside of two frog prints on the screen.

u/Strangledclown · 2 pointsr/assassinscreed

new controllers are fine. If you want to be safe order grip its
That said, most people were not actually affected. Just keep in mind the ones who were affected were probably the ones who played their PS4 alot. Chances are, if they're on a gaming subreddit, they play their PS4 alot.

u/xyntrx · 2 pointsr/PS4

Sure. Here you go. The reviews speak for themselves but I highly recommend them.

u/thekingswitness · 2 pointsr/NHLHUT I use these. I started off with those and also bought the same brand so I could have green and orange ones on my controllers.

u/Triforce179 · 2 pointsr/SteamController

I use these for pretty much all of my controllers, including the SC. Design might look a bit ugly but it gets the job done.

u/Optimus_Prime- · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

You could try these. I've used them before.

Also, are either of your controllers from within the past year? Newer controllers don't have as many issues with the material coming off.

u/Truevalor100 · 2 pointsr/PS4

The rubber on my sticks was wearing down and since I didn't want to have to deal with replacing them I bought a pack of these. They're really easy to install and don't look that bad. They do take a little while to get used to, as they don't feel quite the same as the original joysticks, but after a little while I don't even notice them anymore.

u/frenchcheeto · 2 pointsr/PS4

I bought these after someone suggested them on this subreddit. they are pretty good for ps4 but don't fit as snug on 360.

u/HockeyCannon · 2 pointsr/PS4
u/Disney08 · 2 pointsr/PS4

I haave these on my DS4 adn they work. But my rubber never came off so not sure how or if they would stay on.

u/Jwood013 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Wired Xbox 360 controller. You can also get a wireless controller but you'll need a wireless dongle for it.

u/TheSlayer703 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Fake balls :D

And I need a freaking wired xbox controller >.>
one of these if i win e.e

edit: i didnt see i took someones idea, back to the drawing board :D

u/HumanistGeek · 2 pointsr/watch_dogs

A quick google search tells me that it's possible to use a PlayStation controller with a PC, but I don't know how well that works. I got myself a Xbox 360 controller for PC (it's an ordinary wired Xbox 360 controller with a USB adapter) so I could better play certain games on my PC, and as someone who grew up playing PS1 and PS2 along with a little PS3 I think it works excellently.

Just curious, why are you building a gaming PC if you would rather play on a console?

u/EChondo · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

This it?

You could always buy a wired Xbox 360 controller.

*Edit, Nevermind, I read the reviews. You would think they would get rid of the "Microsoft" link under the title. Well it looks like your only alternative is getting a wired controller or a knock off, sorry mate. I can't find anything official, unless you want to go find one used.

u/Skunkwourk · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

It's also on sale at newegg right now for $29.99, slightly cheaper than Amazon's $34.99 although you can get it for a little less from a 3rd party vendor.

u/BreatheLife · 2 pointsr/gaming
u/nanowerx · 2 pointsr/battlefield3

Basically a wireless 360 or PS3 controller needs some sort of wireless receiver connected to your PC to work. The wired 360 ones are plug and play, however.

Your best bet is to suck it up and get a wired 360 controller as that and the wireless receiver are pretty close in price, and you would have an extra controller.

u/Pufflekun · 2 pointsr/gaming

If you don't already have one, I recommend picking up a 360 controller for $29 on Amazon.

u/Ed-Zero · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

Just to show you guys what the controllers you're talking about actually look like:

Razer Onza: - 39.99$

Hori: - 30.00$

Microsoft xbox controller: - 30.00$

There's a couple more types of controllers but these are the main ones. Hope this helps!

u/magicpostit · 2 pointsr/gaming

I bought it back in 2006 and it played fairly well with just mouse+keyboard. Fast forward to last week, when I finally buy a wired xbox 360 controller, and it's so much better.

So, it does support controllers, and do yourself a favor (if you're on a pc) and pick up one of these:

Best PC gamepad I've ever tried, unfortunately, if you're on an Apple with the most up-to-date OS (I have a 4-year old Macbook, it's my portable SMB/Braid/Machinarium machine) finding a driver that will make it work is a pain in the ass. Tattiebogie does not work.

Also, it's cheaper to buy it on Steam and get a wired controller than any of the copies I've seen for sale for Xbox. And you now have a controller for any other platformers you may have.

u/UnworthyPie · 2 pointsr/gaming

The Wired Xbox Controllers are in my opinion the best you can get.
They're the best for any RPG or FPS. This is all coming from a bias point of view because before I was PC gaming I was an Xbox gamer.
As for the price I don't see how $30 is much of a problem. I am aware that there are various MadCatz controllers that are dirt cheap but of course you are then sacrificing quality.
However if we're talking about simulation or sport games that is not my Forté so I can't help you out too much there.

u/squidthesid · 2 pointsr/gaming

The Razer Onza and the official first party Microsoft Xbox360 wired controllers are the best ones you can go with. Nearly every game that supports a gamepad supports a 360 controller and its keys.

u/darkstar3333 · 2 pointsr/gaming

You can find them packaged at places like Amazon or BestBuy under Xbox Controller for Windows.

This is the controller + USB adapter



There are wired variations but the USB adapter lets you use 4 standard 360 controllers at the same time.

If you have a PS3 there are some 3rd party applications you can install that allows you to use that controller.

u/FoxxyRin · 2 pointsr/gaming

Just get a USB 360 controller? My boyfriend and I used a MadCatz until he finally broke it from spin-sticking way too hard. We have the official Microsoft one now, and it's super high quality feeling and stuff.

As for customization, I'm pretty sure you can map the keys however you want so long as the game you're playing allows it. If it doesn't allow it, look into software like Xpadder, which allows you to set any button as any key/key combination on your keyboard.

EDIT: Also, a LOT of controller compatible games (4/5, maybe?) have a default Xbox layout, making Xbox 360 controllers instantly compatible with the game.

u/rideoutthetide · 2 pointsr/gameswap

The one I bought. Don't bother getting the wireless PC version. Much more expensive and who sits that far away from a PC monitor anyways?

u/Shadoom01 · 2 pointsr/pcgamingtechsupport

How it goes with the xbox 360 controllers, is that there is only two ways of connecting to the PC:

1.) Directly connected with a controller with the cable built in, not any of the controllers with batteries or battery packs. The Play and Charge cable is only for charging your controller(s)' and/or playing directly connected to a xbox360. But not supported for PC play.

2.) A specific wireless dongle that will allow your wireless controllers to connect wirelessly to your computer.

The links are only to Amazon, and there will definitely be better deals to be found. Hopefully this helps out.
Good Luck, Have Fun.

u/ZodeNine · 2 pointsr/DIY

Well, my understanding is you currently can use an xbox controller, so I just wanted to toss it out there ( because it might fit your needs and is pretty cheap) that you can buy a wired xbox controller and use it for PC gaming.

Here is the support article for setup, and here are links for the controllers themselves from Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon. As I recall (a friend of mine has a similar setup for her pc gaming) you fine-tune the controls through the individual game settings.

If that wouldn't work for you, or if you think a customized keyboard would be better, I hope someone can provide some help. (The potential driver patching for such a project is probably above my own abilities)

u/ZapActions-dower · 2 pointsr/GirlGamers

If you like the Xbox controller, there are three easily solutions for you, by increasing price:

I use the middle option, as I prefer not having any more cables than necessary, plus any Xbox 360 controller can connect to the wireless dongle, meaning you can buy extra, new model controllers (not Xbox One) or use any controllers you can borrow. The Xbox One controller must remain plugged in via Micro-USB (included,) and the wired Xbox 360 controller obviously is wired. Microsoft has released drivers for all three and they should install automatically. For right now, there is no way to connect an Xbox One controller wirelessly.

For PS3, you will have to find a driver package. I used motioninjoy so I could use my PS3 controller for emulating SNES games, but it messed up other drivers and I ended up uninstalling it and using my 360 controller exclusively. Once the drivers are installed, you can use a Bluetooth dongle to connect the PS3 controller to the PC wirelessly.

A PS4 controller can also be used via Bluetooth, but requires DS4Tool which maps the buttons on the DS4 controller to their corresponding Xbox 360 buttons.

u/gelftheelf · 2 pointsr/ouya

Grab a wired (USB) Xbox 360 controller.

Or check ebay

u/SakenFor · 2 pointsr/gaming

wired xbox 360 controller
plugs into usb works like a charm

u/MalevolentDragon · 2 pointsr/gaming

It turns out that the wired 360 controller is just standard USB, and (obviously) has native drivers that work well.

u/reddit_is_cruel · 2 pointsr/gaming

On PC the same button on the same controller will start Steam in Big Screen mode.

u/sfrazer · 2 pointsr/gaming

A wired xbox 360 controller should be about $10-$15 cheaper than the Logitech you listed. It's the correct answer.

u/BrianAllred · 2 pointsr/Lubbock

Xbox 360 Wired Controller works flawlessly for everything. Bought this without even owning a 360. Other third-party (and cheaper) controller certified for the 360 should work similarly well. My buddy has a cheaper Mad Catz one that works. It just uses a different driver, but Windows 7 should be able to find it automatically. Only hassle is having to separately set up the controller profiles for different games/emulators.

u/I_WANT_PRIVACY · 2 pointsr/gaming

You can just buy a wired Xbox 360 controller from Microsoft.

u/malic3 · 2 pointsr/battlefield3

EGAD!!!, no, logitech just cant get controllers right, id get a regular wired 360 controller for computer/xbox

u/fm87 · 2 pointsr/Games


You can get one off Newegg or Amazon for around that cheap. Both wired and wireless are around the same price, and they go on sale quite often. I bought one not long ago for $18.99 off Newegg.

u/MrFluffyThing · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

I know it's not the same for those who prefer the PS3 controller, but the Xbox 360 controller is plug-and-play with Windows 7/8, and is generally cheaper(Goes on sale a LOT) if you don't already own one.

u/DiabolicallyRandom · 2 pointsr/Borderlands

Correction: It is not a bluetooth device. There are USB adapters, however, to connect wireless 360 controllers to a PC. At retail, they are only available packaged with a controller - however, they can be found on EBay without the included controller. You can also sometimes find on amazon just the receiver.

I just picked up a set on amazon earlier this week for 39.99 on sale, complete with controller. Newegg also had a deal yesterday for the same.

The package you would look for is here:

Or, just the adapter:

Otherwise, you can just use a "wired" 360 controller, here:

Finally, note that a "play and charge" cable does not allow you to connect to the PC. it must be a real, native, wired controller, or you must have the windows wireless adapter.

As for keyboard try this and since you're using Big Picture Mode use an Xbox Controller

u/Amatsuo · 2 pointsr/xboxone

Yeah that is what I am hoping to stay away from. If I cant find a good XBOne controller, then I might just have to break open the wallet for This along with a Chronos stick.

u/Craquehead · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

> I've seen several games where it's as simple as clicking on "use xbox 360 controller", so I thought I would just do that.

Not only do many games support it "out of the box", requiring no setup or re-mapping, they will often change the UI for you, showing button prompts correctly with the icons for the 360 controls. This is why I normally recommend the 360 controller over the PS3 controller.

360 controller also works natively with Steam's big picture mode.

That said, don't get a off brand. they're terrible. I guess you could save a couple bucks and get one used, but, eww. The real deal is 34$ on Amazon right now.

u/Artcankill · 2 pointsr/vita

I bought the PS one. Fits it just fine.


As long as the handles aren't bigger then grips , you should be fine.

u/daigoro06 · 2 pointsr/vita

hey thanks! yes they are super comfy. these are the ones i have

u/Matriss · 2 pointsr/vita

FWIW I play my Vita way more often since I got these. The Vita by itself makes my hands cramp up because of awkward finger placements and the handles help so much.

But also yes, PS+ is pretty rad and even if you decide to get rid of your Vita you'll still get the games for PS3.

u/cilvyenn · 2 pointsr/PS4

I play Battlefield 4 remote play and this has helped me personally. PDP PSVita Trigger Grips by PDP

u/clee290 · 2 pointsr/vita

There's the Nyko Power Grip which has an external battery to "double" the Vita's battery life.

There is also the PDP Trigger Grip which uses triggers to push your Vita's shoulder buttons.

There are also a variety of plain grips which don't really add any functionality other than the grip.

As for case that can fit a Vita with a grip, I've heard of people using iPad Mini cases, such as this. Also this case on Amazon has been recommended. Here is a picture: click.

u/MzTredecim · 2 pointsr/vita

I have both the Nyko Power Grip and the PDP Trigger Grip and I really like them both. I've found the Nyko is just a little more comfortable for me and I love the extra battery life but having the extended triggers on the PDP grip is useful at times. Either grip is definitely better than no grip. I'm a girl but 6ft and apparently my hands are just too large to play without them.

EDIT: The Nyko Power grip can be picked up in the wild for cheaper than that amazon link. I just put it up for reference. If you don't care about the extra battery life also check out the CTA Grip.

u/DronesWorkHard · 2 pointsr/vita

Wish i would have seen this a week ago
I bought the trigger grips, the nyko power grips and the nyko clones (no power) i think ct or something.

I threw the trigger grips in the trash (only paid $6 for them)

The nyko battery died but its by far the most comfortable. good luck

p.s. the triggers on the pdp suck and are not an improvement over the regular vita triggers imho. I play a lot of destiny. YMMV with other games

u/sweetcuppingcakes · 2 pointsr/vita

I went through this same dilemma recently, and ended up with two different grips.

First I bought the PDP because it seemed to be the most "dual shock" like. It's pretty expensive, so I bought one used off eBay. It came smelling like cigarettes, but after leaving it in a bowl of warm dishsoap for an hour it was good as new. However, the shoulder triggers are terrible. Very spongey and they are prone to getting stuck at times. Plus they make an awful squeaky crunching sound that made it hard to play at night without waking up my SO. A lot of other people had this problem online, so I tried a few different solutions I found. I took out the top screws to make the case looser, which didn't make much of a difference. Later I used some WD-40 on the triggers which made a tiny difference, but not enough.

I decided I was done with the stupid thing and about a week ago I ordered the Dreamgear Comfort Grip off Amazon. It doesn't feel as much like a dual shock, but it is waaaay better than the stupid overpriced PDP in every other aspect. Going from the PDP to the Dreamgear was like taking gloves made of cement off my hands. I recommend the DG 100%.

u/diversionmary · 2 pointsr/vita

So far I bought:

PDP trigger grips

An adapter so I can char be via any USB charger

Sony screen protective film

Kinda ridiculous that they purposely disabled the ability to charge via any USB charger.

u/cjkeats · 2 pointsr/vita

I find it is a little. I got the Trigger Grip and for games where you use the sticks more it's okay, but the grip part isn't as long as I'd like it to be.

u/Rezatron · 2 pointsr/spelunky

You echo my impressions. The slow down is similar (but not as bad) to what happens on my 2009 Macbook Pro. This was fixed on PC by being able to disable full screen effects. Still it's disappointing to see it on Vita and with no options to turn off full screen effects here. One might even argue that ghosting is easier with the slight lag. However the "dead are restless" levels are much worse and the "wet fur" levels have this issue as well.

Regarding point #3, you can buy external attachments for the Vita. This model which I use has PS3/360 style triggers and makes prolonged gaming periods tolerable. Something like this will be even better although it's missing the faux triggers of the first model.

u/Syvandrius · 2 pointsr/vita

I'm glad I could be of help! I love my Vita and I couldn't be happier to help someone else decide if they want one of their own.

FPS have been really hit or miss depending on your play style. For instance the Black ops declassified campaign was really poor. It was basically a bunch of time trials strung together. However I had a really good time with the horde mode the game offers and drop back in to it every now and again when I have a few minutes to spare.

I've been hearing really good things about Killzone mercenary so much so in fact that I'm starting to believe that this game could end up being a heavy system seller.

Here's a gameplay trailer

For the record I also enjoy the single player campaign to these games, they come off as corny action movies. Which is the best thing ever.

Can you elaborate on the rear touchpad? What is it made for? Will it get in the way of me trying to play the games I've purchased?

The rear touch pad adds a significant amount of interaction to many Vita titles. For instance Little big planet Vita allows you to interact with some objects in the environment in different ways. It also functions as the L-2 and R-2 buttons for PS2 titles. Many games don't bother with it's use what so ever however, so it's kind of hit or miss.

The difficulty you'll have with it really depends on the size of your hands, as a giant handed monstrosity I have some issues with it personally. Getting some grips for your Vita well help out quite a bit if you're a fellow monstrosity.

These trigger grips help a bunch

Lastly, I'm guessing that I can DL games from PS+ while I'm on my home wifi. Is that correct, or is there a specific cable that I need to DL games from PS+ directly to the Vita?

You can indeed download games via wifi quite easily with the Vita, while also being able to transfer them to either cloud storage or your PC to save space when not playing them. Additionally the the AC adapter doubles as a USB cord to plug the system into your PC for easy transfers and whatnot. It's good stuff.

I hope this helped! And don't worry about asking questions, we're a pretty helpful community overall! :D

*Edit: So many typos -_-

u/_deffer_ · 2 pointsr/gameswap

Here is the grip I have.

u/Darkenedsilence · 2 pointsr/playstation

If I'm at home it has very low latency which is good, even the aiming is somewhat accurate (better then I'd expect). Because my hands are leaner than I'd say yours (according to your disclaimer ) its not too bad, no where near as good as the ds4, also the controls are mapped as l2 and r2 are the left and right of the back touchpad and l3 and r3 are the two bottoms corners so it makes it somewhat easier to handle then say having all the buttons mapped to the back (example being battlefield 4) all in all its great for bed side gaming I'd say, also there are grips like these that make it easier to hold

u/nerdism · 2 pointsr/vita

you can still find it on amazon:

u/GJBM · 2 pointsr/vita

I really like the PDP Grips. You might be able to find them cheaper on eBay or elsewhere. Lately, I've considered upgrading to the Nyko Power Grip though. They seem bulky, but I've heard they're great.

u/Sawdust_Prophet · 2 pointsr/nintendo

I used these. Takes away a little authenticity, but they feel fantastic and will probably age better. They're also very easy to swap in.

u/BabushkaSlayer · 2 pointsr/smashbros

I'd go with this if they are tourney legal. Not sure on it, but my friend bought 4 of these and 4 used original controllers and they are the best I've ever used.

u/Viscerae · 2 pointsr/gaming

It's actually one of those cheap N64 replacement sticks you can find all over Ebay and Amazon.

Emphasis on "cheap". They look and feel nice, but the pots conversion is total trash and you get some hefty input lag.

But programming your own chip is a great alternative that will work perfectly. Gonna cost you quite a bit more than 10 cents though, that's for sure.

u/ThebossII · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

A replacement stick is usually the best way, not sure if you can get replacements. Another method i found kinda skimmed through it but it sounds like he cleans it up and uses a piece of tape to tighten up the stick again ( Ah i did find replacement sticks. So full out replacement would be your best bet. (

u/mostoriginalusername · 2 pointsr/gaming

Hey, psst. You NEED these.

Only takes about 10 minutes to replace and you only need a screwdriver. I've got 4 of them, work amazing.

u/gr8ful123 · 2 pointsr/n64

Want an N64 classic? Make it a Slimmer model like what this guy did

Region Free? Get one like this or 3D Print it.

Want some wireless controllers? Try something like this or there's this option

Oh no! Analog stick is not too good on the OG controllers? replace it/Enkko , Replace it/ SteelSticks or use the GC Stick Method

Want HDMI / RGB Output? Do it yourself/ get an electronics person to help you

Want some fancy aesthetics for the console/ Controllers? Look no further!, LED Controller mod

Game list isn't what you wanted? oh no, you can't play Romhacks/ unreleased games? Get an Everdrive/ ED64

In total, besides the current price for the Steel Sticks and possibly the ED64 (depending on if you work or not/ have extra income), an N64 Classic Edition with all of those things, wouldn't be too far off budget.

u/Quatroking · 2 pointsr/gaming

You can just buy a redesigned module from, for example, amazon and use it to replace the controller's existing stick. It's plug & play so you only need a philips screwdriver.

u/Maxrdt · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Honestly I'm a much bigger fan of these that I just got from amazon instead. I don't really trust a $20 controller, and for that price you can pick up two of these. Installation was easy and it's just like playing on a classic N64 controller, but better.

u/remembertosmilebot · 2 pointsr/smashbros

Did you know Amazon will donate a portion of every purchase if you shop by going to instead? Over $50,000,000 has been raised for charity - all you need to do is change the URL!

Redesigned REPLACEMENT Joystick for Nintendo 64 Controller Repair N64 Thumbstick Pad

Not actually an adapter. A replacement joaystick for your OG N64 controller.

u/SturgeonMcGuai · 2 pointsr/n64

I recommend a Sony Trinitron if you get a CRT. These sets are the most well-built among tube TVs, which matters a lot when you're looking for a 10-30 year old appliance. Sony also held a patent on the best CRT technology for almost the entire time CRT sets were relevant, so Trinitrons have objectively better picture quality than any competing sets of the day. Make sure you get the remote with the TV in case you need to adjust the picture. 20"-25" is a good size for a multiplayer gaming TV in the corner, but you might want an extra set of hands to help you move anything larger than 24" depending on how far you'll have to carry it.

Also, for $20-$25 online, you can get an S-Video cable for the N64. S-video is a much clearer video signal than the standard yellow-RCA-jack composite video, which is itself just compressed S-video. Here is a comparison between the two. If you decide to get one of these I cannot recommend ANY generic cables since they're almost always terribly cheap and it's a matter of luck whether they will work, so get a Nintendo-brand cable for either composite or S-video.

You can also get replacement N64 joysticks online, (like here or here) some of them arguably superior to the originals. A lot of those Mario Party minigames will kill N64 joysticks, especially OG sticks, which need to be re-lubricated (I recommend white lithium grease) after twenty years of use. There are also plenty of kooky, unorthodox third-party controllers for the N64 which, by virtue of their design, add some challenge to games you thought you were good at.

Sorry for the wall of text, there's just a lot of technical stuff that goes a long way in improving the retro gaming experience, and most of the high-end and cutting-edge stuff of yesterday is obscure knowledge now. S-Video will give you the biggest bang for your buck, and combining that with a compatible Trinitron will get you ~90% of what hundreds of dollars of equipment can do. And that means more games. =)

u/Dycus · 2 pointsr/arduino

I have actually done this exact project before, even with NRF24L01+ modules.

Here's a few resources you'll want:

This site used to have a ton of good information, but now it's down. That's where I got my info, but the stuff I gave you above should be enough.

In my controller I had:

  • A bare ATmega328p
  • A replacement N64 joystick, gutted, so I was only using the analog joystick
  • 400mAh li-ion battery with a 2.5v regulator to power both the ATmega and the NRF24L01+

    I took the chip out of the N64 controller and wired all the buttons and the joystick to the ATmega. For power savings, the positive line for the joystick was hooked up to a GPIO pin so I could switch it off. Every 5ms the controller wakes up, reads the buttons and joystick state, transmits it, then goes to sleep again. With some other optimizations, I got the controller to draw less than 1mA while using it. :)

    On the receiver side I had a custom board with an STM32 microcontroller, but you can do it with a Teensy 3. No voltage regulator needed, the N64 uses 3.3V for the controllers.
    I recommend using something faster than 16MHz because while you can make it work, you'll need to do a bit of assembly and it's a bit more fiddly. Use a Teensy 3.0 at 72MHz and you'll have much more headroom.

    You need to use the links I gave you to re-implement the N64 controller protocol in the Teensy. Every time the N64 requests controller data, just give it the latest info you received from the controller.

    I'm not sure how much you know so this might all sound like a bit much! I'll be happy to try to help you but this sort of project will be very difficult if you don't have decent coding skills.

In addition, I'd recommend something like this. Stock N64 analog sticks wear kind of quickly.

Amazon sells the Mayflash version, it just reads the GC as a Classic Controller:

Not an 'official' product but you definitely don't need to mod a controller.

u/ss4444gogeta · 2 pointsr/wiiu

I've heard people have had success with this one.

u/erwan · 2 pointsr/nintendo

If you don't want to get a classic controller, you can get this:

But it may be better to wait for the official Gamecube controller adapter that will be released for Super Smash Bros.

u/Spockrocket · 2 pointsr/wiiu

They also work if you buy an adapter to have them recognized as Classic controllers, e.g. this

u/yankees27th · 2 pointsr/wiiu

This adapter says it works for both Wii and Wii U. So I can use gamecube controllers to play both Brawl and Smash 4? Buy two of these and two gcn controllers and I'm good to go for multiplayer?

u/I_Got_2_Pickles · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

A Steam Controller is $50 but can get to $35 during Steam sales. If you don't want that though you can get an Xbox 360 controller and adapter on Amazon for a little over $45 not including tax and shipping. I don't know about input lag though since I don't own a Steam Link.

u/TimmyP7 · 2 pointsr/CloneHero

Clone Hero is guitar-only at the moment. Your best areas are going to be thrift stores like Goodwill, Savers, and the likes, as those are hella cheap there. From there try things like Facebook Marketplace, LetGo, and OfferUp. Ebay is a last resort as it will usually be a bit more pricey there.

USB is a weird thing when it comes to these guitars. For being straight-forward you can go with either an Xplorer or a Rock Band 1 Stratocaster, as both can be wired. Get a breakaway if they don't come with one, then it's plug and play. Next up would be wireless Xbox 360 guitars, like a Les Paul or a GH5 guitar, but you'll need a wireless adapter like this. It's a little pricey, so make sure you have a working guitar before you go this route. Then there's the Wii guitars with the Raphnet adapter, but that's a little overkill for just getting into the game.

I know I just said CH is guitar-only, but if you want to do drums later on (or now with Phase Shift) Xbox wired/wireless drums function the same way, and for some reason PS3 drums are wired USB and are plug-and-play, so there's that to keep in mind as well.

Good luck!

u/HarryPotterRevisited · 2 pointsr/CloneHero

Also check craigslist. Can't really go wrong with any of the guitar hero guitars expect live if you want to play the standard 5-note charts. Xplorers and les pauls are generally well liked. Xplorer is the only one thats plug and play, others need this as they are wireless.

u/esmith213 · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

For generic gaming needs I would recommend one of the following priced lowest to highest:

  1. 4 GameSir G3s Controllers (each comes with a 2.4GHz USB Dongle (recommended) & Bluetooth 4.0 (will lag)). $31/ea from amazon - $124 total LINK

  2. 4 Xbox 360 Wireless controllers & 1 Wireless USB Adapter (Controllers $44/ea - USB Adapter $14 - $190 total)
    USB Adapter

  3. 4 PS3 Controllers & (optional) USB Bluetooth Adapter(controllers ~$45/ea - USB BT adapter $13 - ~$193 total)

    Obviously there is an advantage to be had if you already own some controllers under one of the suggestions, but aside from that it's personal choice. As a side note, if you get a Pi3 or Pi0w you won't NEED the $13 bluetooth adapter listed for option #3 but it's highly recommended since using the built-in bluetooth seem to have more inherent lag than a USB adapter. It's also worth mentioning that options #1 & #2 will likely have less lag than option #3 even with the $13 adapter since the wireless dongles for options #1 & #2 don't require the Pi to do any of the work in receiving any of the wireless signals and the manufacturers of #1 & #2 claim their wireless dongles are 100% lag free. The Pi will see #1 & #2 as if they are wired USB controllers.

    This is not an exhaustive list by any means - just a recommended one. For example, you can use $10 knock off PS3 controllers as well but you need them all to be a specific/identical type and you have to mess with drivers to get them to work right. Also, ANY controller that comes with a USB wireless dongle will work, but quality, number of buttons, response of analog sticks, battery life, etc will vary greatly from product to product.

    Hope this info helps!
u/bejoe905 · 2 pointsr/GuitarHero

> the Xbox 360 guitars work natively

As long as you have the Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver.

The 360 GH:L controller works as well, when you force it to use the Xbox 360 controller drivers.

Actually that one it's from microsoft,I bought that one, works perfectly. I bought it in bulk tho, even cheaper, like 14 dollars.

Edit: Actually the one that I bought was this one, from Amazon Warehouse Deals, Seems like is no longer $14

u/Maiq_Knows_Much · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you guys already own a few wireless controllers, or this expires, here is a wireless adapter for Xbox360 controllers.

Easier for media PCs far away from the couch, & Prime Eligible. I believe it supports up to 4 connections, but I haven't tried.

u/Shabbypenguin · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I like my PS4 gold wireless headset, works wirelessly on my pc, or i can turn it off and connect it using a 4 pole 3.5mm cable (it comes with one) to a stereo headset adapter and it works fine.

i like it over teh hyperx clouds because its wireless to ps3/ps4/pc

u/AshiusX · 2 pointsr/DestinyTheGame

There is a 20 percent sale off in Amazon. I order one a day or two day ago, I can't wait to use it.

u/McChicken6677 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Multiplayer is not splitscreen, everyone plays on the same screen. I am playing through the game with my girl friend and its great, I prefer it over the PC version personally.

I have this headset and love it

u/Ahobo1 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Can't answer your question about Diablo as I have not played it.

Most games are downloadable, but I loved Second Son and First Light. SS lacks replay value, but I enjoyed playing it through twice, once good and once evil. First Light is short, but has massive replay value and the battle arenas are serious fun.

You aren't going to find a better headset in the price range than the PS Gold Wireless. I have one and it's better than a $200 pair of Tritons I owned on PS3.

EDIT: added link

u/DRmann13 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Just picked up the gold headset for like 50 bucks. PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Jet Black

u/ps4hero · 2 pointsr/PS4
u/batt439 · 2 pointsr/playstation
This is the headset i have. Its wireless and i have people come in my room and my friends can't hear anything and its cheap. Hope it helps.

u/nizzy2k11 · 2 pointsr/playstation

PS gold or HyperX Cloud was $60 this weekend. i would get the cloud, much more versatile if its wired but i don't mind the wires since i keep my original PS headset plugged almost 24/7.

EDIT: the wired will also get rid of any wireless interference your current headset has and future headset might have as well.

u/Jasonp359 · 2 pointsr/PS4

Playstation Gold Headset

I got it back on Cyber Monday last year and use it almost everyday. Mostly on my PC (wearing them now). It uses a usb adapter so there is no annoying bluetooth to worry about. I have not used on my xbox one yet as I almost never play on that thing anymore, but it works with PC and PS4 with usb and then has a headphone jack and comes with an auxiliary cord to plug into your phone. Also has a built in microphone.

I HIGHLY recommend this headset. Just finished playing Hellblade on the PC using this headset and it was amazing. The virtual surround sound is perfect. Can't get much better than this one.

u/barduke · 2 pointsr/PS4


ive been looking into the apple earbuds issue for a while...

most people say it has do to with the way the wires inside are soldered to the jack. i went to the point to getting a brand new TRRS jack and soldering it, switching the ground and mic at the pole and sleeve. result, i can hear great through the headphones, mic will still work with the iphone (buttons no longer work), no annoying buzz, but other users can not hear me through the ps4 on either controller i use (which REALLY disappointed me after all the time i invested researching and waiting for parts).

as for the beats, interesting here also. i bought a digicam ds4 controller and my beats studio work great when wired to the controller through the 3.5mm jack. however, if i use the black controller that came with the console (SW:BF bundle, bought Nov 2015), the beats mic does not work. ive read that this is due to a hardware/software change that Sony came out with a while back.

i found the mic that came with the console is uncomfortable for long term use, but i like the mute switch. currently im using some old $7 generic off brand earbuds that are super comfy, but they are really bass-y and its difficult to hear voices clearly.


i have many friends that use the [url=]PS4 Gold Headset[/url] and they seem to like it a lot

apple switches the ground and mic on their headphones. older DS4 might work with Beats.

u/folettary · 2 pointsr/PS4

If you are willing to spend a little more (and I would argue it is worth it), then go w/ the Playstation Gold headset:

Also, do you already have a nice pair of headphones for listening to music/movies/etc? If you do, you can buy a mic attachment. By far the cheapest option.

I would recommend the Playstation Gold headset though because it is wireless, and the sound quality is better than anything you will see in its price range.

u/reddit455 · 2 pointsr/gaming

couple friends and I have the Sony PS4 headset.. no complaints.
sounds pretty good considering there's no boom mic. you can just plug the dongle into a computer and it works there too. comes with a standard cable so you can use them with anything else too.

u/SoBeDragon0 · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Completely agree with you on the FPS issues on most rigs.

I'm glad it's OK for you, but others have echoed the same issues on the volume levels of certain things. Not sure what kind of headset you use, but the only one I have access to (this one) sounds great, but the mix is awful. The majority of the game sounds fine, I expect gunshots to be loud, I can hear footsteps just fine, etc. The plane, the air when jumping, the rain, and the buggy sound deafening. It HURTS my ears when those sounds play...that's why I whine about it. If it just sounded bad, whatever, but I should not have a ringing in my ears because of these sounds. I don't want tinnitus.

u/miscmouse · 2 pointsr/gadgets

I'm a fan of these PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset - Jet Black by Sony Computer Entertainment

u/moethelawn · 2 pointsr/PS4

Careful! I had to RMA my Gold Wireless Headset last week and I've just received a new pair from Sony under warranty. (First rep I talked to said the service center wouldn't cover physical damage so they wouldn't do anything, but the second rep I talked to RMA'd it no problem) The hinges are plastic and can crack and break. I used mine almost every day with care for 4 months and they still managed to break. Other people had similar issues (via poor reviews and the Official Playstation Forums). I was able to get it replaced under warranty, but I have a bad feeling they will eventually break again. The mic isn't the greatest either, so I'd honestly recommend looking somewhere else. It's too bad because the sound is amazing for the price.

u/hisagishi · 2 pointsr/gaming

> Dolphinbar

That is what I meant yes. I am unsure if mayflash makes any other sensorbars but to specific this is the one I mean:

u/bubar_babbler · 2 pointsr/SteamController

I tried this, but since I had a newer Wiimote I would have to install the Toshiba bluetooth stack and it was just too sketchy. Dolphin bar will work fine for this, though it is still a little hacky.
Amazon link:

u/DerpStation · 2 pointsr/cemu

I use a Dolphinbar, works without any config on mode 4. You can find them here.

u/JacobTheButtonMasher · 2 pointsr/DolphinEmulator

Generic Bluetooth dongles are kinda terrible compared to the dolphin bar. You should consider it even if your setup works. The Bluetooth seems to be the most stable

u/LavosYT · 2 pointsr/gaming

you could try this, I've got one that works great (if you don't have bluetooth)

u/HydrogenxPi · 2 pointsr/oculus

I had this problem too. It's odd, but what worked for me was putting on the headset first so that you were in the steam environment and then peeking out to the screen and hitting the run button. Honestly though, I found the touch implementation lacking. You have to point the touch controller down rather than at the screen for the pointer to work and the pointer was very jittery. I just ordered one of these and am looking forward to it arriving.

u/SundownKid · 2 pointsr/ShouldIbuythisgame

You need a Sensor Bar for the Wiimote to work. You also need a bluetooth adapter, although there is one called the DolphinBar that has one built in.

u/Yonrak · 2 pointsr/emulation

Looks great! As for success level of other devices, Dolphin Bar does the same thing and works really well in my experience, but could be cool if you could get the size down - though I'm not sure how small it can go whilst keeping the IR pointer functionality?

Edit: Looks like I may have missed the point. What benefit would native passthrough bring?

u/BaGamman · 2 pointsr/CrackWatch

A Dolphin ToolBar :

This thing can take on precisely the inputs of a Wiimote, Wii motion+ and Nunchuck for Dophin Emulator and other applications.

Before I was rather desapointed that Dolphin couldn't precisely take in Wiimote inputs via Bluetooth dungles, so I decided to check a bit if there was another solution and it turn out this one works really well.

It cost $20 but it's quality.

u/Net_Bastard · 2 pointsr/SRSGaming

Mayflash just came out with the DolphinBar. It's a USB sensor bar with built-in bluetooth, and it was actually made with assistance from the Dolphin developers.

u/EllipsisBreak · 2 pointsr/nintendo

Dolphinbar is made for this purpose.

u/michaelthefurrycat · 2 pointsr/SomeOrdinaryGmrs

I'm playing resident evil 4 on the Samsung S9

And to my surprise it runs really well 😀 I'm at the part I got the eye too open up the door to the next area!

And I'm really happy!

Hey, um, mudahar if you're reading this can you do a wii sport on android?!?!

Because I have wii sport running on the exact same phone to run resident evil 4!

But it says that I need dolfin sensor bar for this too work so can you make a video about that please here is the link for the dolfin sensor bar!

u/DolphinUser · 2 pointsr/emulators

Yes you don't need any additional Bluetooth dongles to use it. I'm not sure if they sell them from their own site but you can get one on Amazon.

u/Jespy · 2 pointsr/pcgaming

Wireless sensor bars are cheap, what exactly is expensive to you? A regular USB one is about $10 and I got my wireless one for $20

u/Thanatos- · 2 pointsr/zelda

You will need Motion+ to play the game so you will need an adapter or even better a Wiimote with Motion+ built in, you will also need a nunchuck. Most importantly you will need Bluetooth to connect to the controller, and a sensor bar. I recommend the Mayflash DolphinBar it combines both bluetooth and a sensor bar in one and it lets you effortlessly connect your wiimotes to your computer. I always had issues using regular bluetooth with it disconnecting, having the wrong software, etc, but with the DolphinBar ive never had an issue after roughly 20-30 hours playtime.

u/KVLTSmash · 2 pointsr/ssbb
u/lostmau5 · 2 pointsr/zelda

If you can afford it, get the MayFlash Dolphin.

It comes with a disk containing appropriate drivers, and is less of an overall headache.

u/thewallsbledlust · 2 pointsr/amiibo

If you have homebrew on your wii (or are comfortable modding it in order to do so) and a fairly good gaming pc, you can make this game go from great to masterpiece. Using cleanrip, rip a copy of the game onto a usb drive, and play it with the latest developer version of Dolphin emulator.

You can buy a Dolphin Bar from Mayflash on amazon for $17 to use original wii controllers, or map controls in Dolphin for a regular gamepad (use classic controller setup).

There is an HD texture pack for Xenoblade that makes the visuals in this game absolutely amazing. If you are at all capable, this is the way to play the game.
