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.
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.

And it's available in both the SIXAXIS wireless controller and the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.
No wires. With the DUALSHOCK 3's Bluetooth technology you can play completely untethered.
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.

Purchased this controller to accompany my lone OEM six-axis controller that came with the PS3 - was not satisfied using a wireless Logitech PC game pad not designed for the system as my second controller.
I ordered the Classic White Dualshock 3, sold by Sony Computer Entertainment/Amazon LLC*, and everything seems to work fine. I've been scouring the web watching videos and reading forums discussing the elements that indicate a counterfeit controller and I'll post annotated images of my controller including the label area. So far I can't find anything wrong with this controller except at one attempt to turn on the PS3, it went into all 4 LEDs flashing after the system booted. I just had to press the reset button on the underside to fix.**
+Silkscreen SONY labels and button markings are aligned, printed smooth/cleanly, and match the colors of my OEM six-axis controller.
+LED lights are flush with the front side of the controller.
+Seams between top half and bottom are clean and not sharp, and flashing from the plastic mold on the analog sticks are clean.
+Buttons, analog stick, and d-pad all work fine. I can press the L3/R3 analog stick buttons down while they are moved.
+Label on back is aligned and flush with label area. No spelling errors, missing punctuations, or extra spacing (Enter tainment).
+Reset button needed to be used, so it's not a functionless hole on the underside.
+While inspecting label, I could not locate any 6th counterfeit screw hole under the label.
-I do see the red LEDs illuminating faintly through the face of the controller, not sure if that's normal.Read more ›
This controller is no doubt the best for the Playstation.
DESIGN - 8/10
The design fits perfectly for most people. I am a person with relatively small hands (I'm 5' 4" and 15 years old), and the shape of the controller seems to be built for me. The two handles are compactly cradled in my two palms, and the plastic is smooth and feels nice.
The two analog sticks are a bit too close to each other in my opinion--if you move both to the center of the controller, your thumb tips will touch.
The R2 and L2 buttons are a bit wonky--they are curved inwards, so if you put the controller on the floor, the two buttons might accidentally activate.
I personally think that the XBOX360 controller is better in the ergonomics for most people, but don't get me wrong--the DualShock fits great and looks great as well.
USAGE - 10/10
The thing about the DualShock 3 is that it's the best controller for consoles--the deadzone is near non-existant. This means that you will be able to make precise and small movements with the analog sticks, which is great for first person shooters and many others.
The D-Pad is also best in class. The arrow buttons are actually on a single disk being pressed, but when using it, it feels like they are real buttons. I have to say, hands down--the PS3 controller is better than the XBOX controller in terms of technology.
DURABILITY/CONSTRUCTION - 10/10
The DualShock's construction is once again, incredibly well done. The plastic is VERY hard, and has sustained from at least ten 5' drops. I would prefer not to drop it at all, though.
The controller is relatively easy to open for repairs.Read more ›
It works great like a normal controller would. All the buttons, triggers, sticks, etc. work great. However, I might as well be playing with a wired controller because the only way I can use it is with the USB cable connected. It won't stay synced to my PS3, no matter the steps I take. I even tried pressing the reset button on the bottom but it wont stay synced.
Buyer beware. If you're expecting an official Sony controller, buy from this seller at your own risk.

They should make these things more sturdier, after 2 years it moves on its own and the left joystick won't work (up and down moves only). And the right one moves to the right.Published 1 month ago by Mario
