    • A major feature of the controller is the ability to sense both rotational orientation and translational acceleration along all three dimensional axes, providing six degrees of motion control.
    • The SIXAXIS can operate for up to 30 hours on a full charge off of its 3.7 V Li-ion battery.
    • It utilizes Bluetooth wireless technology.
    • The controller is charged through a mini USB 2.0 port located on the top.
    • The SIXAXIS features finer analog sensitivity than the DualShock 2 -- four times the precision.
    • A row of four numbered LED port indicators are on the top of the controller, to identify and distinguish multiple wireless controllers.
    • The R2 and L2 buttons are now trigger-like allowing for a larger gradient.

    This controller has been supplanted by the DualShock 3 as the official controller for the PlayStation 3.
