PSP hack allows for DualShock 2 control

Has your PSP's weary nubbin got you feeling down in the dumps? A new day -- nay, a better day approaches. A French console modder by the name of Flasheur managed to hook a DualShock 2 up to his PSP, allowing for the use of the controller's more responsive (and elevated) analog stick. It'd be a great solution for the handheld's non-ideal control interface -- if only it were a bit more portable, and easier for non-modding experts to attach.

Of course, this isn't the first time we've seen such a mod -- last year, someone managed to hook an original DualShock up to sony's portable console. However, this mod uses a DualShock 2, which is obviously far superior, because ... it has a "2" on the end of its name, we guess.

Check out the painfully long video demo of the mod after the jump.
