Inject the Indestructible X-Arcade experience into your PS5™ to relive arcade legends, fighting and classics with the unmatched precision of the award-winning X-Arcade™ Joystick. Connect any X-Arcade Controller or Arcade Machine to your PS5™.
The X-Arcade™ was built with internal electronics to be compatible with the major past, present and FUTURE game systems. Once you own the X-Arcade™ Joystick or Machine you will never need to buy another arcade joystick again! The X-Arcade™ is recognized by your console as a regular console gamepad.
Play your favorite fighting titles and classic arcade games with lighting-fast precision. Annihilate the competition off and online with a lag-free, high-performance adapter. Please Note: The Trackball is not functional on PS5 (unless a game adds USB Mouse Support). This adapter also allows you to connect any PS2 game controller to your PS5.
The standard layout allows your X-Arcade to control 2 separate players. However, some games like Robotron use (2) Joysticks for 1 Player, so we created a special new mode in additional to the standard 2 Player Layout.
DualStick Mode converts the right joystick of any X-Arcade™ 2 Player into the right analog thumbstick of a gamepad.
Inject authentic control on classic arcade titles which use 2 simultaneous digital joysticks. This new mode is NOT recommended for 1st person shooters which need analog control.
You must own an X-Arcade PS2 Adapter or 5in1 Adapter to connect between your X-Arcade and this adapter. `If you don't have a PlayStation 2 or 5in1 Adapter you can bundle a dedicated PS2 adapter. Select the option which says (INCLUDES REQUIRED)
