The pro controller is definitely a great controller too... they just need to drop their prices.

So these controllers don't have GC plugs?????? What's the adapter they're selling for?

The adapter they are selling is for actual GameCube controllers. These are remodeled Classic Pro Controllers.

Ok thanks. Ill just stick to the actual GC controllers then. I still have an orange GC controller ready for action.
