Make your own wireless NES/SNES controller for the Wii


7:47 AM on 02.21.2007



I've never been a fan of the Wii Classic Controller, despite the fact that I own three of them for some reason. Sure, it has a clever, solid design that mimics some of the best controllers in console gaming history; but you have to admit, it lacks a certain charm held by the originals.

I'm also pretty annoyed by the fact that it's tethered to the Wii remote. I mean, if it's going to be attached to anything at all, can we please not drain my precious AA batteries? Thanks.

So it's a good thing people are smarter than I am. Some clever folk decided to crack open their favorite control pads and not only make them work with the Wii, but also make them completely wireless. They even detail the scary, step-by-step procedure on how to make your own, with detailed schematics of alien things like transmitters and receivers.

In fact, it looks so complicated, it almost makes me want to go out and buy another Classic Controller just to rid my head of all of the noise. But if you're reading this and think you're up to the task, I'd be more than happy to accept one (or four) as a gift.

These PlayStation demakes transport you to a simpler time

It's never been all about the graphics for me. I can appreciate slick environments and the ability to watch sweat roll down my rugged protagonist's brow. But truth be told, I've always had a thing for PlayStation-era graphics...more
