I’m a huge fan of the Sega Saturn joypads, mainly because I’ve gotten so used to them as I’ve put many long hours of gaming onto my Saturn. They still respond excellent, they’re without a doubt one of the most comfortable pads I’ve ever used too.
I’ve been using the Street Fighter Anniversary joypads for my fighters on the PS2 for the past year, but I still cannot get used to them. 2 things really, really annoy me about that design. 1st: Why the hell is the start and select button SO CLOSE to the top three attack buttons? I often hit those buttons accidently just by try to spam on the top 3 attack buttons to add damage or help shake out of dizzies and so forth. The result… constant pausing or game resets because of accidently hitting the start and/or select buttons. 2nd: The D-pad itself is just a big, thick, round circle with little to no grooves in it to help hit the diagnols of the pad consistantly. It is so difficult to do defense crouch charging motions in particular.
In a nutshell: I can’t stand these pads!
I’m not interested in using joysticks, because I’ve had several of them (including MAS) and they never had that feel of a cabinet SF2 stick.
Is there a Saturn to Playstation adapter that I could plug into my PS2 system to be able to use my Saturn pads on it?
If the PS1, Ps2, and PS3 all have the same plug in design (the jack outlet for the pads), then even a Saturn to PS1 adapter should still be able to plug into a PS2, right?
Bottom line is, please help me tech guru’s in solving this problem!
I want to use my Saturn pads on my PS2, but how?
