Does a PS2 to PS3 Adapter Work With an Xbox360

If you want to use your PS2 controller with your PS3 gaming system, you can do so because both systems are manufactured by Sony and they're designed to be compatible. Unfortunately, a PS2 to PS3 adapter won’t work with an Xbox 360, which uses an IBM PowerPC processor and an incompatible wireless controller. The PS2-to-PS3 adapter is specifically designed for PS3 gaming consoles.


 A PS2-to-PS3 controller adapter is an accessory that allows you to use a PS2 controller on a PS3 gaming system. These adapters work with a variety of PS2 controllers including Dualshock 2, wireless controllers and guitars for "Guitar Hero." The adapter has two ports. The USB port connects to one of the four USB ports on the gaming console, and the other port connects to the PS2 controller.


 The PS2-to-PS3 adapter is not compatible with Xbox 360 systems because the consoles are built around two entirely different specifications. In addition, an Xbox 360 cannot read PS3 gaming discs because they're not compatible. PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers are incompatible as well and use two separate connectors.

 Several third-party vendors sell PS2-to-PS3 adapters. Some of these products may or may not be compatible with the games on which you’d like to use them. For example, an adapter might not be compatible with all versions of "Guitar Hero." Before purchasing an adapter, refer to the product specifications for compatibility information.


 Although a PS2-to-PS3 adapter won’t work on an Xbox 360 gaming system, most game titles can be purchased for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. You'll need to buy additional discs to play your PS games on the Xbox 360 console.
