    Sponsored Links
    Why did they have to make it so that you have to press the PS button when playing a ps2 game on the ps3?

    WHY?

    i got a ps2 to ps3 controller adapter went to gamestop and got some good oldies for ps2.

    got home, put in a ps2 game pluged in the ps2 controller and ...
    NOTHING.

    i couldent play the ps2 game with my dualshock2.

    FUDGE.

    why did sony do this?

    Well at least you found out that way. I bought Guitar Hero II before I found out you couldnt hook up PS2 controllers. And since I bought it from Circuit City I couldnt get a refund so I had to sell it on eBay. Lesson learned.

    Sony will be fixing this in May when they release their PS2-to-PS3 adapter. After all, how would Sony make money if you could just buy any old adapter and use it on the PS3?

    The nyko ps2-to-usb adapter has already claimed to fix this, and nyko has finally updated their website with information. They specifically mention guitars working with guitar hero.

    So a PS2 controller connected to a PS3 through an adapter only works with PS3 games and not PS2 games. That's pretty backwards lol
