Multiple USB for PS3

4962 Views 19 Posts Locked Playstation 3 Hardware
Has anyone ever tried any multiple USB adapters to see if it works on ps3? Because with only 2 USBs Maybe you can change it to make it six??
You mean a USB hub? Yeah they work.

where can you buy them from? and how much?
need to be powered... I use a Logitech that matches the shiney black of the PS3
Why do they need to be powered? Mine isn't and it works.

WC_Loc, most computer stores sell them. Cheapo ones are about $8-$9, Logitech ones like ozdavos one are from $25-$40(RRP)
^aight cool
what 4 isnt enough
The 40gb version only has 2.

Besides the fact that its already been pointed out that the 40gb PS3 only has 2, even the 4 on my 60gb PS3 aint enough if I dont want to be plugging & unplugging cords, I have 2 GH3 guitars, PS3eye, singstar, 2 charging cables for controllers plus a charging cable for the bluetooth headset so thats 7 usb cables & I dont have Rock Band yet which will mean a few more. I might have to get a hub just because I like to have everything plugged in ready to go & it also saves any cables going missing.

Regarding the logitech premium 4-port usb hub...
Does it need to be powered from another source or can I just use it straight off the ps3 without any other external power?

I plan on getting two of these maybe so help would be appreciated!
hubs only need to be power from usb not external power

If the devices you are going to be plugging into the USB slots draw power out of them. You Will need to get a HUB with an external power soruce.

I have two of these. And they're great! You can choose not to have it externally powered. I think most of my stuff still worked. But I decided to plug it in anyway. Just in case

Just try it out and see if they can be just powered through the USB port from the PS3. If it can't, then you'll need the external power
you mean a hub in a hub in a hub in a hub in a hub ?

yeah, i've tried it, it works =]
i've also got 2 of the logitech's runnning on my ps3's.
they look awesome and do the job you'd expect.
i was just asking if i needed to plug the logitech thingo into an AC power source.
just plug the hub in and the ps3 gives it power

You can. But you don't have to ...

But obviously if one of your devices don't work ... I'd say you need the AC power source
