I am interested in buying a wireless controller for my Game Cube. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with Nintendo's Wavebird or Pelican's G3 Wireless controllers?

I have heard great things about both controllers.

I do have a few questions...Is it true that the Wavebird lacks the force-feedback/rumble feature? Does the G3 Wireless really perform just as well as the Wavebird and how does the force-feedback/rumble feature effect battery life (Wavebird boasts up to 100 hours of gameplay on just 2 AA batteries, how long should I expect the G3 Wireless to last?)...

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you are looking for an awsome controller I would go with the Nintendo Wavebird because nothing beats it. I have not tried the g3 controller but the forcefeedback is really not needed on the wavebird because the comfort and how lite the wavebird makes up for it. ANd the distance my goodness cant beat the distance the wavebird can shoot. I would go with the wavebird because i have had a few aftermarket controllers and they all suck. The ones that i am still using are the good ol' nintendo controllers.

the wavebird is awesome, simply awesome

plusses: $30 bucks for a wireless (xbox and ps2 regular controllers are 30 bucks) lonnnnnng range (longer than you would mostly ever need) lightweight no messy cord in the way comfortable

minuses: no force feedback/rumble

thats all there is the plusses out weight the minuses by 400% :D

the forceback is the stupidest thing to ever happen to a controller. I meen did we really need the rumble pack with the 64 i think not. their was never a good point to it. I meen gaming does not need rumbler, and it doesnt put you further into the game. If anything its annoying. so if anything i dont think of it as a minuse. I think of it as a plus :dance: no forceback yea!!!

I ended up buying a Pelican G3 Wireless while I was at Best Buy the other day. They had the Wavebird on sale for $29.99 and I was all set to buy it, when I noticed the G3 Wireless on the rack just below. It had some stickers on the front of the package from various on-line Game magazines praising the G3 wireless saying it was every bit as good as the Wavebird, etc., etc.

Anyways to make a long story short - it has got to be the greatest thing I have ever bought. BTW - The G3 Wireless was $24.99.

well alright i guess its ok that you got that controller. In my opinion it is a bad decision...I have had so many problems with non 1st party controllers..but if it workes for you than great.
