Would you like to use your PS3 accessories on your PC?

Would you like to use your PS3 accessories on your PC? Well I have found three different third-party drivers and software that works great on your Windows or Linux PC.

The first one is my favorite this program is called motioninjoy. Wololo mentioned before how he’s used motioninjoy’s driver to control Wagic on his PC with his PS3 controller here.

With motioninjoy you can use Bluetooth or just a plain old USB cable. Plus you can pre program it to your favorite set up and emulate the Xbox360 controller. They have even added the old Xbox controller with pressure sensitive buttons. Which is great if you like to play a lot of those Windows PC games? So when you emulate Xbox 360 controller and start your windows pc game it automatically recognizes as an xbox360 controller.

Sometimes it can be a little confusing with the button schematic but you get used to it real quick. Now they have the PlayStation move controller working but it’s still in demo mode. The new and old PS3 Blu-ray player remote control works on Windows media Center as well and they even got the wireless keypad working when you use the PS3 controller. So if you would like to know more about using those devices on your PC I would recommend visiting this link here http://www.motioninjoy.com/

Now have you ever bought that udraw gametablet either for the Xbox360 or the PS3. Did you get bored with the games. Well this is a nice little program it’s very simple all it does is act like a secondary mouse. So, If you like to use paint or other creative programs it will work fine with them. amehttp://brandonw.net/udraw/

Last but not least the PS3 camera it works really good with Skype and Google hangouts. Now like YouTube and a few other ones it will work for but I have found that it gets a little choppy and some color distortion. It uses Microsoft’s Windows directshow/WinRT framework so it should work, with a lot of web applications. There’s even a SDK so if you would like to tweak itor make it may run a little bit better for yourself or others. http://codelaboratories.com/downloads/

So injoy your PS3 accessories on your PC.

    El unico pedo en esa madre del motion in joy es que a veces se encarnan esos drivers como una maldita ladilla … y es dificil quitarlos… de hecho me paso con mi controles de xbox … desinstale tantas veces los drivers que casi formateo la maquina y al conectarlos solo veia un control de un solo boton… nada mas!.. de hecho a varias personas les pasaba eso (esto me paso con mis baterias y mi guitarra del rockband) y el problema es que en versiones anteriores tenias que estar conectado al internet … lo cual era un contra… pero en fin… si lo probe estuvo chido pero realmente prefiero comprarme un cpntrol generico o uno de xbox para ello, ademas son mas compatibles que los del ps3… otra es que el complemento ideal para esto es un programita llamado “x360ce” muy bueno para emular los botones del xbox en los juegos que necesiten un control autentico

      This is an English website. Not a Spanish website. I can’t think of many things more rude than for you to come here and refuse to even translate what you posted into a language everyone else could read, but instead commanded everyone else to Google it. As if what you had to say was SO important that another person would want to Google it to translate it.

      Your arrogance and rudeness is enormous.

        Well, I agree with you, in parts. It’s so anoying when all the world needs to know english to talk. I can understand spanish and english, and I’m brazillian (not sure if I can write lol). I do understand that this is an english site and we must respect yours language, but, it won’t hurt if we all open g.translator. When I was child, I’ve used to play Super Mario RPG with babelfish open to try to understand the game. That was awesome, because now I can speak in three languages (of course I need to study to fully understand you and Botarguirix). Try it a little! It’s awesome. Sorry about being anoying, but, it’s a free world XD

    I’d be careful with motioninjoy, they use a shady chinese ad service, so I’d hop on their forums and grab an offline patch that removes those ads, and allows the application be used offline!

    the code labs and motioninjoy drivers are unsigned “no digital signature” so if you use win 7 x64 or win 8 x86 or x64 you need to disable driver signing and enable test mode to load them as windows refuses to load them most of the time.

      Nope, when you install an unsigned driver/programm, you always get a security information.
      Then you have the choice to A: abort installing driver and or programm, or B: ignore the warning and install anyway.
      After that choice (whichever you made) windows will proceed or abort, and drivers like for the ds3 from motioninjoy have to be started manually inside their programm (there is menu option just for that), because their programm is not so well coded, but it does what it should do.

    You can use Better DS3 after you’ve got motioninjoy set up, so you can avoid using they’re spammy, pos software.

    I love playing N64 and PSX on my PC with the DS3, but I’m most of the time in ubuntu so not always I can play these emus, unless I find a good DS3 driver for linux

    Well anyway, for the simplicity, the ds3 is imho not the holy grail. It is not bad, but it was never intended to be used on a pc or sony would have written drivers for it and released them a long time ago.
    So using its counterpart (xbox 360) which self installs when you hook it up is an option, and also the calibration and button maping is easier done than on the ds3. Also, I found it very interesting that the use of multiple controllers works just like on the console itself. For instance playing kane and lynch in splitscreen on pc is not a problem, also serious sam fe se or overlord 1&2… to name a few.
    But anyway, its everyones choice afterall.

    I have used motionjoy for a while and it works great. .. it’s a little buggy the last version I used which was a little while ago now but overall did what it needed to. .. gave me bsod when it would finish charging and would turn on and shut off but that is probably fixed by now

    Motionjoy is a pain in the ass. It works fine at first with a Bluetooth PS3 set. However, when I want to use my Xbox 360 wireless controller the problems begin. I tried to uninstall motionjoy and it seem to have remapped my usb ports drivers with motionjoy’s proprietary drivers and my usb devices would either not work or have very limited functionality. The whole system is just very buggy.

    Install MotionJoy drivers, but use BetterDS3 for actual configuration

    MotionJoy alone is fucking ad bloated crapware

    motioninjoy is so hard to remove it’s practically malware. It screws up other drivers and takes a completely manual uninstall to fix. google “how to uninstall motioninjoy”.

    The software is know to blue screen most computers, when disconnecting and reconnecting controllers the driver makes computer blue screen.

    Motioninjoy is a piece of shit, anyone with half a brain should know better than to use it when there’s MUCH better alternatives available (xinput wrapper).

    I’ve used motion in joy and it is awesome. I play on steam using it and my ps3 controller. It’s weird on some games, max payne, but over it is awesome. You can map every single button as you wish and create macros….what can be better than that?
