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.
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!
- The plastic case is not so shiny, and feels less slippery if greasy.
- The plastic case is stronger and doesn't creak.
- The L2 and R2 triggers seem slightly easier to press in and the plastic is more grippy, so your fingers don't slip off so much.
- Clicking the analog sticks in feels slightly easier.
Obviously it also rumbles, and don't worry about the extra weight, it's not much different to a Dual Shock 2.
TWO were fulfilled by AMAZON themselves, if I only bought one I would not be any the wiser, other to think it was a foreign one, it looked like a real one, but Hong Kong code version (see below).
The first thing that made me suspicious was there was no CE safety mark on the item, nor on the box, but as it had the Hong Kong code, I was annoyed it was not made for the UK, but as a lower cost slightly would have put up with it, as Amazon would have had to guaranteed them.
BUT when I opened the 2nd, it had the identical serial number!
I rang Sony; they said it was definitely a fake. I rang Amazon, they were useless, had to contact several times, only said send it back for a refund. The problem being, by then they had increased in price and as they would not just replace, I had to pay more for the new ones I required. That was really unacceptable as they had send out dodgy counterfeit goods. Amazon didn't care either they were fake, returned in the end for a full refund and bought elsewhere.
The 3rd came from a Marketplace seller. This one was a genuine Sony, which was good, but had a unfortunately had a code of: CECHZC2H - which the last H means it is made for Hong Kong (should have an E on the end for Europe/UK) - it works fine, but Sony said no guarantee in the UK if it goes wrong, other than through the seller themselves, which was a small seller on Amazon, so hope it doesn't go wrong!
This one also did not have the CE safety approval label on it like the UK ones do, although I'm sure as it is Sony made it is ok, it is still illegal to sell it in Europe without the safety CE label.Read more ›
