Although Xbox 360 owners still continue to enjoy much lower rates for their wireless game pads (360 Wireless Elites are currently going for £17.73 from the Hut) this is still a great bargain from Amazon. For just £26.94, you can get hold of one of these PS3 Dual Shock 3 controllers which is the cheapest price currently available.
This controller claims to have a very sophisticated vibration system. Although I’m an example of someone who finds vibration systems a bit annoying – especially during those massive Metal Gear Solid 2 cut scenes where it would start unexpectedly rumbling – this is one which, by all accounts, nicely compliments your gaming experience. One extremely content customer stated that while playing a demo of Race Driver: Grid using their Dual Shock ‘it finally felt like I was sitting in that car.’ Although that may be a bit over the top, it is fair to say that the Dual Shock 3 translates every bump, scrape and slide with enough consistency to take your gaming experience to new heights of realism.
There are a few extra features regarding the Dual Shock 3 besides the obvious increase in vibration support. The texture of the plastic means it has very good grip and the R2 and L2 buttons have been made slightly more difficult to push in, but, although to the liking of some players, this left a few feeling disappointed they were not more trigger like. The analogue sticks on the other hand are much more sensitive and easy to press. It’s fair to say that to get a better all- round experience from your PS3, one of these Dualshock 3s is a wise investment - and would certainly make a great Christmas gift.
