Hmm... and here I was thinking all this time you could already use most USB controllers with the PS3/2. What you should be making a big deal about is how expensive that chat pad imitator costs. Dang, $50 for the ability to type where MS only charges $30 for the same ability.

Does it have support for the wireless PC usb dongle?
Does the "PS" button work?
Does it add a sixaxis motion sensor?

Tough I don't think I need to have a X360 controller anymore as I bought Giotek real triggers for my controllers. Loss of motion sensing is not worth it IMO

That'd be nice, but I guess they don't have that kind of driver support.

I think both keypads are a waste, but I'm betting the touch-sensitive keys, built-in Bluetooth, and battery make it a bit more expensive to manufacture. I haven't encountered a situation where I'd prefer not using my full-sized keyboard. Similarly, I haven't yet encountered a situation where I'd prefer using the 360 controller.

I was pretty sure someone once told me USB controllers worked with those systems. I never tried because I only owned a PS2 for two weeks before returning it, and I got a great employee deal on PS3 controllers when I used to work retail. But you're both right, why use a controller made for a different system on any platform? I understand being comfortable with one, but controllers now days have special functions for the system they are made for. A better project might be getting the PS3 controller (and other accessories) to work with other standard bluetooth devices.

hey all

does anyone know if you could use this adaptor with the XBOX 360 wireless Windows PC adapter and then use a xbox360 wireless controller?

IMO giving up sixaxis support is fine as i dont play any games on my PS3 (just movies) because of the PS3 controller and analog stick location

.... and um.... im guessing more people are *use* to the feel of there ps2 controller over there 360 controller....


..... and um.....

all personal preference i say...
