Can I use two wired controllers with the PS3 ?

3 replies 158 views Edited Apr 9, 2013

Can I use two wired controllers with the PS3 ?  I finally bought a 2nd controller for the system and can't see another USB port to connect it to.  Does the PS3 only support one wired controller and the rest have to be wireless ?

What type of PS3 do you have? I have a 'Slim' with two USB ports.

You could use the PS2 4 player adapter, and only use 1 USb port.

 

All PS3's have at least 2 USB ports, right beside each other on the front left corner.

 

Check again.

 

You just bought a wired controller?  I didnt think they made them anymore, except the third party ones.
