PS3 Controller Skins

Well my buddy in NC bought a few of these skins off ebay. I bought a pair of red ones from him. I must say they are freking great!!! lol...I play DiRT 2 for 3-5 hours each night and they have really improved the feel of the controller and reduced hand fatigue. I also got 2 sets of Real Triggers...they are a great add on too, especially for racing games.

Here are some pics...they even make the controllers look better, haha

DS3s are a little slick after a few months. Do they come in black?

I do NOT play without them. i even was waiting to buy a blue DS3 until i found a blue silicon skin for it and sure enough i found one in Bangor, ME, i drove 3 hours LoL (though we were going to bangor anyway). in my local city NO ONE!! in the entire city stocks these silicon skins any longer, except the ones for the Wii, yea not even the 360 skins are here, every single store you can think of. i have 3 DS3's (white imported long ago, black and the most recent a blue one) all 3 have silicon skins on them, the official "sony" sillicon skins. these a bit different then those.

Yeah, he got black, blue and red...the only bad thing about these is the god awful stench..but the more I handle the controller them less the stench exists...

I think the package he got...was 2 black, 1 red and 1 blue for $8 shipped....

PS, sorry for the crappy cell phone pics above...Wife has the digital cam in our minivan

i think it depends what maker(brand) you buy them from, the ones i got (sony) dont have a bad smell, infact out of the box they smell like brand new sneakers.. yummy, after a good while it goes away, then after a very long while they stretch slightly pass the size of the controller. my white controller which has a Clear silicon skin no longer fits tight on the controller, its not loose but not tight like my black or especially not like my most recent blue one.

Looks nice but I'm happy using my 360 controller on my PS3. I do prefer the DS3 for some games but FPS games the 360 pad is so much better.

pardon the dumb question, but I have only had a PS3 for a little over a month. But how do you used the 360 controller with the PS3?

Right now I use this adapter.

However I see they have an updated model that I think I'm going to order now :banana:

sweet, never knew you could do that. Just like the bluetooth headset deal...I thought you had to spend the $55 for the Sony one for the PS3, however I was directed by friends that just about any one will work fine. So I bought that cheap Emerson and like I said, it works flawlessly.

Doesn't it have to be a wired controller?

Yes it has to be wired. Luckily I had a wired one that I bought for my pc to use.

ewww, being wired is a deal breaker for me...when I had my 360 I only had wired controllers...now that I have wireless on the ps3, never again will I go back to wired...

Now this I would go for when it comes out...supposed to be available on 2/5...it is 100% DS3 and sixaxis compatible and is Bluetooth...they are $39 on Gamestop.com

backwards in this thread lol. I wish I could use my ps3 controllers on my xbox. Whenever a game comes out for both I get the ps3 version cause I hate the xbox controller.

Hi everyone..

those skins look cool, but rubber tends to attract dirt more often.

There are some other cool decals available on decalgirl.com. They're removable so they're not permanent stickers and they have a wide variety of decals not only for your controller but also the console as well.

I am still playing with that set of grips...still have a pretty good feel too, but as your hands heat up they do tend to get a little loose, but it isnt unbearable.

I don't know why everybody raves about the 360 controller. I freaking LOVE my DualShock 3's.

Plus, on the 360 controllers, the L2/R2 buttons are triggers, which I keep accidentally pressing while trying to play games with my 360-owning friends. :o

Maybe this has something to do with the fact that I've never owned an XBOX and have owned every Playstation since the first one came out, and have been using DualShock-type controllers forever... :p
