PS2 to PS3 adapters


#1

I’ve heard that since the firmware update, some of the adapters don’t work anymore. Which ones still do? If I have a custom built PS2 stick (and not a brand name one), will the adapter work?

Also will it work on PC?


#2

inpin is all you need.


#3

Who knows? What kind of PCB is inside of it? Open it up and take a picture of the board.

What’s inpin? Something like this?

I also highly recommend the Pelican adapter. There are 2 for sale in the trading outlet right now in this sale thread:

There is already a whole thread (8 pages and counting) on the Subject. Alot of people (including my self) report what devices work or do not work with the PS3. Honestly I would say search more next time before posting.

Also check this two next threads, since its a thread all on converters and how they work on each system.

As to answer you questions Dragonfall, most (if not all) PS2 to PS3 USB adapters work for PC/Mac since they work on generic HID drivers. I Tested out quite a few adapters, and even the really cheap adapters on Deal Extreme works on PS3 (as long as they also do not contain Jail breaking devices).
