Re: Wii/Gamecube game

Yes you can play gamecube games with no emulators. The memory card slots and controller ports are located on top.

Re: Wii/Gamecube game

Yes. What do you think the GameCube controller slot was for? And when you insert a a disc and go to the Game Channel Can't you see a spinning GameCube game as well.

SOURCE: can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?

The Wii can play GameCube games, but you cannot play Nintendo 64 games.

Also, to play GameCube games, you will still need GameCube controllers. The Wii has 4 GameCube controller ports on it. The Wii controllers will not work for playing GameCube games.

SOURCE: wii will play gamecube games but not wii games

I heard something on youtube about that. It seems that the disc is hitting on the case so you would have to take it apart and fix it.

Well i have expirienced the same thing. what you have to do is put the console face down so that the game slot is facing the floor then press the eject button but if that doesnt work you have to heat up the system by leaving it on for about 3 hours then tilt it and press the button and that should get the disc out for you.

If there is a game stuck inside the system, nintendo will want to have it come in for repair so they can safely remove it and get it back to you, if youve had it with in a year they should do the fix for free. Give them a call and see what they have to offer.

Wii controller won't work with gamecube game in wii console

Gamecube games don't have the proper coding installed on the discs in order to receive commands from the Wiimote. You'll have to have a Gamecube controller to play Gamecube games even on the Wii console.

Well there is a hardware issue with the gamecube that needs to be fixed then. Or you could buy a wii and play gamecube games on a wii like i do instead. Wii's are better than gamecubes are because they both play wii and gamecube disc's too.

How do you get the nitendo game cube to play on the wii

The Nintendo Wii already comes with everything needed to play GameCube. GameCube disks are loaded and unloaded from the system in the same way that Wii game disks are used. To play the games you are going to need a GameCube controller and a GameCube memory card to save progress. On the top of the system (if the system is vertical) or on the side (if it is laying down) are two flaps, one which opens to reveal the controller ports and the other reveals the slots for the memory cards. To play GameCube, simply select the top left square from the main menu (like you would for any Wii game), select start, and then use the GameCube controller to play the game.

How do you use a Gamecube controller on the Wii ?

Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.

Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.

I have the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Gamecube, but i am trying to play it on my Wii but it won't let me. It says the game is unreadable. What could i do to play the game if it is possible.


A game that's designed for the Gamecube will only play on a Gamecube unless you play it on a computer with the correct emulator installed.

You cannot play any Gamecube, Xbox, PS3 etc games on the Wii

Will the Nintendo Wii control work with the Game Cube games? I can't find a button to play the game. I am trying to play Ratatouille on the Game Cube with a Wii control.

Well that depends if your trying to play gamecube games on the gamecube or the wii?, i assume your doing it on the wii because anyone would know that a wii control wouldn't work on a gamecube, not impossible, just very hard

wii remotes do work with the nintendo wii on wii games and on gamecube games, but it is better if you use a gamecube controller and plug it into the to holes under the flap, pictured below, hopefully.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?

You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
