Featuring full SIXAXIS motion tech, built-in rechargeable battery, dual rumble packs, and USB compatibility, the Power A Pro Elite Wireless Controller for PlayStation 3 is the answer to every Xbox 360 proponent’s complaints and desires in a controller. Long criticized for its 1st party DualShock 3 by those who would prefer a controller more like the Xbox 360’s, the PlayStation 3 will now have a 3rd party solution from Power A that should satisfy that demand. Not only will gamers get custom R2 and L2 pads, player indicator lights around the Home button (also known as PlayStation button), and all of the expected luxuries of a PS3 controller, but also a re-arranged layout that sets the left analog stick in the top left side of the controller with the d-pad dropped down to fill the void, just like on the Xbox 360 controller.

The Power A Pro Ex Controller will offer the same redesigned layout and rumble packs but drops the SIXAXIS and rechargeable battery for a USB-based power source via a 10ft cord to the PS3. Both the Pro Ex and Pro Elite Wireless also come with custom gripped texture surface and ‘glowing’ action buttons.
