  • Wii controllers...how many? Which one's?

    So...a Wii is going under the tree for Christmas this year. Kid's are currently running a Gamecube with 4 controllers (three kids+ me or the wife).

    My question is...with the sports games that come with the standard package, plus say Mario Party 8 (the one "extra" game we'll probably get them), how many controllers do I really need, and which one's?

    My plan right now is to buy three extra Wiimotes, but hold off on getting extra Nunchuk's. Besides what I've read on the boxing game, do any of the other sports games or MP8 require all players to have their own nunchuk controller?

    I'd say get an extra nunchuck controller so you have two. So far I have not seen any games where more than 2 controllers + nunchucks have been required.

    Not entirely sure about MP8 and it's requirements though.

    EDIT: Just looked up info on MP8...looks like if you're playing with 4 players you will need 4 nunchucks.

      Lots of games require a wiimote and nunchuk for each player. I'd make sure I had 4 wiimotes and 4 nunchuks for max fun. If you've got Gamecube controllers, don't bother with the Wii Classic controllers.

        At some point you'll want to play 4-player Wii Tennis. It'll be worth getting the extra controllers for that.

        - It's who you game with.

          MP8 only NEEDS nunchuks for some of the extra stuff. The core game (and every flavor thereof) only needs the remote.

          I've found 2 nunchuks are good enough for just about everything, but I often wish I had a fourth remote.

            Have you bought WiiPlay yet? It's either a game with a free remote, or a remote with a free game. Either way, it's well worth the money.

                It's a remote with a free game. Wii Play is fun for about 15 minutes or showing new Wii players how to use the remote. I wouldn't buy Wii Play just for the game.

                - It's who you game with.

                  I have 2 controllers and 2 nunchuks. I bought the Wii classic one because I thought I needed it and I didn't even think about using GameCube one's. Oh well.

                    4 Wii-motes + 2 Nunchucks = all you need with your Gamecube controllers...

                    ps Mario Party 8 is fun, but Guitar Hero 3 for Wii is a million times better, two guitars and your a gift giving god!
