Use of the controller depends on the game you decide to load into your PS3. You have 4 shoulder buttons, the start and select buttons and the PS home button used to get to the cross media bar. On the controller there is also a D-pad the circle, square, triangle and X buttons each button performs a different action and feel very responsive to the touch. PlayStation 3 analog sticks feel fluent to the movement on screen whether hugging a corner in racing, lining up for a head shot or ready to pummel an opponent.
Quality of the controllers is very high as far as build goes having a daughter has helped test this very well. DualShock 3 controllers are made of a plastic coating that is smooth buttons are made of a bit harder plastic coating so the contrast is nice. Analog sticks are rubberized providing for a better grip when the moment counts. Rumble with the ability for Motion control is a great addition. Also the blue tooth feature is nice for those times you want to step away just to have the freedom to walk away without cords holding you down.
As most gamers know the price for first party peripherals are very often much higher then third party competitors. Build quality plus overall features make the added price worth it. Sony may have made the Candy Pink DualShock 3 to be used by any gamer though females are sure to feel like they have their own personalized controller. Overall the controller feels natural to the shape of your hands. If you have used a PS2 controller you are sure to feel at home with the PS3 controller.
