Hello there, I’m fairly new so go easy…
I’m inquiring about the Qanba Q2 joystick which works for the PS3 and PC, it’s an awesome arcade styled joystick and I’ve been enjoying using it on the PS3 and it even works on my PC, like it states.
However, I have a backwards compatible PS3 and when I try to play PS2 games, every game asks me to plug in the controller. I press the “home” button which is essentially the “PS” button on a regular controller but no response. I’m actually wondering since there doesn’t seem to be any notion of it anywhere, does the Qanba simply not work on PS2 titles even if you have a backwards compatible PS3?
If that’s the case, then I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what a good PS2 controller would be on a PS3/PS2 compatible machine. I’ve actually looked it up but found very little. The best one I’ve been able to find is a Universal Arcade Fighting Stick that seems to work for PS2/PS3/PC… which is fine, but I’m not sure it’s the same quality. As long as it works fine, I’m alright with it. It’s just a shame.
Frankly, I’d like to avoid customizing, and I’d like to avoid spending even more money than I have for the Qanba.
There is a Virtual Arcade Stick that seems to work for PS2, PSX and Saturn’s, which would be great to have honestly, but I’m trying to avoid using my PS2 because the PS3 seems to work fine with most of my games anyway.
Any advice would be appreciated, I’m not really much of a core gamer, but I wanted some insight if the Qanba Q2 just doesn’t work with PS2 games on a PS3 even if it’s backwards compatible. Thanks
