It is our understanding that any PS2 to Xbox (or PS2 to GameCube) controller converter will work with this system. Note: we have not tried this out, and are not connected to any of the linked sites, so buyer beware and all that. Here’s a Froogle search for such things:

PS2 to XBox
PS2 to GameCube

Again, without having tested that ourselves, we’re going solely on the feature list of this item. It does appear that the item will work on the XBox and GameCube with a proper converter, though.

Bahhh the PS2 is going to be replaced before X-mas anyways. Anyone who has one now I am sure has controllers or they are using it as a bookend.

Not to mention the fact that you almost have to have your PS2 hooked up at or in front of a table that you can sit at with this controller, because two people can’t put it in eachother’s laps.

I guess you could have a 3rd roomate on hands and knees with the joystick on his/her back while the other two sit at a couch. Or perhaps a coffee table would work (lots of bending over).

Only real use I see for this is to run Unix and Mame on your PS2 and build a cabinet and make your own arcade machine. After buying this and two converters for xbox or PC or GC you could probably find a similar stick for full price for whatever system you want it on.

–Vae
p.s. The maker of this stick is actually selling arcade guns for $0.00

#9

#10

would anyone actually use this?


#11

odd


#12

Why not for Xbox? Huh Woot? How come? Man… You guys hate me, dont you?


#13

Although may look nice, it’s often very cumbersome for two players to use one controller at the same time. One jerks left, one jerks right, then all heck breaks loose. Think before you buy this one…
