The official multitap for the PlayStation

The PlayStation Multitap is a peripheral for the PlayStation console, it is an adapter that can be used to plug in up to four controllers and memory cards at the same time in a single controller port. With a second multitap, up to eight controllers and memory cards can be plugged at once.[1]

Compatibility[edit]

The PlayStation Multitap was originally available in gray (SCPH-1070 U) to match the original console's color, however it was later re-released in white as well (SCPH-1070 UH) to match the colors of the later PS one redesign. Both versions are compatible with the original PlayStation and the PS one, as well as all models of the PlayStation 2 prior to the SCPH-70000 series. Both versions of SCPH-1070 will only function with original PlayStation games, while multiplayer PS2 games required a separate multitap, the SCPH-10090.[2] PlayStation 2 consoles after the SCPH-70000 series require the SCPH-70120 multitap, which is compatible with both, PS and PS2 software.
