Gioteck GC-2 controller for PS3 – can you teach an old dog a new trick?

Gioteck Gc-2
Any console gamers out there that prefer the PS3? It seems that there are always third party sellers for additions like controllers, but do they really have anything worth buying? Most of the time the answer is no, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be an occasional winner.

It’s looking like Gioteck might give the bigwig a run for their money with the GC-2 Wireless Controller for PS3. It’s basically the same ordeal as the DualShock controller that Sony has out, but with some possible improvements. The thumbsticks can be programmed to one of four different levels of sensitivity, the bumpers are spring-loaded, it has two rumble motors, and features a Li-ion battery that will let you game for 100 or more hours (hopefully no one will want to sit still for that long). It seems as though this has been made for those who are crossovers between the Xbox and PS3 though, as the thumbsticks are set apart as if they were meant for the 360. There is also an auto powersave function that will turn off your controller after five minutes, and this will cost you around $40. While it’s a neat idea, I wouldn’t want to use an Xbox controller for my PS3…it just wouldn’t feel “right”.
