    Yes but it depends on the game. If you need the "pressure sensitive" feature in a game, it might not work. The only game I have tried with an old ps1 dual shock was Madden 2002 and it seemed to work.

    Yes, Mitty, in general. The only feature PS2 pads have over the PS1 pads are all the buttons are analogue... Generally though, most games on the PS2 aren't really using that feature, and few games *require* that you use the analogue buttons.

    We regularly use PSX pads in the office as spare second player PS2 pads.

    The PS1 controllers work with all PS2 games as long as they are the Dual Shock ones. The analog button feature doesn't matter (I think) and games that use it will still function without it. But most of the time, they should work.

    My PSX dual shock works fine with SSX Tricky.

    We're almost always hiring good quality C++/C programmers with a willingness to learn.
