Can the Dualshock 3 be used on a PC via the cable used for charging?

You need to get a driver, and apparently it doesn't work with the latest versions of Windows. I use it all the time though, but I run XP.

As in Windows 8? I use 7, so I should be fine.

Don't quote me on this, but I was talking to another guy on here a while back and I think he was having problems getting one to work on Windows 7.

Hm, well there's a video on Youtube of a guy installing it on 7, so I guess there's no real issue.

You'd probably be better off going on eBay or Amazon and getting a wired 360 controller since from my experience, getting the PS3 controller to work on PC is a pain in the ass.

I use it on win 7 all the time. Hit or miss on which games it will work on tho. Use YouTube to find the proper setup and drivers.

Not really. All you need is MotionJoy, and that's it. I use my PS3 controller on my PC constantly. All you gotta do is bring up MotionJoy, and select "Enable". It's best if you choose the 360 controller emulation though, since most stuff I got off Steam would only work 100% correctly if I had that enabled.

Welp, I got it to work(not after three hours, just saying this now). Hopefully it'll work with games.
