1.0 out of 5 stars COUNTERFEIT FROM THEPRINCEOFTRADE DO NOT BUY November 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Warning! Theprinceoftrade sells counterfeit PS3 remotes. The package, design, materials and labels all match a real Sony controller. Here are the differences:

1) Sticks feel "stiff" and are hard to move.
2) L and R buttons, as well, are hard to press. Not "new" hard, as in they need to be broken in, but actually difficult to bring down. This is due to the counterfeiter's inability to reproduce springs that meet Sony's standards. Their springs are too harsh while Sony's are engineered for a soft and quick response needed in all forms of video games.
3) Most obvious, compare the back license label to a real PS3 remote. There are various subtle, and some big, differences throughout.
4) Remote has a raised plastic shell in some areas when in comparison to the real deal.
5) Game play will show you a controller is fake right away. I tested my remote on MW3. Pressing L3 did not execute a sprint, I had to slam the button to get it to respond. Holding L1 brings up the iron sights, but while still holding it drops them then brings them back up quickly in a glitchy manner, the longer I hold it the more apparent it is.
6) When pressing the PS-Button, the controller takes longer than usual (it's obvious) to connect to your PS3.

Get your money back and buy the real deal from an accredited store in person when you can hold and inspect yourself. It does make a HUGE difference.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I was so excited to get this gaming controller. When it arrived I ripped the box open and plugged it in. The controller was a knock off from China. I was so disappointed. I cannot believe that Amazon will condone this!!!!!! I am so upset and angry!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Silver may be the color to avoid. June 18, 2011
By S.B.
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Anyone reading this will undoubtedly be familiar with the excellent feel and ergonomics of Sony's PS controller, but if you are considering upgrading from the original Sixaxis to this, you won't regret the purchase. The added heft of the vibration mechanism, not to mention the vibration itself, is a substantial addition (not to mention long overdue,) and is worth the price of admission. The battery life is also satisfactory.

Unfortunately, I am writing this review not to praise the DS3, but to criticize the durability of the finish used on the Silver version. I received this controller for Christmas in 2009. I've used it only moderately, using it to play through Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed II, Mass Effect 2 and Gran Turismo 5, which are all fairly long games. The first year I had it, I used it relatively little. Lately I have been using it a lot more, and I am sad to say I noticed the silver paint beginning to flake off above the X button. The paint was already wearing away where the grips touch the table when the controller is not in use, but that was almost to be expected. The paint rubbing off of the face of the controller was not expected, but not entirely surprising, just disappointing.

Originally I wanted the Ceramic White version, but received the Silver when the White was unavailable. I was hoping the silver color was actually molded into the plastic itself, and not simply sprayed on, but clearly this is not the case. If you are the sort of person that regards their controllers as simple tools to play their games, without concern for the aesthetics of the controller itself, you probably won't mind this. If you do enjoy maintaining the appearance of your console and it's accessories (i.e.

1.0 out of 5 stars phonie April 17, 2013

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm pretty sure this controller is a fake. It doesn't connect to the playstation as quickly as the real ones I have purchased and it also has a fake fcc sticker on the bottom of it. Also, it won't turn on the playstation remotely like an official Sony controller. The playstation must first be turned on before this control will activate. If this controller is plugged into the charger the playstation will not turn off. The battery life also only lasts about half as long as an official Sony controller. It's says Sony on it but it's far from being a Sony product.

This controller is much better than the ones produced when the PS3 first came out. I wore out the rubber covering on the toggle buttons on my old controller. It just became a nuisance to use. This new one uses a different covering on the toggle buttons and feels more durable. I also like the rumble during games (always liked that on old PS2).

Let me start by saying that mechanically, this is like any other DS3 and works great.

However, one thing I did notice is that the finish on this is slightly textured while the regular black dualshocks are smooth. I also have the Japanese spec white DS3 and it is smooth too.

I don't mind the textured finish and it actually helps when my hands get sweaty. But I figured I'd mention it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: no USB cable included!! December 16, 2009
Verified Purchase
Item description on Amazon states there is a mini USB cable included -- this is not correct!
The actual box says "usb cable is not included" and advises to use the cable that comes with your PS3
to recharge the controller, which might be not possible if that's your second controller
and you need to charge both! 3 stars total for the cheap shortcoming.
