The 'PS3 Navigation Controller' is designed for use in conjunction with a 'Move' controller to play Playstation Move compatible games on a PS3. Unfortunately, it's independant use is highly restricted on PS3 games.

However, with the help of two pieces of software, it can be used for one handed (left or right) gameplay on a PC.

In  addition to a PS3 Navigation Controller (and a USB charging cable for it) you will need Xpadder ($9.99) and MotioninJoy Gamepad Tool (I used Version 0.4.0002) (free).

This, as with many emulaters (not to mention using two at the same time!), wasn't completly plain sailing for me. A little tweaking and scanning of tutorials may be required.

Once both bits of software are installed, and you have plugged in you PS3 Navigation Controller (hopefully you'll get a constant red light on the led), follow the instructions in the video below:

    Good stuff. Your desktop is still a shambles though, Bill! So, with X-padder, can you cycle through multiple-profiles with the press of a button? Just wondering if you can switch the function of the analogue stick. Also, through X-padder, is the analogue stick, still analogue, or is it kicking out digital signals?

    I thought it was looking pretty tidy! You open profiles on Xpadder like opening a doc on anything else. The analogue stick uses digital signals e.g. in this video it is replicating the mouse cursor moving in different direction, whilst for another game I may want to replicate the W,A,S,D keys etc so I would assign 'W' to the upwards movement etc
