So while I was loafing on the internet one day I came across this interesting attachment for the PS3 controller. Now here is the catch. It is sold only in the UK. The name of it is the GXP Comfort Play Pack. This little gem brings a level of comfort not seen with those cheap silicone skins. Now let me tell you a little about myself. I love to pimp out my PS3 controller. Playing FPS games I always look out for anything that can add a little personal customization to my controller. I have tried many types of grips and controllers. I currently own the Mad Catz MLG Pro Controller for the PS3. I tried the Silicon Grips found like a virus on ebay. I even tried the sticky grips that is very cool at first. But then after a while they begin to lose the stickiness.
So after trying all the rest I have come to use the latest in controller pimpness. the GXP is very good build quality. It have a rubber texture and unfortunately is a lint magnet. it adds a bit of girth to the already skinny PS3 controller handles. Another plus to these grips is that they do not need any glue adhesive.
Now the handle grips are very sturdy. They slide on and actually snaps on. I know!! When I saw that I was sold!! The triggers are not flimsy. They are very strong. Some usually come off as soon as you throw a grenade or take someones tags in BF3. Not these. After some raging in Mw3 it stood the test. Now putting them on was very easy.
So the big question is do they help in gaming. Well I have to say yes. Having a firm grasp of the controller really gives you that edge for those tight fire fight. I played all sorts of games with it. From popular FPS to exciting racers. Games like Assassin Creed 3, Super Street Fighter 4, Dead or Alive 5, NBA Jam and even Fat Princess. I didn’t feel uncomfortable playing any of those games with the grips provided.
All in all I feel that these are great and don’t cost that much. I live in the BVI and it cost me $30. Once you add shipping the price goes up. If you are like me and you want something to pimp out your controller and add a level of personal touch to your gaming experience give these grips a try. They are not expensive and they are worth the wait. Here is the link to purchase them from amazon UK.
