I wasn't sure whether or not to bother paying out for one of these imported Dualshock 3 controllers but I am so glad that I eventually did.

GT 5 Prologue swayed me as there just wasn't any form of feedback from the original six axis controller which in my opinion really hurt the game. However with one of these the game is vastly improved the rumble is very subtlety used more so than with the older Dualshock 2s on the PS2.

You can feel the gear changes, rumble strips, collisions and even the weight of the car shifting. This alone has made it a worthwhile purchase for me. Also many other games are supported and the list is growing quickly.

Even Resistance Fall of Man is much improved with the rumble feature though you have to get the rumble update via the latest multiplayer patch as it does not auto update for the rumble features.

Seeing as there will be a considerable wait until they officially launch in the UK my advice splash out and treat yourselves you won't regret it. Happy gaming.

After having bought this product from the cheapest seller (not at all smart here) I found that when unattached to a USB charging cable (which is not included with this product), there was significant lag and in some cases no response at all from when I used the buttons and sticks on the controller. From the information I have gathered online, it seems as though if the controller you receive has the Model No. of CECHZC2H, then the controller will have been from Hong Kong and will be significantly more likely to be faulty. I do not recommend the product with that Model No. Other No.s such as CECHZC2E (this being the number of the controller which came with my console) function perfectly and you should always opt for these. So, whichever seller you select to purchase this item from, and I don't recommend that you do, be sure to check the Model No. of the product once having received the item.

I gave myself the choice to buy a Dualshock 3 or a game, and to be honest i was torn between it, i mean c'mon £40 for a control pad that just has the rumble feature added to it!

But i made the choice to get a Dualshock 3 and i admit i was slightly dissapointed with it at first, until i tried playing a game with the Sixaxis again, that is.

There is such a huge difference with entertainment in games with the Dualshock 3, i adore the controller now! and to be honest im not sure i could play with the Sixaxis again!

There a plenty of noticable differences:

It has rumble (obviously)

It is heavier, but not dramitically heavier, it makes the control feel much better and as others say not as cheap.

It has different plastic case, the Sixaxis is all shiny and slippery while the Dualshock 3 has a less shiny case and is much more firm to hold, its a small difference but it makes the control pad a hell of alot better!

The analog sticks are much easier to press in, a little push and it will go in.

The L2 and R2 buttons are slightly more inwards then the Sixaxis and they feel harder to push in, which feels much better in my opinion.

What can i say about the Dualshock 3? Well i can not play on my PS3 without it now, if you have a choice between a game and a Dualshock 3, absolutely go for the Dualshock, its a small difference but makes the PS3 just that much better to play on!

Buy one! or two, or three, its up to you!

After playing MGS4/MGO at TGS 2007; Japan, I realized that the DualShock that was present there, replacing the SIXAXIS, was different. No, it's not the weight, yes the sticks are more sensitive and raised, but that's not the main reason for my liking. Let me explain.

In MGS4 (and other games, I'm using shooting in this example), when the enemy shoot at you from a side, say the left side, then the controller vibrates more on the left side. If a car just got blown up, behind you, then the lower part of the controllers vibrates. Basically, the vibration's direction indicates where a certain impact is coming from. In Gran Turismo 5, if a car slam you on the right in a hard shoulder, then, you guessed it, it'll vibrate on the right, with little vibration on the left (mind you, that's pretty handy if your driving with the in-car view, beats having to switch cameras all the time to see where the hit came from).

This version, DS3, is not just another vibrating controller like its predecessors. It's an improved version. It's slightly heavier than the DS2 (the PS2's), but that's much better than the SIXAXIS, which feels like those remote controlled plastic cars controllers; light and could break easily.

The motion control is still there, for anyone who still likes that feature. But it's better to have both. This is a must buy for anyone looking to purchase a PS3 as only the MGS4/80GB PS3 bundle is confirmed to have the DS3 controller with it. All other PS3 packages/bundles will have the SIXAXIS instead, so you can see why it's a must purchase.

BTW; there's no region lock on this, so you can basically import this from import sites and still use them (playasia.com has ceased distribution in EU territories mind you).
