No, it's an XIM3, a keyboard adapter for consoles. It lets you play with your mouse and keyboard setup against poor controller users lol.

Here we go! Are there versions of these controllers, or something close, to buy?

I've only seen those controllers sold by individual people who put them together in their free time. They usually cost well over 100$ too... which is about the only reason I don't own one.

a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.

For $45, I found this. I don't know how good it is, but it is closest to an Xbox-styled PS3 controller that I could find. That company doesn't seem to make 360 controllers that feel like PS3 controllers, so I will continue to search.

That's the thing, if people are making custom ones, a company must have made some similar like the one Nimbus posted. I also ran into one called an XEOX controller, which is very close. Now, how to find one in the UK... My cousin says he'll never play PS3 when he visits because he hates the controller, so I want to give him no excuse.

That's why I said "controller" not "keyboard and mouse".

For $30 I might actually try it. I hate the Ps3 controller for shooters, particularly the fact that the analog sticks are rounded and not concave.. and lets not forget the awful triggers.

I really want to try this now.

I've used that controller before. It was alright I suppose. Can't expect much when it comes from wal-mart.

How are the triggers awful? They're flat which allow you to quickly fire semi-autos.

They're slightly rounded and have no curve at the end to slow or stop your fingers, making it fairly easy to slip. The Xbox 360 triggers have varying stages of depression, so your can keep your grip and not release the trigger all the way to fire again. For DS3, I can only assume Sony intended the triggers to be held under the second segment of your index fingers, held in place by its two joints. But that's extremely uncomfortable, especially when trying to deal with both analog sticks.

I'm messing around with one as I type this. For my hand size, while doing the above, I basically have to shift my hands way down -- my pinkies aren't resting on the controller at all, and are instead pressing into my palm -- before it's manageable. And my thumbs are still prone to collision here unless I bend the joint and come at the analogs from a ~45 degree angle. The only way I'm rapid firing is to completely change the position of my right hand; three fingers wrapped around that handle, lower part of the thumb securing the controller (upper part just kinda hanging out in space), and my index pumping with the tip or second segment. Second segment is actually a bit more comfortable, though it's also a bit slower for me.

Not that I play FPSes on PS3. That's just how I'd wind up doing it without purchasing a workaround.

Are you referring to the bumpers (L2/R2)? The triggers on the PS3 are in reversed position to those of the 360 and are flat. I can hammer and use those all day an never slip. The 360 triggers are slow to use and annoy the hell out of me. You have to actually pull them as opposed to tap.

I hate how the PS3's shoulder buttons are swapped. The shoot button is supposed to be the bottom button, not the top one, and yet, developers have made that mistake since PS1 days. It's effing annoying.
