Nyko Zero Wireless Controller for PS3
For every quality we like about the Zero, it has some fault that brings its score back down. The extra-long USB cord and removable rechargeable batteries are nice, but we don't find its horseshoe design very comfortable.
The 2.4 GHz wireless signal covers 30 feet and doesn't drop its signal, but the face buttons and d-pad aren't as responsive as we'd like. And even though this is the first PS3 controller to support rumble and tilt sensitivity, it doesn't provide rumble support for PS2 games. Sorry, PS3 owners, we might be waiting until the DualShock 3 releases before we get a great PS3 controller.
