It has an analog controller and 2 buttons, C and Z. You can buy the Classic Controller for use with GameCube games.
The Wii has a feature that allows it to play Nintendo GameCube Games, as well as Wii games. There are special plugs for GameCube controllers on the top of the WII console. Special controllers can be bought for use with these games as well as WII remotes. The Nintendo DS can play games from another Nintendo handheld, the Nintendo Gameboy Advance. However the newest DS, the DSi or DSi XL, cannot.
