The Dualshock 3 controller for the Playstation 3 isn’t the easiest pad to get operating on a computer. So why bother when something newer is so much easier to use? In certain respects, the PlayStation 3 controller remains unique. The Dualshock 3 incorporates pressure-sensitive analog face buttons, which aren’t found on even the finest PC controllers. As a result, the Dualshock 3 is the ideal controller for playing PS2 games on the PCSX2 emulator. Without the analog buttons, Metal Gear Solid 3 simply doesn’t play correctly.
If you prefer the feel of Sony’s previous controllers than the revamped Dualshock 4, this is the controller for you. Using an open source utility called ScpToolkit, here’s the easiest method to get your PS3 controller operating on a PC.
Note: The DualShock 3 is natively supported by Steam, so you can just plug it in and configure it using the Big Picture mode Controller settings menu. Steam, on the other hand, does not support the DualShock 3’s gyro controls or (more significantly!) its analog face buttons, which is exactly what we’re looking for. Follow this procedure to get the PS3 controller operating on your PC, including the buttons.
Here’s a simple and easy-to-follow guide on how to connect a ps3 controller to a PC? In no time, you’ll be up and running!
