DualShock 3 for GT5 Prologue

Sony's new DualShock 3 controller will be arriving on April 15th, just in time for the North American release of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue! The DS3 is the official wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 to feature "rumbling" vibrations without wires, and will go on sale for $54.99. I'm sure that most of us remember how much the original DualShock controller changed the gaming experience in the original Gran Turismo, and it's great to see this essential feature come back as the series moves onto the new console.

but personally I can't stand rumble. I like my 360 controller better but the PS3 is so close because it is so light, with rumble it will only add weight. Personally I turn the rumble off on my 360 controllers. I don't think vibrating my controller add's anything to a video game.

in games like Resistance, where so many things are going on around you, it's hard to know when you're actually getting hit. i think of it like the motion controls, its good in small bursts.

i already have a DS3 and it really does make a difference, at least to me. games like SuperStarDust HD are alot better with just this small addition.

and the new controller feels really good now with the added weight. the SIXAXIS controller is just a little too light. the DS3 is still really light, there's times when even i can't tell which is which. i use the DS3 even with games that aren't patched for it yet.

I already have my (White) DS3 and i love it guess ill get another one when it comes out in the U.S. personally i love rumble so Yay! for the ds3

for those who already have a DS3... are the joysticks any different,
Or are they the same quality as those on the Sixaxis? Do they feel like the DS2?

Blaine3966d ago

I don't have one, so I guess I shouldn't be answering your question, but I believe they're the same. Except for rumble, of course. Everything else remains unchanged, as far as I know.

I'll be so f**** pizt if they don't upgrade the quality of the joysticks. I'm tired of em sticking to the left & right. I've had two controllers do this to me. NO WAY I'm buying a controller 4m Sony if this goes unfixed. Im sure there will be some good controllers made by 3rd parties that will not have this problem.

I already pre-ordered a DS3 on Amazon for only $49.99.

MikeGdaGod3966d ago (Edited 3966d ago )

it feels exactly like the SIXAXIS to me but with a little added weight. i love it and use it even when i'm playing games that aren't patched yet for it.

@1.2...... i don't know about the problems you stated, but i haven't had any joystick issues with either. i can say that the issues with the controllers disconnecting are almost completely fixed. (i say almost only because i've only had the controller since December. but i haven't noticed that issue...........yet.)

ELite_Ghost3965d ago

yea the weight is much different, you'll think that the sixaxis is bullshit because it's so much lighter, the rumble works really well
for ex: Burnout, when you're driving on dirt, the controller starts to rumble...

$60 for a controler? Thats the same price as a game. Think I'll skip.

360 controller-$49.99 + Play & charge kit $19.99 = $69.98

ruibing3965d ago

It's actually available as preorder for only $49.99 on Amazon right now.

GT deserves a racing wheel! It's great that the DS3 is coming out and all, but it's not for GT.
