hey guys, do u know if its possible to get a ps controller and modd it to connect it into a usb port. I was looking online and they have adapters for it but I will like to save some money by doing it myself. I know that toidiochysp was able to mod his xbox controller to use with his xbox pc mod. If anyone has any info at all let me know. Thanks.

wont work, Play station controllers use a different interface. while Xbox controllers are just USB controllers and Hubs, yeah you head me right, and soon i will have a mod that will let me plug my USB flash drive into my Xbox controller :)

Well, yes - unlike XBOX - the PS controler requires wiring up a few resistors and a circuit. Mine is on a PCB with three resistors - although 1 is for the led I suspect.

Just buy the $10 one as RS.

The adapter kit they sell on Ebay works pretty good, I've used it a few times, gave it to my brother's best friend so he could use it for FF X!
