This wireless (2.4 GHz) Playstation 2 controller is fully compatible with the Playstation 2. The controller is powered by 3x AAA batteries (not included). This product is not made by Sony but delivers comparable performance to the original DualShock 2 controller from Sony. Since the pinout of this controller has been known for some time, various libraries have now been published for the Arduino, and Cytron has also released modules for a quick start. This means that this controller can also be used for real-life gaming, such as driving a robot car or drone.
