    I'm curious, why is it you would want to do this?

    This way I can take my playstation games and run them on the computer. Why not just use the playstation? Well, I'm on the computer much more than I used to be and it sounded like an interesting idea to figure out. So far it works great.

    Not to mention I consider the Playstation Dual-Shock controller to be one of the best designed of all the video game systems I've owned. It beats most PC controllers I've used IMO.
