Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Controller does not work with game after upgrade

I bought Wall-E for my PS3. It told me I had to ugrade the software on my system so I did. My controller does not work with this game at all, however works with the system menus. I pressed the PS3 button on the controller and the light lit up, so it definately recognizes the controller. Oddly, it will work with the guitar from Guitar Hero III, but I do not want to have to use that to control the game. I have not tried it with other games recently, though it always worked in the past (being that I have only had the PS3 less than 3 months.) Can anyone help?

    I fixed it by switching the controller to assignemt 1, where I originally had the guitar for Guitar Hero III.

    I fixed it by switching the controller assignments (made the controller I was using 1 and the guitar 2 instead)

    I fixed the problem, it was with the assignments of the controllers.

Can't pair it with controller. I bought a white ps3 controller from hong kong. it will turn the system on but thats it, no buttons work. At first I thought it was because the controller was from overseas,...

if the ps3 reads ps2 games then it's a 60 gig,and has 4 usb ports rather than 2...if the controller works on a buddies machine and the machine freezes,it probly needs a service.

PS3 Guitar Hero

Keep in mind that backwards compatibility is not 100% and no that controller will not work with the PS3...

Sure the other games work just fine but you are using a ps3 controller to play them correct??

Yes it is different. The same goes for trying to get a ps2 controller to work on a ps3, it's not gonna happen.

You need to get GH3 with the ps3 controller in order to rock out on the ps3....

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.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you!
