Spice Spice Baby... (GC)

It's true folks! You too can finally once again have the chance to buy the rare Spice GC Controller!

Okay, I'll stop with the act. Anyway, for those people dying to complete their set. Go to Amazon, where they have it ready to ship.

Hope this helps someone.

No, all Nintendo controllers are $34.99... regardless of the fact that they're about $20 in Japan. Stupid NoA.

Basically, you can not find them anywhere. For some reason NOA decided to only release a small number here now, at least for the time being. No idea why.

I have friends all over the country and brothers I've had looking for them, with no luck. Over on ign, people would complain about not finding them all the time.

It appears that Nintendo just shipped a batch of new ones out though, as I see that ebworld also has them. But up until a few days ago, these were MIA, really pissing off people that wanted 4 different colors for ease sake.

"Spice" is basically orange, its just Nintendo's name. It's a lighter orange.

Here's the link for the EB site:

They've been available from the Nintendo online store for months. I posted about it when I got mine, but nobody seemed to care then.

It doesn't look that special to me, either. Maybe all these people are taking interest in it just because of the fact that it's rare.

Thanks Groucho. I got mine from nintendo.com a while back. They shipped it fast too.

For those who don't know, a lot of Nintendo's games are multiplayer, and in order to distinguish the controllers, they make them different colors.

Jet Black
Spice
Indigo
Indigo/Clear (I would have gone all clear on this one)

I too think the names are silly, but kids would probably like it.

Sorry, I must have missed your post. About a month ago I started looking to pick one of these up, and they were out at NOA's site as well for a good while.

Like I said they must have just produced a bunch of new ones.

It looks like the Spice GC wil be coming out here, that will be cool.
