Features
The DUALSHOCK3 wireless controller for the PlayStation3 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. DUALSHOCK3 utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless game play and the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the PlayStation3 at anytime. By integrating all of these features into the popular PlayStation controller design, the DUALSHOCK3 will further enhance the advanced game play experience only available on the PlayStation3 system.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: The price (got it for $25 from LIKETECH)

Cons: The shipping time is pretty long (around 15 days considering they ship from Futian District, PRC), even more so if you order it around a peak time such as late Nov/end of year, but it's worth it (the price is quite good and they even include a USB cable)

1 out of 5 eggsDont be fooled

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: Works when connected via cable.

Cons: Will not charge
Dead spots in the d pad and analog sticks
Not genuine PS3 controller

Other Thoughts: I ordered a Ps3 controller from the seller Liketech on Nov 5th, it finally arrived on the 29th. I used it for maybe 20 minutes total. After leaving it charging overnight I assumed it was all good, unhooked it and started to play a game, before I could even get to the selection of my game I was getting the low battery warning. So I hooked it back up while watching the charge indicator. It would show it was charging for about a second, before switching to a "-", meaning it was doing nothing, not even registering that a controller was connected.

I'm just going to keep it and chock it up as a life lesson, because it does work when connected via cable for now. And since it would leave me without a controller for another month at least of I returned it.

4 out of 5 eggsDualShock 3 Review

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: It's an official Sony brand and you can tell it by the quality. All the buttons feel nice and it's not rigid/rough on your hands like some other knock-off controllers.

It also works with PC (I got it to play fighting games on Steam) if you download a program that tricks the computer into thinking it's an Xbox controller.

Cons: Does not come with a charge cable!

If you are using this on a PS3 you can use the Bluetooth to connect, but on my PC I had to use my graphics tablet's mini USB to USB cable to connect the controller. You can pick up one of these charge cables cheap enough online but just beware of this before you buy this controller.

1 out of 5 eggsCounterfeit

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: $10 cheaper than an average PS3 controller. What's the point of saving $10 if it's not the real deal?

Cons: These controllers are not authentic. After carefully inspecting the box and controller while making comparisons with authentic PS3 controllers I can say that the difference is quite clear. Do not buy these if you're looking for the real deal. I bought this expecting an authentic Sony product, but was fooled. Don't make the same mistake I made.

Pros: I got this for a gift, and the feedback so far so good.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I lost my first shipment package. Then I contacted Newegg customer service to re-send it, and they shipped right away like 2nd day. I am satisfied with the service and fast shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than before

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: Finish allows better handling, snappy triggers

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The listing didn't specify if it came with a charging cable or not, mine did not. Not a negative but would have been nice if it did. The sticks took a couple days to get used to compared to the many years old controller I had but now I've gotten used to them and my thumbs do stick better to them. Same with the overall controller texture, the matte black has less slip on hands and fingers.

1 out of 5 eggsQuality Control? (no pun intended)

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: cost somewhat less

Cons: Defective, right out of the box. Will only continuously work if the rumble is disabled. One rumble and it turns off.

Other Thoughts: Quality control isn't what it used to be!

5 out of 5 eggsBest controller I've used yet

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Black

Pros: Feels great to hold. Plastic is a soft matte black. The sticks are smooth and snap back nicely, the buttons (including the D-pad, which is also fantastic) have good tactile feedback in the form of a soft bump, and while a lot of people complain about the triggers, I find that the way they smoothly depress feels good for things like racing games. I doubt it would be good for shooters or other fast games, though.

Cons: Honestly can't think of anything to complain about, except that triggers really should've been concave, even slightly, as your fingers tend to slowly slide off of them if you press down hard on them.

Other Thoughts: I don't use this with a PS3, so bear that in mind. I use it wirelessly with my Windows 7 PC via a Bluetooth dongle and an XInput wrapper (Google it - don't use MotionInJoy). However, it does also work wired via a mini-USB cable (which isn't included).

Once you get it set up, using it is as easy as turning it on with the PS button, waiting for it to connect and then just using it. Make sure you have a good Bluetooth adapter though. Cheap, no-name ones tend to have terrible range.

Using the XInput wrapper makes the OS see it as an Xbox 360 controller, so every game that works with one will work, but it obviously still just shows the 360 buttons. I've tested it with a few games and a PS1 and PS2 emulator, and haven't had any problems. It just feels so precise and well-built, especially compared to my old 360 controller. Everything is tight and accurate and clicks nicely and everything.

Highly recommended.
