You need a USB-host shield to plug into your Arduino, for it to be able to "understand" the USB-communication from the Joypad.

Then you need to remove the COB (Chip On Board) on the PCB. (there is a silicon chip underneath the black blob of glue) and replace the electronics with something else, or wire a 15-conductor cable from the Joypad to the Arduino.
