I have a Ps3 but I purchased the Navigation controller for an entirely different reason. I use the Navi controller to control my tablet-PC when I use Photoshop/Clip Studio for painting/sketching. It may not have as many buttons as PC gaming keypads but it's shape and wireless feature makes it worth it. With just the Navi controller and a stylus, I can do everything but typing.

When used with Xpadder (a keyboard/mouse simulator for game controllers) you can increase the number of actions per button and have immense control over how the controller functions. However, it will not function like this out of the box as it will require third party drivers/software (see below). Xpadder also has auto-profile so you can have specific profiles for all your programs (assuming you can remember all your buttons).

Examples of my setup:
-The R1 and R2 is set to change the controller profile of the stick/buttons so I can have 2 more sets of functions. I have an alternate profile accessed by holding down the trigger. This switches to my image manipulation profile which consist of "hue/saturation, color balance, transform tool and etc.. mapped to the D-pad (each having 2 possible actions each)
-More than one action per button. Tap = Action1, hold for 0.5 sec = Action2, and etc.. For example: tap for undo, hold for redo.
-Map mouse buttons (for mouse specific navigational hot-keys in 2D/3D software).

*Please do appropriate research before attempting, I will not be responsible for any damages you incur.*
The controller does not work normally in windows so you will need third party software for this to work (search for "Xinput wrapper"). If you want the wireless function you will need to dedicate a usb port for a compatible usb Bluetooth dongle. Since Sony doesn't supply drivers for this controller, the Xbox 360 controller driver will be used for this controller to function as stated in the instructions. Once this is installed you may also use any other Ps3/Ps4 controller or together (up to 4 controllers).

Hi; well its obvious to most that you Can't Play a PS3 with a Move Controller With Out One of these super great PSN motion controllers. This piece controls the direction and that is why they called it the navigator. The navigator works in tandem with the piece that has the ball on it and these two pieces and the camera are required, if you want to use the move controller on certain marked PS3 games only. Check the PS3 game package to see if it is Move Compatible !

You don't need this guy. It doesn't do anything special unless the shooting games you are playing that requires all those buttons very handy. Otherwise, no use at all.

While not a necessary controller, it is a lot more comfortable and maneuverable than using a Sixaxis or Dualshock 3 controller with one hand. Also a lot better for left handed people I'm sure.

It's very sturdy, the d-pad is great and easy to reach. As are the other buttons on it. I haven't had any battery life issues. My only gripe is that mine didn't come with a strap.

I got this to add on to the remote that came with the sports pack, and I think it's pretty cool... kinda hard to write a review for something that is just a small add on. But all in all pretty good.

Bought this move controller to use with a xim4 mouse adaptor for ps4. I feel this is a much better option than using a keyboard or regular controller with the mouse. Granted the analog stick and trigger buttons aren't as smooth as ps4 or even PS3 dual shock but it does the trick as a comfortable analog controller to use with a mouse. One warning is you'll potentially need to buy another usb cable to have this plugged into a xim4 or other mouse adaptor hub.

Together with move, it is just nice in some games. Takes some time to master it together with move controller. Especially good with gladiators when you are 1 on 1 with 4 controllers. Shield and sword.

The item arrived damaged, cracked casing, buttons do not work. Very disappointed. The expectation was "used item, very good condition".
