PS3 Controller Wireless Pro Elite
This controller is pure garbage! why would you want a xbox controller looking controller for your ps3? -____- #NoFun #NoSwag #TwerkNation #NoLife #XboxWannabe #ToBig
Overall this controller is pretty bad, the joysticks are to sensitive and jerky, the trigger buttons are sticky, the analog sticks are hard to push in and the d pad is glitchy. The design is very nice though with.
i ordered the red one but they send me the black one so i might return the control but the control is good
Doesn't register diagonal directional input.
This use of this controller might depend on the game you play. I play fighting games that require movements like quarter circle directional inputs. This controller is not good for that. At more times than often, it doesn't register a diagonal direction, especially in the middle of combos. I even went to training mode and turned the button input on, then rotated the joystick fully a few times. After looking at the registered input, some of the diagonal inputs really were skipped completely. I love the way it feels and I have no other issues with it, but that one thing ruins it all for me. I don't know how it fairs in other types of games, but don't get it if you're a fighting gamer.
More than bad luck
My original review would have been very good, since the button setup made it very easy for me to switch over from XBOX button configuration to PS3. The problem I have with these are the very short lifespan that they have. My first controller lasted 3 months (roughly 15-20 hr per week) of daily use before the L1 and L2 stopped working. I wrote it off to picking a lemon and went back for a second unit, since they cost a little more than 1/2 what a Sony costs. After 3 months, my replacement unit stopped communicating with the receiver. It still charges and blinks while searching for the connection, to no avail. I'd be interested to learn if anyone else has experienced this.
A good replacement, main, or backup controller
I bought this controller after the demise of my only PS3 controller, although the 1st one of these broke within a week, it was used so I sent it in for another one (Power A gives you a 2 year warranty) no problems since i got a brand new one
This controller is great. If you have never played on a xbox controller, than this controller may take some getting used to. Maybe about 1-3 hours of playing time. I am a mw3 quickscoper and trickshotter and if you throw some fps freeks on this baby, your gameplay will get much better!
I bought this controller because my friends with an XBOX always complain about PS3 controllers. It feels pretty close to a 360 controller. The difference is in the sensitivity of the buttons and the style of the triggers (L1, L2, R1, R2) which are similar to the PS3. There is no lagging or stairs. Overall goo buy if you want a 360 style controller or have friends that like to make up excuses. I play the same on both consoles.
This controller includes: •SIXAXIS motion sensing technology
•Built-in rechargeable battery
•Reverse analog sticks
•Custom designed L2 and R2 buttons
•Dual rumble motors
•Glowing action buttons
•LED player channel indicator lights around "Home" button
•Custom textured grips with full body soft-touch surface feel
•Includes: Wireless Controller, USB Controller Adaptor/Receiver, USB Charging Cable (Mini-B)
. Also you save $20 from buying a normal PS3 controller. Very good for shooting games, and its very durable from drops or rage throws.(NOTE: THIS PROBLOM IS VERY FIXABLE.) But the only problom I had was that the L3 stick shifted up time from time. So if you have a PS3 controller but want a XBOX360 type controller, you should buy this product.
So i do not like the ps3 controller at all. For some reason it causes my hand to cramp after short playtimes. I never have had this problem with the 360 controller. So...I started looking for a ps3 controller designed like the x box controller and ended up picking up this controller. I have had this controller for a few months now and it is amazing. If feels just like the 360 controller and built very well. The only complaint I have is that sometimes the left trigger will sometimes slightly stick, only occasionally....nothing to take away from the controller. I love it and I do play FPS. If you do not like the sensitivity just adjust your settings within the game! BUY IT!!!
