If you're like me, you threw away your Guitar Hero controller for the PlayStation 2. Who needs a useless piece of out-dated tech, am I right? But if you're like me, you'll read the below news and be like, "Oh, Crap!"
The Ant Commandos announced today its universal PlayStation 2 to PlayStation 3 adapter for guitar and game controllers. It's now available at retail for an SRP of $19.99.
According to the company, the universal adapter is 100% compatible with all of the popular guitar controllers on the market, and is "engineered to function perfectly with every feature in the Guitar Hero 3 and Rock Band games for PS3."
“When consumers purchase a PS2 to PS3 adapter for their favorite PS3 games, they expect everything to be compatible. It is devastating for a player to discover that certain game features such as hammer on, hammer off don’t work with other adapters on the market,” said Jesse Manwill, Senior Manager, Product Management at TAC.
I couldn't agree more. I was devastated when I couldn't do hammer-ons. I cried for eight weeks and killed a transient.
