the HKS Racing Controller is born out of a collaboration between the California-based peripheral maker, Eagle3 and the legendary Japanese automotive racing modification company, HKS. with a 37 years old history, HKS is synonymous with racing and it couldn’t get any more appropriate then to brand the controller under HKS Racing. the form and shape of the HKS Racing Controller resembles the DualShock 3 controller and spots the familiar R1/R2, L1/L2 trigger buttons but that’s where the similarity ends.
