NO WIRES!!! Brilliantly comfortable.
No rumble feature, and games don't auto-pause when battery dies (like they tend to if you just pull the contoller out).
The GameCube Wavebird Wireless Controller is possibly the best controller I've had the good fortune to use. The analogue stick isn't soft or loose like the PS and PS2, and even with the battery comparment its still smaller and better laid out than the housebrick you get with an X-Box. It's easily worth getting a GC just for the quality of its controllers, well thought out layout, with every button easily reckognisable without having to look at the controller (not like the X-box's 1000 identicle buttons of doom), comfortable to hold for long periods and with an amazing battery life (On average a set of batterys will last about 3 weeks of daily gaming before needing to be re-charged).
All in all...GREAT!
