    Hey, I did spend some time by finding stuff to get my PS3 controllers work on my PC. -.- none of them worked at all! Could you help me with finding the right drivers and the right solutions to get my controllers work?

    My specs you need:

    - Dell Inspiron 17R
    - Windows 7 64 bit.

    ^_^ thanks!

    Those are the drivers I use, they work perfectly, even bluetooth works!

    You buy a wired 360 controller and use that, instead of wasting time using a piece of shit controller as a piece of shit gamepad.

    Otherwise, prowler beat me to the links.

    Well if I have money for it left then I would buy it, I don't have to much money now, I am saving it for Super mario Land and Mario Kart, the controller will come later. :P

    Prowlie it works like a charm thank you very much!

    Lmao.

    PS3 controller > 360 controller.
    Good luck with the 360 D-Pad.

    Which controller is better is just a matter of personal preference, what you are used to use and the build of your hands. I personally really like the ps3 controller much more than the 360 one but I still like my Logitech controller even more.
    one other thing if games failed to work set the controller to emulate the xbox controller and use x360ce in the games folder, this way almost all games will work.
