Rocketfish PS3 Rapid Fire Wireless Controller Review

I recently decided to get a new console. The choices were between the Xbox 360 and PS3 Slim. I really liked the PS3 Slim with Blu ray player. And the price of $262 with Bing Cashback made it worth it. The only thing I disliked about the PS3 Slim was that I hated the controller. I am coming from being an Xbox user who always preferred their controller over the DualShock.

Anyone who has used the Xbox controllers knows the layout of the Rocketfish Rapid Fire controller. The controller felt comfortable in hand and comes in a glossy black finished. On the bottom you will find a physical on/off switch. The controller uses Bluetooth technology and has a built in 550mAh Ni-MH battery that rechargeable with the included USB cable.

The great thing about third party controllers is they come up with new features that even the first party controller does not have. The Rocketfish Rapids Fire has a turbo like feature that can turn a game with semi-automatic weapon into fully automatic. This can give you an advantage in some games. Also just like the Sony controller the Rocketfish controller has motion-compatible and works with SIXAXIS games. In addition you can get in the game with dual rumble motors. Especially with games like Madden you need the full effect of vibration effect. The two analog sticks feel good as my Xbox controller.

If you need another controller for when friends come over the Rocketfish Rapid Fire Wireless Controller is a good choice. Half my friends have 360’s while the other half has PS3’s. So when someone comes over to play some games they can pick from the stock controller or the Rocketfish PS3 controller. I’d say I’m more comfortable with the Rocketfish as it fits my hands perfectly. Go and grab the Rocketfish PS3 Rapid Fire Wireless Controller today at Best Buy.

    Just bought this @ Best Buy for approximately $36+tax, also because I started with XBox 360 and added a PS3 to the mix recently. While playing Rainbow 6 Vegas for PS3 the first time, my thumbs couldn’t help but collide constantly on those thumb sticks, so I decided that, while I originally wanted to “just get used to” the standard, crappy, unimproved-since-the-PS1-days PS3 controller, I couldn’t take it very long. This isn’t exactly as good as the 360’s controller, but it’s damn close. The only weird thing is that the handles curve away from you more toward the bottom, which is a tad unnatural at first. But all things considered, it doesn’t lag, the buttons function precisely, and it’s the next-best thing to the 360 controller for a PS3 (not to mention that it’s cheaper than a new PS3 DualShock anyway!). I was comfortable using it right out of the box.

    This controller is ok but to me it’s not anything better than that. i had problems with certain games freezing up while entering or exiting rapid fire and some serious problems with it lagging on certain games if i used it wireless, i didn’t have the lagging problem with the usb cable connected though. the best thing i found on ebay from a seller in china is a rapid fire adapter that allows you to connect an xbox 360 wired controller to your ps3.
