I made a thread on this, but didn't get any good answers, and I found this thread and though the try here.
I just got my 60GB PS3, and I was going to get the adpaters so I can play DDR and for some extra controllers for my PS3. There are two I'm looking at.
This one I found for $15 and comes with the Memory card adapter, as well as leds for the controller assigner. It also makes the Analog button into a PS button.
This one on the other hand has two ports so I can hook up both my dance pads and it only cost $7. No controller assiging lights, but not a huge problem. I'm not sure how well the controllers work with this.
It's hard to find reviews on these things, and I want to know what's worth it. I've read that rumble doesn't work with these for some reason. I've singled them down to these two, which should I get? Does anyone know anything about these USB adapters and how they work on the PS3?
Also, I want to know I buy the single one, will the official multitap work with it?

I will add in my two cents to help out this thread (and hoping others will join in).
Bought an adapter from eforcity.com for $6 shipped: http://www.eforcity.com/dsonps23ad01.html?int=efse
It has no PS button and lacks rumble (in both PS3 and PS2 games).
However, it has so far proven to work perfectly with MOST PS3 games. I say MOST because out of all the games I have (library of 45), so far, the ones I have tried with it that haven't fully functioned have been Resistance 2. In regards to what doesn't work, it is pretty much the L2/R2 triggers. Funny thing is, they work perfectly in the beta (which I decided to keep all this time) but not in the retail game.
I have yet to try out LittleBigPlanet but I fear it may or may not work. It seems most newer released titles (especially first party w/ multiplayer) have issues with it, mainly the R2/L2 support.
Other than that, it works perfectly with all PS2 games and most PS3 games like Resistance 1, Army of Two, Unreal, etc. etc.
(I have no idea about DDR/Guitar Hero/other peripheral support as I have only tried it with regular games).
I would say it's a great buy besides the L2/R2 support that I just discovered from only Resistance 2. If anyone knows of an adapter that supports it and other PS3 titles be sure to post it up in this thread so me and others can know.

I've got an ancient PS1 arcade stick that I love. I've been playing fighting games and such with it for well over 10 years and it works and feels great. I also have this old cheapo "PSX JOYBOX" usb converter. It works OK with the PS3 - mostly. The main things that bother me are: lack of PS button, and the joystick motions are being converted to analog input for the PS3. Is there any way to get it to send the arcade stick movement as D-PAD presses? Failing that, is there another converter I could purchase that would send the joystick as d-pad, and also has a PS button?
Let me know, thanks!

I'm asking the same thing as the guy above me. I have a stick that I used on the ps2 and would like to continue using it on the ps3. Is there any converter that is best for this? So as to avoid laggy inputs or something.
