Holdiay Guide to Gaming - Rock Candy Controllers

There seems to be one product in particular, which find its way under our tree year after year. What is it you might wonder? New gaming controllers of course; for the price I’m always amazed at how fast they wear out!

This year I came across a newer line of controllers at a reasonable price, Rock Candy where color is expression.




The Rock Candy controller line for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii comes in an array of stunning, eye catching colors that adds flair to the otherwise boring selection of black, white and gray gaming controllers.

This colorful line of sleek new gaming controllers designed to offer gamers maximum control and maximum self-expression at a minimum price. While they are not wireless, I still found them an affordable option for under the tree. After all if a controller isn’t breaking someone is forgetting to charge it! 

Note - the Rock Candy Gesture Controller for Wii is a wireless remote compatible with Wii™ MotionPlus; Xbox and PS3 Rock Candy controllers are wired.

I chose the PS3 controller is a sleek red, I knew the kids and hubby would approve of.


The Rock Candy™ controller for PlayStation® 3 features an updated design to provide the PS3® gamer with hours of comfortable gaming.

This wired controller is slightly smaller than a traditional PS3 controller, and the buttons have been positioned to resemble a 360 controller, with the left analog stick being moved up and to the left, with the d-pad resting below. This was actually a selling point for us, as we own one another "off brand" controller, which would have made are favorites list on price and design if not for flimsy features. This set-up makes for easier game play and I still wonder why PlayStation didn’t go with this set-up initially. I will mention while we prefer the 360 set-up, you might find it takes some time to get used to – unless you’re an Xbox player as well, then you might openly welcome this change.

There is also a slight downside; the controller lacks a rumble feature and the USB wiring could definitely be longer.

When all is said, this is a brand I would think about again in the future and easily one of my favorites. With a better design and the ability to give any gamer who likes to flaunt their unique personality and stand out from the crowd, the chance to do just that!

I like these! Would make an awesome stocking stuffer for my husband, but the fact that they're not wireless for PS3 would guarantee he'd never use it. :(
