LavaGlow PS3 Controller - Cheaper than the Real Thing

Here is a cool little piece of budget gaming tech. These LavaGlow controllers actually retail for less than regular PS3 controllers. What makes them even better is the fact that they glow. If you like playing games at night with the lights out, you won't have to go hunting for your controls. Nobody has any idea how well these things handle, but if cheap PS2 controllers are anything to go by, you will probably be sacrificing a little bit of smoothness. That is OK in most games and perfectly acceptable for the controller that your buddy or your little brother gets to use.

They take 3 AAAs, come in red or blue, and cost $34.99 (PS3, Tech)

Nice idea. But it would be better if they rumbled.

I'm sure that there will be a rumble version once they get a Sony-branded controller to reverse engineer.

They take batteries. Thats the best thing about the PS3 controllers is that you never have to buy new batteries.

Will the battery charge be correct when checking it on PS?

this is crap man
Just look at it. I never buy third party controllers, this should cost like 2 dollars.

yeah.. it even says in the description, "no one knows how it'll handle" which isn't a good sign.

and it better be cheaper than the real thing. sixaxis retail at 50 bucks a pop..

It is cheaper than the real thing. It says that right in the title. How you missed that is beyond me. If you actually read it, it says it costs $34.99.
Bonsai1214  +   2907d ago
i knew it was cheaper. i was affirming the statement by saying it better have been, because if it were more expensive, no one would buy it.

does it have
sixaxis i'm wondering about it because i bought a logitech i had to take it back because i wanted my friend to play warhawk but it didnt have sixaxis control so i had to take it back

its annoying when they say it is a ps3 controller but it has no sixaxis
