Cronus USB lets you use a 360 controller on a PS3 and vice versa

Throughout the gaming community there is a lot of smack talk regarding what the better gaming system is, and although there are many reasons for having a preferred platforms, one of the reasons we’ve heard is that the Xbox 360 controller is more comfortable to use than Sony’s Dualshock 3 and Nintendo’s WiiMote and gamepad – but wouldn’t it be convenient if you could use an Xbox 360 controller or a WiiMote on a PlayStation 3? Well now, you can with a new USB adapter manufactured by RaptorFire.

The Cronus USB dongle is a device which aims to allow the player to use his or her preferred controller on their desired platform. The staff at Engadget recently had the opportunity to use the device and proceeded to play Battlefield 3 on the PS3 using an Xbox 360 controller. The process went smoothly, but how the controller syncs to the device is still a partial mystery, however, the manufacturers suggest that it’s relatively easy to do so.

We’re not exactly sure why a player would need this, but it may make things more confortable if one controller isn’t palm-friendly enough for the user.

The company is looking to get these to market in two to three months, priced at around $50 to $60.
