[*] I experienced some initial trouble using my PS3 controllers to play PS2 games, but have since found that they work for most games. So this USB adapter is NOT necessary to play all PS2 games on your PS3.
[*] This DOES enable use of your old PS2 analog controllers to play MOST PS3 games. However, any PS3 game requiring the Sixaxis functionality of the new PS3 controllers and some that require R2/L2 sensitivity will not function perfectly. Also, since PS2 controllers do NOT have the Playstation/Home button that PS3 controller's have, you cannot easily exit out of games to the PS3 menu screen as you can with PS3 controllers.
[*] This DOES enable use of your PS2 analog controllers to navigate the PS3 menu screens, PSN, internet browser, etc.
[*] This is NOT fully functional with your old PS2 Guitar Hero controller. It is partially functional, but that's not good enough for GH.
[*] This IS functional for using MOST PS2 accessories (eg, steering wheels, arcade sticks, DDR mats) on your PS3. But your device may not work 100% which is likely an issue with your device's compatibility with the PS3, not this adapter.
[*] You can order this directly from Eforcity, the manufacturer in CA, for a total of $6.25 through Amazon. Mine was packaged well and shipped very quickly. It arrived in just 2 days.
[*] A Playstation 3 Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller costs $50 & the 'old' Sixaxis cost ~$40-45. A PlayStation 2 Dualshock Controller Black only costs $20 + $6.25 for this adapter. Even a nice wireless PlayStation 2 Cordless Action Controller only costs $30.
I am very happy with the two eforcity adapters I purchased. They are small and simple, but they allow me to play old PS2 games on my new PS3 as well as use my old PS2 controllers with new PS3 games.
Hope this information is helpful. Please click 'Yes' if it is.
Reducing to 1 star because it stopped working in Windows 7 and Linux after a short amount of use, and I could never get it working again.
The product I received does not look like the one shown in the seller images, nor does it resemble the one shown in the existing customer images. It came in a retail box with an eForCity sticker on it, but the product inside appears different: It is a one inch cable with a male USB connector on one end and a PSX controller port connector on the other. There is no box in the middle of the cable like the one shown in the images.
My guess is that the seller is doing one or more of the following:
- selling multiple different devices under this listing
- selling different revisions of the same item from the manufacturer or primary vendor
- posting images that are for a different item with similar specifications
Fortunately, the item works as advertised. In fact, the retail box specifically claims driverless PC support. I am currently using it with a laptop running Windows 7 x64 and it works fine with a first-party (Sony) PS1 dual shock controller.
With the "ANALOG" light on, the left stick shows up as an analog X/Y axis, while the right stick shows up as Z axis/rotation. The D-pad shows up as a POV hat, and 12 buttons are registered (in order: triangle, circle, X, square, L2, R2, L1, R1, select, start, L3, R3. The dead zone on the sticks seems reasonable.
With the "ANALOG" light off, the analog sticks do nothing (except for L3 and R3) while the D-pad maps to the X/Y axis.
I am happy with my purchase. For less than $5 I am able to use one of my many spare PS1 controllers for PC gaming, which is great because PS1 controller D-pads are superior to those of any PC gamepad that I've seen.
