How to wire your PlayStation 2 controller with a PS2 cable
A Sony Playstation 2 controller is one of the coolest accessories in the gaming world, but you might not be able to find a real-world PS2-to-PS4 cable that you can actually use.
Sony’s website for the PS2 controller is missing the cable and it’s possible you’re out of luck.
Luckily, there’s a few options you can try to wire the PSX-based controller in the wild.
If you’re a PlayStation 4 owner, this article will walk you through the process of hooking up the PS4 controller to your PS2.
If you’re going to get a PSX controller for yourself, we highly recommend getting one with a connector that’s compatible with both the PS1 and PS2 consoles.
We’ve got the full list of compatible connectors for both consoles below.
For the uninitiated, a PS1 controller connects to the PS button, while a PS3 controller connects with the PS and M buttons.
The PSX is compatible with PS1 controllers, so if you’re looking to get one for yourself you’re better off looking elsewhere.
If a PSx-compatible PS2 controllers aren’t around, you can still use the same cable you already have on your PS1 or PS2, but with the added benefit of a cable that’s much thinner than your regular PS2 cables.
This means you can use the cable to wire a PlayStation 2 PS1 PSX, PS2 PSX and a PS4 gamepad together.
This cable is made of a thin flexible plastic, but it’s also compatible with the standard PSX connector.
This is the cable that comes with your PSX.
If the cable doesn’t fit your particular PSX version, you could try to solder a replacement.
The cable we’ve been able to use to wire up the PlayStation 2 is a PS-X3 adapter, so you could use it to wire both PSX controllers together as well.
For this article, we’re going only to cover the PS-XL cable.
For the PSXL cable, we’ve tested and confirmed that it is compatible.
But if you have a PSXL controller that doesn’t have the proper cable, you’re able to easily replace it with a cheaper PSX cable that will work.
Here’s the full, official list of PS-3, PS-2, and PSX connectors available.
This is the PS5 adapter that comes pre-installed with the PlayStation 4, PS3, and PSP games.
We’ll be using it to get wired up for this article.
We tested it and found it to be a very flexible cable.
It’s the perfect option for the new PS4 Pro, and the PS3 Pro controller, but if you can’t find a cheap PSX adapter, this might work just fine for you.
The PS3 and PS3 Dual Controller Adapter for PS4 and PS4 Slim are the only adapters we’ve found that work with the original PS3 controllers.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned with the new consoles, it’s that it’s easy to get the old controllers to work on the new ones.
The Dual Controller adapter is available for purchase at Best Buy for around $29.99, and it connects directly to the original PlayStation 3 controller.
It’s important to note that the PSx adapter does not connect to the PlayStation 3 controllers, but we were able to wire it up to the new controller.
This allows you to use the old PS3 to play new PSX games.
This adapter has no wires attached to it, and is a simple and sturdy cable.
We can use this to wire all the PSVita controllers together and it doesn’t require much soldering.
This adapter is made for the Vita, so it’s compatible for PS Vita.
This cable connects directly with the Playstation 2 PSX gamepad.
If your PSx is PS1, this is the right cable to go with your console.
If not, you’ll need to find an adapter that is compatible for the old console.
We recommend the PSvita adapter for PS2 and PS Vita, but other adapters are possible.
If an adapter doesn’t work for you, this may work for your PS3.
If your PS-1 controller doesn’t support a PSVitamix gamepad, you might want to consider a PS5 gamepad adapter.
This works with both PS1 games and PSVits, and has the same cables and connectors as the Dual Controller.
It comes with the same connectors as all the other adapters we tested.
The PlayStation 3-4 Adapter is also compatible for both PS3 games and the Dual.
This gamepad cable is a little different than the Dual, as it has no cable at all attached to the connector.
It doesn’t need soldering, but can be tricky to use.
If this is your first time trying out an adapter, we recommend using the PSi-3 adapter for the original controllers.
We tested this adapter with all the original
