Going to get a VSHG in Japan


#1

While being here in Japan for awhile I’ve been seeing these VSHGs in all sorts of game shops for a good price of only $60. I don’t have a PS3 yet so I’d be getting it for PC/MAME.

But I think I keep hearing people occasionally say something about the VSHG being recalled and having some sort of problems. Is there any reason I shouldn’t get one?

As a side question, I hear there is a special adaptor that allows you to use a PS3 controller on the PS2. Is that true? Will it allow me to use my VSHG on my PS2?


#2

Places like Gamestop sell PS3–>PS2 adapters, but they are not 100% compatible with PS2 items.

After that, not much more I can offer… sry.

I think you mean the other way around son…

Just look at the barcode portion on the back of the box, if it has been updated with a sticker you’re getting one where the problems have already been corrected by Sega.
