Questions & Answers

What are the chances of this controller working on a PC?

No, it will not work on a PC

The PC I have is equipped with one that I bought several years ago. There is a problem with the drivers. The manufacturer plans to fix the problem at some point, right?

It should be the company's responsibility to fix the problem that you are having so that you will continue to purchase products from them. Since this has happened, you're in a situation where your controller is not functioning. I hope they can resolve this issue for you.

Is there an extension cord available for this? Also, how long is the cord? Would you mind if I bought an 8 ft extension cord?

Six feet is the length of the cord. The extensions for USB devices are available. Ones that I purchased years ago are still in my possession. The only place I know of to buy them right now is Amazon.com. I guess you can look them up on Google.

What kind of controller is good for shooter games?

As far as I'm concerned, the analog sticks are not as precise as the original PS3 controller. Although not great for competitive shooting, this controller is good for other games

Selected User Reviews For Gioteck VX-2 Wired Controller - Red (PS3/PC)

I like the controller a lot more than It is a fantastic controller* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * pro I really like the smooth joysticks and how all the buttons feel really good - There is a lot of clicky action on the pad*br> R3 and Obviously, L3 responds as well as all other buttons on the controller *br> Moreover, the turbo button is a great addition to games like Destiny that use a scout rifle, such as the mita multi-wielding rifle
5/5

As soon as you turn the turbo tool on, you become extremely dangerous both to people in the Crucible and to the enemies in raids*PS- There's no doubt that the home button works great
The glowing red ring at the bottom of the screen makes it easy to see player 1 through 4
L2 &4 work great as well. The R2 triggers are great because there are no slips in the design
* cons USB cable is about 6 feet*brutally hard to get working on PC The gioteck website has a tutorial on how to set it up on PC but do not provide any download links for the files needed to do so. You will need to google them though. Enter xinput1_3 here. Put both of these dlls in the same location as the game installation link to the help page I am very pleased with gioteck's products.

The button configuration is odd, isn't it? It works and feels great, my only complaint is that the buttons are a little difficult to press
4/5

The way I want to put this isn't clear. Why is that? Trying to play Phantasy Star Online 2 with the controller was problematic since I was required to manually set the buttons when plugged into my computer. This is by no means a deal breaker. I could not register, however, because the 'button icons' on screen didn't match the ones I was pressing. It was a triangle instead of a square. It was a Circle that was Triangle. In a strange twist of fate, X remained Start and Select buttons were located on the right and left of the arrow, respectively. The R3 and L3 buttons on the stick don't work either. Since I now have 2 fewer buttons for my game (which was hard to adjust to), I have actually had to change some of my gameplay. It would be useful if someone could let me know if this is a 'broken' product (term used loosely) so that I can make an attempt to get one that hasn't been broken. I gave this product 4 stars overall because it works well, and it can be a little tricky to get it working at first. The situation is tedious, but little can be done. Although I'm not worried about it breaking if I drop it, I worry about it breaking when I drop the actual PS3 controller, or any other 3rd party controller.

I highly recommend this PlayStation 3 controller
5/5

This controller has been in my possession for a couple months and I have casually used it. I haven't had any problems with it. My analog sticks have been mainly used for online hockey, but the D-pad has proved to be a more versatile alternative I am using a PS3 with one USB port (the PS3 has two). The LED lights up when connected to the corresponding port. You can refer to it as a virtual 1st party controller, but you do not need to charge it up. I was impressed as well, as was my nephew. Despite the positives, there is one downside. It is a pain to connect to PC, as has been stated by another reviewer. There are 3rd party programs you will need to install. Neither I nor Windows were able to find the drivers. Purchasing another one would definitely be a good idea if the need arose.

The result is actually quite good
4/5

I liked how it came better than expected as well, the controller has a good grip for a first person shooter, which I bought it for, but its not as good for first person shooters like Call of Duty Black Ops 2, because it does not lock on as precisely. In addition, the PS3 can no longer be turned on by pressing the middle button, as it could with the original PS3. Nonetheless, it is still a good controller when I need one and it is worthy of the price.

The construction is solid, it works well, and the control is solid
5/5

It can be used to play games on a PC and also on my PS3. The small feeling of most PS3 controllers does not appeal to me, as I am accustomed to the Xbox 360 remote. In contrast to regular PS3 controllers, this one felt more comfortable in the hand. It is common for non-profits It feels cheap in the hand and has poor quality when buying an item made by the original manufacturer. In comparison with the original manufacturer controller, I liked this one better because it felt solid and controlled better. As far as this controller is concerned, I have no complaints.

It had been a while since I ordered another reasonably priced controller
5/5

bought another inexpensive controller before, and while it worked well, it found it difficult to get characters to stop quickly, such as while aiming a gun, since the analogue sticks tend to act as if they are "sticking" or overcompensating In terms of control, this little guy comes closest to the Playstation original controller I have found so far. I can actually play my shoot-em-up games on it. Once again it's game time! It is a pleasure to be of assistance.

When I turn on the game, the screen goes crazy and will not let me do I'd like to play a game or see a movie
3/5

A laptop I've had for nearly 5 months is suddenly acting up like crazy. It won't let anything load and I can't see anything on the screen. Watch a movie or play a game Normal functioning is achieved. Disappointment at the very least. It's too late to get a refund or replacement as this all happened too late in the purchase process. It was disappointing.

I think it's really good for the price
5/5

Worked for me. The product does what it says on the tin. It is possible to play PS2 games on my PS3 fat, but not exactly easy. It was the controller's fault, not mine, that I didn't know what I was doing. I find the grip to be pretty good overall. It has been working for a couple months, but not much use has been made of it.
