    The vibration function is what makes me not believe it (and the fact that both adaptors are male [​IMG]) because I don't know of any expansion controllers that support vibration.

    You don't know for certain they both are male. After all I have a PS2 extension cable that looks like that on one end that the male end of the controller gets plugged into.

    I've got an adaptater PS2 -> GC (for my Wii), and it's look like the same.

    You think the PS2 connector is male, but no it's a female one.

    I think this version is similar.

    There's actually a MadCatz Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Wii-exclusive joystick coming out. I always though MadCatz made crap, though.

    Hm, I could buy a few adapters and buy a PS2 Rock Band set (which is a lot cheaper). I have a PS2 anyways, so it wouldn't be a waste.

    can't go wrong with the adapter, cheap, works, and is alot better than going out to buy wii specific instruments

    I really wouldn't punish myself using that stick.
    Having a stick thats compatible with as many systems possible is your best bet with real arcade stick and buttons for best compatibility with adapters you cant beat using a PSX PCB
    For more info on good sticks and how to get the most out of them visit SRK
    I currently use a PSX/2 to GC adapter for TVsC with a iL/Happ comp modded SFAC stick and psx pcb with various adapters it works on xbox, xbox 360, ps1/2/3, saturn, dreamcast, PC and if i used older systems most of those also. In the long run it pays to have 1 good stick (can be expensive) and cheap adapters than bundles of hopeless cheap junk sticks that will eventually become regrets.

    This makes the PS2 Controller act the role as a Classic Controller or a GCN Controller?

    yes it makes playing smackdown 2010 and nba 2k10 much easier than using the wiimote/nunchuck combo.
