Does what the title suggests, MODs please delete this thread if this is a duplicate..
I was going to try a mod of an Xbox 360 controller to fit the PS3 innards till I came over this, obviously you will need a Cabled Xbox 360 controller, I picked 1 up for 30 USD delivered, and this item can be picked up for 60 USD delivered, all up about the same $ as a PS3 rumble pack controller..

I don't play the PS3 at all purely because of its woeful controller, I get cramps..
Xbox 360 I can game all day nps..

Also this site offers many other options, good site, if abit pricey, but much better option than having to solder wires and crap..

Is it the button layout , or the small size of the ps3 controller that is the problem.

Because if it is the size, could you not buy a 360 silicon skin and fit it to the ps3 controller to give it that extra size.

Size, and the fact that the left analog is to close.
I think the Xbox 360 controller is a work of art, in saying this, I use 1 for pc gaming..
I bought an extra PS3 NYKO hoping it would be an Xbox 360 equivalent, close, but no medal..

I have the PS3 and a 360 and the 360 controller is a lot more comfortable i suppose it designed for larger hands.

I don't have any problems with the button or sticks layout on the PS3 though, it`s just the physical size and aquard angles.

Yeah hence the x over for me, also the added advantage is the left analog thumb control on the Xbox 360, it is good..
I have read elsewhere how much more responsive the Xbox controller is for FPS, also for driving games the Xbox feels more natural...
I think the overall ergonomics of the Xbox wins..
I won't mention the original Xbox controller, that was woeful and the Asians complained so much they re- released the controller for smaller hands..
What was Billy boy thinking?? that we were all ogres with massive hands??

I should be getting one soon, will report back, from the other forums I have read, it works great, and it supports rumble through the cabled xbox 360 controller which is a bonus and also supports Rapid fire...
Each button can be assigned on/off independently..

Looks better than modding an Xbox/PS3 controller..

Was interested when I heard about this... but how would it work on those games that require the six-axis motion control? That's the only thing putting me off buying one.

6 axis wont work, you need an Xbox 360 6 axis controller, which none exist..
