    So i'm looking to hook up my ps3 controller to my pc in order to play console games that were ported to PC. Wondering if anyone has any experience doing this and what drivers you would recommend.

    I used just motioninjoy, it worked pretty well. There's youtube vids to help you set it up.

    ^^Thanks for the tip, looks like I wont need to throw some extra $$ around for an exceptionally good PC controller.

    Does the PS3 controller work through bluetooth on the PC? I have a Bluetooth adapter on my PC. That would be epic.

    You just need the sixaxis drivers for windows

    PS3 SIXAXIS driver for PC


    I don't have a PS3 controller yet, so I could not try if it actually works. But these drivers are around for a fairly long time, so I expect it to work.
