GioTeck PS3 RealTriggers Review

Post by Mental_Gear on Fri Jun 04, 2010 1:32 pm

Not a game, but worth reviewing all the same.



Gioteck PS3 Realtriggers are an add-on for PS3 sixaxis and
dualshock 3 controllers which go over the L2 and R2 buttons. The name is a bit
misleading – the buttons on the controllers are already close to triggers –
these add-ons make them closer to the actual buttons on PS1 and PS2
controllers, and the lips at the edges will help to stop your fingers from
slipping off.

The triggers are easy to put on – just slide it over the
button and push it in slightly to snap it on. And since the triggers aren’t
specific to each button, you don’t need to mess around looking for a ‘left’ or
‘right’ mark.

Once on, the triggers grip on quite firmly, but can be
removed by pressing down at the lip until it comes free at the top, and slips
off with no damage done. For the most part, the triggers will stay firmly on
during play but there will be the odd time when you press too hard accidentally
on the lip, or drop the controller, where they’ll pop off, but these occasions
are pretty rare.

The plastic the triggers are made from blends perfectly with
the rest of the controller and is very resistant to knocks and scratches.

But at the end of the day, the most important thing is how
they feel during gameplay. I personally think they feel great – but my friend
isn’t a fan. I didn’t notice the difference at first, but after taking them off
after about a week of use, I realised how much more comfortable it made the
controller, especially in first-person shooters and racers. Once you try them
for a while, you’ll love them, especially if you liked the L2 and R2 buttons on
PS1 and PS2 controllers.

The triggers retail at most game stores for 5 euros, and
generally cheaper with online retailers.

The triggers aren’t for everyone, but at such a cheap price,
every PS3 owner should try them out to see if they offer them some extra
comfort during gaming – a fantastic bit of plastic.

These are a necessity for me... great review covered everything you need to know about this small but very useful add on, worth the money cheap as chips and works like a charm thanks.

I recommend everyone tries these out.
