View Full Version : non playstation controllers not working with LBP

Anyone else having this problem?

I have a turbo controller and a logitech one and a original stock ps3 controller. Only the ps3 one will connect and its only on this game. All other games have no problem recognizing the controllers but some reason LBP doesn't. Anyone else noticed this?

How do you mean not identify? Is it just the head tilting thing?..

Yes... non-sixaxis controllers won't work with LBP. The console acts as if they do not exist at all.
I believe it's intentional behavior. In the beta, LBP would try to sign on the guitar and drums from Rock Band as players... which obviously didn't work well and pretty much meant you had to disconnect them from the console in order to play. This was annoying if you liked to leave them plugged in.

I guess Mm wanted to fix this and figured you would never want to use a non-sixaxis controller to play since you can't move your head or body around if you did.

I don't know what happens with a sixaxis-enabled third-party controller.

i have a madcats wireless ps3 controller with all the motion sensors in it and it works fine with everything except it has a problem with lbp. the problem is that when you push the left stick all the way to the right sackboy only goes at half speed and i know it isnt a problem with my controller because i tested it on all my other games (yes i have that much time on my hands)

LBP doesn't work with original PS2 controllers (with USB converter). I have ps2 with two controllers, and ps3 with 2 controllers, but if i want to play LBP with 3 of my friends, seems like i have to buy another 2 controllers for PS3, so in total i will have 6 of them..
