I bought the 8bitdo receiver because it specifically states that it works with PS3 dual-shock 3 controllers. With the PS3 controller you need to install 8bitdo software to pair the receiver with the PS3 controller. I got this part to work on 3 computers (2 windows 10 and 1 windows 7), the software said the controller and receiver paired. I then plugged the receiver into my Playstation classic and powered it up and turned my PS3 controller on and it rumbled and synced with the receiver.. so you would think I'm good to go, right?
NOPE. Just like the review a couple posts down said, the system doesn't even recognize the controller is plugged in. This is after it's been paired.
I emailed 8bitdo to make sure I did everything correctly, and I did. I even tried both methods they gave me to install the software on Windows 10 (even though both methods paired fine) and neither method worked once I plugged the PS3 controller in to the Playstation Classic.
I emailed 8bitdo back stating ALL of this and they replied back "Hello there. You can try other systems". How can they list this product as supporting PS3 controllers when it clearly doesn't? I cannot recommend this for anyone trying to get a PS3 controller to work and I can't recommend this company after the lack of customer support I've received.
UPDATE: 8bitdo contacted me and finally showed me how to get this working. There's a "trick" that's needed to change the PS3 controller's "connection mode". After the error message comes up stating that the controller needs to be plugged into the port, press SELECT+DOWN (this changes the PS3's connection mode).. the controller will turn off, simply turn it back on and it should work.
I never hesitated to put in my pre-order.
That was a mistake.
I got the unit in the mail on Dec 31st, and since I was off work, I decided to try it out. I plugged the adapter into the console, turned it on and tried to pair my DS3 according to the instructions, but it wouldn't pair. I combed the internet for advice, and found the DS3 tool download. I downloaded that, and while using Google Translate on my phone to help me figure out what to do (because the program is in Japanese), I got the adapter and my controller paired.
Success, right? Not hardly.
I plugged the adapter into the console, turned it on, and once everything was loaded up, I turned on my controller. The blue light on the adapter is solid, as is the red LED in the #1 spot on the DS3, but the console says it doesn't recognize the controller. Hitting L1+R1+Select makes the controller rumble, and if you press that combo over and over again, it cycles through the strength of the rumble, but otherwise, the controller doesn't do anything; and to add insult to injury, the controller sporadically disconnects.
At this point, I haven't tried an XBOX One, or 360 controller, a Wii U Controller, or another 8bitdo product. I don't have a PS4 DS4 to test, but I don't want to buy one just for this either.
I was hoping this would work, and I was prepared to buy another one to compliment it, but not anymore.
Thanks to a comment on this review, a method was made known to me to make my DS3 function with the PS Classic. Once the controller has been paired with the adapter, and the PS Classic is on (Meaning the light on the PS Classic is Green, the light on the USB adapter is solid blue, and the light on the DS3 is solid red), Pressing "SELECT + DOWN" will turn the controller off, and pressing the "PS" button on the DS3 will turn it back on. Then you should have no problem. It worked for me, however, now there's a cursor near the top left of my screen. Hopefully, that will be remedied with a future firmware update, or by the modding community. It doesn't impact gameplay though.
