Went to go play some of my PS2 games.

Only to find that none of my PS2 controllers worked. I had 3. One that doesn't work at all, one that's analogs don't work or up button, and another that's control pad didn't work at all. Also, the cable that would plug it into the TV barely worked. I don't know, should I buy a gamestop refurbished one, or just try getting a new controller?

Weird. Same here with one of my 2 PS2 controllers. Analog wouldn't work, neither would the UP button on the d-pad.

As a former GameStop employee, BUY NEW! Some of the stuff that comes in there is already broken or disgusting. Spend the extra money to have it new that no one else has ever used. You will thank me. Trust me on this. Accessories like controllers, headsets etc. buy them new.

Weird, my PS2 controller's work just fine. Shame on you TC for not taking care of your stuff.

Don't trust this guy, he's a former GameStop employee.

Check out Amazon for new controllers, if they don't have any cheap ones, a local department store might still have new ones.


While you're on Amazon, look into component cables for the PS2, it makes a nice difference that will make you appreciate your PS2 games all over again.

I've found that the more recent Dual Shock 2 controllers from Sony tend to go bad. The electronics seem to stop working partially or in full. In the meantime, the DS2 I got with my original fat many years ago is still chugging along. Need to open it up again to unstick the left joystick, but everything else is fine.

I got a GameStop PS2 controller a while back and it's a pretty good deal for $10.

they're only $20 at walmart, if they still carry them.

Oh, yeah. The PS2 board is still alive and kicking. It might be better in the future to post PS2 related posts there.

I'm usually the first person to defend GameStop, but a few months ago I bought used PS2 controllers. The first one simply didn't work at all, the second had an X button that stuck every time it was pressed in, and the third one.. worked like a charm and felt like it was taken out of it's original packaging and immediately traded to GameStop.

But still.
