The Brook Super Converter is a USB-based adapter designed to convert your Playstation 3 peripheral for use in the Sony Playstation 4 or PC. It does this without requiring authorization from an original gamepad. This unprecedented advancement makes the Brook Super Converter the most portable adapter on the market today.
Full-Featured, Firmware Upgradeable
The Brooks Super Converter has several convenient features to improve the control experience.
- Accepts FightSticks, wired or wireless (bluetooth) gamepads, and steering wheels amongst other original and 3rd party Playstation 3 peripherals.
- Automatically maps to the equivalent buttons on the target console; allows for button customization via intuitive, color-changing LED on the adapter.
- Supports mapping a single or combination of buttons to a Turbo function for rapid fire play.
- Ability to hot-swap peripherals without unplugging the device from the console.
- Vibration support when used on the Playstation 4 console.
In addition, the Brook Super Converter is firmware upgradeable, which can be used to improve functionality, and add new features. Firmware updates are performed by attaching your device to a Windows PC, or Mac with Boot Camp partition or Parallels Virtual PC software.
2016 Tournament Acceptance
As of now, the Brook Super Converter is allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events. Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments. This policy is a tentative acceptance - should the converter become disabled via Sony firmware update before EVO, it could face a ban. You can learn more about it here (Opens in new window).
Compatible with the Zero Delay PCBA
Now, via latest device firmware update, you can use the PS3/PC Zero Delay USB Encoder PCB: Japan Style Controls or PS3/PC Zero Delay USB Encoder PCB: American Style Controls with this device to play on the Sony PS4 or PS4 Pro! Both products are economically priced, and allow for incredible versatility for budget-minded joystick builders or those who already have either device on hand.
Please note that you will need to update the Brook PS3 to PS4 Super Converter to the latest firmware before attempting to connect the Zero Delay PCBA onto the converter. To learn about PS4 button mappings, please visit the Zero Delay PCB product page and click on the "Support" tab.
The Brook Super Converter comes in its own professionally designed box. In the box is the device; paper instructions are also included in English and Taiwanese. You can also download the instructions as a PDF from the Support tab.
