PS2 controller thing
Hi I saw this youtube video of this person using a dualshock 3 controller and when I check the game.co.uk website and look for that controller it says it is for only ps3 so I want to know if it work on ps2 so please can you answer my question.
I don't have a PS3 controller to test it with, but I don't think it's possible. First of all, they both use differnet type of connectors. The PS3 uses USB and the PS2 uses it's own custom connection plug. Also, after doing some basic searching in google, the PS3 controller uses blue-tooth, which the PS2 definitely doesn't support. So even if you made a PS2 plug to USB adapter, I don't think it would work.
what were they using it on ? you did not say... there are drivers around that will let you use a PS3 controller on a PC..

You didnt give a link to the video, so we dont know what that PS3 controller is being use on. It could be a 'shell' someone modified with the PS2 controller 'guts' for all anyone knows.
Well this is the link for the video:
It says he uses a dualshock 3 controller.
This controller works for PS2/PS2 and PC. More details about this controller here and someone's personal review here.
Thats one of those multi-console controllers, labeled as dual Shock 3, but its not an authentic DUALSHOCKŪ3 Wireless Controller.
Its a "PS2" controller with adapters/convertors to use in a PS3 and PC, but it is not a "PS3" Controller.
Looks better than the official wireless Katana accessories one what with the proper separated d-pad
