Being 45% smaller original PlayStation, Sony retains the form factor of original PlayStation for PlayStation Classic.

What? 2-standard controllers? Where are the Dual Shock Analog Controllers?

Short answer is no. At least not at the moment. As of now, these are the facts that I know:

  • Sony doesn’t have the intention to sell Dual Shock Analog Controller. Nowhere in Sony’s website selling the original PlayStation Dual Shock Analog Controller.
  • PlayStation Classic controller ports are USB ports. They are not the same like original PlayStation 1 controller port.

Based on that facts above, likely the PlayStation Classic may have hardware limitation that prevents it to use the Dual Shock Analog Controller properly.

Will the PlayStation Controller to PC USB port adapter works for PlayStation Classic?

Another soon-to-be popular question, will the PlayStation Classic controllers’ USB port works with PlayStation to USB adapter? Which will enable us to use original PlayStation 1 or PlayStation 2 Dual Shock Controller and convert it to USB.

This is what I’m talking about (link in Amazon).

I’ve been using this adapter to play games on my PC (PC games or emulators) since PlayStation controller is one of the best controller ever made.

Shortly we’ll know if PlayStation port to USB port adapter works for PlayStation Classic. If it’s indeed working, then good news, the Dual Shock Analog Controller can be used on PlayStation Classic, though again the vibration function may not be working at all.

Till then, cheers!
