The DualShock 3 wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 system provides the most intuitive game play experience with pressure sensitive buttons 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. The DualShock 3 wireless controller utilises Bluetooth technology for wireless gameplay and the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the hardware.
  • Pressure sensitive buttons that rumble with each action making every impact feel like you're right in the game
  • Sixaxis highly sensitive motion technology senses your every move
  • Features Bluetooth technology for wireless game play - the PlayStation 3 system can support up to seven wireless controllers at one time
  • Can be charged through the PlayStation 3 system using the controller's USB cable

 Mild disappointment with the Dual Shock 3

| | See all andy35711's reviews (1)

The Dual Shock 3 is EXACTLY the same as the sixaxis which is possibly the best controller available, if a bit too small for larger hands. That's why I've given it 5 stars. However, the 'rumble' feature is unimpressive. It feels weaker than the previous Dual Shock or 360 rumble. This is possibly to maintain battery life. Anyway, nice as it is to have rumble again, I couldn't recommend spending £35 for the occasional soft buzz if your original sixaxis still works fine. It's nice but not £35 worth of nice. Just a shame the motor's not a bit stronger. But, if you need a new controller anyway and are expecting to pay £22 for a sixaxis, then I'd pay the extra for the rumble. It's nice not great.

 Worth the wait

At last.... all the things that were wrong with the last controller have been fixed! Feels more stable and well made, without being so clumpy and heavy as the X360 controller. I have to admit I had forgotton how much of an extra dimension the rumble gives you in gameplay..... in Topspin 3 for example, I now know when I hit a good shot.... cant wait to try it out on a few more games! Better late than never Sony!

The sixxasis controller is great. It did what it was supposed to do and was very light and conformatable.

This controller is not much different at all to be honest. The vibration function is much weaker than the duslshock2 for the ps2 and im quite dissapointed by that.

People are complaining that it's heavy... Are you serious!? This thing is a tiny bit heavier and hardly noticable when you're playing games. In my opinion, the extra tiny bit of weight makes this controller better than the sixxasis alone - never mind the feble vibrations.

Overall it's a good controller. But not worth the retail price of 34, or 39 pounds in some stores.

Don't get excited about this as it's not anything to be excited about.

 From the opinion of a sony fanboy...

Yeh its really good, good weight, smooth and black, has buttons, has all you could need from a controller. Looks better than the fisher price sexbox controllers, without the need of b84rz. Buy some.
