Video: PS2 Controller Hacked, Used to Control PSP Console 550°
April 24, 2010 // 11:04 pm - Recently TokyoDrift hacked a PlayStation 2 controller and built an adapter that allows you to connect the PS2 gamepad to a Sony PSP console to control it.

For those curious, this adapter didn't require any hardware alteration to the PSP or the PS2 controller, as a plug-in was used on the PSP Firmware side of things.

The adapter then makes use of video out and PS2 controller extension cables, along with an ATmega8 microcontroller to handle the signals between the two devices.

Cheap PS2 to PS3 Guitar Hero 3 Adapter Arrives 550°
April 12, 2010 // 8:55 pm - I did this cheap PS2 to PS3 Guitar Hero 3 adapter a few months back, but only about a month after I bought my PS3.

So, I bought my ps3, with GH3+guitar. I made a custom PS2 guitar a while back so I thought it would be nice to use with the PS3. A cheapoo PS2-usb adapter worked with the controllers, but not with the guitar.

To not start from scratch, I found a PS2-USB adaper at http://vusb.wikidot.com/projects2usb but needed some "finetune" to work as a guitar.

First: mine only support one controller/adapter

Second: the HID descriptor had to be...

March 5, 2010 // 7:26 pm - Sony's PlayStation 2 console turns ten years old today (yesterday in some parts of the world) and was first shown at a Japanese event in 1999.

Launch titles were limited, with Ridge Racer 5 and Street Fighter EX3 standing out. The machine went on to launch later that year in both the US and EU, hitting on October 26 and November 24 respectively.

To quote: "Ten years ago today on March 5th, 2000, Sony released the first version of the PlayStation 2 in Japan, which means the game-console is essentially turning 10 years old today.

The PS2 was later released...

PS2 iSO Image Discovered on PS3 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast Disc 1000°
January 15, 2010 // 11:06 pm - Today I have discovered a PS2 iSO image of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 that is included on the PS3 Dragon Ball: Raging Blast game disc.

A picture of it is below, SLUS-21441 that also includes a BIN.DAT dummy file and it's a PS2 master disc image... meaning it will run on a TEST unit only, or anyone who has a mod-chip of course.

It is fine to mount on the PC or burn, but unfortunately I do not have a PS2 to test it out on.

If anyone also has this PlayStation 3 title and some freetime, it is perhaps worth it to examine the files from it!
