How Batman Plays PS3

(click to enlarge)

There will be plenty of time to discuss everything about E3 shortly, but I just had to comment on this half-ludicrous, half awesome controller for Batman Arkham City I came across.

It’s “officially licensed” and it’s how I imagine Batman would play PS3 in the bat cave when there’s no crime to be fought. Unfortunately, as this is made by a third party, I can’t imagine it feels as nice as a traditional controller. Third party peripherals are really never going to be able to shake that “Mad Catz” stigma, I have to say.

    The picture is of the PS3 controller, not the Xbox 360 controller…

    So, this is how Batman would be playing PS3 when there’s no crime to be fought.

    are you sure that isn’t a ps3 controller? the face buttons and triggers look more ps3ish than xbox. I’d still buy it just for the location of the joysticks… That’s the only problem I have with the ps3 controller.

    why do you have a picture of the ps3 controller when the title is “How Batman Plays xbox”?

  • Oh wow, that’s really weird. Doesn’t that look almost exactly like Xbox controller though on first glance? Other than the symbols of course, which I missed.

    It’s the PS3 controller but with the Xbox design. I really like the PS3 dual shock so this controller is a pass for me, as much as I like Batman paraphernalia.

    I had two controllers by Mad Catz that both stopped working within like 6 months. Never again. It’s one of the few third party products that just do not stand up to name brand.

    Sony’s 360 envy is starting to get out of hand. Still, that’s one badass controller.

    its the batman guys … only he can play on an xbox with a ps3 controller :O

    on the otherhand it really looks like the unholy child of a xbox and a ps3 controller

    So… it’s a 360 controller crossed with a PS3 controller. Interesting, but I doubt it would be worth it; even for a Batman Game.
