Product Description

Get Closer To The Action With The DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller

The DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 system provides the most intuitive game play experience with pressure sensors in each action button and the inclusion of the highly sensitive SIXAXIS motion sensing technology. Each hit, crash and explosion is more realistic when the user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It can even detect natural movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user’s body. DUALSHOCK 3 utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and the controller’s USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the PlayStation 3 at anytime. By integrating all of these features into the popular PlayStation controller design, the DUALSHOCK 3 will further enhance the advanced game play experience only available on the PlayStation 3 system.

Pressure-Sensitive Buttons

Feel the controller vibrate with each hit, crash or explosion.

SIXAXIS Highly Sensitive Motion Technology

Your natural movements become part of the action. And the controller becomes a natural extension of your body. The SIXAXIS motion-sensing system allows users to maneuver the controller itself. With this system, sensors read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls the controller, all in real-time and with high precision. And it's available in both the SIXAXIS wireless controller and the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

Bluetooth Technology

No wires. With the DUALSHOCK 3's Bluetooth technology you can play completely untethered.

Charging

Charge the DUALSHOCK 3 with the PlayStation 3 system using the controller's USB cable. And you can even plug it in during gameplay, so you'll never miss a beat.


Key Features
  • The only Bluetooth PS3 controller
  • Comfort-designed ergonomic grips
  • Immersive vibration feedback
  • Intuitive SIXAXIS motion sensing controls
  • Fast action shoulder buttons
  • Precision control dual analog sticks

4.0 out of 5 stars They slept on the red light check out day November 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
These new painted DualShock 3 controllers are better than the black ones, because the paint finish makes them easier to grip. The black plastic ones become slick when your hands sweat while gaming, while the painted ones have a matte finish that adds a little texture. I have a silver one and this red one, both have a nice look.

The problem with the red version is that the indicator light next to the usb plug shines through the casing. With the light and the paint being red, the light gets an intensity boost and it shows through the top of the controller. It's not a big deal to me, but is surprising coming from Sony as they usually don't miss details like that. Otherwise this is a great color red, with just a bit of metal flake. Get one of these and spice up your gaming.

This controller is a fake don't buy or you would very soon regret it for sure.

This controller is a Chinese fake, it works on some games just like the original controller but on more advanced games like Amazing Spiderman 2 it sucks, the buttons don't work as a original controller works. I have this and original controller and I compared both controller's function and I was shocked. I have to keep pressing the fire button for each fire whereas with original controller it would keep firing at a very high rate.

This was for my son and totally stopped using this controller because If you are a gamer then you would understand this flaw makes life and death difference in most games.

Also, now when I compared the label on original and this controller its clear this its not same, its says Sony but there is no serial number of ay other details that were on original controller.

I contacted seller with this complain and I got no response, which kind a shows that are aware of the issue and just trying to push out these fake controllers. I tried Sony and they won't cover these controllers under manufacturer warranty either.

Only buy from a US seller because from within US they can't sell fakes like this for a trademark products.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Red Plastic Looks Great March 13, 2010
By J. Reed
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was so pleased to learn that Sony resolved their legal issue with "Dual Shock" rumble. Now this feels so much like the controller I have grown used to. It has a good weight to it now and the rumble and new six axis features work very well together. Actually I had a Wii and the six axis features of the Wiimote (like in MarioKart) seem to be not as precise or user friendly as Sony's are.

As for the red color, I was worried it was painted, but no the plastic is through and through red, solid red. And the red is the God of War red (in my opinion) so it is pleasant on the eye.

I am still not very pleased with the L3 and R3 buttons, they feel awkward, but I couldn't really tell you how to better implement these extra buttons either.

Died within months of lite use. this looks like a real PS3 controller but is some unknown maker and they will not replace it, or repair it even though you contact them within the 90 day warranty period.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good controller, but don't get used.
I got a used controller and it works pretty well, but the X button sticks, which makes it hard to play platformers. Other than that it's a good controller and I love the color.
