Question about Sony Dual Shock 3 Controller for PlayStation 3

Dual Shock 3 Doesn't seem to work at all

I just bought a Dual Shock 3 for my PS3 and it doesn't seem to work at all. I plug it in and the other controller won't work. I try to use it plugged in and not plugged in and it doesn't connect to the PS3. I downloaded the latest upgrade and it still doesn't work.

There's no instructions in the pack and I can't seem to find anyone on these forums with a similar problem, does anyone have any suggestions?

My mad catz dual force ps2 controller wont work


you will need a dual shock 2 ps2 controller. The mad catz controller is probably a dual shock 1 controller. Some games require the dual shock 2. It should say on the back of the game if the dual shock 2 is required. If it says something along the lines of "pressure sensitivity" or "pressure sensitive" on the back of the game case (where it says "1 player" or "2 player") ... then you will need a dual shock 2 controller. If this is not the case and it only says "analog controller" and "vibration" then you won't need the dual shock 2 controller. If the controller doesn't work for any games or even on the console main screen, then it must be the controller that is broken. Try turning the system on without a game in it and see if the controller works. Hope this helped :-)

According to a comment at Amazon "since firmware 3.5 Sony has blocked 3rd party USB accessories so this no longer works with a PS3. This isn't the companies fault, just be aware it no longer works on the PS3" http://www.amazon.com/PS3-SX-3-Wireless-Controller-Playstation-3/dp/B0031BWM6A

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.

This usually happens when the controls have lost most of their power.
Try leaving your controller plugged in (charging)overnight or for like 2 hours. (Controls only charge with the PS3 ON).

Ps3 compatiblity with vibration and rumble feature


Greeting Vikas,
You do need a firmware update to enable the Dual Shock feature on your system. On the XMB (main menu), go to Settings and click on System Update. If you have internet connected you will be able to download the newest firmware there. Here is a link to a site with all of the Dual Shock compatible games For Japan, Europe, and USA.
