I’ve searched the forums, and could not find the answer.
I’ve been interested in purchasing a fighting stick for my PS3, but I have read here and there on the net about how some fighting sticks can’t play PS2 software on a backwards-compatible PS3. I have several PS2 games still that I enjoy playing on my PS3.
For example, I’ve heard that Madcatz sticks have this issue (http://support.madcatz.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/88/54/can-my-ps3-arcade-fightstick-te-and-standard-or-ps3-fightpad-work-with-ps2-games-on-a-backward-compatible-ps3).
I’ve read on this forum about the Qanba sticks also having that problem; something about the PS Home button not functioning, thus the PS2 game is inoperable?
The only fight stick maker that I haven’t heard having this issue is Hori. Can anyone direct me to a list of fight sticks that can play PS2 software on a backwards-compatible PS3 please? Thank you.
I was looking forward to purchasing a Qanba stick, as they can be used on PS3, PC, and Xbox, which is a big plus.
I am leaning toward the Hori Real Arcade Pro V3 SA, as that’s within my budget.
Thank you for reading, and looking forward to hearing back with positive and insightful info.
