A new design of PlayStation 3 control pad has hits the market today. Created by PowerA, The Mini Pro Elite Wireless Controller is specifically designed to give PlayStation 3 gamers all the performance they need in a compact, ergonomic design.
Nice. While I have nothing against the playstation itself. I can't stand the controller, because when i use the analog sticks it feels weird and uncomfortable. But I'm just used to the xbox controller. I think it's good that there's more variety in the controllers rather than the standard controller that comes with the console (they should do this with all consoles).
360 controller is the way of the future
Nope it just an alternative way . Like the ps3 pad is .
i lover the resistance of the analog sticks on the xbox controller. i also like the bulky-ness too. ps3 controller feels cheap and the analog sticks are loose.
like the 360 D-Pad?
A controller is more than a d-pad. The d pad is just a clunky analog stick its not very bad at all once your used to it.
I dont really have a problem with the dualshock but i cant deny the 360 is more confortable, aside from the dpad. I hope for the ps4 they at least rearrange the location of the left stick and the d pad
Nah, the left stick position is fine, some of those 3rd party controllers are made for people who are into first person shooter games which ain't my genre at all, for everything else the Dualshock is fine!!!!! Maybe Sony might need to make improvements for the sticks, but not the positioning, not everybody plays FPS!!!!
well i guess everyone has diferent tastes, i just prefer the positioning of the 360 sticks and not because FPS, those are not even a 10th of my total amount of games. They should do like that new madcatz controller where you can swap them however you like
I've never had a problem using the Playstation controller or the xbox's, guess I must be weird... either that or it might be because I'm not a child that hates a system and its game pad because Santa brought me the other one.
When is it coming to the US?.. I want one.
It's been here for months already. http://www.amazon.com/Pro-E... Just a slightly different version.
Yeah, I did checked it months ago but I forgot.. still do want it but I also wanna pay less too cuz Im on unemployed right now.. thankz
Why is this even news? Its always been possible to get a PS3/£60 controller for each console. Google it ffs.
Never buy 3rd party accessories for my PS3. I had a ton of bad experience with the PS2 when it comes to 3rd party accessories. I only buy Sony accessories...that's it. The DS3 is the best controller ever made in my opinion. I feel very comfortable playing with it.
Agreed. No lag or broken d pad. Touch sensitive everything. I wish I could use a DS3 when I need a controller for certain PC games...
I had a Logitech for my PS2, loved that controller, best 3rd party controller I've ever put my hands on, one of my favorite controllers along with Dualshock, Saturn & Dreamcast controller!!!!! Plus I don't like how that controller looks since I ain't into FPSs, and there's really for Sony to make a controller just like that, not needed!!!!!!
True.. I have several of PS2's 3rd partaayy, none of em work right. they work but not perfect.. somehow I still want a perfect one but I think Im dreaming.
No self respecting PS3 owner would buy this, cause if they did that would imply that the XBOX has a better controller. god forbid they did that .....
Why does this post seem like this is the only 3rd party PS3 controller to do this... why so surprised?
the 360 controller is just too big. its ergonomic but way too bulky and gives hand cramps. but i do like this controller because its small and the analog stick is on top. definitely a must but. i had to get the mini for 360. just more comfortable and less strain. the 360 controllers dpad is freakin horrible so this helps.
