Find A Slightly Higher Priced Option – PS2-PS3 Controller Adapter Cable Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The unit is priced well, and the build quality is certainly good. It will connect with ease to the PS3 and the controller plug fits tight too.
Cons:
The adapter only works some of the time. The PS3 has assigned controller spots, and there is no way to assign this adapter, because PS2 controllers lack the "Playstation" button in the middle of the controller. Not the adapters fault by any means. It did work for me on occasion.
Other:
If there was a way to assign the controller, this would be a fantastic option. I have 4 PS2 controllers, and only 2 PS3 controllers. It would be nice to not have to buy more controllers if this system would work all the time. Also, I found the controller worked most of the time while it was the only controller available to the PS3.
Bottomline:
Buy the adapter. It doesn't cost a lot to investigate yourself.
