Motivation and Purchase
For a lot of people, including me, playing video games on older consoles still great fun, as large or sometimes even higher than in modern consoles. But using controls Wired, usually short, It is something that I have really missed.
Back in the child times I pulled the console to near me, He played sitting on the floor, care and wires hung all the time. But today I prefer the comfort of the couch, preferably in the wireless path. Including already purchased Extenders not to be limited to wires and stretched.
The launch of Wireless 8BitDo drivers for the Super Nintendo, along with the Retro Receivers SNES, They began to change this scenario. The Super Nintendo It was my first classic console to gain wireless controllers.
I still have no solution to the Atari 2600, I continue using it with good old original joysticks CX40 with Extenders. But for the Playstation One I discovered some time ago that there is a perfect solution: the Adaptador de Controle Playstation PS3/PS4 para PS2/PS1/PC Brook Game Controller Super Converters Magic Box P2-BL.
This is an even better solution than the other consoles, it is not a third party controller, the Dualshock 4 It is the natural evolution of the first Dualshock. The Dualshock It is pretty much the proprietor's Dualshock 4, bringing improvements and being wireless.
The Magic Box P2-BL It is not necessarily cheap, then stayed in my wishlist for a while. But last month I decided to finally buy it. I opted for the buying on AliExpress because it was the best value we found.

Despite packing Adaptador de Controle Playstation PS3/PS4 para PS2/PS1/PC Brook Game Controller Super Converters Magic Box P2-BL not to mention the first Playstation, drivers of Playtation 2 They are compatible with the Playstation 1, so I did not have any problem in making Magic Box P2-BL work on my Playstation One.
Play with Dualshock 4 on the Playstation One is great. I tested various types of games and everything worked perfectly: buttons, d-pad, joysticks analógicos, vibration, etc. I did not notice any lag. Check out my recent videos gameplay Playstation One I've ever played with Dualshock 4:
recently connected the Magic Box P2-BL to do the firmware update and the update was very quiet. Just put the key in the position XID, and connect the device to the PC with the button to enter the update mode. With the software provided by Brook I did the upgrade in a few seconds.
Took the opportunity to check how is the button mapping on PC. On Windows test with Dualshock 4 I noticed that both D-pad and analog joystick are mapped as directional analog. Square, triangle, X, Circle, L1, L2, R1, R2, Share Options and behave like 10 digital buttons. The second analog, L3 and R3 are inoperative. It's weird, for connecting the Dualshock 4 directly in Windows it is identified separately and properly. Perhaps in games that support the XInput Magic Box P2-BL identifies all resources.
Note I did not do tests with the Playstation 2 not com o Playstation Classic why not have the. Also I did tests with the Dualshock 3, therefore I do not intend to use them with the Magic Box P2-BL. Let also do more tests with PCs, because Dualshock 4 It connects via Bluetooth directly on Windows PCs, and the Dualshock 3 I also have no interest to use the PC. Por fim, also I did tests with alternative controls, as the steering wheel Logitech G29.
Previously I used to do all kinds of tests with this type of product to make good full article. But I have noticed I have not been getting my return these articles on classic consoles and accessories. My impression is that no one reads, so I limited my tests the features that interest me.

The Adaptador de Controle Playstation PS3/PS4 para PS2/PS1/PC Brook Game Controller Super Converters Magic Box P2-BL delivers what it promises. Moreover, meets even more promising if we consider that it works with Playstation One, and this system is not mentioned in the package.
My original Dualshock will rest from now, for I have only used the Dualshock 4 to play on Playstation One. So far I found no problem and no fault. To put one second Magic Box P2-BL on mine wishlist, so that the second player can also play wireless. Porém essa é uma aquisição de baixa prioridade e provavelmente esperarei alguma promoção.
