A Japanese Auction Features a Wii Remote Prototype for GameCube

An interesting find in an online auction this week as a rarity has been found from Nintendo. A prototype remote for the Wii made for the GameCube. The remote itself is weird for a couple of reasons, aside from the fact that it's for a system that has not yet been created. The remote is not wireless, it's wired with a port for the GameCube, and it comes with an Ethernet port on the base of the controller that for some reason is the port they chose to connect the nunchuck.

It's a cool little find and a nice piece of Nintendo history, even though it's a complete oddity that serves little purpose beyond a few titles that would have been released on a console at that time. The auction itself is over already as it sold for roughly $661.
