Use your Playstation 3 controller with your Windows PC

It seems that a Japanese coder has released USB Windows drivers for the Playstation 3’s Dualshock3 controllers.

This is a great controller alternative for PC gamers looking for the familiarity of a console system. Links to the drivers and install instructions can be found within the

Being the OS is open source and has the ability to run on pretty much anything that can already run linux, I’m sure we will start to see a ton of dual booting devices in the near future. I’ve compiled a small list of current devices that have been able to boot the Android software successfully.

I know I’ll be crossing my fingers for an Android / iPhone dual boot package.
