 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello, I was wondering if I could wire the pressure sensitive buttons of a Dualshock 2 controller to the digital input pins of an Arduino Pro Mini.  I am referring to wiring directly to the square, triangle, circle and x buttons from the diagram of the PCB below.  I was able to get output from a Dualshock 1 controller to work correctly but Dualshock 1 has digital buttons.  I just want the pressure sensitive buttons of the Dualshock 2 to be interpreted the same way as the Dualshock 1's digital buttons, but I don't know if that's possible.

An analog comparator circuit would work. You would set it for at what level of pressure you want to trigger at. Anything above (or below) that would output a one.
