ps3 controllers work on ps2???

14 Replies 434 Views Created 18-08-2008

Heya! like loadsa people i got a 40gb ps3, that means no ps2 games. the worst thing about going back to my ps2 to play all my games, is the wired controller forcing me to sit on the floor.

 

does anybody know of anyway way to get the sixaxis or dualshock3 to work on the ps2. some kinda bluetooth adapter or anything. google is useless!

Personally I always hated 3rd party devices, they always felt cheap and nasty. I'd just stick to a wired DualShock 2 for the PS2.

I hate wired controllers, I always used to pull my PS2 off the desk. Now I can't even stand playing with the charging cable in on my PS3.
