  • Product Description

    NOTE: It is recommended that you confirm that the latest firmware is installed on your device by visiting the Brook Device Support page, downloading the firmware update app, and following instructions in the manual. new-window-icon.png Links to Brook device firmware update information and instructions are available in the Support tab.

    The Dreamcast, Sega's final push into the home entertainment console market, marked one of the highlights of the company's history before bowing out of the console race, later offering multi-platform software.  The console's software lineup was top-notch, with Capcom as one of their most ardent supporters since the Sega Saturn.  This support led to the appearance of some of the FGC's most played titles in a format deemed true to arcade, such as Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Capcom vs SNK 2.

    The Brook Super Converter is a USB-based adapter designed to convert your Playstation 3 or Playstation 4 peripheral for use in Sega's original Dreamcast console.

    Now with 40 Blocks VMU Memory

    Please note that upgrading to the latest firmware is required to utilize this feature.

    While the device does not support VMU hardware, it can now save up to 40 blocks of VMU memory directly to its own device.  For many wishing for the opportunity to save their games without switching to an original Dreamcast controller on another port, this is quite beneficial. 

    Full-Featured, Firmware Upgradeable

    The Brook Super Converter has several convenient features to improve the control experience.

    • Accepts FightSticks, wired and wireless Playstation 3/4 gamepads, and amongst other original and 3rd party PS3 and PS4 compatible peripherals.
    • Use the Brook logo button at top of device to switch between analog gamepad or arcade Fightstick.
    • Supports mapping a single or combination of buttons to a Turbo function for rapid fire play.
    • Ability to hot-swap peripherals without unplugging the device from the console.
    • Vibration and Turbo support.
    • Mappable buttons from peripheral to Dreamcast control
    • X-Input support


    In addition, the Brook Super Converter is firmware upgradeable, which can be used to improve functionality, and add new features.  Firmware updates are performed by attaching your device to a Windows PC, or Mac with Boot Camp partition or Parallels Virtual PC software. 

    2016 Tournament Acceptance

    As of now, the Brook Super Converter is allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events.  Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments. This policy is a tentative acceptance - should the converter become disabled via Sony firmware update before EVO, it could face a ban.  You can learn more about it here (Opens in new window).

    What's Included

    The Brook Super Converter comes in its own professionally designed box.  In the box is the device; paper instructions are also included in English and Taiwanese.

    1. Perfect.

      I built a Dreamcast stick before this product was announced. And this adaptor works perfectly. on Mar 30th 2019

    2. Dreamcast lives!

      This converter works exactly how you’d want it to. It’s really great playing Dreamcast fighting games with a current model stick. on Mar 11th 2019

    3. Wire connection to plug is fragile

      I have Brook PS3/PS4 Super Converters for PS2, NeoGeo, and Dreamcast, and they've all worked great with my Hori RAPV stick, with no additional lag--for instance, here is a comparison of the input delay on a stock DC pad vs the RAPV through the Super Converter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6MvxcNinpE

      This Converter defaults the buttons to just where they should be on the arcade stick--and the firmware update enabled it to act as a DC memory card with 40 blocks of storage, which has worked just dandy.

      I've had to take at least a star off this one's rating though because I've bought two of these DC Super Converters now, and within several days of use, both have had the outer gray wire sheath pull free or split from the plug that goes into the Dreamcast's controller port.

      It's a little hard to see in these photos because of the tape I put over the area to try to protect the exposed inner wires, but you can just see a bit of a gap there where the outer wire casing has pulled free from the plug unit:

      I contacted Brook about it and they got back right away to say "Thank you for your advice, we will feedback to R&D team and improve it.

      Please try to contact your seller for a replacement."

      I've never had this problem with any other adapter or controller. I'm hoping their upcoming PC Engine Super Converter will be a little more robust in terms of the outer wire casing.

    4. A no brainier!

      This adapter works great and is so simple to use. It really is plug and play. I have a custom fightstick that I put together using the Brooks PC/PS4 board and it works flawlessly. Works with PS4 controller too. on Nov 20th 2018

    5. Brook super converter sega dreamcast

      Brook super converter sega dreamcast is very nice design being able to switch back and forth from arcade to toggle to pad is really nice the instant certification with it just hooks up to the Dreamcast is really sweet right on right there go done and with the service of focus attack it is certainly a really nice deal the only downside is that I would like more than one [year warranty]on this device thank you for \ Focus attack / you're the best . on Sep 17th 2018

    6. Great Product

      Nostalgia overload! Finally get to play my collection of fighters with a joystick again! Awesome product! on Aug 14th 2018

    7. Too bad my local isn't into Dreamcast fighters

      This product is amazing! It's so good it hurts me to say that I can't get other guys in my local FGC to see the awesome amazing-ness of this device. It truly is a marvel to behold! on Aug 6th 2018

    8. Awesome adapter!

      I had a busted old cthulhu-modded stick that I used to play my dreamcast. One day I had enough and decided I'd just get an adapter with as little extra lag as possible that works with my much better PS4 stick. This does the job wonderfully, and the stick gets picked up by the dreamcast immediately, and is properly detected as a dreamcast arcade stick. on Aug 2nd 2018

    9. Dopest thing ever

      It’s a must have for those that still own a Dreamcast and never could get the original Arcade sticks and or MAS sticks (which are super rare). Works perfectly with no lag what so ever worth every penny on Jun 18th 2018

    10. Very awesome.

      I am super happy to have this thing. That’s why I bought a Dreamcast! Do buy if you own one! I had a blast playing multiplayer with my brother playing KOF DM1999 (KOF98 for DC) on Jun 11th 2018
