I have for sale my Dualshock 3 ( Official Sony )

i have owned the dualshock 3 controller since it was released in the uk
it has had alot of use,

The controllers works how it should,

The problem is the R2 button has lost the stiffness and has become loose,
on certain games the slightest press will operate the R2 button control

Only happens on some games that Require touch sensititvity, ( the controller still works with all games )
I am selling as spare or repair

£20 i am willing to haggle on price

P&P will be £2 due to the size and weight of the controller

Pick up is ok if your are in the dundee area
Shipping/Payment:
Paypal gift only ( not set up for bt )

Royal mail 1st class recorded

i did have some interest in buying, as i only have 2 controllers currently, i didnt want to register too much interest til i foudn out why the back fo the contorller is different to the 2 i have (both being matte finish)

I think it happens after you've used the controller a lot. I imported two from Japan, and they where official but compared to the UK ones they're a bit more shiny.

In the op describtion i said the controller has had alot of use, ( was matte finish, since worn to be shiny ) All controllers go shiny after a while through wear and tear, As i said the controller works with all games, Just the R2 button that has lost its stiffness ( now loose when you press ) not loose that its going to fall off ( theres a metal spring pin that gives it the stiffness that is what may need replacing :thumbsup:

( question you asked me previously was " which is an out of curiosity question " )

Just wondering, how bad is the issue with the R2 button?

The only games I really play are Fifa 10 and Uncharted 2. R2 is the sprint button in Fifa and is basically just held down for the full game nearly. Can't remember about the other game though.

I do need another controller because the other broke, not essential, but would quite like one.

I have the same problem with one of mine and with fifa it is fine. Just when you are taking a free-kick or a corner and you have to press r2 to change the taker the list of all the players keeps popping up but if you just push the r2 trigger out a little whilst taking the set-piece it is fine and has no effect on the set-piece.

The issue isn't bad as i said in a post above, It works with all games But on touch sensitive games like GT or Gta4 where you need to put a bit of pressure to go slow it still works but can be over sensitive as i think the metal pin that makes the button stiff has either broke or came off,

as you say for fifa you need to hold the button down it works fine,

just the touch sensitivity of the button that does not work as well as it should.

So i am selling as spares or repair
