The standard Playstation 3 controller has a very good d-pad and good build quality which is something that's hard to find nowadays. Very useful for emulating older consoles.


  • Very good d-pad
  • 10-bit precision analog sticks, pressure sensitive buttons
  • wired or wireless modes with a Bluetooth adapter.

Using on a PCEdit

Previous Dualshock controllers required a special adapter to work. However, the Dual Shock 3 can connect via usb to a pc without an adaptor and only requires special software to work on a pc. In Windows, an external program needs to be installed to use DS3 controllers.


Use the new XInput Wrapper SCP. Do not use MotioninJoy if you can.


On Linux, QtSixA is available.
