Mad Catz MLG Controller (PS3) - £20.63 @ Amazon

Found 17th Feb 2014
Great controller. With solid reviews and lots of different options to customize. I have two and for the money they have been a great buy.

Price may fluctuate slightly from day to day. At Christmas time when the deal went hot on this controller the price also went up (worth baring in mind).

Can it be used on PC also?

They have the XBOX version which I think can be used on the PC

I purchased this a few weeks back at £18 from Amazon, it has gone down to less before

Tempted but not sure if it's worth it. At the minute both of my DS3s have turned into 'frankenstein' controllers - they've got grip caps on the analogue sticks and 'real trigger' type attachments on the back but they're still naff in comparison to a 360 pad.

Shame the PS4 pad doesn't work with more PS3 games.

same here
may buy a cross platform adatper (£15) to use a xbox controller

I bought it and it does work, however a lot of games now default to x-box controller set-up and I can't get things like DS3 to work properly. It's a bit frustrating to be honest, which is a shame as it's a nice controller.

I'm assuming the Motionjoy drivers are compatible with this controller too.

I'd be warned about buying this controller however - for the simple reason that it does not have vibration.

Can you provide me with the link to a decent X platform adapter?

I want to keep the wireless functionality though, as my TV is like 4 metres away from the sofa.

Not comfy sitting and playing from the floor - yes I know 1st world problems, but the 360 controller is by far the best compared to the PS3 one

What do you mean by this?
I've had this since last year and have never found a game to not work with it.
The buttons correspond to the DS3 perfectly.

I would just buy the battle adpater
dx.com/p/x…556

and use an extension cable

I think the ps3 controller is too small personally.

Whenever I use the Motionjoy app the selected game controller to enable the x-box pad emulator feature it doesn't detect this pad. It comes up under game controller panel but doesn't do anything else.

It's simple plug & play on the PC, I use it for flying choppers around on BF4

Great controller and way better than the DS3, that has now been relegated to controlling my phone games. I was a bit disappointed about the lack of vibrate when I read the specs however in game I've not even noticed it. I cant speak for PC compatability as I have both wireless and wired Xbox controllers hooked up to my pc however I can confirm without a shadow of a doubt this is the closest you will get to using a 360 controller on your ps3. Just swap the analogue stick and dpad round and away you go, wired for me isn't an issue as I've got everything set up on my desk with monitor etc but I could see it being a deal breaker for some people. Trigger swap is also great as games like uncharted dont allow for custom mapping.

Works on PC as Dinput (Xbox controllers use Xinput) and you can't use motionjoy with these controllers they have their own drivers. I returned mine cause it doesn't work as well as a 360 controller on PC.

yeah - the price goes back up after interest and sales - for those who missed out on the cheaper price - it may well go back down in a few weeks like it has done before
