360 style PS3 controller
« on: August 30, 2010, 10:59:43 AM »
For all the PS3 dads who prefer the 360 layout, Toys R Us has a controller on sale that's a bit bigger than the Dualshock 3 with offset analog sticks.  Joystiq put up a hands-on vid and said it performed well.  Only downside is that it wasn't bluetooth and takes up a USB slot for the wireless dongle.  I plan on picking one up this week, its $34.99.

Looks decent, the dongle doesn't actually take up a usb port. It has a usb in port on the front side, so you still have a port. Amazon has this controller.

I spent some time in Killzone 2 mp with this controller last night.  The buttons and sticks aren't as loose as the DualShock 3 but the d-pad didn't feel as responsive.  I didn't notice any sort of lag and scored several headshots so it seemed to perform well.

The wireless dongle you plug into the USB slot does not offer a pass through.  It has a mini USB slot in the front that can only be used for charging the controller.  So if you don't have a lot of open USBs, its something to consider.

Overall, I'd say that if you prefer the 360 controller you should probably pick this up.

I use the wired xbox360 controller on the PS3. I now actually game on it on. I hate the PS3 controllers. I have had it since launch and never liked playing games on it, but using the xbox controller changed that. Love it. I would have tried this if the wired controller set up didn't work. looks cool and wireless.
