No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped

How do you hook up a ps3 remote control to play games with the ps3 remote.


    1. Turn off your PS3 console and disconnect it from the power supply.

    2. 2

      Insert the USB cable provided with your console into an open contoller port. The controller ports are found on the left side of the front of the PS3.

    3. 3

      Insert the other end of the USB cable into the back of the wireless remote controller that you want to sync with the PS3.

    4. 4

      Reconnect the power supply to the PS3 and turn it on. The wireless remote control should sync automatically with your console. If it does not begin automatically, press the "PS" button at the center of your controller. This will begin the process. Once the sync is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and the controller will communicate with your PS3.

My ps3 is not connecting to any tv and the remotes will not connect to it


PS3 game controllers must be plugged in via a USB cable to sync them to a PS3.

After they have been turned on while plugged into the PS3 they can then be operated wirelessly.

As for not connecting to any TV, I'm not sure what you mean by that.

PS3 controller Problem


I just fixed mine. The controller itself needs to be reset. There is a reset button on the back of the controller, above the top right hand corner of the square with all on the information and barcode. Press it with a sharp tipped object while still connected to the PS3 via USB cable. Then press the PS button and you should be back on wirelessly.
