For me, the SIXAXIS appears to have been a temporary controller bundled in with the initial batches of PS3s and...

The first point of interest is the wireless cabability of the controller. The controller uses bluetooth which allows a constant stream of information from the...

Refinement: The Sony Sixaxis controller is a refined version of the DualShock 2 which in turn was a refinement of the original DualShock which in turn was a refinement of the original PlayStation controller! Over the years not much has changed, if you were to take a Sixaxis back in time to 1995...

At present this is the standard controller for the PS3. It follows the sucessful layout of the Dual shock two controller that was used on the PS2. The controller uses the same traditional dual analogue stick, direction buttions and four action buttons (triangle, square, circle and cross) which...
