Playstation 2 Dualshock Controller On PC? by haibe(m): 10:34pm On Jan 29, 2015
Hey guys, I just want to find out if it's possible to play games with playstation 2 Dualshock 2 controller on PC.. I tried it today but it didn't work, so is there any work around to be able to use this. I tried it on PES 15.

PS: I prefer using PS 2 pads than all these fake pc pads sold around

I bought jc tech dual shock-pad in 2008 for two player games. it's still working.

in 2012 I saw one transparent 'Microsoft ' pad single player., so I bought it. this one is beautiful.

I think the other one I bought in 2008 was 1700 while this one I bought in 2012 was 1,200

Get a DualShock 4 controller, it works flawlessly and you can used it wirelessly if your PC is Bluetooth enabled.

Yeah I just ordered for one on Konga. Anyway maybe you can find one of the one's shadowgwalker is referring to. My experience with these other USB pads hasn't been very good that's why I am going for the Xbox controller.

Thanks a lot guys, I got my dualshock 2 to work grin. The fault came from the initial converter I was using as it wasn't for pc I guess. So i changed it to the blue one you see in the pic below.

Here's a screenshot of how things are now in place.

Nice one. I like that it is dual controllers, easy to do versus mode games. Where did you get the converter?

When I returned the controller to the seller, he said there is no reason to return it because the fault is from the converter and not the controller. So he said he will get one suitable for pc. He got it at computer village, ikeja.

I wish I could have had one. Well I guess my Xbox controller will have to do.

Just took delivery of my Xbox controller and it works like a charm. Had to download drivers though. Can't wait to try Dragon Age Inquisition, Devil May Cry, Arkham City with this baby.
