    Dualshock 3 as it rumbles.....and slim as they are more reliable.

    slim uses less electricity and has built in power supply (takes less space up) and from what i know are more reliable (less prone to lyod)

    as above dualshock 3 is same as sixaxis but rumbles

    I know this is pedantic but the old plain sixaxis and dualshock 3 controllers are different other than the fact that dualshock rumbles.

    The dualshock 3 has a lot more weight to it and is more solid. It took a while getting used to it for certain games like fight night 4 as I was used to the lighter controller.

    Also this is just theory but I think the dualshock 3 needs charging more often.

    The new ones are both of these which has been out since the intro of ps3 slim i think, imo if you are going to get an old pad get the rumble DS3 as the sixaxses is usless and without the rumble, it would feel cheap and like your on a ps1

    Phat or slim?



    phat ps3 are more common with problems such as ylod, so i would avoid them and go for the slim

    What's a good price for a 160GB phat with 6month warranty - and cheers everyone! If I could rep you all, i would!

    £140/150 because I am sure they were on offer with tesco recently, maybe even cheaper I guess, but I would say that is a good ish price.

    On the controllers I prefer the not dualshock, but that is personal preference, the rumble annoys me!
