    Was looking into these for MAME and I see they also make an adapter for Wii/Gamecube.

    Anyone have one of these and can speak personally for it?

    No one huh? Well it got a great review from IGN. I'm considering buying one since you can get an adapter for Xbox, PS2, USB etc. But with a $150 + adapter cost I was looking for some personal reviews of this baby.

    Sorry think you misunderstood, that adapter is specific to that
    arcade controller. The controller has like a serial connector on the back, then they make a adapter for each type of console to match up the buttons and directional sticks with that specific system. So there is 1 connector for Xbox, 1 for PS2, 1 for Wii/GC, USB etc. You just buy the ones you need, they aren't expensive maybe like $10.

    Ahh, well I want an Arcade stick, you know the same look and feel of a standup machine. But I want the ability to play it on different consoles such as the Xbox. But mainly I would be buying it to play MAME on my PC.
