    Does anyone know a site where I can buy a GC to USB connector?
    I would like to connect my GC-controller to my PC, so I can play Fifa on the PC with a controller (and emulators too).

    Or if you really recommend me not to connect my GC controller to my PC, you can recommend me another good controller for the PC to play Fifa and emulators with.

    Also if a game is badly ported to the PC (like Saint's Row 2, the console version was really good and the PC version just sucks), would playing that game with a controller help?

    I am a big fan of the GC controller, but I would recommend a PS2 to USB adapter instead. Ps2 controllers are pretty cheap nowadays and more comfortable then they look. The analog switch also ups the compatibility with PC applications (some programs won't recognize the movement of an analog stick when you are setting controls) and is much more useful in PC games then in PS2 games. A PS2 controller easily beats out almost any PC controller as well - something you can easily feel with both in your hands

    Well, I bought a GC controller a couple of months ago for 30 euros and it's hardly being used with my Wii. I wouldn't really want to spend another 25 euros on a PS2 controller for something my GC controller will be able to do too.
    A PS2 controller sounds perfect, but I'm not eager to pay again....

    Try Wal Mart.. They have three in 1 adapter.. PS2/GC/xbox for only 10 dollars. I tried two -- PSX/PS2 and GC controllers and they works AWESOME!!!! [​IMG]

    Amazon has them but 20 dollars.. You should go to wal mart for 10 dollars only. Do you want to see what it is look like ? Here:

    That sounds perfect!
    But as I live in Belgium, there's no way I can buy from Walmart. I'll have to buy from Amazon then....
    I found it on Amazon, if anyone is interested:

    http://www.amazon.com/GAMEON-FT-8D91-UNIVE...2683&sr=8-1

    But does it work with Vista 64bit?

    Thanks for the help!

    Keep those suggestions coming [​IMG]

    these sorts of adapters tend to not need drivers, usually just plug and play, you should be good
