I know we had this discussion a few months ago, but I couldn't find it. Someone has told me several times there is an easy USB type thingy you can get from radioshack to do this-if anyone knows what its called or whatever could you please let me know! Thanks.

One of them is called the Kiky Joy.  I don't know which one Radio Shack has.

At any rate, pretty much all you do is hook it up and hook your PS2 controller into it.  Granted, you can get a PS2 style PC controller for about $15 (Walmart, other places).

if you plan on playing dance-type games with PS dancepads (like StepMania), the Radioshack adapter is not a good choice.  you can't hit two directions simultaneously.

Sure, head over to Lik-Sang where you can find both DC->USB and Xbox->USB.

Oh, and General, as much as I like the Dreamcast the Saturn was way better.

Well i have no plans to bring back the saturn, even tho you just gave me a few ideas on some games.

Saturn was good, but better then dreamcast? Nah i wouldnt say that, because the saturn didnt have alot of games, the dreamcast has around over 250 games i think. I do however want another saturn , so i can playGuardian Heroes which is my fav game, and i really enjoy the clock work knight demo's and i completed shining force 3 2 times, that might be the best RPG i ever played.

I will go out sometime next week and try to pick a saturn up for 20 bucks and a few games, like die hard arcade, street fighter puzzle and others. Saturn needed more good racers tho, but the few they had was great, like:

Cyber Speedway, The Need for Speed , Impact Racing

and i always wanted to play WSB on saturn, the game was hella fun on the demo, and i cant forget High Velocity  and damn, NBA action 98 is cool too.....

I might go out sooner and try to find one, i'm all hype up now.  biggrin

Oh yea dont forget Dave's Page in google, for a long list of saturn games and saturn reviews.

I have a had a PC magic box for years and it works great. It allows you to connect PS2, Saturn, and DC controllers to your PC via usb.

The japanese Saturn pad is my default PC game controller. The PS2 controller occassionally sees some action if I am doing PSX emulation or playing something that requires the analog sticks.

I have no idea why anyone would use the DC conntector on it unless they had one of the green and white dreamcast arcade sticks. The dreamcast had the worst controller ever.
