    So I got a PS3 a few days ago, its pretty sweet, but I have an issue with the dual shock 3 pad.

    I find it really uncomfortable to hold, its really small and I hate the R2 L2 triggers on it. My hands loose grip on it a lot, I find it quite slippery, and I find it tough to use the triggers and R1 L1 buttons at the same time, my fingers regularly slip off the triggers.

    So does anyone know of any decent 3rd party controllers out there? This is what Im looking for:

    - Bigger then a standard PS3 pad, less polished/slippery

    -Better triggers, good dpad, decent analogue sticks

    -Comfortable to hold, use for long periods.

    -Rumble is a must

    -Wireless capability while not essential is a bonus, but a decent length cable is fine too.

    Cost isnt an issue as long as its worth it, thanks! [​IMG]

    Nyko Zero PS3 Controller (with rumble)
    http://uk.gear.ign.com/articles/852/852422p1.html

    or the Thrustmaster ps3 controller (no rumble)
    http://www.psu.com/New-third-party-PS3-con...a0001784-p0.php

    or the Logitech Cordless Precision Controller (no rumble)

    i would go with the nyko if you want rumble or the logitech as logitech have very nice quality controllers, i have one for my ps2.

    edit: if you want extra support on the triggers get the Gioteck 'Real Triggers i have some myself and they are very good.

    Thanks jalaneme I will look into the Nyko Zero PS3 Controller, I wont go with the other two because I need rumble and I dont trust logictech any more. I got a logictech Xbox 360 controller and it was the worst quality pad Ive ever used.

    Ive seen those triggers around and have already ordered them! [​IMG]

    If I cant find any better pads I will probably order the Nyko, it looks quite nice.



    @DarkRey, I said it was slippery not sticky! [​IMG]

    Anyone else have any suggestions?
