SNES/NES Controller Wii Mod

I don’t do this whole Nintendo Wii thing, but I know that if I downloaded some games on the Virtual Console, I’d want to use an actual SNES or NES controller to truly add to the retro-gaming experience. Looks like modder Raphael had the same idea in mind, because he hacked an SNES controller into a USB circuit to hook up to his Wii. If you think it’s as easy as plugging in some adaptors and rocking and rolling, think again. The project is totally doable, but it’s a bit of a pain.

You could of course just buy an SNES to USB adaptor, download SNES9x and some ROMs, and play to your heart’s content for free. But that would make sense. Your call, Tiger.
