Gampads, Dual shock = Vibration Feedback?

Hello, I want to buy a gamepad but im confused ofver the terminology. The gampad i have my eye on is 2 x My-LINK Dual Shock Gamepad. The details are not very clear, so I cant tell whether it will have vibration, does Dual Shock mean Vibration, if not what does it mean?

Thank you

Not sure tbh as its not crystal clear it looks like it has but I wouldnt say for sure.

Also all the reviews on that one that I have just read say its totally rubbish anyway.

My advice is to get a ps2 pad and a ps2-usb adaptor and use one of those instead.

Just get a 360 controller, already has a USB connection. Might be a bit more expensive but it'll last you yonks.

What review is that, this gamepad is from amazon:

www{DOT}amazon{DOT}co{DOT}uk/MY-Link-Shock-Gamepad-Controller-Silver/dp/B000X1HAWM/ref=pd_sbs_ce_1

Please replace the {DOT} with a .

The reviews look good?

Re: Gampads, Dual shock = Vibration Feedback?

Ah that's different to the one I saw on there.

Amazon.co.uk: MY-Link 2 x USB 2.0 Dual Shock Gamepad Game Controller: Electronics & Photo Amazon.co.uk: MY-Link 2 x USB 2.0 Dual Shock Gamepad Game Controller: Electronics & Photo

I still think if you have access to a ps pad then one of those is the way to go but at the end of the day its your choice.

Another vote for the PS2 pad here.

Re: Gampads, Dual shock = Vibration Feedback?

must add a third for the PS2 pad via USB option, or saving for the Xbox pad.

dual shock usually means it has two vibration motors. at least, this is what it meant for the PS2 pads.
