PS2 to VGA converter?


Okay, I want to hook up my Playstation 2 to my computer monitor. I know a lot of people say it’s impossible and blah blah blah, but I have been looking into this for the past week and know it’s possible.

The thing is, I’m having trouble deciding what type of cable to buy. I was considering a converter box at first, but they’re pricy and take up a little too much space for my liking. I would really like to get a converter cable, but the majority of cables I look at have bad reviews.

I found this one cable that is specifically for the PS2. It’s by some company called Addlogix and it’s a 6-foot VGA/PS2/USB KVM cable. (Quite a mouthful, isn’t it?) The good news is that it seems like it’s specifically for the Playstation 2, which means no guessing whether or not it will work. The bad news is I can’t find any reviews for this product, and also I don’t even know what a KVM cable IS, lol.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this product, or if you could suggest a similar way to hook up my PS2 to my monitor. Any input is greatly appreciated 🙂

Also, here’s the link to the product so that you can see what I’m talking about:

  1. I don’t think this is the PS2 you are thinking of.

    In this case, PS2 should have been typed PS/2, which is what that purple plug is. That was the precursor to USB in the ways of keyboards and mice.

    And, if the product is exactly as shown, this will not work with a PlayStation 2. There are no plugs that would attach to the ports on the Playstation.

    And, as a side note, while it is possible to hook your PS2 to your monitor, it would be much simpler to just run it to a television.

    EDIT: Still, this is not a product for the PlayStation 2. This is for something called a KVM Console, which means very little to me and probably less to you. And if you are having that much of a problem with your plasma screen and silent hill, then I suggest you take a look at the manuals of both. It may save you a lot of heartache and at least twenty dollars.
