3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great either, 21 Nov. 2010
First of all, any similarities between this controller and Sony's Dualshock are purely cosmetic. The buttons are nowhere near as responsive, they're not pressure sensitive and I've found myself having to jam them hard to get any kind of response. It may work with the PS3, but be honest, are you really going to use this over your Sixaxis/Dualshock 3? The analogue sticks aren't the best around, they feel fine but in use they're incredibly twitchy (just take a look at the calibration wizard and you'll see what I mean). It doesn't make this controller completely useless, I'd still take this above the clunky X-Box controller. Personally, I play mostly FPS and RTS on the PC and I pretty much bought this just to play the Grand Theft Auto trilogy. For that it's fine but if you're a little more serious about using a pad over keyboard and mouse, I'd look elsewhere. The controller will work straight of the box but you'll have to download drivers from the manufacturers website to enable vibration.

PROS-
-Relatively cheap
-Based on the ergonomic and comfortable Dualshock
-Vibration/Force Feedback

CONS-
-Overly sensitive analogue sticks
-Buttons can be sluggish
