The Playstation 3’s controller, the Dualshock 3, isn’t the easiest pad to get working on the PC. So why bother when it’s so much easier to use something newer? Well, in some ways, the PlayStation 3 controller is still special. The Dualshock 3 has something the best PC controllers don’t have: Pressure-sensitive analog face buttons. That makes the Dualshock 3 the best choice for playing emulated PS2 games in the PCSX2 emulator. Metal Gear Solid 3, for example, just doesn’t play right without those analog buttons.

And if you simply prefer the feel of Sony’s older controllers over the redesigned Dualshock 4, this is the perfect controller for playing those classic Final Fantasy games on Steam. Here’s the best way to get your PS3 controller working on PC, using an open source tool called ScpToolkit.
