Accessories: ...or how to confuse your drunk friends.
So, have you been using your dislike of the GameCube controller as an excuse for not buying the system? Well, thanks to Nyko you can stop. The PlayCube from Nyko allows you to convert any analog Playstation or PS2 controller into a GameCube controller. This boils down to two things: One, you can pick from whichever controller you prefer; Two, you don't have to pony up for brand new controllers for your four-player GameCube gaming sessions.
How the PlayCube breaks down is that every button on your existing Playstation controller winds up being mapped to a similar GameCube function. Everything is laid out logically and if you know the location of a button on one controller, you will easily be able to find the corresponding key on the other. As an added bonus, the PlayCube does still allow for you to take advantage of the vibration function.
At a price point of only $9.99, the PlayCube is an inexpensive way to get some four-player gaming going on your GameCube. Of course, that is assuming you already have a couple of PS controllers laying around. If nothing else, you can finally take the, "If only the GameCube controller were more like the PS2 controller," excuse away from your whining friends.
