How to Make a Turbo Controller for a PS3


PlayStation 3, or PS3, is a gaming system from Sony. While this is one of the most cutting-edge systems on the market upon its release, the controller is somewhat limited. Users playing a first-person shooting game may find that their virtual gun does not shoot as quickly as they would like. There is a simple way that anyone can modify their controller to make it rapid fire.

Things You'll Need

  • PlayStation 3 controller Flathead screwdriver Paperclip
  • Use the flathead screwdriver to remove the R2 button. This is just the plastic covering; it can be removed and popped back into place with no damage being done to the controller.

  • Remove the R1 button following the same instructions as in Step 1.

  • Remove the little circular piece of rubber from underneath the R1 button. Again, this action is reversible, so you do not have to worry about breaking the controller.

  • Locate and remove the circular rubber tab from underneath the R2 button.

  • Bend the paperclip into three sections about a half-inch long on each side. This should result in a U-shaped paperclip.

  • Bend the paperclip again, this time halfway up the vertical posts of the U-shaped paperclip. Think of two "7s" connected at the top by a horizontal bar.

  • Put the ends of the paperclip in each of the two holes that were created by removing the rubber tabs from Steps 3 and 4. Place it with the fat part of the paperclip coming off of the right side of the controller. This will allow your right hand to push down on the paperclip as if it were the R1 and R2 button together.
