Converters

With the arrival of the PS3 as the new console home for Tekken, it also brings up the notion of arcade stick/controller compatibility. How can I get my PS1 or PS2 arcade stick/controller to work on the PS3? Your answers lie here.

UPDATE: Since the PS3 1.7 firmware update, the majority of USB converters now allow you to use PS1/PS2 controllers while playing PS3/PS2/PS1 games. Results may vary per converter.

  1. Hello I’m just wondering if you have tried the Pega PS3 to PS2 converter. Im trying to look for other converters here (Philippines) but can’t find any.

    Thanks very much.

  2. Ok… Now the real important question for you all…. Do these work for the guitar controllers??
    No… seriously… stop laughing… yes Im a 38 year old “Hooked-on-Hero” gal and I want to bring my PS2 guitar to my friends house and play head-to-head on his PS3.
    Any help would be great!!!
    Also seem to have a hard time buying ANY of these as the web links appear to be all sold out???
    Suggestions?
