PSP SNES controller mod

[foo] sent in this amazingly well done mod to add an SNES controller to a PSP. He was contacted with a request to mod a PSP for someone who had limited use of one hand. The PSP controls were too difficult for her, but miraculously, she could play an SNES controller well. The quality of the mod is very nice. [foo] has added a port on the back that the controller plugs into. Other than the port on the back, the PSP looks completely stock and functions fine. When plugged in, the cable and plug act as a stand for the PSP too. Check out the video after the break for more.

    Cool. Would like to do this, but, I would probably need the 5 psp he has to do it.

    oh cool! I was at .good will. the other day and picked up an old NES controller… I wished it was a SNES controller. pretty sweet none the less. this kinda hack makes me want a psp for it’s Versatility with emulation, looks like this was take one giant leap further modding a SNES controler, THE look, the feel, and the portability.
    Nice work,,, wonders how they figure out which wire/combination of wires to use…..

    That’s some nice work!

    The PSP does emulation very well.

    @erik, you’d be surprised. crack one open and look for some pinouts, the hardest part for this would be the connector. most of the psp is pretty easy to solder to.

    @scott

    Considering the fact that this is a PSP 2000, and the points are soldered onto 0.5mm pitch zif connectors, mounted on heavily populated areas of the motherboard, that statement is completely wrong.
    Lets see your soldering work please.

    Haha, if you then add another controller (or psp-wifi?) and a tv-out, you can have the true snes-feeling back!

  9. You says:

    Uh, would it really be so hard to just use the controls on the PSP to play those games? They are pretty similar…

    @ you

    rereas the article.. it’s for someone with disabilities that can’t play the psp. but can play the snes.

  11. Liden says:

    What is the point in this?! Total waste of time in my opinion. You should have tried to mod it with something different. In case you haven’t noticed. The controls are EXACTLY the same. The only thing I see different is that you get to play your psp about a half a foot away! wth?

  12. Liden says:

    How could anyone have a disability to play a controller that is the EXACT same!?

  13. f00 says:

    @liden
    Think about what your saying before you say it. If your using one hand to used all the controles on a psp you will be covering the screen with your hand. Pretty obviouse if you think about it for more than 1 second.

    Thanks for posting this Caleb.

    -or if your hands shake for any reason.

    In practice you could move the controller around and not get eyestrain following the screen around at the same time.

    Its good, but is it portable?

  17. I like you published the content, thank you! Express support!

  18. It’s a simple enough mod and I can see the advantages.
    Personally, I would have made a one handed controller addon but that depends on the disability.

    Another addition to this mod could be the ability to remove the SNES controller which could be done relatively easily. This would be more practical for the portable media player aspect of the playstation portable.

    :)
    All and all it’s just another controller modification and not practical for me but if you REALLY wanted to use an old SNES controller its an inspiring idea.

    Oh and liden, Your an idiot.

  19. I have been searching hard for info on this, so thanks for the post, any ideas where I can get more information?

    What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. Head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.

    This is pretty lame. Why put an SNES controller on a PSP? The controller layout are almost alike.

  27. prem says:

    Since we’ve dug this up i’ll just say it’d be helpful if people actually read tfa.

    Looking back at the comments, about 3 people noticed that the main reason behind this was the person it was created for only has the use of one hand.

    Yes, the controller layouts are similar but do you see that big ass screen in the middle of the psp? yea, that could become an issue.
