I used to play GBA games at home with the Game Boy Player accessory for the Nintendo Gamecube. It connects to the bottom of the GameCube, adding a base to it. Is there any way that it could be connected to the Nintendo Wii?

    My advice: Hold onto your GameCube. It's still a great system.

No, a Game Boy Player is not compatible with the Wii directly, as the Wii lacks the required Hi-Speed port availble on the Gamecube.

However, the Game Boy Player in combination with a Gamecube and a Seperate TV, is still a valid (but highly impractical) controller for the Gamecube and Wii games that support the GBA as controller.

    Additionally, the Nintendo DS and DS Lite (not DSi, not DSiXL, not 3DS) are capable of playing GBA games.
