Rated 3 out of 10 Don't Buy This Controller...
Useless. Analog Sticks Glitch. Buttons Get STUCK. Requires x2 AAA batteries that last all of 5 minutes. AND... NO SIX AXIS.
Rated 2 out of 10 by deliquium ...No.
I bought two of these when my official controller died - a red one and a black one. Well, for starters, the buttons are far less sensitive than the official controllers. This is fine for casual gaming, adventure games and the sort, but handicaps those playing competitive shooters. I found myself mashing down the firing trigger because my character would stop shooting for seemingly no reason amidst a fire fight. I often miss or skip jumps as well because you have to press so hard. The joysticks, in addition, feel gritty. Games with assisted aim make this passable, but precision aiming won't come easy.
This is the least of the controller's issues. For no reason whatsoever, my red controller stopped working. Doesn't turn on and isn't read by the receiver even with fresh batteries. After two to three weeks of use, it's literally nonfunctional.
The black controller still turns on but no longer syncs to my fat PS3. At all. The receiver stops flashing when I turn the controller on but it refuses to assign a slot no matter how much trial and error I go through.
If you play competitively, enjoy smooth and responsive controls, or demand long-term dependability, then you won't buy these.
Rated 5 out of 10 by weece22 nice try, PDP
i purhcased this controller, then returned it, so, probably going to be a bad review. PDP(maker of this controller) did some things right on this controller, but not for professional gamers. PROS- bulkier shape than dualshock3 controllers, analog sticks are good, responsive buttons, wireless, curved shape at the top(where R1 and L1 buttons are). CONS- takes batteries, d pad is almost as bad as an xbox 360 d pad, has a weird texture/feel to it, loses conncection with your ps3 often. This third party controller did about 1/3 of things that a proper controller needs, but needs to be looked at and given some major improvements.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Huntingking17 Pretty good.
I'm pretty happy with it so far, It doesent dissconnect at all, Very responsive, I was suprised how well it performs the only minor things I dislike are 1 it runs on batteries so no usb cords to keep it charged. The second problem i have is its smaller than i was excpecting not a big deal, I was just hoping it was bigger than the dualshock (its roughly the same size). So i would recommend this if youre looking for a cheap durable controller, But if you have the money I would just get the dualshock.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MisterCh33f Gamestop brand...
I really hate to say this, but I have NEVER been satisified with a gamestop brand controller... while this looks good, the quality of their controllers usually arent discovered untill it is being used. Like the gamestop controllers for xbox 360 where the thumbsticks become stiff and unresponsive and the headset port makes it staticy rendering it useless and making everyone angry.
If someone can prove me wrong after this is released, then I would be sure to change my mind.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Sauceistheboss a good buy....for now.
overall this is a good controller. everything functions the way it should and i havent had any real problems yet. it stinks hat it needs the batteries though. the biggest concern is, that its still a 3rd party controller, and in spite of the fact that pdp has improved over the years, these kinds of remotes have a history of breaking/ not responding/ just randomly spazzing out whenever they want to. if something like this happens i'll write another review, but its doing me well so far.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Bond007 Suprisingly good
So we all know 3rd party controllers suck. Esspecialy for ps3. But i needed a 2nd controller and i saw this one at gamestop. So i bought it and i'm happy to say that it actuly works well. The build of it is good and it feels good in your hands. Rumble is a little weak but hey at least it has rumble at all. Only complain is that the buttons need to be pressed a little harder then you might be used to. So overall, a nice suprise for ps3 owners on a tight budget.
Rated 1 out of 10 by tbclycan How does PDP mean PERFORMANCE Designed Peripherals
Well got it, kinda looked cool. Short and sweet this time, No sixaxis capabilities, disconnects a LOT, unresponsive, will flash a "battery low error" without a low battery, wireless seems to effect response time slightly, pretty decent for PC but if you are using it for PS3, especially SPLIT SCREEN it will ruin the game for you. All in all, do not buy, and try to boycott PDP so we do NOT have to face another pile of plastic like this ever again.

i like the idea of game stop making controllers and what not.
i hope they take what they know about the reliability/solidness of the ps2 controller, make it wireless, and the home button which you can see.
you can see the L1/R1 buttons are kinda curved because our hands just work better when there not try to fit around that edge corner.
i just wish i could have the gamestop car on burnout paradise but i sold my disk to get the digital. i could ride and play in style.
Rated 2 out of 10 by vincent0678 poor quality
ok pros and cons pro- works great, comfortable , good design, and great reaction time. cons- requires 2 AAA batteries, every 5 mins it says batteries low and your character loses controls falls off edges runs in circle runs into walls falls off a cliff this alone isnt worth getting this hunk of junk i recommend duelshock 3 to any1 as it doesnt have the battery issue if it didnt have that id recomend this to anyone at all
