Wii version of Twilight Princess will not support Gamecube controller

The annually-run Camp Hyrule (an online "camp" run by Nintendo, where cabins compete against each other in various mini-games and trivia) recently featured some Q&A sessions with Nintendo officials, most notably George Harrison (NoA Vice-President of Marketing). Though the sessions are generally uninformative, a fan threw out the question to which we really wanted a positive response: Will the Wii version of Twilight Princess allow players to use the standard Gamecube controls as well?

The answer: a resounding no. "The GCN controller will be able to play the GCN version on the Wii console, but will not be able to play the Wii version," said Harrison. This is saddening news for me people who would like to experience both control schemes without having to buy the game twice. Which will you choose, o' faithful reader?
