Good news for PS3 owners. A japanese coder has released Windows Drivers for the Dualshock 3 and SIXAXIS PS3 Controllers with rumble support.

There are 4 drivers in total

ds3drv_1.02 - Normal Driver
ds3drv_dx_1.02 - dx driver
SDDriverSetting - utility to tweak some settings
ForceFeedbackDriver - rumble driver, you need to install the first or second driver too

Installation
Download either the first or second driver, then open the device manager and search for the dualshock/sixaxis under hid devices, it should be called USB Human Interface Device
then choose update driver and select the driver that you just downloaded.

Rumble
To install the rumble driver just right click on the .inf file and choose install
when you'll start a game you'll see a tray icon used to tweak rumble settings, the first menu option is to toggle rumble the second one will open a window where you can set the strength of the force feedback.

Posted Image
The first value is the amplification ratio
The second one is the minimum value at which to start the small motors
The third and fourth one are the value of the large motors
The last value is probably the maximum strength


:download: Download from here or from dcemu

This is actually old news.
Infact, I can use an unnoffical PS3 Controller, and it works, automatically without a driver.

There are official drivers for Xbox 360 wired and wireless controllers which work flawlessly on almost all the Windows games.
Sony should also do the same. :(

Haha, Microsoft would probably just put their drivers into an automatic update for Windows Defender
