PS3 - Dual Shock 3 Controller (Black) £27.99 @ Sainsbury's Entertainment

Found 22nd May 2013
I've needed a new PS3 controller for a while and thought this was a good price. £37.99 usually, but code "SETENOFF" brings it down to £27.99.



Price is £39.99 so with £10 off is £29.99 not £27.99

Good price, just had to send my extra controller back to an Amazon trader since they sent me a fake controller, hopefully Sainsbury's is slightly more trustworthy.

Took mine apart recently and cleaned it, almost good as new. Shocking how much filth gets in these things.

Had to borrow a screw driver but hey, money saved!

just a personal question.

My controller keeps on pressing L1 and Direction buttons on its own.
Thought filth was pressing em, so tried opening it to take a look but not easy putting the pieces back together after.
Yet, still the same problem. Any suggestions?

great,thanks.

Well Sainsburys cant sell you anything fake so let's hope so!

Hot. Been looking for one of these for a while, cheapest I've ever seen it. Beware fakes which cost about this price - apparently they look very much like official controllers but have endless problems.

It's not hard to put it back together. the L2 and R2 button is a little complicated with the spring but if you watch the YouTube videos it's easy.

saw these yesterday online for 17 quid and u can get coloured ones

I have also heard that the spring from a 3.5" floppy disk* makes a great replacement for trigger springs.

Bargain! Cheaper than the dirty used ones I saw in CEX yesterday and I finally got to use up my nectar balance.

I have the same problem with 2 controllers. Not sure How it happened to the first one but the left analog on the second controller was chewed on by a child :-\ . Any suggestions on What to do after opening it up as last time I just gave it a clean and that didn't result in anything.

using an old ps1 controller at the moment! hmmm to upgrade...

Anyone know what courier they would use?

it will be royal mail. order conf email says 3-5 days

If you're redeeming nectar points on Sainsburys Entertainment (use your points to buy vouches here), don't make the same mistake I did and buy two vouchers, as you're only able to use one per purchase.

Exactly what I came on here to find, love it when that happens. Thanks, hotted

Super hot deal...heat added.

Thanks, finally do they give tracking number or is it sent standard delivery?

Took PS2 ones apart years ago to put the non electrical parts in a dishwasher. Gives them that 'new' feeling again but the L2 and R2 were a **** to refit back then, I imagine the DS3 ones are even harder then?!

Nothing in the email. I doubt you will with Royal mail.
just says on Sainburys site: "Preparing for despatch"

Does anybody suffer a phantom triangle, when the menu pops up during blu ray/DVD and during games, when I didn't press the button? I did he reset trick to no avail, just wondering if this is just me?

heat, just ordered

thanks OP.

Just ordered thanks for great deal! My boyfriend breaks his control pad like plastic forks!! He drops them too many times


I get it for £23.80 anyone want it let me know work there and we got 15% discount at the moment
