I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :) Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Insetos of this shi* update, they could have make the PS3 fully works with Dualshock 4. I just can’t find a original PS3 controller in my country. And since mine PS3 is the super slim, i can use the plugin Xpad that allow the PS4 to work with PS3.
