I have an Xbox 360 gamepad, which I want to use as a PS3 gamepad. I want to make it compatible with the game Shin Sangoku Musou 6 Moushouden (Dynasty Warriors 7) on PC. Is there any emulator software can do this?

To clarify, I am trying to find a PS3 Controller emulator. I know there is an Xbox 360 Controller emulator, I am trying to find a similar one but for PS3 controller.

I am doing this because Shin Sangoku Musou 6 Moushouden (Dynasty Warriors 7) on PC supports the PS3 controller best. When I use my Xbox 360 gamepad it doesn't recognize the buttons correctly and fully, and vibration also doesn't work.

How is emulating a PS3 controller going to help you play a PC game? –  Matthew Read Mar 21 '12 at 1:45
    
This doesn't make sense; the PS3 controller doesn't have official drivers for the PC so making the 360 controller act like it wouldn't be useful. What exactly are you trying to do? –  Prinny Brocka Mar 21 '12 at 1:51
    
I am trying to find a PS3 controller emulator. There is a XBOX 360 Controller emulator : code.google.com/p/x360ce. I am trying to find a similar one but for PS3 controller. –  JatSing Mar 21 '12 at 2:20

Hi @Foxtrot, I pasted it in comment because it is the updated information, it wasn't here before. –  JatSing Mar 25 '12 at 19:44

It may be easier to invest a couple of dollars and buy a second hand PS3 controller from Gamestop or similar store.

It wouldn't be that expensive and you can have a controller for any other titles you will get.

I believe MotionInJoy allows you to emulate a X360 controller using a PS3 controller if that is what you are looking for.

If not, MotionInJoy is basically the unofficial driver for PS3 controllers on Windows.

I think he is looking for the opposite. –  Blem Mar 24 '12 at 20:09
    
Yes, I am looking for the opposite –  JatSing Mar 24 '12 at 20:39
    
There's none that exist right now, but if you use X360ce and remap buttons until they are properly mapped, it's a workaround. –  SakuyaFM Mar 25 '12 at 17:02
    
@SakuyaFM, how, since X360ce is an emulator of Xbox360 gamepad not PS3 ? –  JatSing Mar 25 '12 at 19:46

http://dl.qj.net/playstation-3/tools-and-utilities/sixaxis-driver-for-pc.html This is a driver which will make your ps3 controller recognized on PC if that is what you are looking for, if not than sorry..

He's looking for a X360 driver/utility that will allow him to use an X360 controller and emulate it as a PS3 controller. AFAIK, there are none that exist. –  SakuyaFM Mar 25 '12 at 17:02

To me it seems you actually have to get a ps3 controller. Sorry. I cannot find an emulator. I think it might be because of the possible button differences (triangle,square,circle,x, rather than a,b,x,y). I know this isn't what your looking for, and I really am sorry... I spent quite a while trying to find a sufficient answer but couldn't find a single thing, except for one youtube video that I cannot seem to find again, and wasn't super helpful anyway (I believe it was just using a ps3 controller with an emulator, but titled incorrectly).

I believe that what you are looking for is a different driver needed for your XBox controller. Visit this page for the official direct-input drivers.

Do note that:

-The left and right trigger buttons will act as a single button, not independently
-The vibration effects will not be available
-Querying for headset devices will not be available
