GamePro cracked open the PS3's new DualShock 3 to see how this new rumble-enhanced controller compares to the Sixaxis and DualShock 2.
I notice that it hasn't had 1 disconnect durring game play unlike my old sixaxis controllers.
I haven't had many disconnects with the sixaxis to begin with. The main cause of the disconnect is interfering blu-tooth devices. BTW, didn't disagree with you cause I don't have a Dual Shock 3 yet.
Charging it before I use it. Can't wait to try out Rrrrrrrrr rumble!
i never had 1 disconnect during game old with sixaxis controllers and none with New DualShock 3 the new DualShock 3 feel better because it has more weight on it
The controller that shipped with my ps3 did that constantly, the extra i bought never did. Regardless, i preordered gt5p & a ds3 today.
Sixaxis controller disconnects on its own? Never happened to me before luckily. BUT, nonetheless DS3 is the way to go.
Sometimes my controller causes the person I am playing in a FPS to spin around, it pisses me off sometimes because it does it at the wrong time.
ordered mine from play asia...no disconnects like the original...funny how i never really see people actually post about it...i think the rrod over shadowed it..
disconnects happen sometimes. i want my ds3.want
Agree...this used to happen to me on Resistance a lot when it first came out which would result in me point my weapon in the air and spinning around while I got jacked up lol. It hasn't happened in the last month or so though. Even worse was on the 360 when I would play Bioshock and would regenrate my charachter would unload a precious clip of ammo while waiting for the vitachamber doors to open - essentially ensuring a quick death when I got out. Still one of the best games ever though...
i didnt know i could get DS3 yet, and i just bought another sixaxis a few weeks ago....Damn
DS3 is vastly superior to Suxaxus. I'd like to start off by saying that yes, I'm the real Bill Gates and yes I've had a PS3 since launch. Great system. The new controllers are heavier and they don't feel as cheap. - Your friendly neighborhood Bill Gates
Actually you started off by saying "DS3 is vastly superior to Suxaxus." Anyways, can't wait for the Dualshock, although I had no problems w/ my sixaxis. Aside from it had no rumble.
Don't correct foo'. - Your friendly neighborhood Bill
the best thing about the DS3 is the weight. i wish they would have cured the triggers out though.
i've actually come to like the triggers now, i wasn't sure about them when i first got the console, but since then i've found they really do work
BUT the weight. The weight has a good feel to it when I play, but when it drops it breaks pretty easy. I have 3 controllers one that has some lose bolt or w.e it is inside that shakes around and turns off from time to time and use to have a controller that the R1,R2,L2,L1 were all ripped off because my lil brother threw it. I bought a brand new 1 with warranty and got the 1 with rip buttons replaced so I have 2 spanking new 1s now. Im waiting for dual shock3 to get the shacky 1 replaced my friend going to buy 1 and im going to pay for his warranty to get it replaced.
The Dualshock 3 is awesome. Perfect weight, durable, great battery life, charges fast, excellent SIXAXIS mechanics etc. My friend loves the SIXAXIS, doesn't need rumble. It's about preference. From the D-pad, analog sticks, to the HOME button, it feels perfect. The Dualshock won an technical emmy award in 2007 by the way. The XMB won an emmy in 2007 too but who's bragging? :)
Does any one remember the article stating that the DS3 will deliver a vibration to different parts of the controller based on whats happening in a game??? E.G. if you are playing a FPS and you are shot on the right side then only the right side will vibrate. just felt that should be another one of the talking points of the DS3
yea I remember reading that somewhere but I'm not sure how much truth is in it. Even if it is true, it wouldn't work with games already on the market unless they made a patch or something of that nature.
im fairly sure the 360 pad already does this. for example in forza 2 when your skidding round a corner you can feel the right side of the car slipping out.
it was more then Directional Rumble. Instead of the ps2/360s 2 runmble pads, the ds3 has 4. So its more. but it really probbly doesnt matter.
the lack of rumble didn't really bother me, it was the cheap transparent plastic they used. I'm glad the DS3 will use the good stuff, whatever it is.
I thought the translucent plastic was cool! A friend of mine actually has an opaque SIXAXIS - so they are out there.
The weight difference in the left and right rumble controller seems strange to me. I know the weight difference simply holding the device don't be affected much, but when it rumbles - won't the left side out-rumble the right? I hope not. Not sure I get the technical reasoning behind this.
At least it doesn't feel so freaking light anymore with weight added. But the 360 controller stays the best controller around.
The Dualshock 3 can't come soon enough.
As far as the XBOX 360 controller, that feels just like a round rock. Great controller.
The next XBOX controller was especially designed for the XBOTS simplicity
How did you get that leaked image, iAmPS3? Now I'm gonna have to kill some people around the office. - Your friendly neighborhood Bill
No their(xBot Lemmings) getting a one hand controller,
so they can use the other hand for WA*KING!!! ;-D
But the 360 controller sucks. That is the most uncomfortable controller I've ever played with. I don't know how 360 people play with it because it's just too weird. The analog in the wrong spot bothers me most. Plus the fact they ripped off the buttons from Sony and just switched them around. They are called R1, R2, L1, L2 by the way.
LMAO TheMart/InyourMom/Power of Blu Ray is such a desperate loser.
you truly are pathetic MART/POG. Go troll somewhere else, because nobody wants you around here.
PS3 UT3 PATCH IS OUT NOW!!!!!
The Dualshock 3 feels right.
The xBox 360's controller is horrible to hold i think! :-/
Got two 2months ago from Japan. They are really good! ;-P
Perfect i think;)
I will definately get a DS3 when they come to the uk, hopefully this will be sooner rather then later
Its such a Vibrate thang! Vibrate Thing Vibrate thing!
And the DualShock 3 is truly the controller Sony should have launched the system with. I will be trading in the two SixAxis controllers I have when the DS3 officially comes here to the states. I haven't used either of them since mid-November... :-)
there is also one thing they failed to mention the battery life is much greater believe it or not, the capacity on the sixaxis was 30ma on the ds3 is 300ma i beat devil may cry 4 and played uncharted for a great a while before ever charging it again.
I think I am the only person that didn't care for rumble and turned it off when I could. I hated the controller shaking in my hand. To me it was a nuisance. I was actually glad the six-axis didn't rumble. But I'm glad DS3 is coming for everyone that misses the rumble. Game on everyone. P.S. Never had a "disconnect" from my controller while playing my PS3. I didn't know they did that.
they kind of do that if you bang them up too much. Neglect on our parts :(. Poor Six-axis.
i cant wait for the ds3 to hit the usa gotta get 2 of those bad boys on day 1
Had mine for a couple of months now... it's still not the perfect control pad me' thinks.
First and foremost the size, perfect fit for kids but for us average adults no-no.
Second again connected to size, buttons are bunched-up.
Thirdly again size, sticks being too close ( L3/R3 ) not to each other but when you press it you'll notice that you're thumb is at an angle which causes pain to the joints when playing for awhile. Also have an XBox 360 control pad and with them you're thumb lays comfortably ( almost ) flat = no pain.
Fourth, trigger design flaw ( L2/R2 ) - should have been concave in shape rather than presently convex, reason slippage. Have to buy aftermarket add-on to correct this issue.
Still thankful though that Sony has listened and put back "rumble".
Its even better with the new attachable triggers i got thru the european psm3 magazine. I goota take a picture of it later when i get home. I'll desrcibe it quickly. Its kinda hooked L2 and R2 triggers that snap on the controller. No more slipping. I can already see the future when these things come in rubber grip style. If anybody know what im talking about attach a pic of these snap on triggers. They are AMAZING!
with ps3 controllers right now . People complain about everything , you bunch of pansies...xbot controllers dont talk as it is the worst controller ever in the gaming history next to the wii controllers.the 2600 koystick was better than those 2 controllers. I want to tie both of those controllers up and throw it into lake michigan. cheap azz controller.
Both controllers work really well there's just some minor differences. SIX AXIS is still really cool compared to the DS3 the only difference between the 2 is that the DS3 has Rumble SIX AXIS doesn't and the DS3 is a little bit more heavier in weight compared to the SIX AXIS. I'm still gonna get the DS3 controllers though.
are you guys seriously discussing a controller, i mean the ds3 is just the same controller with rumble, i really don't know y that guy took his time to open it up, i think it is pretty sad,.... the controller is coming out when it does by it if u want it and if u don't want it don't by it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
