"1. Download this archive and install the filter driver (libusb-win32-filter-bin-
2. Unpack ps3sixaxis_en.exe
3. Plug the SIXAXIS into your PC.
4. Run ps3sixaxis_en.exe once.
5. Push the PS button on the SIXAXIS once if it doesn’t see it straight away.

Unfortunately, the motion sensing features aren’t possible on the PC (not yet as least). But still, this is pretty easy way to net yourself a free usable game pad."

To use a PS3 controller u need the correct drives and a bluetooth device to interact with any wireless controller.

The best way to configure the PS3 controller is to use and download JoyToKey.

Bluetooth and a bit of configuring, it's possible but really difficult to set up especially on Source games.

I'm not use that you can use PS3 constrollers very easily on a PC. I'ts problably possible though. If you just want a game controller to play with, Xbox360 controllers can plug into a usb port and are natively supported in Portal 2 on the PC.

Currently the only signed drivers for SIXAXIS on the PC are MotionInJoy ( however they are not especially stable and may not be compatible with all games.
