Works, except for the quirks,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In most ways, this controller works just like a regular Sony controller, and for a far cheaper price. So if you don't mind a couple head-scratching issues with it, it's a worthwhile purchase. That said, I've noticed two problems with it:
1. If you have it plugged in to the PS3 when you turn the system off, it turns it right back on. That probably sounds ridiculous, but I have tried it dozens of times (not to mention hundreds of times with the other controllers I own, which NEVER do this) and every single time I turn off the PS3 with this controller plugged in, it turns the system back on. If you have a separate charger and/or charge this controller while the PS3 is on, then this won't affect you (and it could be that not all of them do this, but mine certainly does.
2. If you pause the game you are playing for more than a minute or so, the controller shuts off. You have to come back and double click it again before you can push start and continue the game. It's not as if that takes all day or anything, but it can be a bit annoying if you're the type that has to walk away from your game very often.
If these two things don't bother you (and if you're confident enough that the one you buy won't have additional problems) then hey, save yourself $25 or $30 and buy this controller. Who wants to spend $50 on one, after all?
