September 21, 2008 // 7:03 pm - Although Googling takes this back to at least 2007 and the Chinese author's Web site linked in the application appears dead, I don't see this in our PS3 Downloads section yet so here goes, from the source link above:

A Chinese programmer has put together a PS3 controller driver that works with standard USB HID. That driver is called SixAxisDriver, and you can grab it right here. Simply run the install, load the driver, reboot Vista, and your controller will be identified and will start working!

We do, however, already have a several similar utilities in our archive including a Sixaxis PS3 Linux Driver For PC and a Sixaxis PS3 Win32 Driver For PC among others for those interested... the more, the merrier eh?

Just registed and i already am loving all this stuff i can do with ma ps3. I found misc little hacks/mods goodling but this ps3 news seems to be the most up to date/ best collection of info. What one of theses drives works best for vista? I see there are diffrent ones you are all using and id prefer to get the best one first lol. The GF would probably like playing sims with a controler instead of a keyboard and mouse lol

All PC games that support a controller. Plus you may need to configure the controller in windows before you use it in a game.

tried this twice with Vista 64 bit with absolutely no luck at all. Tried running it and the libusb service in WinXP compatibility mode with no luck as well.

It wouldn't work for me... shouldn't I be able to use it on any computer game?
