In some production lab deep within the mountains of Japan, Japanese peripheral company Hori spliced together a Nintendo GameCube controller, Nintendo Wii functionality and a whole lot of auto-firing.
The result on that stormy night was the Hori Classic Controller. Asia gamestuff import sales sitePlay-Asia claims Hori captured the multi-colored beast and are selling it for 2,980 yen (roughly $30.00) on November 27, 2008.
Hori’s take on the “classic controller” offers two auto-fire settings (double and triple from the looks of it) for every button via a switch. It also looks like it’s mainly for use with Nintendo 64 games and Nintendo GameCube games, as well as shooters, since that D-pad is appears to have an uncomfortable thumb range.
