    No. What you need is either optical to RCA DAC or HDMI audio stripper. PS3 doesn't support USB audio out.

    My recommendation is Fiio D03K and hook optical cable to it. Sounds better than that crap adapter you listed anyway. Make sure to configure PS3 to output 2.0 PCM only on optical cable.

    I dont have a scooby what you just said !!

    I wanna use a headset on the wiiu and the ps3 ...

    so the wiiu has 3.5mm jack that combines mic and audio out.

    the PS3 USB doesnt support this ?

    If i reverse my scenario ... could i get a headset for the PS3 .. ie a usb one .. and get an adaptor in reverse of what i depicted earlier .. ????

    Ah.., you want microphone too. Scratch Fiio D03K then.

    The USB adapter you listed before is just a generic USB DAC/ADC, expecting to work on PC.

    USB headset you seen on PS3 uses proprietary protocol. You need a headset that explicitly supports PS3. For Wii U USB headset supports is on per title basis, meaning for most game it doesn't work. There is no reverse adapter for USB headset.

    You know I never seen something like this, awfully suspicious. Not only it seems so small that it couldn't fit a ADC circuitry, but pricing is fishy.

    This thing is probably like Firewire to USB cable, a cable that doesn't work at all in the first place.

    That said, for Wii U can't you just use microphone on the Gamepad?

    You could just buy a Sony Pulse Elite Headset, use it wirelessly on your ps3 and use the included 3.5mm cable to connect it to the gamepad, I heard it works great.

    I had one that I just sold to get the GTAV model...
