[games_access] PS3 Arcade Stick with analogue controls

Hi Brian,

Sony aren't in many people's good books at the moment are they!? On the PS2 to PS3 adapter front - this is the only one I'm aware of that still works...

They tend to get sold on eBay from Hong Kong, and they actually also work with PS2 to Xbox 360 (so long as you attach a wired Xbox 360 joypad). E.g. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PS2-Xbox-360-PS3-Controller-Converter-Adapter-Cable-/280667548217

Re. the arcade stick I'm after would be able to play most PS3 games - with a digital stick that is switchable between D-pad and emulated left-stick and right stick modes.

>From what I understand, when Sony released a recent firmware they took away a lot of USB functionality, including many PS2>PS3 adapters. A friend I gave our access controller to has been unable to use it for some time. This may pose a problem or limit your options.

And just to clarify, are you looking for a stick that can be modified to use analog input instead of digital, or looking for one that simulates an analog stick?

Hi all,

I've had a request for an arcade stick for the PS3. Is anyone aware of one that will work with analogue controls that is sub £100 / $130. I was wondering about the HORI Fighting Stick 2 with a PS2 to PS3 adapter, but haven't tried this for compatibility.

Best wishes,
