that controller adapter thread isnt the best. there are MANY small name companies that arent listed.


#5

As the person who put together the thread, I take offense to that. Why would I name EVERY SINGLE adapter out there when no one has any idea if it works well or not? Why put the name of 10 different PS2->PS3 adapters that all have lag? No point.


#6

Hahah dude that’s awsome and nice of you. I can tell you have some tech-monkey curiosity in you because I’ll bet you already own two Pelicans. :bgrin:


#7

This looks very promising!!!


#8

He owns like 20 of them.


#9

Aight cool stuff, thanks. And for people talking about the controller thread, yes i should’ve posted there. My bad. I was just excited about this ‘promising’ adapter and wanted to attract some views.

Pelican 4 life.


#11

I wish I could say the same but I don’t exactly feel like shelling out 100$ for one of those things on ebay.


#12

The Pelican is garbage.

This thread should be closed. There is an entire huge fucking thread just for converters.

I think there is a point. Then you know which ones don’t have lag lol. I see a pretty big point in that. I myself have a pelican and thank you for your thread, but I think if its too be thorough, even ones that dont work should be included, because someone dumb (me) will buy other converters because they think it is some uncovered gem.


#14

suddenly there’s a huge flux of pelicans on ebay. lol


#15

haha. i’m reminded of a funny quote from donald rumesfeld. he basically broke down information into 4 categories:

known good
known bad
known unknown
unknown unknown

its confusing - but its true. the 4th category can be thrown out - but a true 1 stop repository should have the first 3 accounted for… as they all serve a purpose. even the known unknown… as someone like MarkMan may intentionally try something untested so that his discovery can help the greater community in the future.


#16

Sometimes I wonder if you think before you post


#17

By the way, the manager of the EB near my place informed me there’s a new converter coming out soon, not sure on the company though.


#18

word. got each for 10 bucks.


#19

Lucky you. Living in Woodbridge I can’t find anything of rarity that is tech-related.

Lets see…the Pelican is a laggy converter going for way too much money.

And there is a thread just for converters, therefore, any converter questions should be in here.

Now what is there to think about?
