    PS3 Controller Driver Available for Windows Vista

    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? :p More PlayStation 3 News...

    This is good news I guess, but I myself already have one of those previous drivers installed .. This would've been an exceptionally good, ground-breaking news, if this driver supported the PS3 controller's bluetooth connection, hence meaning no wires even when using the controller with a PC.

    Hey guys, after a little googlin' i stumbled on a cool link. Theres a guy who's developed a nice tool to deal with the Sixaxis via Bluetooth.

    It should, but if not the "Sixaxis PS3 Win32 Driver For PC" linked in the first post definitely does.

    Have just tried this with Windows XP SP3 and it works really fine, thank god. Now i can throw away my old joystick and use a good one. Thanks for pointing this.

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

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