    The Sony DualShock 3 Controller has been specifically designed for the PlayStation 3 in order to have an enhanced and more thrilling gaming experience. This certain controller can do without the usual cords and connectors. You know why? This controller goes wireless and therefore, making the whole gaming experience more fun as you can have more friends over and you all get to play together.

     

    This wireless controller has been specifically innovated to be more responsive and action-filled which brings out the game master within each user. The SIXAXIS motion sensing technology is one of the best in the genre, making the game play experience much more accurate and direct to the point. The Sony DualShock also counts with the now-traditional Playstation vibration system, which translates explosions, crashes, jumps and other game elements into a physical experience for the gamer, making for an even more immersive gameplay.

     

    However, in comparison to other brands like Logitech, the Sony may not be the top of the line option for most buyers. The original PS3 controler is very straightforward in its functions, offering no fancy features or design. This "drawback", however, is often considered an advantage by the more traditional gamers: by keeping it simple, the controller has just enough buttons to be perfectly functional without cluttering its body. Besides, despite not having spectacular features, it is unmatched in terms of durability, responsiveness and ergonomics. When it comes to learning the twists and turns of the item, it is not that hard to learn and get the hang of. It is actually real quick to understand even if the instruction manual it comes with is not very specific. Good thing the brand is really easy to use. The exciting factor about this controller is that you can be far from the gaming screen and still see how it performs at its best. That is something that is missed on a lot of gaming devices from the past.

     

    In the end, the third incarnation of the official DualShock controller remains the very top choice for casual and classic gamers in terms of product quality. Unless you have the specific need for a controller with more buttons, functions or design, Sony's peripheral for the Playstation 3 should be your absolute number one pick.
