If you've read our review then you already know that we're none too impressed. While PlayStation 3 owners do have another option, in the form of Nyko's third-party Zero Wireless controller, there's not much solace to be had. The slightly cheaper gamepad somehow pales in comparison to the oft-panned basic design of Sony's gamepads.
The Zero Wireless is a boomerang-shaped gamepad with pointless metal plating on its face and backlit buttons for added effect. The controller is comfortable enough to hold, with the analog triggers in particular having a far more natural feel than they do on the DUALSHOCK 3 and the SIXAXIS before it. The rumble is good and solid too, not surprising for such a beefy controller."
