Gift Tip 98: PS3 Real Arcade Pro. 3-SA Arcade Controller For Sony PS3
 
Buy PS3 Real Arcade Pro. 3-SA from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is a Special Addition version of a high-end next generation arcade style controller. Recommended for fighting, action, shooting and FPS games this controller brings the old school arcade feel to your living room. With 8 fully-customizable buttons, The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA offers unparalleled control of the action. The Turbo (20times/sec) function can be set on all buttons with three settings: Slow, Normal, Fast. The Stick lever can be set as digital, left analog, or right analog. The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is a USB controller, compatible with PC and PS3.

The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA uses a lollypop joystick, the same form-factor and case as the other Real Arcade Pro sticks. Similar to earlier HRAPs, the new stick uses actual arcade buttons to give gamers an authentic coin-op experience at home. This newest addition adds a "PS" button. The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA connects to the PS3 by way of USB cable. The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is 16.2 x 9.5 x 5.3 inches and weighs 5.7 pounds, which gives added stability for better gameplay. This controller will give your PS3 the feel and control of a real arcade game.

The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is very user friendly and its smoothness makes it even friendlier. It’s fairly heavy and has rubber on the bottom for stability. However, the Turbo, Home, R3, L3 Buttons are next to each other and it is hard to see the labels for them. Although all the parts are Sanwa (which are the best, IMO), swapping parts is difficult. The cord is very long but there is no compartment for it.

Great Gift For
The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is a great gift for PS3 gamers who still know what a gaming Arcade is.

Price and Where to Buy
The PS3 Real Arcade Pro 3 SA is selling for $89.99 on Amazon.com.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
