And that's just what it's advertised to do. Although there is no mention of it, it will also make all of the above-mentioned PS1 and PS2 controllers, as well as the wired 360 controllers, work perfectly on the PS3. Just flip the switch to "P3", and plug in only the controller you intend to use (no second controller needed). As with the 360, they mapped the Analog button and the 360's Guide button to the PS button from the PS3 controller, so you can access all functions of the system without the need for a PS3 controller.
Overall I have been very happy with this product. I would stress that you should make sure to use first-party (Sony and Microsoft) controllers with this for best results.Read more ›
The way it works on the Xbox 360 is, you plug in the adapter's USB into a USB slot on your 360. Next plug in a wired 360 controller into the USB type A receptacle, now all that's left is the PS2 adapter. As you can see there is no place for you to connect a PS3 controller. All PS3 controllers require a USB cable or a USB receiver to sync to a new console for the first time. The adapter has only one USB type A receptacle which is used by the wired Xbox 360 controller. I have also tried connecting the PS3 controller to the receptacle and switching to both P3 and 360. This doesn't work because the adapter won't even register without a wired 360 controller, the only thing it can do is charge your PS3 controller. There is no way you can get this to work with a PS3 controller unless there is another converter for PS2 to a USB type A receptacle, which doesn't exist, to my knowledge anyway.
You can argue that one could use a PS2 controller but what about other PS3 accessories that require a USB, such as fight sticks and racing wheels? Surely no one wants to play Forza with a controller. Who wants to fight an opponent in a versus game with a controller? Not me.
If you do a search on eBay, many sellers list this product as a "PS2 to 360 adapter." They also make no mention of this adapter supporting the PS3.
Xbox 360 controllers do work on the PS3, just not the other way around. I guess this product serves its purpose if you want to convert 360 -> PS3 or PS2 -> 360. But the reason why I even purchased this adapter was to use PS3 controllers on the Xbox 360 not PS2. So this piece of plastic is useless to me.
1. You MUST have a Xbox wired controller.
2. This will NOT work with any PS3 controller wired or wireless. (Tried both ways!)
3. This will only WORK with a PS2 controller.
If you want the PS2 controller to work ONLY you MUST first plug in Wired Xbox controller USB
to female adapter on HDE Controller Adapter.
Then plug in the HDE USB adapter to Xbox.
When the the Xbox recognize Wired Xbox controller as player 1 on the controller, when the system
is on of course, then unplug Wired Xbox controller.
Then plug in PS2 controller to HDE adapter then it will work.
BTW the PS2 controls are laggy. (Tried with Blop2, it would not always fire when I wanted it to)
I tried the PS3 WIRED and WIRELESS with cord plugged in nothing works!
I spent too much wast full money on buying this and two wired Xbox and PS3 controller to try and make work.
I wanted the HDE adapter to use my PS3 controller for the Xbox360 system I never got it to work.
I would stay FAR away from this product!!!
Also you can't use this to convert any USB PS3 stick/controller to Xbox 360, since it only has 1 USB port you can plug into and requires a wired 360 controller plugged into it to work.
I give this a 3 out of 5. It's OK if you need an easy 360 to PS3 stick converter, but overall I would recommend any serious gamer/tournament player to either just buy a new stick or get your existing one dual modded.
