These keypads can be attached to the controller and don’t affect the functionality factor of the game. Such keypads can be charged through a USB port on the Playstation 3, making them easy to use and control. These keypads can also be attached to motion technology enabled SIXAXIS wireless controllers and provide ease of usage and internet access.
