5.0 out of 5 stars A decent pad, December 4, 2010

This review is from: PS3 Wireless Dance Mat (Video Game)
I bought this Dance Pad for use with my 60GB PlayStation 3 console, and yes, it works. I will also mention that this pad will also work for PlayStation 2 consoles, the wireless receiver has a USB and a PS2 connector, which I wasn't aware of and come as a pleasant surprise. Straight out of box, the pad had some lag which made the game I was playing (Dance Dance Revolution Extreme) impossible to play on any HD display [would probably work just fine out of box on Standard Definition TVs].

After fiddling with the sound timing (in the options menu, sub-menu "Sound Settings"), I finally got it working near perfectly. The pad itself is thin, does not come with any foam inserts, so its a bit harder on the feet. The "no-slip" texture on the bottom is alright, but if you are doing anything past Medium skill level there will definitely be unwanted movement/shifting of the pad on carpet, might work better on wood/tiled floors.

All of the arrows are responsive, jumps work just fine. Setup is pretty easy, just plug the USB into any slot on your PS3 and the receiver will start flashing. Make sure that the ON/OFF switch on the pad is set to ON, and then push and hold the SYNC button on the receiver until the flashing changes, then hit the HOME button on the Dance Pad, and you should notice the receiver lights 1 and 2 stay lit. When you start the game it may ask you to "press the PS button", in which case you simply hit the HOME button on the pad again and everything is good to go.

Pros:
Works as intended for PS3 60GB console
Connects easily to both PS3 and PS2 Consoles
2.4Ghz Wireless is responsive to all input once you properly compensate for the lag in game menu.

Cons:
Thin, no foam insert.
Non-Slip surface on bottom isn't great on carpet.
Out-of-box use is impossible on HD monitor/television, must "calibrate" lag manually in game menu.

All in all, not a bad option for the PS3 if you want a wireless pad.
