Wireing joystick from PS1 controller to USB for PC Answered

I would like to wire a joystick, taken from a PS1 controller, to USB and be able to use it for my PC. The joystick has two Potentiometers ( three wires each, of course ) and a single push switch ( two wires ) I am unsure how this may be done, ( I'm sure it can be ) and also wouldn't know much about writing software for it, should it be accomplished. any help will be greatly appreciated.

true, but i was just looking for a single joystick. odds are i could buy one that size somewhere, but it would be a fun project to make all the same.

you cant do usb
you could however use serial, better yet use the joystick connector(more pins)
