A Nyko Core Playstation 3 controller is much like a Sony Playstation 3 controller. There are no extra buttons, no odd button placement, and its black. The controller is tightly sealed: no sounds appear when shaking it. And it feels durable; as if someone could toss it around the room multiple times and the it would only get scuffed.

Based on my experience with the Nyko controller for 6 days,it definitely feels new. The analog sticks are different compared to what I'm used to: it feels like something is hindering my movement for a second and then gives me full control of the stick. In an FPS, this slight resistance causes me to oftentimes overshoot my intended target, forcing me to readjust multiple times before I can get a bead on my enemy. Now I don't remember if my original ps3 controller did the same thing when first used and the resistance slowly deteriorated over time, but after using my ps3 controller and then using the Nyko Core controller the same day it just feels... weird. My solution to this would be to lower the sensitivity for any games when using this controller. At least until the analog stick resistance wanes over use -if it even does at all.

The buttons are responsive and have a nice popping feel to them. Shoulder buttons might also have more resistance compared to the face buttons, but hopefully that shouldn't deter you from purchasing this controller.

The Nyko controller is crafted from coarser material compared to the Sony controller, making it slightly easier to grip.

I believe that was everything I was able to deduce from use for 6 days. Until I have more time, I won't be able to determine if there are any design detours used that will eventually crop up and make this controller worthless. I'm hoping there aren't.

I am feeling a little disappointed for choosing this controller, after a quick glance at the customers feedback rating for this product- 85% of the reviews rated this 5 to 4 stars. I was expecting good things from this controller, but I had other thoughts in mind after playing with this controller. To be honest, the only drawback for this controller is the anolog stick. The x & Y axis movement command feels very clunky. If you are playing competitive FPS games like call of duty, you are at a big disadvantage because the anolog only has like 6 movements set for the axis, making it hard to aim accurately. If you are into shooter type games that require precision aiming from anolog sticks, then this is not a very good controller. but for 15$, I wouldn't complain' i can still use this to play racing games & a lot of other games fine. A Sony sixaxis or dualshock 3 replacement? no, a backup controller, yes

This is surprisingly one of the most usable third party controllers I've ever seen. I've used a lot of Mad Catz and Nyko-like junk since Genesis and N64, but this one actually holds up. The biggest shortcomings are the d-pad and L3/R3 buttons. The d-pad is a little stiff, but usable. Still, I wouldn't expect to play Street Fighter or anything on it. For 2D games I might suggest looking elsewhere. The L3/R3 buttons are also nearly impossible to click. It requires too much pressure.

Other than that, this controller is great. You can't see it in the pic, but the triggers are similar to Xbox 360 triggers and have a very good feel. The face and shoulder buttons have slightly bigger throws than a Dual Shock 3, but still feel solid. The analog sticks are a little stiffer than a DS3, but also completely usable.

It's also worth mentioning that this controller is bigger than a dual shock 3. It fills my hands completely, which I don't really like, but it's a matter of taste.

You don't always get what you pay for. Cheap doesn't always mean bad, and expensive doesn't always mean good.

In this case cheap was the way to go. The Nyko Core controller for $19.99 is one of the best purchases I have made for my PS3 in quite a while. From the moment I turned on my PS3 and started playing Resident Evil 5 I knew I had made a good choice in controller.

(Design) Designed very similar to that of the Sony brand controller. The controller is a little bit bigger than the Sony brand controller which was a huge plus to people like me who have big hands. It's not so big that people with smaller hands will be unable to use it. It is only slightly bigger than the Sony controller. The analog sticks have a great resistance level. The buttons are very responsive. The D-pad may look cheap, but works great. Also the controller doesn't have that glossy look to it like the Sony brand does. Honestly I felt as if I had a better grip on it due to being slightly bigger and not being glossy. It's not a pretty controller, but is a well functioning one.

(Features) It comes equipped with trigger style L2 and R2 buttons similar to the Xbox360 controller. It has vibration feedback which works great. Plus the vibration motors add a little extra weight to the controller that some will like. You don't feel like your going to crush it in your hands. It has a 9 foot cord that some will like and some will hate.

(Negatives)
1. Looks cheap (but functions great)
2. Corded (negative to some, but not to me personally)
3. No Sixaxis functionality.

All in all this is a great controller. I am very pleased that I picked it up despite the fact that it looks cheap. The controller works great and if you can live without wireless capability and sixaxis functionality then pick it up. When you see Sony's controller priced at $54.99 and Nyko's controller priced at $19.99, rest assured that the $19.99 will work just as well.
