PlayStation 3 Controllers & Attachments
Available in multiple colours, the DualShock 3 wireless controller features pressure sensors and the highly sensitive SIXAXIS motion sensing technology. The rumble component of the controller is more perceptive, allowing players to feel every hit, explosion and crash during gameplay. Connected via Bluetooth, players can use the DualShock 3 without being tethered to their console by wires.
A charging cable with a USB connection can be used even while playing so as not to prevent players from missing anything. It is also possible to purchase charging stations for controllers while they are not in use.
Used in conjunction with PlayStation VR, the PlayStation Move Motion Controllers provide players with a more immersive and advanced style of gameplay. Its motion and light tracking technology picks up the player's smallest movements and also features vibration feedback in a similar manner to the DualShock controllers. The Move controllers also have rechargeable batteries for up to 10 hours of uninterrupted play and can be charged using the mini USB charging cables.
There are multiple steering wheels that can be bought to be used while playing the numerous racing games available on the PlayStation 3, such as Gran Turismo 6 and Need for Speed Rivals. The Logitech G29 wheel realistically simulates force effects, allowing players to feel different terrains.
The Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback boasts a precise wheel and a smoother, more fluid experience while using the wheel. For better immersion, players can also buy adjustable pedal units, gear sticks and seats to simulate being in the driver's seat.
A wireless keyboard attachment for the PS3 makes chatting with friends over the PlayStation Network much easier, instead of scrolling through the on-screen keyboard with the analogue sticks. This also allows users to quickly use the web browser features on the PS3 in a similar fashion to using a computer or laptop.
