That's right, a DualShock3 Controller. The PS3 one. And yes, a wired connection.
My computer does not have bluetooth compatibility. Is there any way for me to pair a DS3 controller on a wired connection to my PC using IM, and if so, could someone give me step-by-step instructions on how to do so? I specifically want to play SurvivalCraft 2, and to play Steam games with the controller.
