Making the PS3 controller work in Windows 10

I recently began playing Rocket League on my PC, but didn’t find it satisfying that I had to use my keyboard and mouse. Luckily I already have a PS3, and with the USB-connection that comes along with the controllers, I was able to use them to play.

So, on to making it work.

  1. First download the software Motion Joy DS3 from When it finishes downloading, install it.
  2. Plug in your PS3 controller through the USB connection.
  3. Set the date on your system back to the year 2014
  4. Go to Driver Manager and check the box next to Port.. under Hardware Location, and click Install all.
  5. Click on Profiles and select the fifth option – Xinput-default Xbox 360 controller emulator.
  6. Set the date back to what it was.
  7. Finally, click Enable.

Whenever you want to play a game and use your PS3 controller, connect your controller with a USB cable, fire up the program DS3 Tool and click Enable. Then start your game, and the controller should work!
