*Playstation Pad Users: We encourage people to bring their own pads and converters for the 360 games. However, if you are unable to do so, we will have PS2 -> 360 converters (they also do PS2 -> PS3 and 360 -> PS3) available to buy at $10 or rent at $3 ($10 collateral required). These converters have not been thoroughly tested, so they are not guaranteed to be lagless. However, initial tests as well as anecdotes from Tech Talk and Youtube seem to suggest that they have no/low lag. Remember, bring your own PS2 controllers!
