SNES Wii controller (sort of) releasing in UK


The classic Wii-compatible SNES pad, exclusive to Japan since 2007, is finally releasing in the UK through Nintendo's loyalty program, Club Nintendo.

The pad can be plugged into the Wiimote and be used as a classic SNES controller. It'll cost 7,000 Star Points.

Owning one won't be easy though, as points can't be purchased; Nintendo customers can earn them either by registering certain DS (100 points ) and Wii (200 points) titles, taking part in surveys conducted by Nintendo, inviting friends to become a Club member or visiting certain websites.

Cheap? Not.
