Sony Dualshock 3
Advantages: see below
Disadvantages: see below
Since i can remember i was always playing video games and my first console was the Playstation 1 and followed onto the Playstation 2, the controller was designed for longer play this time. And it looked alot like the Playstation 3 controller and so when i was given a PS3 for my birthday 2 years ago i played it alot and know alot about the controller. This didnt come with the PS3 i was given but was lended to me indefinately by a close relative and it amazed me. The vibration control was superb, PS3 kept to the design through time and this still resembles the playstation 1 gamepad. It really made me like the PS3, you could move the controller like a wheel when playing motorstorm, no longer did one look stupid when getting too immmersed into a game. I looked around for a set of triggers to length the L1 and R1 buttions for shooting games and bought them from ebay cheap. It has the PS3 dashboard button and the select and start button. so look below for the Pros and Cons of the Sony Dualshock 3
->Lightweight so you can play for lengthy periods of time with ease
->Rubbery analog sticks with groves to help support the gamers fingers
->Wireless so no tripping over wires, can come with a lead that recharges the controller directly via a usb port in the PS3
->PS3 'guide' button to navigate the PS3 and functions to do with the controller
->For big handed people the select and start buttons can be very frustarating to press in, it reminds me of a reset button on a toy
->The recharge lead is not very long so expect to play close to the tv which is hard if your playing on a large HDTV.
Overall i give it (3)***out of (5)*****stars
This was a SDpwnage review PS3 is a great console but i wish that there was another configuration of the controller.........PEACE OUT GUYS =P
