PS3 Review – GioTeck RealTriggers

July 19, 2009 Written by Richard Allen

One argument some Xbox 360 owners have against the DualShock 3 is the lack of “triggers” for the lower shoulder buttons. Gioteck has remedied this issue nicely and any shooter fan should not be without RealTriggers.

The installation procedure for RealTriggers could not be simpler. Just clip them on your R2 and L2 buttons and you are done. Generally they stay securely fashioned, but on occasion they will pop off. Be careful, it could be a choke hazard for a little one roaming your domicile.

After using the RealTriggers for a few months there are few games that do not benefit from it. Shooters are an immediate great fit and driving games benefit quite nicely from the extended reach. Some games that require us of both R1 and R2 or L1 and L2 at similar times may not provide the same benefits.

Killzone 2 and Resistance 2 are two games that the real triggers both give immediate benefits to.  Warhawk, on the other hand, wasn’t as good as an experience when piloting.  It’s nice to have the option to take them off when necessary.

They are priced right at only $4.99.

A must have for shooter fans.

Installation could not be easier.

Priced right anyone can afford these puppies.
