Manufacturer's Description

The newly designed SIXAXIS wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 system enables gamers to harness the potential of the world's most powerful computer entertainment console. Developed by refining the popular original PlayStation controller, the de facto standard in gaming with several hundred millions units sold worldwide, the SIXAXIS controller features motion-sensing technology to detect natural and intuitive movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user's body.

The SIXAXIS controller utilizes Bluetooth technology for wireless gameplay and the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the hardware at anytime. Furthermore, unlike other interactive controllers, the SIXAXIS controller is easy to set-up and is compatible with today's monitors and televisions.

By integrating all these features into the original PlayStation controller design, Sony Computer Entertainment, together with content developers, plans to further enhance the gameplay experience of next generation computer entertainment.

The wireless SIXAXIS controller for the PS3 picks up where the Dual Shock 2 Controller for the PS2 left off, with a few new features, a slight redesign, and (lamentably) the loss of the rumble function. Sony have clearly gone for the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' approach for the overall design.

The most significant of the new features is, of course, the SIXAXIS Motion Sensing capability. Like the much-vaunted, innovative controllers for the Nintendo Wii, the SIXAXIS enables PS3 users to experience a new way of interacting with games. It remains to be seen just how game developers choose to exploit this new technology, but it is already being put to good use in forthcoming titles such as Warhawk (flying game) and in MotorStorm. Although it takes a bit of getting used to, you can always switch it off and use the conventional D-Pad or analogue sticks for directional controllers until you get the hang of it!

The new PS button in the centre of the controller is a great, versatile new addition to the controller. You use this button to exit games (something that wasn't necessary on the PS2), or to switch off the PS3 remotely (a very useful touch - no more getting out of bed to switch off the console after a late-night DVD). You can also use this button to switch off the controller when you are not using it, but still using the PS3 (like when watching a DVD or listening to music), which is a great touch. Being wireless, you need to recharge the controller from time to time (this is done simply by plugging the controller into the PS3 console via the USB cable provided with the controller). You may choose to play with the controller connected anyway, of course, but you will soon get very used to the freedom of the wireless controller.

By Robbie on 25 Mar. 2007
The controller itself features motion sensing capabilities. Their usage within games is limited and does not play as a big part as the Wii's controller. The motion sensing was presented as a bonus to the game developer.

Using the motion sensing is real and fun and it is possible to drive using it in Formula 1 Championship Edition and Motorstorm. The only problem is, is it needs practice and there is a very small time delay in using the motion sensing, although it will not affect the gameplay noticeably.

There is a lack of vibraration, but having bought a PS3 and using the controller, you do not really notice it and forget about it - strange but true, although I would still welcome vibraration and I can cope without it.

Battery life on the controller is excellent and has a very rapid charge time.

The final thing about it is that one controller is already provided with your PS3 and a second one is not really needed at this time as many games are only one player, with the online multiplayer almost replacing the traditional split screen multiplayer. Although in the future, split screen games may come back.

Overall, the controller is fun and good to use with its negative issues quickly ignored due to the brilliant games on the system.

I purchased this so called reconditioned unit for my Nephew for Christmas and when he went to use it one of the joysticks would not spring back into the central position.

As there was no packaging outside of a jiffy bag I strongly suspect that this unit is not reconditioned but second hand. I have emailed the seller but does not respond.

DON'T BUY FROM THIS SELLER - IT'S A CON!!!!!!!!!

When the sixiaxis was first announced everyone was very annoyed that it didn't have a rumble function. But now there is good news Sony has settled its legal dispute with the people who make the rumble function and a new improved Sixaxis with rumble will be available in the near future. So my advice is not to go and waste your cash on this model and wait for the new pad to be released later this year.

All was good for about 6 weeks. As always I take care of my things-so it hasn't been misused,chucked or dropped etc. But last week the R2 button stopped functioning,so took off the trigger and still nothing,although it worked during gameplay,strange. And today 11/4/16 the whole thing turned itself off and alas I've had to back to the less responsive controller

I do not understand why people complain about this control. It isn't that bad. It's just a control and you play games with it. OK it doesn't have rumble but it isn't something t be missed that much, motion sense is better for me. It is a good control that allows to play my games.

This is the great new controller for the sony ps3. As its name suggests it has six-axis which is capable of capturing the controllers movement in the gamers hands. Though the loss of rumble is a downpoint of the control it makes up for the loss with six-axis a device in the controller which tracks your every movement and realays it to the ps3 and allows you to use the control in a way to play the game differently. eg. in resistance you can shake the control to get the chimera out of your face after they jump on you.

There are six-axis. 1)Roll which is the tilt of the controller from left to right. 2) pitch determines whether the front or back of the controller is facing up or down 3) Yaw means how much you have rotated the controller left to right. 4)x-axis forwards and back. 5) y-axis left and right. 6)z-axis up and down. these are the six-axis the controller will compute to let you feel more in the game.

Another new feature of the six-axis is the ps button which allows you to turn on the ps3 from sleep mode and allows you to connect the controller to the ps3 wirelessly. it will also let you control the menu whilst playing a game. eg. similar to xbox-360 menu which provides options such as return to the main menu.

A great thing about the ps3 is it allows up to seven controllers to be able to connect to the ps3. If you are player 1 to 4 for example a light will appear on the top of your controller to tell you what number you are. Whereas 5-7 you have to add up eg. for player 5 the light under number 1 will light up and the light under 4 to show you are player 5.

Have great fun with this new, fantastic controller i know i did
