I haven’t heard of any plans to offer the WaveBird Wireless Controllers in stores again (I did some checking, and we are still shipping the original Nintendo GameCube Controllers to stores). If you’re unable to find the original Nintendo GameCube Controller locally, you can still order this item from us. - Nintendo customer service rep
I actually didn’t know that Nintendo was still supplying stores with Cube controllers. I wonder how well they would sell if the redesigned the package with the Wii compatibility taking top billing. Thanks to Jab for the heads up.
