    I'm sure this has been asked before, but I cannot find a specific answer to the question so I'll ask it here.

    Is there a Brook converter that is PS3/PS4 to Xbox 360? I'm looking to use me TE2 fightstick for 3rd strike on 360.

    To many pages to go through in this thread, but do sega saturn USB controllers work with the PS3, to ps4 convertor? I dont see it listed as if it works or not on the website itself. Thanks

    I don't know if I'm posting in the right place. I just bought a Xbox one controller to PS4 converter. I want to use my Xbox controller and I know voice chat doesn't work but my question is, I have Astro A40 headsets that are plugged into the PS4 via USB and optical audio with a mixamp. Will still be able to voice chat since I'm not plugging into my controller? Please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong place and where I should post if so. Thanks for any replies.

    yes, it works in that way

    No, it doesn't work, the controller doesn't have a button that can be used as the home button

    man youd think someone would have tried this, sega saturn pads are pretty famous so... I dunno dropping 50 bucks on something wtih out knowing if it works or not is a pretty expensive experiment.

    Hori Pad 3 Pro confirmed to be working with the PS3/PS4 to PS2 adapter, even with analog triggers. Still waiting for the Hori V3.

    Brook PS3/PS4 board confirmed to work with the PS3 to Xbox 360 adapter. Still cannot get the adapter to work with my Madcatz Street Fighter 4 SE joystick. I remember hearing that the issue with getting that joystick to work on PC is that you need a certain, older USB board. Is this the same issue here?

    So i just received my xbox1 to ps4 adapter today but for some reason it wouldnt work in the front 2 usb ports on the playstation. i had to plug it into the back port. Anyone else have this issue or know a way to fix that? Its not a big deal i just liked having my headset plugged in the back and wanted to use the front for my controller.

    I’ve definitely used my 360/XBone adapter on my PS4 in the front. Dumb question but are you sure it was all the way in? It’s slighlty taller than the space the PS4 has, so you have to push it in good. It’s why I use an extension cable usually.

    If yours is a PS4 pro, I remember hearing that the only way to get the adapter to work with the USB ports on the front is to use a USB hub. But that was back when the PS4 pro was released, not sure about now,

  • RiderkickerRiderkicker Joined: Posts: 145
    Brook, I got your message and downloaded the firmware. I am still getting the same problems with the Hori V3. I put the switch to Dpad, so POV, all buttons work. However, my main problem with the device was the ghost inputs from the left and right sticks, seen on the Device Manager. Thanks for your help anyway, but I will investigate further. I read elsewhere that this is a tricky controller.
    It works great with my other controllers as I have said.

    If that’s all it is than I’m really too worried about it. I was just wondering if I did something wrong. I tested it on 2 PS4 pros and it was the same issue. I contacted the seller to see if they had any ideas. Like I said not a huge deal just curious. Thank for the reply

    you are using PS4 Pro, aren't you?
    you need a hub to plug to the front port
    due to the new design of the shell, the converter cannot be plugged to the front port totally

    Yeah I'm on the Pro. It's not a big deal. Works great by the way.

    Hi, I have a problem with xone to ps4 converter. Today I have updated the ps4 at 4.73 firmware with the converter plugged on (before the update the converter was working fine) and after the update the converter stopped working, no light lights up when plugged on ps4 or even on the PC. Can you help me please? Thanks.

    I see that there's now a dedicated Xbox->Switch converter listed on the site.. Does this adapter fix the analog sticks problems mentioned in this post:

    So I've been testing the 360/X1 to Wii U converter running the SWITCH firmware and using my Xbox Elite Controller.

    The SWITCH picks up the controller and I've been playing Zelda but the Analog Sticks are not working correctly.

    Have a look at this Youtube video from 7.20mins onwards and you will see the problem.


    If it does, does that mean that a firmware update for Xbox->Wii U adapters also contains the fix? Or does the Xbox->Switch adapter have the same problem?

    Really? I have the same converter and I turned on my PS4 after the update to see if id have any problems and so far everything seems normal. Curious to see if there will be any updates put out.

    @GOGO.Zippy Yea i know. I just played for about 30 minutes to see how the controls felt and everything felt fine after the update for me. Not sure why it stopped working for the other guy.

    so the converter was plugged to PS4 when you updated PS4 OS? was there a controller plugged to the converter then?

    on PC, you can go to Devices and Printers to see if your PC recognizes the device as a P4 wired gamepad or HID transfer, if you see nothing, then the converter should be broken...

    Don't the Switch pro controller have the same layout as the Xbox controllers?
    Or are we looking into stuff like the Pokken controller?

    I got a bunch of the Brook PS3/PS4 to PS2 Converters and I love them they work perfect. Brook is the best and I really appreciate them for the great work they do.

    I need to get some PS3/PS4 to XBOX 360 Super Converters and I am hearing that they are not working for some, something about not being firmware upgradable. I know Arcade Shock and Paradise both have them. Anyone have info on this ?

    Because PS3 to Xbox360 can't update via USB, so that we phased out and stopped to support.

    Hi, I've got a pair of PS3/4 to Neo Geo converters, and they seem to work well with most types of sticks at our local monthly events. One guy has a Qanba stick that it doesn't seem to recognize though - is there a general compatibility update on the way?

    I was going to put a Cthulu in my hitbox alongside the UFB for Gamecube functionality but I want a temporary solution until later. As far as I know the WiiU converter turns it into a pro controller, right?

    I've downloaded and tried the update (both the one from Brook's website and the one you linked) multiple times. Still no luck.

    Some more detail
    When I first tried to update, it didn't seem like the converter would power on when I connected it to my computer, as the light wasn't on and my PC wouldn't recognize that anything was plugged in
    I tried 2 methods:
    1. Move the switch to "XID" and hold the button on the converter while plugging it into the computer to put it in update mode
    2. Plug it into the PS2 (switch to "PS2") and power on the PS2 while holding the button

    Hey I just bought my THIRD brook converter.
    Should arrive tomorrow, a PS3/PS4 to Xbox one.

    My question is can I daisy link converters e.g. Plug my Xbox 360 to PS4 converter into the PS3/PS4 To Xbox one to get my 360 stick to work on Xbox one?

    Does that make sense. Will it work? Will having two converters cause more lag???

    It will most likely work, the extra weight might damage your usb port though, just get a 360 to X1 adapter.

    what is the game you are playing?
    you can move the switch to "XID" and then test the button functionality in Devices and Printers on PC.
    if it works, then the problem should be the game...

    Just tried the beta version of PS3/PS4 to PS2 converter. I used it with the Dreamcast EMS adapter. It works like a dream now. No lag (at least I didn't notice) playing CVS2. I used a Universal Brook pcb in this setup.

    This folks at Brook are amazing. They brought the same PS2 to Dreamcast Adapter to make it compatible.

    I still need to test it with 2 of the same converter is attached to the Dreamcast. So far though, it looks good.

    This might have been answered in the past but I have a PS3/PS4 to PS3/PS4 converter and was wondering if this will work with a MC Cthulhu? I plan on grounding the Home button since I don't plan on drilling a hole for an old TE1 stick I'm updating. Thanks!
