So you've got your Wii, and you've downloaded your favorite NES game (mine being the original Zelda) but something just doesn't feel right. Maybe the Wiimote just doesn't feel nostalgic enough for you.
What if you could take that old NES controller and make it wireless for the Wii? That would be awesome, and now you can do it. Mark Feldman has compiled a video tutorial on just how to make this mod happen.
If you don't feel comfortable desecrating your favorite controller from the past, you could always get an adapter for it. But what's the challenge in that?

Ironically, straight after suggesting that there's finally a good reason for buying a PS3 comes the news that European gamers wanting to play their back-catalogue of PlayStation 2 games might do better waiting until after the launch. Sony has just released a statement where they attempt to justify removing the dedicated emulation chip (which allows US and Japanese variants of the console to play up to 98 percent of PS2 games) made by Datamonitor and replacing it with a less-effective software emulator:
"Rather than concentrate on PS2 backwards compatibility, in the future, company resources will be increasingly focused on developing new games and entertainment features exclusively for PS3, truly taking advantage of this exciting technology" David Reeves, President, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe
Customers are likely to be unimpressed by paying considerably more than their US and Japanese counterparts for a console that is tangibly inferior. Not a great move, Sony!
