Use Gamestop Wireless PS3 Controller on Your PC

Introduction: Use Gamestop Wireless PS3 Controller on Your PC

When I first bought this controller, I thought, "Man, this would make a cool cheap wireless gamepad" . So, I set out looking for drivers, but to no avail. Then I realized that you don't need them, because XP-7 automatically recognizes the gamepad. Go ahead and plug it in, and then go to "Control Panel/ Printers and Other Hardware/ Game controllers". You'll see your PS3 controller listed, and all the buttons work! All you'll need now is a program to map the controller buttons. There are quite a few out there, like Xpadder 5.3 or GlovePIE. I prefer Xpadder because of it's simplicity. If you do choose Xpadder, beware that versions 5.3 and below are free. But anything above 5.3, and you have to buy it.

    Just to make it clear, these instructions are for the Gamestop brand controller only. If you want to use a Sony brand controller, there are tons of sites covering it.
