The DualShock 3 Controller is the primary controller for the later editions of the PlayStation 3, namely the PlayStation 3 Slim and the PlayStation 3 Super Slim, while still being compatible with the original releases of the platform.

Overview

At first sight the DualShock 3 looks once again like its predecessors except for the buttons. Sony felt that the DualShock was becoming an outdated controller so they decided to add a new PlayStation button for going back to the home menu system, and to turn the L1 and R1 shoulder buttons into triggers. The DualShock 3 is also now a wireless controller. One unusual fact is that the DualShock 3 wasn't released at the same time at the PlayStation 3, but was instead released in May 2008; the PlayStation 3 was originally released with the Sixaxis Controller. The PlayStation 3 Slim and the PlayStation 3 Super Slim shipped with DualShock 3 controllers as standard.
