There was also multiple limited edition controllers released, including the Panasonic Q GameCube Controller that was released only in Japan as part of a GameCube DVD combine console that was only released there.
Nintendo were one of the first companies at that time, among its competitors, to release a wireless version of the GameCube controller. The WaveBird controller was released in 2002, it was sold separately, rather than being bundled with a standard console, but did appear with special edition released consoles such as Metroid Prime and Mario Party 4. The WaveBird was released in one basic colour, silver, and in two Limited editions exclusive to club Nintendo, Gundam Char’s customize colour and a Club Nintendo WaveBird special edition. These special editions were exclusively released in Japan.
The console sold nearly 22 million units world wide from 2001 – 2007 when it was discontinued, for every console sold, if another controller was purchased that would put controller sales at a gigantic 44 millions units.
In 2014 Nintendo released a super smash bros version of the GameCube controller, to support the release of the Wii U console. The controller was available in black and white. There were also other limited edition variations released.
