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.

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.

Controller worked for a little less than a year but all of a sudden without touching anything it scrolls up and down
I have tried to clean it every which way possible but it doesn't stop.

I bought this controller to add to my color variety and complete a set of 4. After looking around I found the best deal here at Amazon.com The controller works like it's supposed to. All buttons work fine, joystick and all. I usually play 1st Person Shooter games that require fast reactions and a responsive controller, this one takes care of that. The appearance is nice, if you like RED, this controller will make you happy as it was made with a nice strong tone of red. When it arrives it's nicely packaged in a Sony branded package, you are going to need some sharp scissors or a sharp blade to get it out. Just so you know "THERE IS NO USB CABLE INCLUDED" and you'll need to charge it for a good 2-4 hours. I've purchased 3 controllers and none come with a USB cable. I just use the usb cable that came with the PS3, whenever I watch a movie I just plugged it in and let it charge while movie plays. Controller HOLDS CHARGE like it's supposed, "a long time", I won't try to guess how long but if you don't remember when you charged it last then it's a pretty good charge hold. DON'T CHARGE IT UNLESS IT NEEDS IT to keep battery life, I suggest you charge it up only when PS3 gives you the warning on your TV screen at upper left corner. I PAID $43.26 delivered to my door and I've never paid more than $45.00 for one because I don't have to. Local retailer will get you for $55 or so plus tax if you can't wait 4 days, so it's your choice. So, whenever buying any controller for your PS3 just make sure it's made by Sony as there are a lot of "Compatible" Controllers out there that WILL NOT deliver your expectations; and if you look around you might find a Good Deal as I did at Amazon. Thank you,
My Controller Collection: Six Axis Controller(like the one that you got w PS3) 1 RED, 1 BLUE, 1 PINK, & 1 COSMIC BLUE. Move Controllers: Move Motion Controllers x 2, PS3 Move Sharp Shooter GUN, Move Navigation Controller, Move EYE Camera

i bought this as a second controller when i purchased a ps3 last winter. both this controller and the one included with the ps3 worked equally well with every game. i couldn't tell a difference in feel or playability between the controllers. however, this one only lasted about six months before the direction pad quit working.

my family is probably not the most careful with their game controllers, but i've never had any controller break on me until now. we even have our old ps1 and ps2 controllers that still work (not that they get much use anymore). the price of this product would lead me to believe that it is a genuine oem product, but the durability does not. perhaps i just got a lemon.

UPDATE 10/19/13
writing this review got me a bit miffed about the controller's shortcomings, so i took it apart to see if i could figure out why the D-pad quit working. everything appeared to be in order, so i then put it all back together. a word to the wise: these little guys are not the easiest to reassemble correctly, so be careful to get everything back in the correct place before closing it back up. anyways, i fired it up and everything worked on it! i guess it's possible that the sensors under the D-pad got mis-aligned if the controller was dropped or otherwise jarred about, and my tinkering with it must have seated them correctly again. i will raise my rating from three to four stars since it is fully functional once again.

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.
