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.

SIXAXIS highly sensitive motion technology
Your natural movements become part of the action. And the controller becomes a natural extension of your body. The SIXAXIS motion-sensing system allows users to maneuver the controller itself. With this system, sensors read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls the controller, all in real-time and with high precision. And it's available in both the SIXAXIS wireless controller and the DUALSHOCK3 wireless controller.

Bluetooth technology
No wires. With the DUALSHOCK3's Bluetooth technology you can play completely untethered.

Multiplayer gaming
Connect up to seven wireless controllers at one once for serious multiplayer gaming.

Charging
Charge the DUALSHOCK3 with the PlayStation3 system using the controller's USB cable. And you can even plug it in during gameplay, so you'll never miss a beat.

So many compatible games! Check game for compatibility.

1 out of 5 eggsI think these could be fakes

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red

Pros: meh.

Cons: I've owned other ps3 controllers from the original six axis to the dual shock 3. I have also been fooled on one occasion where I unwittingly purchased a FAKE controller, from a different website, believing it was the real deal. I could tell right away something was wrong with the controller as it was very stiff I thought I just had to "break it in". Well it broke in less than a year.
I know what an authentic controller feels like and I am very suspicious of this Red controller.
First off the plastic is thin. The red light shines through it and you can see the outline of its circuits.
Second when playing a game that requires precise aiming like Call of Duty it fails miserably. My other controllers work fine in the game.
Third I have used it for well over 3 months. I don't think this controller can be "broken in".

Other Thoughts: I can't play COD very well with this controller, but other games that don't require precision play fine( like street fighter or shadow of the colossus etc.)
If this controller is authentic its possible Sony has just lowered its quality. Seriously though I paid over 45 bucks for this and I can't help but feel like I got ripped off.

4 out of 5 eggsThin plastic

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red

Pros: Works well.

Cons: The plastic of the controller's body is so thin that the light from the red indicator lights near the charging port in the back bleeds through the plastic. This is only a cosmetic problem, but I feel like they should have at least reinforced the area with a strip of electrical tape or foil that would block the light. These controllers are too expensive to have cosmetic defects.

Other Thoughts: Good price for the controller at the time.

5 out of 5 eggsGenuine PS3 Dualshock 3

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red

Pros: Same controller that comes with the red system bundle, G-of-war bundle, etc.

It's genuine and not some $10 Chinese knock-off. Well I guess it's technically made in China, but it's 1st party Sony.

Cons: None. Reminds me of my ps1 controller.

Other Thoughts: It baffles me how some people can be so uninformed that they purchase knock-off controllers and don't know until they get them and they break or don't work.

That fact that newegg lets 3rd party sellers try to pawn their "P3" knock-offs on newegg is disgusting.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks As Expected Great

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red

Pros: Works like it should. But it is great how crisp the controls feel on a new paddle its like that new car smell.

Cons: No USB cord but none of the Sony ones seem to come with them this is my 3rd or 4th PS3 Controller. Come on Sony for this price you could include a USB cord and a extender i hate having 1 cord to charge all my controllers.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is great con is a Sony thing. i used to buy Nintindo(8-bit) controllers for 5-15 bux from Funcoland.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Unit, Sony Said Tough Luck

This review is from: SONY DualShock 3 Wireless Controller Red

Pros: It was a very good price through Newegg a year ago and it appears to still be an extremely competitive price. All the general pros you'd consider about a branded playstation controller too.

Cons: I ordered 12/24/2011, the button began failing on the left control stick on 2/10/2013. It lasted 14 months when my first controllers lasted 5 years each. I have no kids and I treat my electronics compulsively well so I was shocked to say the least.

The rep acknowledged I was just outside the 12 month warranty and I was outside the 25 day grade period as well. They said I should just buy another controller because repair would be just as much as a new controller.

They're right that it just missed the warranty window by days and perhaps that's ok with you that they said tough luck with no consolation. But, for me, if a company sells an expensive product with their brand name that's designed to last for years and it fails after just one, at least empathize that it's very very tough luck and cut me a discount on a new controller. Sony could learn a lot from Logitech.
