We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. The PlayStation 3 is the eighth best-selling gaming console of all time, so it is no wonder people are still using it more than a decade after its initial release. To ensure you can vanquish all of your virtual foes, edge out the competition in every race, and navigate through tricky mazes, it is important to have a responsive and comfortable controller, which is exactly what you'll find here. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best ps3 controller on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 17, 2019:

Whether you are a traditionalist or just looking for a top of the line option, nothing beats the offical Sony Dualshock 3, which is why it claimed the number one spot on our list. Since many people game on more than one console, we included the ZD-V+, Arsenal Gaming Raven, and EasySMX Wired, which are all compatible with at least three platforms, if not more. For those who feel style is just as important as in-game performance, we included the KPLN Wireless and Molgegk Bundle, which both come in a bunch of cool designs.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
