    five different control options: Wheel, Wii Remote turned on its side, Wii Remote and Nunchuk combination, Classic Controller and even Nintendo GameCube controller.
    That is what I like to see, it's nice and easy to include gamecube controls so they should do more often, same for classic controller

    Yeah, I think I'm going to stick to classic, rather than buying the Wii wheel, save some money.

    I was referring to a programming side of it, comparison wise for the GC controller there isn't much to include (done input with my uni 'Cube programming)

    But I have a GC, Classic and Wiimote/nunchuck so will dabble to see what I like

    The Wii wheel is being bundled with this, isn't it ?

    Had an email from Game for pre-order, wheel included, £34.99.

    Bearing in mind the missus is currently tormenting me with Mario & Sonic Olympic drivel, Mario Kart can't come soon enough

    Couldn't agree with you more. Mario Kart is one game that always proves to be awesome fun, even the tiny DS version is fantastic.
