Re: Wireless Xbox 360 controller on PS3

Jan 14, 2013

Are you sure this would work because I am willing to try it. I am mainly ask this because the wired xbox 360 controller works great with the XCM cross battle adapter but i am not sure about the wireless even if its the PC adapter you have to use.

You would need the xcm adaptor mentioned in previous posts. 

 

I can confirm that it works great with the Wired Xbox360 Remotes. No problems thus far.

Because the duel shock sucks bad, I have been going through many power A controllers because they feel like a 360 controller. I just wish they would last more than 6 months

If the DualShock 3 "sucks bad", then what does that make the Power A?

The Playstation controller that hasn't changed since 1995, doesn't require you to buy batteries, and has Bluetooth (works with PC if you have a Bluetooth receiver) is bad? Where is that coming from? I love not having to learn a new controller for 18 years. I've gotten so used to the Playstation controller that anything else just feels wrong.

Wait..... you think the PS controllers suck.... and yet you've been "going through many Power A controllers".

 

Nice way to contradict your own opinion.

I still have my DS3 that I bought from Japan when it first released.... And it still works as if it was new, except the sticks are nicely broken-in.

I still have yet to use any of the 4 or 5 brand new controllers I have. (bought them bundled with a few games for great deals).

So what does that say about you? My guess, if that you're abusive to your controllers.

 

The PS controllers have won awards.... can't say that about Xbox or X360 controllers.

The dual shock 3 won an Emmy for Technology and Engineering. Neither Nintendo nor Microsoft can say that.

For me:

 

Racing, FPS = 360 controller

 

Fighting = Dualshock

Lol. I'd gladly take one of those controllers. I don't have quite the same luck. I've played a lot of CoD and I wouldn't even want to try and estimate how many times I've pressed the L3 button. I've gone through two controllers because of it. On one it's hard to make the button register and on the other the internal parts of the stick are so messed up it wont move correctly. It'll get stuck at odd angles, or will just stop half-way when I'm trying to go all the way left.

But I still prefer the dualshock to the 360. I have big hands and have no problem with it. The first few times I used a 360 controller it actually hurt my hands, so I most certainly dont find that comfortable. But to each his own. This guy probably didn't grow up with Sony controllers like I did.

I tell you one thing, if ALL the developers having been raving over how great and more accurate the new PS4 controller is, I do believe it will be winning over alot of users. PlayStation and Xbox. I have friend who like the 360 controllers cause they are bigger then the PS3 controllers. But I prefer the DS3 as that's what I have been used to playing with for the past....IDK 12 years. I guess that's what happens when you play another console for a while you think of the negative of the other system.
