Using PS2 Controllers on Xbox 360 Slim

Hi!

I, and a large handful of others, find the Xbox 360 Controller D-Pad to be absolutely abysmal for use in fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. I researched around online and found a solution, a controller adapter. I came across this piece of hardware:

(Keep in mind: I am NOT interested in buying third-party controllers or the transforming D-Pad controller)

Here's my situation: I own one Xbox 360 WIRELESS controller and 2 PS2 Dualshock controllers. After reading some reviews of the controller adapter above, it seems that it's required to have a WIRED Xbox 360 controller plugged in to use a PS2 controller. Now, obviously this is a problem because my controller is wireless.


So my question is, if I bought a Play & Charge Kit for my Xbox 360 controller and plugged it directly into the controller, then plugged that into the adapter, would my PS2 controller work?

    No, the play and charge kit does not make a wireless controller a wired one, it just charges it if you have a rechargable battery. You need a wired controller.

    Thanks for your reply— would a cheaper wired controller like this rock candy function the same way?

  3. It should. It really just uses the controller to "authenticate" that a real controller has been plugged in, then from there it can send the commands needed.
