Last night my friend invited me over to his place for some gaming sessions. I took along my Wireless Dual shock PS3 controller and he was ready with his wired gear. I always carry my own controller as this give me much control over my actions and button press. Changing controller usually take more time to adjust. However, controllers have memory settings which need to be wiped out before you can connect to a new console. Read on to know how I sync my PS3 controller with new consoles.
