Real Triggers Review (PS3 Hardware)

That Gaming Site writes: Ever wish your PS3 controller was a little more like your 360 controller? Namely I'm talking about the flat, broken-feel of the L2/R2 buttons. Well thanks to a small invention by a company called PDP, you can make big changes and give your Dual Shock 3 triggers. We introduce, "Real Triggers" and they'll only cost you five bucks.

I had no problems with either the 360 or the ps3 triggers. I guess people just nitpick too much about every thing.

Dimitri3808d ago

I can only recommend this to any hardcore FPS gamer that like fast paced action ;).

The trigger buttons they are selling have too much curve. Somewhere in between what the DS3 currently has and these triggers is the sweet spot. They look like they stick up way too high.

Good idea, but it looks poorly implemented.

goflyakite3808d ago

But with the PS3 FPS's the standard shooting button is R1 not R2. Unlike the 360 where the back trigger is.

I usually never have my finger even on the back triggers on my DS3, let alone have them on long enough to have them slip off.

They work well 4 me with certain games, like Warhawk. They do pinch you sometimes if your not careful though.

I have had these for ages, PSW magazine in the UK gave them away with one edition over a year ago. I think they are brilliant and I don't see why Sony didn't just make them like that in the first place. They are so much better for driving games, and any game for that matter.

I had these free in a Playstation magazine too, ages ago. I even went out and bought more for my other controllers.
They also fly off satisfyingly when you get pissed off without damaging the triggers or controllers. :)

These are great and make a huge improvement on the crappy shape of the triggers on the DS3. My fingers keep slipping off and accidentally trigger the trigger. These RealTriggers are a godsend even though they slow your reaction time slightly.

Only complaint is price, although fairly low priced relative to a game, but expensive for a piece of plastic. I heard of people having these pop off, but I haven't experienced that myself.

This explains exactly how I feel about the DS3 triggers:

"I no longer felt like my index finger was holding on to the edge of a steep cliff; they now held firmly into place and I never had to give my fingers a second thought. "

Raz3808d ago

Yeah, my left trigger is kinda loose now - causes problems sometimes. Sony could've done a better job with the ergonomics.

talltony3808d ago

never slip off as it is. I have never had that problem. I prefer L1 and R1 to aim and shoot anyways. I have heard these triggers break off when playing sometimes from older reveiws.

bought these a long time ago they work great but after a while they wear off and they start to just pop off after a lot of heavy use.

ELite_Ghost3808d ago

i think the reg ps3 triggers are way better for driving games.

doomster713808d ago (Edited 3808d ago )

I had the same problem as you and I kept loosing the bloody thing's. My solution? Super glue. Now they never come off. :) They do make the controller much better though. So much easier with driving games etc.

Spike473808d ago

in a game, I rather die and get owned than mess up the buttons on my controller.
Especially since I'm on a very tight budget. :(

peeps3807d ago

they just clip on/clip off. If you decided you no longer wanted to use them you could take them off and you'd never know u had them on...

ghostface3808d ago

I like my controller the way it is, but I don't mind enhancements to my hardware, so I might pick the triggers up.

White-Sharingan3808d ago

I recommend them. Friend bought me these triggers and they work great! and they are pretty cheap too

Cajun Chicken3808d ago

I got these free with a magazine once...I HATE these things!

andron3808d ago

They just get in the way. At lest these give you an option if you don't like the standard design...
