Crazy xbox to ps2 adapter question


#1

Ok now this may sound crazy, but I was wondering what the possability would be to reverse-engineer a ps2 to xbox adapter to act as an xbox to ps2 adapter?

Has anyone tried this before and had any results that would help me out with this little idea? Or heck, does someone just make one?


#2

well to be honest i actually made one a while ago but it didn go very well… i actually took a male side of a ps2 extension cord and put it on the output side of the converter…so then it worked as a short extension… and then i changed the input female side by cracking the tip of the xbox controller(all the tips are just a USB) and i tryed getting it to work but the left analog and triggers i couldn get to go…mayb a voltage problem since i believe xbox requires more than ps2


#3

maybe you could give me some more info on this? i don’t really need the triggers or the analogs. maybe this could work for me. do you stil got it around?


#4

well the main reason i cant get this to work is that ps2 have double grounds… ps2 controllers are 2 complicated for me to try somethin like this… prolly y there isnt any converters already out there that i can find like this… ill look for it and see if i didn throw it out… if not ill draw some quik pictures and diagrams if u still want to know

Thanks so much.
But actually I found a place overseas that is making them and selling them online. It took a lof of searching though, must not be in high-demand:)

#14

Thanks for this thread, guys. I perfer the Xbox’s d-pad and superior analog sticks over the PS2’s shitty segmented d-pad and etc any day of the week. :tup:

Sorry about the negative comments towards the PSX/PS2 pads, but I never really liked them and hate how Sony never really strayed too far from their design of the damn things. :tdown:
