DS3 Tool allows you to connect PlayStation controllers to your windows Machine to use with PC games. It supports Sixaxis and DualShock 3 type controllers. This allows gamers who love the feel of PlayStation controllers to maintain this familiarity on a variety of PC games and platforms.

One of the things that many gamers feel PC gaming lacks is the responsive and well-designed control of a console controller. While there are a myriad of controllers available for PCs, usually game console controls have the most ergonomic and well thought out design. Even though many of these devices support Bluetooth and USB, they often cannot communicate with PC games and be used as a native controller would.

The DS3 Tool allows you to do this. The PC program is free, although it does show banner ads occasionally. The vibration feedback features – used in some games to enhance an on-screen collision or explosion with a shudder in your controller – will even function with games that support this type of feedback with official Microsoft controllers. Handy interface testing tools allow you verify that everything is working as expected and even send a test jolt to the controller.

Another advantage consoles have over PC games is the local multiplayer ability. While PCs excel in networked gaming, consoles often have better 4-player “same room” gaming support. With the DS3 tool, you can connect up to four PlayStation controllers, allowing you and 3 friends to all play your favorite PC games with the familiar and comfortable controls of the PlayStation controller.
