Locked: I got my Saturn pad working on PS3!!!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I got my Saturn pad working on PS3!!!

I can't play any 2D fighting games without a saturn pad...expecially street fighter. And I know for a fact there are a lot of people like me...

Therefore, I was looking for the PS2 version of the saturn pad for a long long time time. They pop up on ebay every few weeks for 150 bucks a pop...

Ever since I got a PS3 2 weeks ago, this has beed on my mind...and I thought there must be an easier and cheaper way. Well I am proud to say that I got my saturn pad working on a ps3.

I used the folowing items. 

 

1 Sega Saturn Pad.

 

This plugs in to Magic Box for xbox (Saturn, PS2, Dreamcast converter for xbox). I bought this to play street fighter anniversary on the original xbox

 

 

Now this plugs in to the Xbox to PS2 converter called XP Joybox I recieved last week form Play-Asia.

And this finally plugs in to the PS2 to PS3 converter that I got when I got my ps3.

 

And it works perfectly. Mortal Komabt 2...PS2 street fighter anniversary all work amazingly. Technically this works on a ps2 as well without the PS2 to PS3 converter.

All I can say is that you're all screwed now when SF2 HD and SF4 come out and you have to play me. :)

I actually saw the Capcom fighting pads for the PS2 at a gaming store (not a chain one), but I don't know how much they go for online.

I'm assuming your method doesn't need drivers.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

Thats pretty ingenious.



@LordTheNightKnight

Yeah I bought the Akuma pad for ps2 and Guile pad for xbox. They SUCK!!! :)

No drivers or anything like that...plug and play.

I already had it working on the 360...through another F'd up method... lol



Going through all those adapters though is there any input lag? Because that would make a fast paced fighting game unplayable.

So there are actual Saturn pads made to plug into the PS2?

@azrm2k

No Lag what so ever. I was amazed it worked hence why I posted it here. I've bought countless PS2 to xbox/Gamecube adapter that had lots of lag before so this caught me off gurad...

@LordTheNightKnight

Yeah Sega made official saturn pads for PS2 and PC back in 2003 based on popular demand. Their calculations for the demand of this pad turned out to be way off as they were sold out within a month... I'm still waiting for the second shipment...lol.



brill, now i know who not to challenge on street fighter HD



that is a LOT of adapters



cool and clever, didnt even know you could get thoose sorts of adapters.
