Wildfire is a wireless rapid fire controller for the PS3. It is 100% compatible with the DualShock3 and Sixaxis and communicates directly with the PS3 over high-speed Bluetooth.

Programmable Turbo Rapid Fire
Wildfires secret weapon is a programmable Turbo Rapid Fire mode that can be enabled on up to 8 buttons at various speeds, giving you a firepower advantage that can make all the difference. Just start the programming mode, choose which buttons you want to use rapid fire on and set the repeat speed. With rapid fire enabled weapons like single shot pistols and rifles in Call of Duty: World at War become lethal fully automatic weapons that can empty a clip on an enemy in a second.

Unlike other 3rd party PS3 controllers, Wildfire doesnt require any performance sapping wireless adapters or converters to sit between it and the PS3. Instead, it communicates directly with the PlayStation 3 over high-speed Bluetooth, just like its SONY equivalents.

All this functionality is packed into a stylish controller that has been redesigned to fit better in the hands than the DualShock3. The precision engineered controller is exceptionally rugged and built to withstand the demands of professional gamer.

Wildfire is the most fully featured controller available for the PS3:

Programmable Turbo Rapid Fire
Redesigned ergonomic shape fits perfectly in the hands
Fully PS3 Bluetooth compatible (no need for a separate dongle)
Built-in true E-Gyro and MEMS sensors
Automatic pairing over USB
Vibration feedback
20ft wireless range
Uses 2x AA batteries

If people are going to vote cold - please have the decency to explain thanks.

I dont think you will find a cheaper Bluetooth/DualShock/Sixaxis controller for the PS3 anywhere.
#2
Sounds good, anybody got any personal experience of using this? Might buy it as a second pad and see what its like.

that is quite possibly the ugliest controller I have ever seen. it looks like half klingon warship, half plastic squid monster, half uncontrollable chinese nightmare.

plus there are quite a lot of bad reviews of the controller - and even the good reviews criticise it quite harshly.

Three halves? = interesting... I think it's meant to be more ergonomic than aesthetic to be honest and at almost half the price of the Sony unit it should represent excellent value for money.

I get the impression that most of the reviews are based on user's making comparisons to the Sony DS3 (which, lets be honest, is a bit unfair as this just wont beat the DS3 ever.)

I posted this deal as an alternative, good value replacement/spare Bluetooth DS controller for those who dont want to fork out the £30 or so, and it should be seen as such.

You can buy the DS3 for £28 at Amazon. Why not just pay the £10 and get a MUCH better controller. If youve got £17 to spend im sure you can afford to spend the extra £11.

You mean a counterfeit dual shock?

I think its very fair. What else are you going to compare it to? Having said that, I've added heat as it communicates directly with the ps3 and the design looks....interesting. If all the reviews raved that it fitted your hands better than the DS3 (which is surely the whole point of a wacky new design) I might even have bought one.

I didn't vote either way because I do not know the performance of this controller, but a counterfeit Dual Shock still is more comfortable to hold than a sharp-edged controller such as this one.

Definitely worth spending that extra tenner. The DS3 is unmatched in terms of quality and accuracy, plus it won't fall apart after a few months if you don't abuse it.

If you really have to go on the cheap, I've got one of these and they do the job well enough for under a tenner: http://www.game.co.uk/Accessories/PlayStation-3/Controllers-and-Accessories/GAMEWare-PS3-Wireless-Controller/~r351857/

They do a wired one for less than a fiver as well. Even then, you're still better off with a Dual Shock.

Didn't Sony include an update in a firmware revision that locked out a number of unofficial controllers? Could be left with an expensive paperweight eventually...

Agree with other posters. Awful reviews and an ugly looking controller. Easily worth £10 more for the official dualshock!
