    Has anybody bought the controllers from DX that look just like the official ones? If you have do they work well, and do they still work in the latest firmware 3.72?

    If you don't know which ones I'm talking about it's these..
    This and this

    I think Sony got rid of 3rd party controllers a few updates back.

    Well I know usb joypads work. I have a ps2 to pc adapter which isn't even ps3 supported and it miraculously worked. I'm kinda hoping for the same when it comes to these controllers.

    I got a Dualshock 3 from DX a long time ago and still use it as my main controller now.

    I cannot remember the exact sku i got though, i'll see if i can find it in my order history.

    I believe it was unofficial 3rd part controllers were stopped. Madcatz and gamestop controllers should still work. Has those two brands are licensed by Sony.

    Too Bad Sony got rid of Third party support. Power A had some BOSS controllers.

    I'll prolly buy one just to see if it does work if it doesn't.. well it was less than 20 and I'm sure I could use it for something.
