I picked up this controller the other day while looking for a cheap second player solution. What I found was a controller that may be good enough to overtake the sixaxis as my main gamepad. I love the trigger style L2 and R2 buttons way more than the standard ps3 style, and the analog sticks have the correct "resistance" so that they feel just right.

There are a few slight negatives which bring this controller down however:

1.) The controller is wired.
2.) There is no sixaxis support built into the controller.

If you can look past these two oversights, you may just find that the core controller is a rare third party gamepad that provides an experience akin to the real deal.

You don t always get what you pay for. Cheap doesn t always mean bad, and expensive doesn t always mean good.

In this case cheap was the way to go. The Nyko Core controller for $19.99 is one of the best purchases I have made for my PS3 in quite a while. From the moment I turned on my PS3 and started playing Resident Evil 5 I knew I had made a good choice in controller.

(Design) Designed very similar to that of the Sony brand controller. The controller is a little bit bigger than the Sony brand controller which was a huge plus to people like me who have big hands. It s not so big that people with smaller hands will be unable to use it. It is only slightly bigger than the Sony controller. The analog sticks have a great resistance level. The buttons are very responsive. The D-pad may look cheap, but works great. Also the controller doesn t have that glossy look to it like the Sony brand does. Honestly I felt as if I had a better grip on it due to being slightly bigger and not being glossy. It s not a pretty controller, but is a well functioning one.

(Features) It comes equipped with trigger style L2 and R2 buttons similar to the Xbox360 controller. It has vibration feedback which works great. Plus the vibration motors add a little extra weight to the controller that some will like. You don t feel like your going to crush it in your hands. It has a 9 foot cord that some will like and some will hate.

(Negatives)
1. Looks cheap (but functions great)
2. Corded (negative to some, but not to me personally)
3. No Sixaxis functionality.

All in all this is a great controller. I am very pleased that I picked it up despite the fact that it looks cheap. The controller works great and if you can live without wireless capability and sixaxis functionality then pick it up. When you see Sony s controller priced at $54.99 and Nyko s controller priced at $19.99, rest assured that the $19.99 will work just as well.

I love having strong force feedback in my games. Even when I use my xbox 360 controller, I often use the WIRED 360 controller so that I get the full 100% vibration, and not have to deal with weak batteries that might be in my wireless controller.

This PS3 core controller vibrates as much as my 360 controller. It feels like a mini-earthquake in the palm of my hands!

I am currently using it with Ninja Gaiden Sigma part 2 and the controller works perfectly. It does not feel awkward, all of the buttons and the analog sticks feel very comfortable. In the game, when I hold the triangle button to make Ryu charge his attack, the controller vibrates like crazy. It feels like you are actually holding the sword in your very own hands!!!
