Even though the game is cross-buy (meaning you get both the PS3 and Vita versions from a single purchase), the codes have to be activated from the corresponding console, so please leave a comment letting us know which version you want.

[Do It Yourself] How to change a DualShock 3 internal battery

Hi gamers!

Recently, I had to change the internal batteries of two of my three DualShock 3 controllers.
Why you ask? Because, ahem, my kids brought the controllers in their bath (but hey, why the hell not?).

As you can guess, the controllers didn’t really like that special treatment, and after picking them up, I wasn’t even able to CHARGE them. I have tried putting them both in a plastic bag containing rice for a few days, but even if they were completely dry, I still wasn’t able to boot them up. (!@#$)

Long story short, at this point, I could either drop 110$ worth of hardware in the garbage, or try something desperate. That’s when I thought of buying a new controller battery on ebay for a few dollars, and try to see if it worked, and surprise: it did!
