Use an Xbox 360 controller on the PS3 with the XCM Crossbattle Adapter 2.0

I recently picked up this XCM Crossbattle Adapter 2.0 which allows you to use a 360 controller on a ps3. Thus far I’ve only tested it with the stock 360 wired controller (it has to be wired, doesn’t work with the wireless) and the Capcom 360 Super Street Fighter 4 fight pad. Both work flawlessly. I have read reports of atleast 1 Arcade stick not working, but I haven’t tried that for myself (being that I don’t own an arcade stick).

This video is a 10 minute demo and review of the device I made earlier today. It could be summed up in 5 seconds by saying “it works” but if you’ve listened to the show you know I like to listen to myself talk.

Bottom line for the devices are:

Crossbattle 1.0 = $25 to $30 shipped. It’s just a button to button converter (L1 = left bumper, L2= left trigger, etc etc) and it includes rumble support. There are no options for maping the six axis to either of the sticks or to change any of the buttons. It does have turbo switches for any of the buttons. Whoopeee!

Crossbattle 2.0 = $80-$90 shipped (I got it for $80 shipped from Does everything the 1.0 does but also includes options to remap all of the buttons, to map the six axis controls to one of sticks and you can even swap the analog sticks if you’re left handed or just plain weird. It also has a pretty blue light. Whether these options are worth an extra $50 is probably on a per user basis. They were for me but they may not be for you.

And here is the link to the super in depth button lag test.

If you have any questions ask here or on youtube and I will answer. Promise.
