Mad Catz PS3 gamepads

Mad Catz has begun shipping some of its first third-party controllers for Sony's Playstation 3 console. Sold in wired and wireless varieties, the pads replicate some of the most important features of Sony's Sixaxis controller -- such as motion-sensing and a home button -- while remaining at least $10 cheaper. The pads are even improved in some regards, having quick-fire triggers, and the option of four different colors (red, blue, black and silver). The shape may also be more comfortable for some users. The wired pad is on sale for $30, while the wireless version is $40 and requires two AA batteries.
