Default Everglow Controller Onsale @ EB Today

This is basically a 3rd party 360 controller for the PS3 so you can ditch the POS that came with your PS3! Huzzah!

I considered one of these a while back but it gets a lot of reviews saying the buttons are too stiff and it has no motion sensor which could be problematic for some games. Maybe they have a new model now? If anyone gets one let us know what you think.

Sorry but I have always liked the controllers on the PS3. Not as fat and bulky as the 360 controllers. Each one to his own I guess.

Most controllers have the left thumbstick where the PS3 controllers pad is, I find the reconfiguration needlessly irritating.

I think you play to much 360. If your a fan boy of the PS3 like me then you would not sally your hands with 360 controllers and the PS3 Shockwave would be GOD.
