totally not happy with my purchase,i have hardly used it and its not functioning properly already.it seemed a cheap version from the start,its lighter and more or less nearly see through,not good quality like the ones i have had before!!a full refund would be the least you could do,it states that it is the official ps3 controller.i will tell u now that its not!!!

i had xbox 360 since lauch and when i decided to sell up and buy a superior ps3 i was uneasy as i hasnt played on a dualshock for years since ps2 days but after a week it was comfy as anything and im very happy with the controller,even the odd style shoulder buttons which are fine and better than the awful LB and RB buttons on the 360 controller whcih i always disliked.

  Get 1... or even 2!

I held off buying one of these for ages because I saw no advantage in having a controller which rumbled an could potentially break your concentration. However when one of my SIXAXIS controllers started suffering from over-COD-ification (constantly running in Call of Duty kills the right stick) I plumped for a DUALSHOCK3 and haven't regretted it.

It's more than simply rumbling, many games use the vibration alongside visual queues... if it wasn't for that little buzz my horse would have bucked me far more in Red Dead Redemption and it helps in racing games to know if you're clipping curbs!

Those who're adverse to the 35 quid price tag forget that it plugs into the existing controller charging cables (which incidentally are as cheap as chips USB cables) and doesn't require extra outlay to go wireless, not like the Xbox controllers. I also like the fact the lights are front-mounted, meaning that when it's almost time to charge you're not distracted by constant blinking like on the Xbox. There may be some third-party wireless controllers for cheaper, but these ones beat the rest hands-down for sturdiness and reliability.

All-in-all I'd say to get one of these as soon as your SIXAXIS starts to wear a little, you won't regret it.

  very good but expensive!

considering that i spent 35 quid on this, i thought it would have at least come with a charger which it didnt. i feel a little dissapointed about that, but on the actual controller itself, i think it is a very good design as it is simple and very light. the baterry on these last me ages, but this maybe because i dont play my ps3 that much, but still it feels that i rarely have to charge it, and when i do it charges quickly. overrall this is quite pricey, but as it is essential you will unfortunately have to pay it, and its worth getting this official one other than a cheap one, as they are not reliable.

  The one and only

This controller cannot be beaten, the design is great and looks sleek and stylish. They are very reliable and never break i still have fully working ps1 and 2 controllers. It is very confortable to hold while gaming and your hands still wont hurt after an extended period. the button are very sensative and responsive which a good controller needs. It also does not require any batteries so money is saved. The battery life beats many controllers with many hours of gaming from a full charge. overall you cannot beat this controller and is a must buy otherwise you will not be able to play games.
