So I just bought it for $hitz & giggles dirt cheap, also for my little cousins that come over to play ps3. I couldn’t find any reviews besides customer reviews on Amazon & one on YouTube. If you have a PS3 slim then you have to use a USB-hub, even a $3 hub will work supposedly (EDIT: I didn’t need it for my PS3 slim). If I get really bored then I might be tempted to mod it however, it’s gonna be difficult due to the size. Any thoughts, rants, etc. besides it being insanely tiny, LOL? Has rubber/silicone dome switches instead of springs under each button.
**EDIT: Post purchase after thoughts…**This thing’s VERY tiny! Not even sure 18mm Sanwa buttons will fit. However, surprisingly the buttons feel rather responsive to the point I’m content w/them. It’s the joystick I’m not happy w/due to a huge deadzone (it’s similar a T6 stick)! Not sure what will fit in there since the joystick base plate’s ~1.50" - 1.75" in length/width & depth at about ~1.25". Which joystick(s) will fit?!?
Soldering to the PCB shouldn’t be an issue from the looks of things. For some weird reason, the company’s website says it doesn’t work w/a PS3 slim unless you use a USB hub however I had no issues whatsoever (perhaps their website’s outdated). Overall, even if I can’t fit another joystick in there, I’m happy about the purchase (for my little cousins that come over & also it’ll give me another joystick to use when I’m bored) although I’m hoping I can fit another joystick in there. Customer service’s piss poor due to NEVER receiving an email response to my USB-hub question. I had to figure it out AFTER I received the product. BTW, MSRP’s $25 but you can easily find it for much less on eBay if you look…
- Dimensions: 6.4" x 3.2" x 4.7"

*May require USB-hub if used w/PS3 slim but I didn’t need it on my PS3 slim
