Sony Sixaxis ... Engine creating experiences that were never thought possible, a controller was needed that would enable your experience to match its potential. Enter the new SIXAXIS wireless controller. Utilizing sensors designed to read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls, the SIXAXIS controller allows game play to become a natural extension of the player's body.

The PS3 SIXASIS is a great controller just like the classic PS1/PS2 the design stayed the same. This is the perfect controller I cannot say anything about the slick design. As you may know this controller is wireless so you may use it from anywhere in the room so no messy wires hanging around. And the battery lasts very long I don't have to charge it very often but i don't play hours every day either. Only bad this about this controller is that unlike the PS1/PS2 controllers this does not have dual shock so there is no rumble which is a shame. This is because Sony could not get rights for the technology. Sony what happened? Well good news ... Read the complete review

With every new generation of Sony controllers, we've seen small, subtle changes, drawing closer to the idea peripheral. The Sixaxis controller is the next step from the DualShock 2 PS2 controllers, and is noticabley different in several respects. The first thing I noticed upon lifting the controller was its weight - or lack of it. Lacking the vibrators from the previous iterations of controller means the Sixaxis is lighter than I would have liked, to the extent of feeling cheap. Thankfully, this was the only disappointment I faced. The Sixaxis controller is wireless, which is a great change, but better than that it charges by USB cable. Changing ... Read the complete review

There is not much to say about a controller but what i have to say is positive. It is a nicely designed controller and is connected to the PS3 wirelessly. The original design for the playstation3 controller was a boomerang shaped controller and looked horrible. Though there was much debate but the sony siaxis controller came out with the PS3 on the 23rd of March 2007. Controller Setup: There is not much setup at all, all you really have to do is connect the controller with a universal USB to one of the four playstation 3 USB slots at the front of the console. Then the PS3 should start to charge and should be ready to play with within a few minutes ... Read the complete review

Sony did originally plan to change the entire design of the controller but decided to stick with the base design from the previous controllers, which was a smart move on their part. Then controller is wireless, a new feature for "out of the box" controllers and is charged using a supplied usb cable. Each charge lasts roughly 2-3 days of moderate use in my opinion and charge times are only a few hours. The range in which the controller accepts use is very very far so you wont have to worry about being disconnected from the console. The new PS button on the controller allows users to access a seperate pause menu which gives ... Read the complete review

This is the PS3s basic official controller. There is this, the SIXAXIS, and there is the Dualshock 3. The only difference between the two devices is that the Dualshock has a rumble effect whereas the SIXAXIS does not. By removing a rumble effect in this controller, the device is cheaper and lighter than its counterpart. Some people prefer the extra weight of the Dualshock but if, like me, you prefer it light, this is the one for you. By not having a rumble effect, if you are once again like me, you will not have a mild heart attack when you crash into a wall at high speeds in a racing game and the game pad violently squirms in your hands. I have ... Read the complete review
