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.

my family is probably not the most careful with their game controllers, but i've never had any controller break on me until now. we even have our old ps1 and ps2 controllers that still work (not that they get much use anymore). the price of this product would lead me to believe that it is a genuine oem product, but the durability does not. perhaps i just got a lemon.
writing this review got me a bit miffed about the controller's shortcomings, so i took it apart to see if i could figure out why the D-pad quit working. everything appeared to be in order, so i then put it all back together. a word to the wise: these little guys are not the easiest to reassemble correctly, so be careful to get everything back in the correct place before closing it back up. anyways, i fired it up and everything worked on it! i guess it's possible that the sensors under the D-pad got mis-aligned if the controller was dropped or otherwise jarred about, and my tinkering with it must have seated them correctly again. i will raise my rating from three to four stars since it is fully functional once again.
To be honest, Sony has become very greedy. After I got a refund on this controller, I bought a new one at Walmart for $60, and it was plain black coloured, and doesn't include a charger either! It is better quality than the Amazon one, but still not worthy of $60, let alone $30. I received a refund from Walmart, and I accidentally gave them my old controller. I don't feel bad though, my old controller was bought used and is probably better quality. After I got the Walmart refund, I purchased a new controller at Best Buy for $45 on sale. Still no charger, and it doesn't seem to be as good quality as the old one I had, but again better than the Amazon one.
I encourage everyone to complain to Sony. At most, it costs $10 for them to make their original good quality controllers. These new, "redesigned" controllers probably cost them $5 a pop. Yet, they expect us to pay $60 for the controller, then pay another $10 for a darn charger? You might as well buy generic brand controllers these days: get three or four for the same price as one "official" brand. Some generic controllers even have the Sixaxis motion sensors in them.
