Being an Xbox 360 user for many years, I recieved a PS3 as a gift this past Christmas. While both are great systems... the controller for the PS3 is where it faulters compared to the Xbox 360 controller. Mind you, I said FAULTER and not FAIL. As the PS3's controller works for what it's for, but the layout, set-up, and comfort is far superior with the 360's controller. I went on a hunt for a "Xbox 360 Style" controller for the PS3. At this time, (and prob for good), the selection is very limited. Pretty much- you have a choice between this, or the Nyko "Raven" controller. I went with this controller to start-off. I must admit, even though it's wired, it's a great-value @ around $20.00. It also feels very well built, comfortable, and the button layout is top-notch. But in performance (the MOST important part), is where this controller fails! The "dead spots" (very slow, or difficult/hard to respond), in the sticks is HORRIBLE. I tried this controller with "Resistance" on the PS3, and this problem became apparent right-away. I returned it the next day. Please, do yourself(s) a favor and save your $. Find a better alternative (if you can)... or stick with Sony's stock DualShock 3 controller. You'll be much better off, trust me. Sad, but true. This controller was ALMOST there. But just plain fails with basic performance.
