Color Name:Black|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well folks, now that the dust has settled from the Sony vs. Immersion lawsuit, Playstation 3 owners are finally able to feel the vibe again!

I purchased this controller today and I knew the only way to properly road-test it was on the game that made the Dualshock famous, Metal Gear Solid. After booting up the game, I walked down the hallway and got spotted by a guard. As he shouted, "WHO'S THAT?" the controller jumped in my hand - and I knew this was a smart purchase. As the guards shot at me, I felt the feedback of the bullets, just as I had 10 years ago on my Sony Playstation.

I picked out another old school Playstation game, Tenchu: Stealth Assassins. From Ayame's blades to Rikimaru's sword, each sword swipe and jump had excellent feedback.

Okay, so my Playstation games worked out. But what about my Playstation 2 library?

I popped in God of War, knowing I had to feel the swing of the Blades of Chaos. The controller vibrations felt a little lighter here, but the vibrations still occurred at the appropriate times.

Then I chose Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction. Who better to test a vibration controller than the Sultan of Smash? All the power jumps and smashes had the vibrations intact, but they still felt a little on the light side.

All right, so far I was two for two with my Playstation and Playstation 2 test subjects. But what about my Playstation 3 games? Could I possibly hit a trifecta?

5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready to rumble, even with PS 2 games! April 4, 2008
Color Name:Black|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was already extremely happy with the Sixaxis controller, but I could not resist getting the DualShock 3. Not only do you get the rumble, but also, it feels much better in your hands, even for those games that do not use this feature. The rumble function is fun, but on top of that, it helps with gameplay, because "feeling" what is happening provides a lot more feedback than just watching how your character or car reacts to the environment.

The biggest surprise of all was that the rumble works with PS 2 games in the PS 3 system. I am currently playing through "God of War", a game which had the rumble capability in PS 2. I thought that it was unlikely that I was going to get this feature with this new controller in the PS 3, but it worked perfectly.

I know that having to buy a new controller and basically discard the one that came with the system is not the ideal situation, but I have to say this product is really worth shedding the extra bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should've been rumble from the start. April 13, 2008
Color Name:Black| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Playstation 2's highly regarded DualShock 2 controller was considered by many to be the best videogame controller of all time. So when you've got a winning design there's no need to change anything. However, because of a legal battle with Immersion over rumble technology, Sony was forced to offer their Sixaxis controller without rumble. The Sixaxis had the same Dualshock design but it felt too lightweight and cheap. Thankfully the lawsuit has been settled and rumble has come back to the Playstation.

For the most part, the DualShock 3 is almost identical to its PS2 precessor. But it has all the features of the original Sixaxis controller in addition to rumble. The controller is still wireless, can be charged by plugging it into your PS3 (or PC), rumble is compatible with all PS1 and PS2 games, and the PS3 supports up to 7 controllers at the same time via bluetooth. Rumble in the DualShock 3 seems more responsive in regards to the location of its vibration depending on which side you get hit on during the games. I don't know if this is something in the design or if it's the developers doing it for the games but I welcome it.

All in all this is currently the best designed controller on the market right now. The PS2's DS2 was incredible so "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies here. I'll be enjoying rumble in my PS3 games from now on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!!!! May 24, 2012
Color Name:Pink| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I think someone out there is selling bootleg controllers.

I purchased this for my girlfriend who was getting into games with me. The feel of it was never right, not from the start. I thought it needed to be broken in and that the L3 and R3 thumb sticks would loosen. I would have to switch controllers with my girlfriend since the sticks were too firm and it effected her gameplay experience. Ultimately those same sticks went haywire and I would lose all control of my character in whatever game I was playing. A total waste of money!!! I felt compelled to return the item, but I threw the packaging and instructions out before these issues were realized.

Stick with what you know, spend the extra money and be certain that you're not being had. You might have to leave Amazon and go to a retail outlet like Best Buy. You need to be 100% positive you're getting authentic Sony products!

If you Google "Fake ps3 controller" and you will see there are people on Amazon and Ebay peddling imitation stuff.

I was ripped off, don't be a victim.
