Didn't Junie's Creations offer a service to modify PSX controllers for the 2600? I know it can be done, worst case with some kind of microcontroller to convert serial back into digital parallel, and the end result should work without special 2600 driver code.

I think you could also use PlayStation dance mats with the VCS. The
PSX controllers also work with 5V and the serial communication is
clocked from the console. It might take some processing time to fully
read the data from a PSX controller, but I don't expect a dancing game
to have too many game calculations going on in the background anyway,
right? In return you would have a controller that still can be
easily bought in many parts of the world. Also PSX extension cables
are also readily available for turning them into an adapter.
