    I need to know a good place to buy OFFICIAL ps3 controllers. Well just one really, see I want to play CoD but all of the unofficial PS3 controllers always seem to not work as perfectly as the official ones do and with a multiplayer game that requires so much accuracy you need the most effective controller.

    So I need a place to buy these controllers quite cheap because I'm a student and should be saving my money.

    Thank you :)

    Nope, not so very much accuracy here.... You could have alteast written something like my controller is dying soon or something. Thats lol.. cant describe it.
    From UK hmnnn....I usually buy from vgp.ca. And the reason those 3rd party controllers are failing is because Sony doesnt support 3rd party controllers like the 360.
    It cost you about 29.50 GBP to get it there. Thats rather cheap compared to Norway where it cost 41,86.

    EDIT: ah right took them 5 days from canada to norway. I say 4-5 days for you.

    Anywhere but Argos. The usual price for an official PS3 controller is around £30 but Argos seems to think £48 is more reasonable. Robdogs.

    What are you even saying? The auto-aim is already on, the battery is full health and yet when it comes to controlling the analogue sticks there just isn't as much control which in turn affect accuracy. I can play other games that aren't so demanding with accuracy like MGS4 all the way through but with CoD I can't have a poor controller affect my success. This is my controller by the way and it looks really nice, fits well in your hand but the sticks are a bit small and have less grip. It is great for anything that doesn't require pin point accuracy. :)

    So where ever I look I suppose £30 is going to be the best price really :/

    *Success* Haha. You make it sound as if CoD required that much skills to begin with :rofl2:

    And yes. I tried some other place, but they wont go cheaper than that without being a official one.

    Never ever in my life had any bad experience in CoD. In fact it was so much of a faceroll it took me 1-3 hours to get this quick scoping going and before i knew it i was at the top of all games killing kids with quickscope while hearing they "cry me a river" for raping them.

    Sorry for bringing this topic 10 days later (16+10 = 26 may 2012).

    There are so many sites out there, but I think your controller is fine.
