PS3 Real Triggers

The PlayStation 3 SIXAXIS triggers can be problematic for some gamers. Luckily, a third party peripheral maker has stepped up to fix that.

KillzoneUnit gets their hands on and examines Gioteck's "Real Triggers" add-on for the PlayStation 3 controller.

the controller is fine the way it is

Hardly, everyone I know vastly prefers the Xbox 360 controllers to the old PS2/3 design.

The controller is an ergonomic nightmare, im not surprised people are having to buy 3rd party add-ons to make the thing usable. There just terrible, maybe sony should hire an indsutrial designer to fix it before they release the New Rumble replacement controllers.

Everyone I know prefers the Sixaxis/dualshock. No-one has had a problem with the pad. They also like the addition of a working D-pad.

What's your point?

k2d3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

All though I'm shamefully biased towards everything Sony, I often prefer the 360 controller because of its concave analogsticks and triggers.

WilliamRLBaker3296d ago

the ps3's controller sux its the same 12 year old design.

and its dpad works? righttt its dpad sux for fighters it hurts your thumb after 2 minutes of combos.

liquidsnake3296d ago

And why the hell do you think they have used the same controller design for 13/14 years? Since the controllers are fine. If they weren't they would have been replaced long ago.

PS3 controller is fine. Don't let anyone change it.

GameOn3296d ago

Wasnt they gona swap the controller for a boomerang? not bashing but they was going to change itso it cant be all that perfect.

I completely prefer the 360 pad to the PS pad. Except for the Dpad, The PS pad is the only pad for fighters.

Dunno bout motion control

I'm a PS3 owner and like their controllers, but I must say that the 360's is very nice to use. It feels more solid maybe, but I think if you say the 360 controllers suck, you're lying. And I'm a big time PS3 fan. I did recently get a nice white dualshock 3, and I must say it feels much more solid and seems pretty equal to the 360's, but the triggers do get a little annoying in motorstorm.

NegativeCreepWA3296d ago

Until sony moves the analog sticks further apart, it'll always suck for FPSs. They added them to the ps1 controller as an after thought.
It needs to be redesigned with the analog sticks in mind. When I buy a ps3 soon, I'll be getting the ps controller that looks like 360 controller for when I play shooters.
Even the duke was better for shooters.

dantesparda3296d ago

Eeuw! those triggers are ugly. But how typical, the usual hardcore 360 fanboys (like wageslave & WilliamRLBaker) are gonna say that the PS3 controller sucks and of course the Sony fanboys will defend it. But the truth is both controllers are fine. Preference is the name of the game here, but unfortunately, fanboys can never see that, cuz they are too blinded by there own hatred.

Plese tell me this is a horrible horrible joke.

DJ3297d ago

I liked it the way it was.

Clinton5143297d ago

It's just an add-on that can be easily removed. :)

kai_h3297d ago (Edited 3297d ago )

I can see why sony decided the controller to have trigger buttons curving in... those add-ons are just plain nasty.
