    Hi,
    Mostly noob to Wii U Homebrew,
    Its a simple question, Is there a way to use mt PS3 and/or PS4 controller on my Wii U as a Pro Controller?
    I know about USB2VPAD but that emulates the gamepad and I want o play with my friends without spending 30$ getting Wii U Pro Controllers.

    TLDR:
    Can you use a PS3/PS4 Controller as a Pro Controller?

    Any help is Much apreciated.

    It is possible for Nintendon't, so you can use it to play Gamecube games.

    Some USB loaders may use it for the loader itself, but I don't believe it's possible for games.

    Many homebrew emulators support it. I think retroarch does?

    To quote forums superstar Cyan:

    So if I understand you correctly, I can only use it on nintendon't or some Loaders but outside of that I'm screwed?

    Pretty much. Might work for some emulators too.

    I was wondering this myself, the 8Bitdo adapter could have been a great solution, but I tried it and it doesn't work. Maybe in a future firmware update.

    HIDtoVPAD has support to emluate almost any HID-controller as either a gamepad or pro controller, what version are you using?
