    PS3 controllers have motion sensors for position and momentum in 3 dimensions;

    Sixaxis has no rumble motors, dualshock 3 does;

    PS3 controllers are wireless and also can work through their usb charging cable

    PS3 controllers have a higher range of values on the lower shoulder buttons, they hinge on levers now and are ideal for being used as triggers or gas pedal/brake.

    PS3 controllers have one extra button, the PS button, which brings up menu functions and syncs the controller.

    They are pretty much the same. But there are a few differences.

    PS2 controller plugs in using a wire/receiver. The PS3 controller uses Bluetooth for wireless connectivity and the internal battery of the controller is rechargeable.

    The PS3 controller’s L2 and R2 buttons have been redesigned.

    The PS3 controller also has SIXAXIS motion-sensor.

    Here are pictures of the PS3 controller.


    Here are pictures of the PS2 controller.
