GAME CONSOLE CABLING FREE cabling and networking Helpdesk
 Question by Joe posted 13 Mar 2003
I have almost all the major gaming consoles.(XBOX,PS2,PSONE,GAMECUBE,N64,DREAMCAST). I would like to locate the consoles in my equipment room and hard wire all the controller cabling into the house and terminate the cables onto a panel near my gaming area so that players can just plug in the appropriate controlers. If this is possible, how and where can I obtain information on the cabling and the run lengths? Wireless controllers are not an option.

Dear Joe,

We do not have the information you need, sorry. Every console uses proprietary cables for controllers, and, if we aren't talking about Internet connections, there is no standard that you can follow. Your best bet would be to search news groups for consoles related info.
