"Rumble is ready"
4 stars"

Rumble is coming to NZ in March 2008, I already have mine though. I got mine from Japan. It works with PS1/PS2 and PS3 games.

I dont like the triggers, I would prefer that they had indents on them so they dont slip when gaming, plus the there have been reports of the SixaxiS left analog stick breaking. If you go to the NZ/AU playstation forums you will see a thread of about 40 people that have had there left analog stick break, stick or become loose so badly that they were unable to play games.

It happend to me, hopefully I will get my replacement soon.

"Rumble is needed!!"
3 stars"

The fellow below me clearly isnt a real gamer. Rumble is a huge advantage in alot of games. For example, a fps it really helps you feel getting injured and lets you know that your closer to death.. so to say. And racing games, knowing when the suitable time to shift gears as it rumbles near red line. Also give you a better feeling when turning round a corner as it rumbles when you over steer you can feel the tires grinding against the road.. Basically rumble is VERY important, why do you think $ony has added it back into the controller??

"Flying, Driving, & Dual Shock 3"
4 stars"
  1. The sixaxis motion sensor is well suited to flying and can be calibrated in most games to be more or less sensitive.
  2. Same goes for games like “Motorstorm” which it worked really effectively with.
  3. There is a Dual Shock 3 SIXAXIS controller so if you really want a buzz go and get it (even if I think it's a little immature to rely on a little vibration to influence game experience eg. do you really think you would get a little buzz in your hands if you where shot?, I have always turned off this distracting feature suited for kids playing “crash bandicoot” or “spiro”.
"Good yet bad"
3 stars"

This could be better. But it IS familiar, lightweight and a bit enhanced. If they brought the price down, recalled the SIXAXIS, and made a slightly better model with vibe and better motion sensing, I would be completely satisfied.

"Its Light, Its Familar, It Works"
5 stars"

My Experience with the SIXAXIS hasnt been great, but its one of those things that u'd have to get used to, i haven't used a Wii yet so i cannot compare.

Vibration doesnt bother me in the least, in fact i had a tenancy to turn it off, especially during games like Final Fantasys or Gran Turismos.

All the Sony haters out there are just jealous that their MS console isnt as pretty, that the xblah is badly made/designed.

"The Best"
5 stars"

I don't know what you other guys are complaining about. I personaly love the new controller. Its really quick and responsive. I never really saw the point in the vibration function so I don't miss it. Without it the controller is really light. The Sixaxis function, as with everything, takes a bit of getting used to. I think that because the controller is wireless and really light it is the best controller ever!!!

Description

With the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system’s Cell Broadband Engine™ creating experiences that were never thought possible, a controller was needed that would enable your experience to match its potential. Enter the new SIXAXIS™ wireless controller. Utilizing sensors designed to read when a player angles, tilts, thrusts, or pulls, the SIXAXIS controller allows game play to become a natural extension of the player’s body.

And with the heritage of the PlayStation system’s basic controller design still intact, gamers are now able to play the controls they’ve grown accustomed to while harnessing the added intuitive movements of the multi-axis controller.

Features:
  • Motion Sensing System Thanks to breakthrough technology and a highly sensitive motion sensing system, the controller becomes a natural extension of the user’s body
  • Bluetooth Bluetooth for wireless gameplay (the PLAYSTATION®3 system can support up to seven wireless controllers at one time).
  • Analog Joy Sticks The tilting angle of the analog joy sticks have been slightly broadened to enable more delicate and dynamic manipulation.
  • L2/R2 Buttons The shape of the L2/R2 buttons has been altered, enabling increased travel and precision for more subtle control in games.
  • USB Charging Plug into a USB cable and automatically charge the controller through the system at any time. (Use any of the four USB connectors on the PLAYSTATION®3.)
