Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AmazonBasics USB 2.0 Extension Cable - A-Male to A-Female - 9.8 Feet (3 Meters) (Personal Computers)
I bought this to extend the length of my existing PlayStation 3 DualShock controller cable. I prefer going wireless with my controller, but when the battery runs down the only way to charge it is to plug in the Sony-supplied cable. Unfortunately, that cable was too short for me to sit back in my chair away from the TV, so I always had to quit playing until it charged. I bought this cable to extend the original controller cable's length, not as a replacement.
This AmazonBasic's USB extension cable is a good a quality cable for a low price, and the "frustration-free packaging" means the box the cable comes in is also the box it's shipped in. It works perfectly for the purpose I bought it: extending the length of PS3 Dualshock controller cable, allowing me to continue playing while charging the battery.

While this A-A extension cable is a good deal, I'd recommend getting a 15 foot A-B (mini) cable instead for your purposes:
 Had wrong cable linked, but here's a 15 foot continuous A-B (mini) cable that can be used for PS3.
RiteAV - USB 2.0 A to Mini-B 5-pin Cable 15 ft.
$4.20, as long as amazon doesn't modify the price (which they tend to do).

What's funny is that I'm on my PS3 now and I need it for my USB headset; the cord isn't long enough! The headset is really made to be used with computers and not for gaming, but it works and I almost bought a new gaming headset, but this is obviously much cheaper.
