No PS2 controller port... help
« on: 12:50 PM - 11/15/09 »
Hey guys,

I'm sorry if this info is someplace i missed. I checked on the forums and didnt find anything.

I have a PS3 but i do not have a PS2 controller port on it. Everything i checked seems to require the port for the cable...

I was wonderng what my options were, if at all possible, to get a xim working. I definately want to use a XIM, so what do i need to buy to make it work smoothly othe than a different PS3..

Thanks for the recommendations in advance

Thanks for the prompt response mist4fun. You're quicker than me on the reply! :)

Pardon my ignorance, i just want to be sure before i go through with the order. So if i understood correctly, this item for sale would cover everything that i require:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/XIM-FOR-PS3-KEYBOARD-MOUSE-PS2-TO-PS3-ADAPTER-RATEUP_W0QQitemZ330373339761QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVideo_Games_Accessories?hash=item4cebc91a71

If that is the case, i will go through with the order unless you or anyone else knows of a place that i can buy which would help support this site. I clicked on the shop but no items are for sale...

Thanks alot mist, i really thought i would have needed a diff PS3.

Yes that is exactly what you need. XIM1 is not officially sold on this site. There are a few members here that build them and sell them, but it looks like they are out of stock. I would go ahead with the purchase.
