You may have seen our article about the upcoming XCM Cross Battle Adapter for the PS3. Well, videos have finally emerged of the adapter actually being used.
Awesome, does it work for PS3 controller to 360? OoOOo man I would actually be able to play MK vs DC on my 360 for once!
WTF? The analogs on DS3's are horrible for fighting games.
^^^ I didn't know that was a proven fact.
The 360 controller has no six-axis. Why attach a last gen controller device like the 360 controller to a next gen gaming device like the PS3? I don't see the appeal for the 360 controller, especially with the large dead spots in the middle of the analogs making shooter games abandon player skill, or how stiff the analog sticks are, or how you need to purchase a charge pack or buy batteries on a weekly basis. I won't even get started on the cruddy directional keys that serve no purpose. The misaligned analog sticks also force you to use each stick at a different angle, which is pretty dumb. I get cramps out of that right analog stick even worse than the Playstation's left analog stick. I don't know where these fantards got the idea that the 360 controller is better, when it is worse in every way.
Like the idea, the turbo button no so much.
thats cool, i guess...it will help people who prefer 360 controllers
Scratch one more thing off the list of reasons for not owning a PS3 yet. Getting closer. Couple more worthy exclusives and a $200 price point and I'm there.
I think it's funny that they show a fighting game...since everyone seems to complain about the 360's D pad. However, the triggers are much better on the 360 for most games...like you know, games that you're using a gun, or racing games. Honestly, I just don't think one is that much better than the other.
i went to my buds house a few days ago and play on his 360 (a.k.a.RRoD) for a while.. was sooooo stupid,i used the 360 controller (DUH) and i just cant STAND that sucker at all man,i mean i can care less about the D-Pad since no one really uses it anyways (unless your a fighter fan) but for me,it was the CRAPPY joysticks that ruined the experience and made it complicated.... i played for a few hours and couldnt stand the joystick sensitivity so i quite... HOWEVER,i do like the overall comfort that your hands just groove into. after i went to my hous,played my ps3 with my DS3 and was like a WHOLE new orgasmic experience feeling lol (retarted i know but oh well)- 360's controller feels to0 stiff and fake for me IMO. anywho on topic ,this thingy looks to be good for some peeps of the different taste.
I have a PS3 and the controller, i still can't get used to it. It freaking hurts my L-thumb. IT's just what you are used to.
Do you go round you mates house to play his broken 360 a lot?
if this works well, PS3 shooters here I come....PERFECT!!! They will probably make one to work with the DS3 on the 360 , I'm sure. For fighters. So Happy now...
sell those little trigger pieces for the ps3 now. BUT---i could see this getting a lot of 360-only owners into bed with the PS3. its like a "bottle" to wean them off the 360 and into the Sony-realm.
I don't understand how people have an issue with either controller... I can switch between both very easily.
It's that simple.....it's been debated a lot about why some rather a PS3 controller for fighters and a 360 for shooters. At least, for those that do, it comes down to the same concerns/problems with both controllers..
I know what you mean. I actually prefer the DS3's L1 and R1 for shooting games. The 360's triggers are way to springy, and the face buttons are way to close to the start button, but they're both equally satisfying controllers.
That's not what I mean though, this isn't preference, it's people getting hand cramps from one of the controllers. I'm yet to experience cramp with a controller for any console. Again, that's just me.
Use whatever controller you want now! I love my Ps3! Keyboard + Mouse, Dual Shock, and now even the 360 controller... Sony how about you had Joysticks for all those flying games next?
playstation girls will finally be able to enjoy the best controller in the planet on their gay a$$ systems.
xbox=rrod enough said have fun with DLC next year
I so hate using the R1 for shooting, it just doesn't feel right. Even the R2 on the DS3 sucks. I need real triggers and the 360 Pad gives you that tactful feedback when depressed. On Ps3 shooters can you switch shooting butting to triggers instead of R1? Here is a picture of my setup Updated..with the Battle Crossfire and SF4(can't wait) playing on the PS3. Will be nice when they make one to play with the DS3 for fighters on the 360.
