How important is your game controller? Would you say that the game is more important than the controller or that they are equally important? Hard-core PlayStation gamers will definitely agree that they are just as important because in order to enjoy a good game you need to be able to get a good grip of the action and have a feel of what’s going on while you play, if you had an unresponsive controller playing any PlayStation 3 game wouldn’t feel any different than playing a super Nintendo game.

Today we are going to review one of the most important accessories for any PlayStation 3 gamer, the controller. PlayStation has had two official controllers which work with the PS2 gaming console, the first one is a Logitech controller, a better version would be the dual shock 2 and the latest version is the dual shock 3 Sixaxis, let’s take a look at each one of them.

Logitech Controller

Even though this controller was bundled with several PlayStation units it is not the most convenient and comfortable controller to play with mostly due to the fact that you can’t get a solid grip on the body of the controller and joysticks, the buttons are not pressure sensitive and we can’t say too much about the vibration feature, overall the Logitech controller is pretty much the worse controller that has ever been bundled with a PlayStation unit.

The Dual shock 2

This controller features several dramatic improvements over the Logitech controller, the body is very sturdy and you can get a pretty good grip of this device while playing a game, the buttons are pressure sensitive and you can get full control of the joysticks which also act as buttons, overall this is a very solid game controller.

Enter the Dual Shock 3 Sixaxis – A Customized Gaming Peripheral

This new PlayStation controller takes all the great features from the dual shock 2 in order to make an even better controller. The dual shock 3 is a Bluetooth wireless controller which can be charged through a USB cable that is connected to the console, once it has reached full charge you can unplug it and enjoy all of its Bluetooth wireless gaming capabilities. This game controller uses a lithium-ion battery which makes the controller a bit thicker and heavier than the dual shock 2.

Another great feature shown in the dual shock 3 is that the R2 triggers have changed a bit and they now feel more like the triggers of an actual gun. When it comes to the vibration, the dual shock 3 is now able to distribute the intensity of the vibration according to the conditions of the game so if you’re being shot on the right side of your body (in the game of course) the right side of the controller will vibrate more than the left side and vice versa, if you have been playing with the dual shock 2 you know that such controller can’t simulate this experience.

The Sixaxis in the dual shock 3 can be thought of as a replacement of the D-Pad, this means that if you tilt the controller forward the game would react the same way as if you were to pressing the top arrow of the D-Pad, the same thing would happen if you were to tilt the controller left, right or backwards. Some gamers may feel that the Sixaxis feature will eventually replace the D-Pad. Overall the dual shock 3 is a very solid controller, it will feel good in your hands and will enhance your PlayStation gaming experience.
