Wee.... See this is what we get when a company doesn't use proprietary, We get companys other then the mother company that will try and squeeze money out of you for overpriced stuff.

And I'm just gonna turn a blind eye towards all the cool extra gadgets we also get

Somehow I doubt the guitar controllers will work, because simple usb adaptors that are out already don't work. If they are able to change that though it would be a welcome change.

It'd be easy enough for them to include a PS3 button on the adapter or something of that nature, wouldn't it?

I don't want to give them too much credit, but calling them idiots out of hand seems a bit premature.

EDIT: typo
