Guide: How to use a PS3 Controller in Windows 8 Without Requiring Internet Access

Although Windows 8 detects the PS3 controller with the proper name, it is unresponsive without 3rd party drivers. This step by step guide teaches you how to use the PS3 controller in Windows 8 (and all other Windows) in local mode, meaning no internet access required. (Microsoft, PC, PS3, Sony, Windows 8)

Be sure to block the drivers with your firewall to keep it clean and simple :)

A LOT of drivers and programs that work perfectly fine don't work in Windows 8. Especially custom and third party drivers like this.

Also the drivers usually need to be online to work, these are an offline version. The drivers site has been down a lot lately, and when it does you can't access the control panel.

yeah...but the info is also on the website. It's not some secret. I'm just surprised there is an article for this.

How do you read about using a PS3 controller with windows 8 without an internet connection on the internet if you have no internet connection with which to read the article?

A bit of a paradox.

Reading it on my phone right now. Just saying.
