PS3 RealTriggers for Sixaxis and DualShock 3 Review

Since these are so cheap I thought I'd try it out, and I'm so glad I did. I don't understand why Sony didn't design it this way in the first place. It easily snaps on and off. But doesn't ever feel like it will come out during gaming. My wife even wondered why Sony didn't design it like this in the first place and she isn't even a gamer!

You can get them from Amazon here for only $4.99

I only give the "Comfort" a 4 star because they do take a little getting used to. They do add some thickness to the buttons, so if you were used to where they were before, there is some adjustment to get through.

For the price, you can't beat them. When they aren't connected to the controller, they don't look like they could even stay on, but they are surprisingly good at it. And it's quick, too. For $5, and the fact that you can open the packaging and connect them in less than 10 seconds, it's a steal, but do they serve their purpose?

Yes. In long stretches of gaming, or constant use of the L2 and R2 buttons (like racing games), my fingers would start slipping off the controller, or I would have to lift my finger to re-position them. With these, that's a thing of the past, and they also make it a lot easier to fine tune your positioning, so if you're playing a game where the use of those buttons is pressure sensitive, you might want to consider using them.

Overall, if you own a PS3, you owe it to yourself to get these triggers. They're on the cheap, and they serve their purpose well. I still think Sony should attempt to update the buttons in a similar fashion, though, but until then, these definitely fit the bill.

What can I say that isn't positive about these things?
I guess the only thing is that they have to exist. The make using the L2 and R2 buttons on the PS3 controller feel a lot more natural.

Gone are the days of your fingers easily sliding off of the buttons.

$5 for a way to remove controller frustration is $5 well spent. They even sell these at wal-mart and best buy now (though under a different name).

Some friends and I tried these triggers out last night. These things are great! They feel very integrated into the controller, as if the controller was built that way. They look great too.

I can't think of anything negative to say about these, except that it's hard to find them in Canada. I had to have a friend from the States mail me some.

I love these things:

* Don't feel bulky
* Easily snap on and off
* Feels secure and won't come off during gameplay
* Matches the other buttons exactly.
