Question about PS3 controllers and The Last of Us...

5 replies 1562 views Edited Jun 11, 2013

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to use an after market controller to play The Last of Us?  I have a wired after market controller for my PS3 and it's worked great on every other game but it's not six axis or dual shock or what have you.  I saw something that said you have to shake the controller to power the flashlight.  If this controller works on every other part of TLoU, I could spend more time looking for batteries if that's the only way to recharge the batteries.  If it's not pitch black dark, I could even just skip using the flashlight altogether.  I prefer to go it without the flashlight anyway.  It feels more real to me that way.  What do you think?

It could be a nuisance but you could turn up the game brightness all the way when you encounter a dark scenario.

I ran into the same problem when playing the demo. I use an after market 360 controller. The game really does convey darkness realistically. It gets almost pitch black when there's no natural light. I guess we'll have to really keep an eye out for batteries.

Trust me you will use the flashlight. There is just no way around it imo. I use as much as possible. Some areas are pitch black. Trust me on this

Yeah I'm in the same boat, does anyone know what the controller options are like in the game?
