May 13, 2010 // 7:59 pm - Today (linked above) has announced their new IntensaFire controller modification for use with DS3 wireless controllers on Sony's PS3 entertainment system.

For FPS addicts who don't consider it cheating, the IntensaFire controller modifies PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 (Model #CECHZC2U) wireless controllers, allowing them to transform to a rapid-fire controller.

Benefits include: Rapid-fire R1, R2, L1 and the "X" button, along with dual-rapid fire, 8-mode sleeper, works in all PS3 controllers, easy installation, 3-customizable user programmer-mode, does not require a more powerful battery, and easy to program for all future games.

Finally, they have PS3 Installation Instructions available online in PDF format, and below is the official press release.

Press Release: PS3 INTENSAFIRE™

From the minds of gamers. We saw a need in the gaming market. Console and accessory customization is a large part of the gaming world. The problem was that gamers buy mod kits for their controllers only to find out they were too complex to assemble themselves. So we partnered with an engineering team to get a product to the gamers that eliminates the technical curve, and offers more than the standard mod kit does.

What does it do?

The PS3 INTENSAFIRE™ enhances the newer PS3 Dual Shock 3 controllers allowing them to transform to rapid fire controllers. The 8-mode sleeper settings, include rapid fire to the R1, R2 and "X" buttons. There are 8 total modes with 5 preset modes and 3 user customizable programmable modes.

It uses the D-Pad to toggle modes, and on and off. Usable in all PS3 Games, including gamer favorites: KillZone 2, The Call of Duty series, BattleField Bad Company 2, and other current and future first person shooter and fighting games. The IntensaFIRE promises to bring your gaming to the next level.

How is it better?

Rapid-fire mod kits exist. The PS3 INTENSAFIRE™ however, is a complete user programmable rapid fire kit that you can install yourself... EASILY. There are controllers on the market, prefabricated, that do what the PS3 INTENSAFIRE™ offers, each controller going for well over $150.

We offer a kit that is extremely simple to install, taking no more than 2 minutes with no tools for less than half the cost of the prefabricated units.

Other mod kits require drilling, wiring, gluing, and deconstruction of your controllers. The PS3 INTENSAFIRE™ is a snap on clip that needs none of the above tools. Connect the PS3 INTENSAFIRE™ flex board to the controller and you're ready to go!

Bonus: You get two free LED's to customize your controller that go in with just a clip. You have the option to change these LED's in the middle of a match; its that easy to do!

This was amazingly simple to install. It clips (well more like lays) atop the controller controller (lol)

Anyways, activation is simple. Holding Left on the D-Pad for 4 seconds was as simple as it gets.

As I currently have only 1 game, and 3 demos, and a blu-ray drive with a missing magnetic spindle, I'll have to update everyone either tomorrow or the next day when I get everything all situated here. I can feel the anticipation for my review, but as I quote "All good things will come in time"

I will most likely have an HD video for everyone as well.

I want to thank BGR Mods for providing this awesome IntensaFire chip.
Design is the best of the best, Quality is by far damn amazing (Made in USA. Big +!), and installation was Kick-ass.

just got the package today. lightning fast shipping btw (FROM CANADA??). UPS handled it quickly.

not only that. before I even begin to take apart my controller I was greeted with a nice letter ensuring me this is top-notch work.

The chip is fairly tiny. that of which being great for an semi-easy install. Since my hands aren't really still sometimes, this would result in a problem, But let's get down to business.

Bare with me everyone, I am at this point actually dissembling my DS3 at this point.

Pics follow, please note I cannot find my Canon camera and used my Sony handycam.
So quality may be a bit low.

Actually, I have 4 Sixaxis and Dual-Shock controllers, two of each, from both 2007 (launch) and 2009-2010 production models, to give you a broader test scope if interested. I'd be happy to swap back and forth among them to test it out.
