    Finally bought one for GoW3. Pretty awesome games so far. I'm noticing that the PS3 controller is kinda crappy and feels flimsy as hell.

    Are any of you guys running 3rd party controllers that are anybetter?

    I might have to try the dual shock. The sixaxis is really light, not so much flimsy.

    haha, it just takes some getting used to. Its feeling better now. I'm just used to the 360 controller.

    DS3 is a great controller. Easily the best sony controller every produced for a playstation console, but it should be.

    I agree, it feels much lighter than the 360 controller, and as much as i love the 360 controller, i think both are great.

    With that said, do yourself a favor and get the 4.99 trigger snap on thinggies that make the ps3 an even better controller. IMHO thats the only thing i hate about the ds3, is the R2 and L2 trigs.

    Oh and gow3 was fucking epic. Such a great game, sounded so great on 7.1, and with this big ass new sub i had most of the moments had my whole house shaking.

    And if that game is only using 50% of the ps3's power, holy fucking shit, there is going to be some great games on this system.

    Too bad they couldnt of launched with a few games like this.

    I have the trigger addons but my roommate takes them off when he plays :ugh: I guess he doesn't need them because he has a lot of knife kills in BC2. :o

    I still don't like the stick placement for racing games, but it's okay for other stuff.

    Buying a $300 system for 10 hours of gameplay. :coolugh:

    I own a PS3 and I love all of the God of War games but I rented God of War 3 and was able to beat it nearly twice before I had to return the game on a 5-day rental. I love the game but I'm kind of glad I didn't buy it for $60 when after two weeks it'll start collecting dust.

    he worded it that way, but anyone who buys a system for 1 game is really saying, i got it for this game for this exact moment, and then a day later they are buying all the other great games :cool:

    There is much much more to the ps3 than this one game.

    You need to dive in and look around at what the ps3 has to offer. There is tons of great content, and if you didnt have a 360, youd be playing the shit out of all the cross platform games on the ps3, as well as its psn and exclusives.

    The DS3 controller feels fine. Your hands are just gay.

    Your controller is probably sixaxis. I don't think the PS3s come with DualShock3. The rumble is what accounts for a pretty big portion of the controller's weight :o without it, it just feels like cheap shit

    :rofl: i didnt buy it JUST for this one game. I've just been waiting for the PS3 to build up a library of decent games. GOW3 is just the most recent that gave me to goahead to pull the trigger. I've also been eyeing a bluray player. $300 isnt going to bankrupt me or anything. :rofl:

    My hands are just to strong and manly. I wasnt used to the petite DS3 controller designed for delicate asian hands.

    I've been playing it alot tho the past couple of days and its nolonger an issue for me. its alotta fun so far. Need to the uncharted games next.
