PS2 to Xbox 360 controller converter

Controller Converter - XFPS 360 for the Xbox 360 - allowing USB and Playstation 2 controllers to be used on the Xbox360.Excellent news. The XFPS360 converter will allow just about any Playstation 2 compatible controller to work on an Xbox 360. I've tested out with a number of one handed controllers, including the ASCII Grip V2, HORI Super Robot Wars Controller and HORI Separate Controller, and could find no fault.

The only downside is the high-price of this adapter (around £40) and the need for a wired Xbox 360 controller to be connected simultaneously. However - it's a big deal, and genuinely great news accessibility wise.

    Sorry for being almost a year late, but will this work with the wireless Guitar Hero III Guitar controller? I am getting a 360, and would like to get GHIII for online play, but I don't want to fork out a load of money for another guitar as well. Thanks!

    Sorry - I don't honestly know. Might be a bit risky for you to gamble on this.

    Will it also work with original PS2 controllers?  

  4. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Yes - you can use almost any Playstation 2 controller on an Xbox 360 using this adapter (with the essential wired Xbox 360 controller attached).

    Hi so were does the wired xbox360 controler come into play with all of this? I mean surely you just plug the usb into the console and then run the PS2 controller from the adapter? How does it work?

    Cheers

    Microsoft didn't want anyone connecting non-approved controllers to the Xbox 360, so added some encryption circuitry to make life difficult for third party hard-ware developers. Connecting an officially sanctioned controller gets around this issue. It is essential.

    I would love to know if the Thrustmaster freestyler motor bike handlebars for either the ps2 or pc would work with this converter for the xbox 360 Moto Gp 2006/7 please this would be a must have reply for thousends of moto gp xbox 360 fans - thank you.

    Sorry I don't have this controller so can't tell you. It's worth knowing though - as not all controllers work perfectly. My "C-SID" Ultimarc iPac based controllers work 100% - and all the one handed controllers I support work 100% too. I've tried others that give a "controller disconnected" message from time to time - which is annoying.

    Hi, just wondering if you tested the Logitech Driving Force GT Wheel for the PS2/PS3 with this adapter?

    Thanks!  

  10. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Not tried it.

    If you followed the links from the post to the Xbox 360 adapters section - you'll end up at Play Asia:

    do you know if any ps2 dancepads work with this?  

  14. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    I would assume that they will connect and play to a degree - but I don't know if they will be mapped 100% accurately. (up, down, left, right should be correct - but don't know about shape buttons).

    Hi, like you say its a bit pricey. Is there a cheaper converter available for ps2 to 360? Thanks.  

  16. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Not that I'm aware of. Wish there was though. See eBay for the best prices.

    if i plug the converter to a PC, will it work, i mean, will i be able to play games as gears of war or crysis (only for xbox 360 gamepads) with ps2 gamepads??  

  18. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Very unlikely.  

  19. # Anonymous Anonymous

    Would a third party PS3 Controllers work for XBOX360? I have a specific one that I've been using for a very long time and I hate going back to the XBOX360's bulky controller.  

  20. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Almost definitely not at this stage. Sorry!  

  21. # Blogger Patrick

    Hello,
    do you know whether use of multiple ps2 controllers will work through the connection of a multi-tap?
    thanks

    Sorry - I don't know.

    Do you know if it workswith ps2 arcade sticks? Any lag?  

  24. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Yes they'll work - but I feel that there's a tiny bit of lag that might effect hardcore gamers but most people wouldn't notice.

    This invention looks great but I had a question. You mentioned needing an XBox 360 controller connected to connect to your PS2 controller: I wondered if a wireless XBox 360 controller would work without the connection? I needed to know if there was a sensor or something on it for it to connect.  

  26. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    See above - wired controller is essential. You can't use a wireless controller to get around the issues.  

  27. # Anonymous TonyB.

    will this work with an original ps1 namco arcade stick??  

  28. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Yes - it should do. I've had one working in the past. Obviously it's limited by its lack of analogue functionality.  

  29. # Anonymous nevermore285

    Can you still use a microphone/headset with this, like to use xbox live?  

  30. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Should be fine, as the Xbox 360 controller remains fully functioning. However, I've not tested headphones.

    Will PC controllers work with the Xbox 360 using this?

    I'm thinking of buying a PC arcade-style trackball to use with my Xbox 360.  

  32. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Many PC controllers will work, but in a basic way. If the controller makes use of an advanced driver this may pose compatibility problems. I know basic mice with a PS/2 (or USB to PS/2 converter) work well.

    does this work with access controller so it can be used with xbox360? thanks  

  34. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    Not sure. Got a feeling it won't, but don't have one here to test anymore. Recommend posting for help here http://www.gamebase.info/forum.html  

  35. # Blogger OneSwitch.org.uk

    This one works for the Acess Controller: http://switchgaming.blogspot.com/2011/05/ps2-to-ps3-converter-last-one-standing.html
