Report misleading

Better DS3 is a software that installs a driver that allows a user to use their PlayStation controller on their computer. It allows the user to use the driver without a great likelihood of exposing the user to ads - however, some users have reported adware. 


  • Better DS3 recognizes pressure sensitivity on controller buttons
  • Better DS3 allows controllers to connect through USB or Bluetooth
  • Better DS3 is downloadable to use locally and when the user is offline
  • Better DS3 is compatible with MotionJoy Driver 0.7.1001

Better DS3 allows the user to use a console controller as a PC controller without the hassles of trying to make a controller work with a system it was not designed for. Better DS3 allows for pressure sensitivity, allows the user to set vibration level, allows for blue tooth pairing and USB plugin, and allows for the user to set all of these variables and save them. This means that each time the user plugs in the same controller or a different controller, they do not have to redo all of the settings they like, instead, they can simply plug in/connect and play. Better DS3 also does not go online, which means that there should not be ads popping up while the user is in game, instead the driver is local and does not communicate with anything online. Better DS3 seems like a better alternative than MotionJoy, but users also report that there are some things that can be improved. One user decided not to run BetterDS3, but instead, simply click on the drivers after the download and run the drivers. The user said he did this in order to try to avoid ads that he reported came with Better DS3 when he ran the program. As always, beware what you download from the internet and make sure to read reviews prior to clicking that download button.

It is safer to use than other popular programs the do the same thing as Better DS3, such as Motion Joy.

Better DS3 has been tested to work on Windows XP, 7, and 8

Better DS3 is a program that lets you connect your PlayStation controller to your computer! So you can play games as if you had your console with you, while only have to use your PC. It doesn't connect to the internet, which means a safer experinence, and no ads! Woo!

Better DS3 for Windows is software that allows you to connect your PS3+ controller to your pc and you can control the game. Not aware of how trustworthy this site is and it is not the only software catalyst to do this, and yet, it is one of the few that supposedly can. If you want to try gaming a different way on the weekend and don't mind giving one of these mild threat programs a chance, Better DS3 is fair-game.
I have used this programs for a long time now and it has not given me any problems what so ever, my PS3 controllers have never disconnect from my PC while using it. I would recommend it.
