PlayStation 3 has been launched since 2006 but the Sony DualShock 3 is not that old. There is a whole story behind it as there was a patent dispute between Sony and Immersion. That led to the production of controllers with the rumble system because the force feedback system was already patented by Immersion. That time it was all disappointing for the users but later on, Sony launched the Sony Dualshock 3 wireless controller to compensate.
So now we got the new sony DualShock 3 pc with all the advanced features that one looks for in a controller. The Sixaxis was a motion-sensing ability that was super cool at that time but the rumble free controller was a need of time that later came. You can get a good quality responsive gaming wheel to get a better gaming experience. A WiFi extender and a Dualshock WiFi adapter will make a complete set of all the essentials for gaming.
There are downloadable patches that will allow you to add any features to your old controller. That way, using the old body, you can enjoy the new feat. The Sony PlayStation online system provides a free service to download the retroactive patches.
The cost of this Sony DualShock 3 PC is higher than a normal controller of this kind but the rumble support totally justifies it. This system should have been in the previous models as well.
The weight of this one is a little higher than that of the predecessor, other than that, we couldn’t find much difference. The Sixaxis, the previous form of this controller was also great but that was lightweight so the control was not as stable as it is now in the DualShock 3.
Performance During Games
When played with different games like the Heavenly Sword, the rumble support was not seen to work properly. Although, Resistance: Fall of Man showed the real work this controller is capable of doing. It totally outperformed in Resistance when used as a first-person shooter. The feeling that you get when firing and take hits, was totally improved with the rumble support and gave more of a real experience.
As compared to the original Sixaxis, the Sony Dualshock 3 wireless controller is a little heavier but all the users feel like it is a good thing. It makes the device more controllable and handy when playing games. When holding it in your hand, it feels more real and considerable.
Some people find the Sixaxis to be so lightweight that it doesn’t even feel good in hands. So, in case you don’t find it appealing, you will love what the Dualshock 3 pc offers.
DualShock 3 Motion Sensing Feature
Just like the previous model, this one also has motion sensing capabilities that allow it to perform better.
Sony Dualshock 3 pc provides wireless Bluetooth connectivity. This way the whole usage process becomes way easier.
DualShock 3 Responsiveness
The controller gives a crisp response on every click and improves the whole gaming experience. Games like Resistance, Super StarDust HD, and Folklore are played so smoothly and the rumble support makes the experience extra efficient.
This controller actually does the job right so the credit must be given to it. When it comes to the classic PlayStation controllers, all of them have a build quality that can never go wrong and deliver the best performance.
This is a fantastic PlayStation 3 controller that has all the essential features one can look for. This controller might not work with all of the PS3 owned games but the ones that it is compatible with will provide the crispiest results. The drifting of the cars and firing on a target will not feel any better with any option other than the Sony DualShock 3 pc controller.
