Haven't we been able to do this for a while, all you need is a bluetooth usb and drivers which i believe have been out there for a while...I know you've been able to hook it up through a USB cable since i've done it alot.

Yes it has been available for a while but you needed to do a lot of things to make the pc recognize the DS3, now thanks to a MICROSOFT CERTIFIED DRIVER you now only need to install the program and the DS3 will be recognized by your PC no matter what system you have X86 or X64

It's MotionInJoy not MotionJoy, just saying.

CimmerianDrake2970d ago

The only successful way of doing it with Windows 7 was to use drivers that put the OS into Test mode. Very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. Thank god for this new driver now. I have Windows 7 x64, and so I wasn't able to use my DS3 without the Test mode way.

TeenGoten2970d ago

actually no, with the new signed driver you don't need to put windows 7 in test mode. That's the whole purpose of the signed driver.

this is awesome... I still have that old motionjoy pos drive on my computer. Like you said it never worked on windows 7 for me. It was a big pain in the tookus. Hopefully this works for me now. I want to play emulated SNES with my ds3.

i been using DS3 on my pc for a very long time. I been using MotionJoy. however if a certified driver does come out it willl be awesome.

ajcastillo2970d ago

This is the MotionJoy certified driver by Microsoft.

imvix2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

Call_me_Ishmael2970d ago

my pc crashed and wouldnt boot

With MotionJoy? Never known anyone to have any real problems with that. Like most things, read reviews, and make sure you get the right version, cant go that wrong.

n4f2970d ago

never had that problem. at first it wouldn't work but after a while it work likr a charm but you had to do a lot of thing.
its a nice feature cause there is some game that the 360 controller is better but other game the ds3 was needed a lot. now everybody is happy

Last time I did this, it f*cked my DS3 up and now my DS3 will only work with a wired connection :(

I've tried swapping out the battery for a different one, waiting months for the battery to drain itself thinking that there may be some kind of electrical current blockage or some sh*t (somebody on this site suggested that one to me), using the sync button and all kinds of other crap.

Pissed me off so bad, because it was fairly new as well. It works whenever I plug it in, but whenever I unplug it, it's like the bluetooth doesn't even try to find another bluetooth signal, like the bluetooth device in it is f*cked up. I've searched online how to fix it, but all the solutions I've read about don't work, so now I'm stuck with a wired only DS3.

beast242tru2970d ago

yes its much better that its certified i dn't like do download those other stuff to my pc like Ishmel said it can cause problems

If this driver wasn't so overly complicated it would be cool.

I tried it one time but couldn't get it to work, so I just bought a 360 controller for Windows.
