The SC3 Wireless pad is a beast of a controller. The initial appearance is it looks closer to a Dualshock 4 rather than the newer PlayStation 5 controllers, it looks like a general run of the mill 3rd party pad. Turn it on and instantly it starts to feel premium, I love the colors on it as they flow around the controller, the cycle all colors feature being a particular winner. The buttons are click and responsive, the d-pad is one of the best d-pads I have used in a while with a squishy yet responsive control feel. I use it a lot with my pc and it did connect to my Playstation 5 but you get a whole this pad doesn’t have the haptic and support message. Instead of haptic, it does the next best thing is it has its own rumble motors sat within the triggers so you feel every button press in-game, it’s not haptic but it does the job. My only real issues with the pad are the screws for the fascias as they are small and feel like they will break, so much so I have changed the facia once and left it alone, it ain’t a good feeling plus I have big hands and you are given a screwdriver the size of a small battery. In summary, I think the pad still looks cheap or should I say cheaper than it is, use or even just hold the pad and you can feel where the quality is from the lighting to the customisation to the excellent buttons and sticks, being able to change the height of each individual thumbstick is brilliant. At the end of the day, if you don’t have a Playstation 5 with the haptic feedback controller, this is the next best thing.
