Retro Controller Adapters

Controller Adapters / Controller Converters.

Many game controllers designed for a specific games machine can be adapted to work on another by attaching a converter. For instance, the adapter pictured above allows Playstation 2 compatible controllers to work on a Sega Saturn games console.

Many of these adapters are Playstation one and PS2 controller compatible. There are a huge range of second hand controllers possible to connect in this way including a range of one-handed controllers and arcade sticks. It is also sometimes possible to daisy-chain adapters to get an even wider range. Sometimes not though.
