If you're anything like us, one of the few things keeping that PlayStation 2 from being relegated to the same box that stores your Xbox, Gamecube, and (in some alternate reality) your Dreamcast, is the system's complete inability to rock out with the Guitar Hero series. Nearly six months after the PlayStation 3's launch, a peripheral manufacturer has finally realized that this whole Guitar Hero thing is ... well, it's sort of a big deal.

Enter: Pelican, and their PS6388 PS2 to PS3 adapter which, according to Aeropause, is "Guitar Hero™ 1 and 2 Ready: Plug in your favorite guitar and rock out to Guitar Hero 1 and 2 on your PS3." Unlike previous adapters, the Pelican adapter features support for multiple controllers and a PS button enabling it to bypass the PS3's back-compat limitations. Will it work with Rock Band?
