    [UnAnswered] PS1 Controllers on PS3 via Adapter?

    I just realized that my old Playstation controllers do not have "Dual Shock 2" inscribed on it. so I would think it's safe to assume that I have PS1 controllers. What I'm curious to know, can they still be used with the PS3 via the USB adapter?

    I don't see any reason why not... after all, PS1 and PS2 controllers were universally compatible with both consoles...

    I guess the best way would be to try it out

    It will work fine but your gonna need those nice little sticks for 90% of things.

    Remember, the 2nd generation PS1 controllers had analogue sticks, but no DualShock branding on them - I just checked on one of mine

    PS1 controller should work with the USB, but I can't confirm. Even if it works, you won't be able to play most PS2 games. I remember a lot of games wouldn't work with standard PS1 controllers, even if there were the 2 sticks. This apply too for Sony's PS1 controllers.

    Good luck

    It shouldn't. Anyway, on PS2.... I know MGS3 is kinda pressure sensitive, and that feature was only on PS2 Dualshock2 controllers, and not PS1 ones.
