I'm currently trying to play heavy rain and at the very beginning when it prompts me to shake the controller it doesn't register, ive googled ten different versions of my question and i get nothing...


Well, it's simple. what kind of controller do you have, and how old is it? the 2 Sony six axis controllers i bought with my ps3 had buttons that stopped working on them. so it is possible if it is an old controller that the sixaxis just simply "went out" BUT when psn does go back up tomorrow download the little big planet demo or pop the game in if you already have it. it uses the sixaxis to move their heads. GTA4 also has sixaxis parts to it. and you can access that in the phone menu while playing the game. But you might just have to buy another controller if yours isn't working. Hope it helps!

PS3 Controller will only work when plugged into the USB


I picked up the folling troubleshooting tips from the PlayStation Knowledge Center. I know it may seem silly or insulting; This is not my intention. Problems like this are usually just little things you're over-looking. Give thest tips a shot, one by one, and see if your solution is in here. If it isn't, message me back here & we'll try something else to get your controller working, ok? By the way... Is it a sixaxis controller or dualshock?
  • Verify if the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller works with the USB cable.
  • Verify that the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller's battery is charged.
  • Attempt to pair the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to another PLAYSTATION 3 system. This helps determine whether the problem is with the system or the controller.
  • Attempt to connect another SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller to the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Move closer to the PLAYSTATION 3 system. The maximum range for Bluetooth is 30 feet.
  • Make sure you have less than seven Bluetooth peripherals paired with the PLAYSTATION 3.
  • Unplug any other USB device plugged into the system when pairing the SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller.

Sixaxis controler won't vibrate


The SIXAXIS controller will not vibrate by design.

You must have a Dualshock 3 controller.

If your controller says dualshock 3 on it and it does not vibrate, you should see if you have any warranty support or if you can replace it.

Sixaxis on ps2 ???


No, it's not possible to hook up sixaxis to PS2. Sixaxis is a part of DualShock 3 for PS3 which is an optional feature in the PS3 games. Playstation 2 controllers run off of DualShock 2. So sorry, but you're gonna need a PS3 for that.

PS3 Controller Problems


First of all I don't believe the PS3 controller is recommended for use on a computer, lol. And the sixaxis may mess it up in the first place. You need to go get you a COMPUTER CONTROLLER, like a logitech or something. Soi you can play on a right controller. Also make sure your PS3 controller is properly managed on the laptop.

Sixaxis control problem


is the lithium ion battery connected? sometimes when reassembling the controller the red/black wire from the flat LI battery gets damaged. if you forced it shut, it will never work...all the plastic pieces towards the back (by the R1 L1 buttons) have to match up perfectly. it should close smoothly if correctly aligned

Hey sml625,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Sixaxis controller is unfortunately not compatible with the Playstation 2 and is only supported on the Playstation 3 console.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

My sixaxis and bluetooth headset do not get along!! WTF is the prob?


People with the same issue in their PS3 rants, suggesting it is a problem with the Bluetooth
screwing up, which makes complete sense. Will I have to just buy a really long USB cable like he did?
The answer is YES! (For now this is a widely used solution, until a better fix is in place. This has
worked for about 60% of the people that have tried this.)
