OMG: Sega Saturn USB Controller works Flawlessly on PS3!


#1

Was bored and decided to plug my Sega made, PC Saturn controller into my PS3 and loandbehold, the shit works and the buttons map correctly!!

X,Y,Z = Square, Triangle, L2
A,B,C = X, Circle, R2

Who knew?


#2

I did. Go into the “Converter thread”, I posted a while ago.
I tested MKII online with the USB Sat / DC / PS1,2 pad and it worked (I did not make a deep test, only simple one). Even my SNES USB adapter worked almost properly.
That was my consideration when chosing the PS3 over the 360 for ST HD 6 months ago.

thats pretty neat. although i do love my 360, PS3 continues to dazzle me in terms of compatibility and utility.


#4

You tested it with a converter? I used this…

Regardless, it’s hella impressive. I never got used to a ps1/ps2/ps3 pad and now, I don’t ever have to.:rock:


#5

If anyone knows where I can get one of the USB Saturn controllers, let me know. I NEED one! :frowning:


#6

What SNES converter?


#7

How about games that requiers the selete button…


#8

How about PS2 BC games?


#9

I guess it’d work with PS2 BC games but my PS3 doesn’t support them. It does in fact work with PS1 BC games. I tested it on Alpha 3 and VF5 and it was all gravy.

:wtf:


#10

I wish the Saturn USB controller or any USB controllers for that matter works on the 360…Fuck you Microsoft


#11

I just wish there was a place/store where I can purchase them easily… ;(


#12

A stuff called “Smartjoy”.
MKII is so awfull I couldn’t stay +1 mn on it , and SF HD is delayed for ever, so I’ve had no way to test it.
Probably there are pb with lags, select buttons etc … But it worked.
My PS3 is not PS2 BC.


#13

search “sega usb” on ebay! I just bought four pads.


#14

I think we should have a dedicated Sega Saturn controller thread. lol.


#15

If anyone finds an online store that has these, pleeeease tell us!


#16

Can’t do ebay?

#17

Please, someone find out if this is backwards compatible with PS2 and PS1 games. Would be really cool.
