A great controller

A few years ago I bought a Playstation 3 and that came with a Sixaxis controller. The problem is that it came with one controller and not much fun when friends come over because you want to play against each other! I decided to buy a new controller and came across the Dual Shock 3 controller.

The controller looks exactly like its predecessor, the Sixaxis controller, the controller is also available in more colours. The controller is exactly the same as the Sixaxis only the controller is quite a bit heavier and is a bit getting used to.

The controller is wireless and you can play around 5 hours without recharging it. Charing can be done via the included USB cable and you can charge the controller while you are using it.

The dual shock has the following buttons;

L1, L2 (the buttons on the left index finger)
R2, R2 (the buttons with your right index finger)
Left stick (use your thumb with your left mainly for walking / driving)
Right stick (use your right thumb mainly looking around)
The arrow keys (could also be used for walking / driving but also for certain actions)
Square, Triangle, X, Circle (used for all the different actions)
Select and Start button (self-explanatory)
And last but not least the Playstation button (with this button you will go to the Playstation)

Through the vibrator (shock) some games feel are more realistic when you for example fire a weapon or when you make a collision you can feel the controller shaking. The level of vibration also vary to make it even more realistic.

The price of 30 pounds I think is a disadvantage but you do get worth your money. It's always something you don't consider when buying a game console that you need to buy this to. But I would say it's worth the money with the vibration and it's really easy and comfortable to use.

The advantages of this controller are of course vibration for that extra realism. The motion as you can see a nice extra a convenient USB connector that you can plug into your Playstation.

The Dual Shock is a great controller with great features that improves the realism of the games. This controller is a must for anyone with a Play station 3.
