Yes I know I had to use a breadboard as a common ground

After 7 months of not-so-hard labor I have finally completed my Playstation 3 (TM) Arcade controller.  For me to complete this project I had to learn about woodworking, soldering and basic knowledge about electronics.

Looks beautiful amirite?

The controller works great and has been tested by one of my friends who is a very avid gamer. There may be a button sensing issue yet this is not a noticeable problem. I only noticed that there may be a button sensing issue when playing Tekken with the command history turned on. Despite the extra button press being detected Tekken’s combat system has some leniency when it comes to determining what your character would do according to your actions: A fireball may not be performed perfectly yet the game will still have your character unleash your special move.

Skills Required:

  • woodworking
  • soldering
  • basic electronics

Tools Required:

Materias and estimated costs:

  • sacrificed breadboard or a terminal block (common ground for all the buttons) $2.00
  • 10 Buttons (Jab, Medium, Fierce, Short Kick, Medium Kick, Roundhouse, PS3 Home, Start) $10.00
  • Scrap wood
  • Sanwa JLF-TP-8T Ball Handle Joystick $22.95

After spending over 20 hours of play the controller is in need of some repair. This was due to me not wanting to solder any connections yet since I was still testing the joystick. Now that the test is over I just need to finalize all the connections to prepare for the upcoming Tekken 6 tournament.
