Already use motionjoy, its a great utility.

I was playing dirt 2 on my PC. Eyefinity (3 screens) along with the DS3 controller. When some of my brothers friends walked in.

They are like "where is the PS3, and how is the game running on 3 screens?"

Getowned2710d ago

mine were good because im use to the controlers and i felt like i had more manoeuvre capabilities,but i manly use it with emulators i had it going on a pokemon game once,but most pc games i play are RTS games so i don't use it often.

Its pretty good, but you wouldnt wanna use a control pad on a PC for FPS u will get slaughtered.

stevenhiggster2710d ago

@substance, you are spot on but controllers are fine for single player fps' on PC. Just don't try and use it online, you will get pwned. No matter how good you think you are at fps with a controller, you will get your ass handed to you by people with m&k.

Thanks fellas ... the thing is I used to be Pc Gamer ... but then moved to console for good ... the rhing is I tried BF2 ... damn mouse movement was making me puke ... seriously it was nauseatin ... dont know why ... I think my mouse DPI are way tooo high, even slight touch/heck pulse in my hand makes aim move ... lollll. Thats why I was thinkin of usin DS3.

Get a decent gaming mouse and you can adjust the sensitivity on the fly. I have a logitech laser G9 which has loads of different settings available. You really should get a proper gaming mouse anyway, you need a good 5 button mouse for gaming.

Good luck getting it to work on 64-bit Windows 7.

I've had ZERO luck.

ARMY_HAWK2710d ago

I had no problem, took 5mins and it was ready to use.

Substance1012710d ago

Dont see what the problem is, was a piece of cake getting it to work.

newn4gguy2710d ago

Not on 64-bit. 32-bit is a piece of cake. 64-bit requires creating new code.
