Controller Adapters
Controller Adapters for Games Machines (aka Controller Converters).

Controller Adapters / Controller Converters.
Many game controllers designed for a specific games machine can be adapted to work on another by attaching a converter. For instance, the adapter pictured above allows Playstation 2 compatible controllers to work on a Sega Saturn games console.

Of note, the Playstation one and PS2 games consoles probably have the largest range of controllers to choose from, including a range of one-handed controllers and arcade sticks.
