Does anyone know of any good third party PS3 controllers that look similar to 360 controllers? I know there can't be one t hat is exactly the same but similar would be nice.

This is about as close to a 360 controller you will get for the PS3, I even did a review about it (not sure they even make it anymore, this was a few years ago) for Neowin.

looks like it's still available http://www.dreamgear...w-wireless.html

edit: I know this is a bit off topic but one thing i can't seem to understand is why won't MS and Sony allow 3rd party controllers to connect wirelessly via bluetooth without having to use a dongle?

My friend bought a cheap Gioteck one and it's basically the same layout as an Xbox 360 controller. Seems to do the trick:

Can't really find anywhere to buy the GC-1. Shame, it looks like a good controller.
