The new version of the XCM cross battle adapter is out (Wired 360 controller converter for use on PS3). And with it comes new features such as button swapping, SIXAXIS support and rumble functions!
I'm totally buying this one. I love the PS3 controller for fighting games, but I can't go without the 360 controller for FPS. Especially Modern Warfare 2.
I could use it to! I suck at street fighter IV on PS3 but I play good on xbox360. One of my friend have it on PS3 and I want to kick his butt hahah!!
IT ONLY DOES EVERYTHING. It can even use a 360 controller. lol
I noticed when playing GT5P that after a while my finger would get tingly and painful sensations of holding down R1 or R2 after a while. i was switching between the two trying to see if i could get a comfortble position for R2 but god sony really dropped the ball when designing the triggers on the DS3. My local game doesnt sell the Gioteck real triggers either so im S.O.L when it comes to ps3 exclusive racers unless i resort to X as gas.. I think this kind of adaptor would have quite a market. Depending on the price i might order one.
i heard PS3 slim also converts 360 fans to PS3 owners.
I would love my PS3 if it had the 360 controller. I'm still looking for a 3rd party pad that is shaped like a 360 pad with the same config. Sometimes I don't even like playing games on PS3 knowing the quality of the PS3 controller.
There's this one : http://www.joystiq.com/2009... and I think the quality is just fine for the DS3.
Excellent. Fat fingered people of the world rejoice.
This is the best news i have heard all year, i PERSONALLY cant stand the ps3 controller for FPS games, the L and R buttons IN MY OPINION are too close and feel un natural so games like killzone 2 and resistance were somewhat spoilt by this, i cant wait to go back to them now and play them again
It would be cool if Sony redesigned the PS3 controller somewhat. The D-pad is superior to the 360's, but in every other way I think the 360's controller has the edge. If only Sony changed the R2 and L2 buttons to well designed triggers it would be a big plus. I have the trigger attachments which makes it a bit better but they are still well below par. I don't own a 360 but I used to have the original Xbox and playing FPS's felt alot more natural using that controller. Also when playing driving games on the Xbox the triggers actually feel pretty good to use as accelerator and brake as you can really use the amount of pressure you apply to them to control the vehicle. On the other side of things though, I really thought Microsoft would have realised that their directional buttons are sh1t and would have redesigned them for the 360. Their controller is good but that D-pad just feels crap.
Well I guess it's all a matter of opinion.I personally think the PS3 controller is far superior to the 360 controller.
Its good that this will give people the option. As for me, "I prefer" the DS3 to the 360 controller.
but, when I use the dual shock I don't have that problem, and I have relatively large hands and really like the 360 controller. it has something to do with my thumb on the left analog stick that causes the problem is my best guess. it somehow effects a nerve in my wrist and causes pain after a while.
I like the PS3 controller also much better since its made for all around gaming not just for one specific genre
I don't really understand why I would get any disagrees for what the controller does to me?
I don't think i would like to degrade my xbox360 with a ps3 pad which means.........NO THANKS. I feel sick even thinking of a ps3 controller on my xbox360.
Xbox controllers are garbage.
You better remember to tell your mom to pick up some AA batteries for you.
play and charge kit?
batteries FTW! lol Gimme a break!
only the best controller, the dualshock 3 better than the flimsy d-pad and asking your mommy for AA batteries :P bots do it all the time with xbox controller not to mention even with new AA batteries the controller still might disconnect and you have to press that cheap feeling X in the middle cause it just died x_x
I'd love this for my 360. I can't stand the 360 controller.
I don't understand why anyone would want a 360 controller.
Because the 360's controller was ergonomically designed to fit bigger hands, it has real triggers not a slippery convex bumper, and concave analog sticks. The PS3's controller advantage is it's D-pad.
It's not the size that bothers me really. The D pad is crap as you said, but the face buttons are horrible to mash. I suck balls at QTEs on the Xbox because the buttons feel so weird to push in compared to the ps3. I guess it's just what Im used to D:
the 360 controller, while good, only got noticed because the original xbox controller sucked so horribly. ps3 controller is better for shooters hands down anyway with it's superior analog aiming precision. What's with these dummies thinking having buttons shaped like triggers has any effect on FUNCTIONALITY of the controller?
Maybe for you, but a lot of people would disagree with you.
As far as controller they are the same. The 360 controller is not going to make you a better FPS player. Most people that think this are just fooling themselves. The only difference is how comfortable each controller feels in your hand. PS3 has a smaller dead zone and for shooters you can't beat that.
Oh GOD... fanboys will hate this
I might try this.
I prefer the PS3 controller much more. I like symetry of all the buttons. Having the the 2 Analog buttons next to each other makes controlling in a 3D world easier. And the buttons are much easier on my hands after a long time playing. Not that the 360 controller is bad in any way. I just like the PS3 controller more and wish they would make a gadget to use them on my 360.
it is called the "CROSS FIRE CONVERTER" http://www.xcm.cc/xcm_cross...
Hey how is that adapter for PS3 controller--->360?
Both controllers are perfectly fine for all genres. Im not going to waste my money on this tbh...
...that Pile of CR*P xBox 360 Controller next to my SEXY;)PS3!!! ;-D
Dualshock is the best controller out, why downgrade to a crappy Xbox controller. Doesn't make sense.
so it does fit in your hands? and so you can play with normal sticks and L and R buttons.
but they keep improving it....sheesh, they added rumble and all that, I feel duped.
One controller was made so you can hold it in your hands while the other was made to fit in your hands, big difference. No real big surprise that there was 0 honesty amongst Sony loyalists. However, I'd like to thank those extreme fanboys for some quality lolz! ;)
My friend has one and its crap. Theres so many deadzones and it just feels off.
They need to do the opposite and make a device that will allow you to use the PS3 controller on the 360. This is why I will no longer purchase fighting games for my 360. The 360 controller just doesn't measure up to the perfect control and comfort of the pS3 controller when it comes to fighting games, which are my favorite genre.
another step closer to making me buy a ps3. but first i need to buy a new 50" HDTV first and MW2 xbox360. Hope my quarterly and annual bonus is good like before.
I can't tell you how great this is. I cannot stand the DS3. I do not have fat fingers but the 360 controller is just better for me. In fact after extended playing the DS3 causes my left hand to just ache. Poor ergonomics in my opinion. Whereas the 360 controller is comfortable and even after hours of playing I never feel pain from it. I will definitely look into this.
I haven't really played with the new controller but the PS2 controller caused my hands to hurt after a very short period of time. I have not had the same problem with the 360 controller. My hands are pretty big, not fat, but big and maybe that's why I like the 360 controller. The 360 controllers design lets your fingers stretch out a lot more than the tiny PS controllers. A nice hybrid of the two would be the ultimate controller.
I totally agree, I actually have the older version of this adaptor. it does work ok, but I had problems with it randomly disconnecting once in a while. hope they fix this issue. but other then that i recommend it.
i'd do it to keep my friend from b1tching about the 360 control being better
who prefers the PS3 controller has tiny girl hands!! Ok, I'm just kidding. I wish there was a hybrid of the two. I imagine that would be the greatest controller in history.
