I have 2 PS3 controllers (dualshock 3, brokens), I am trying to use the joysticks, but I don`t know how to wire it out cause they have 4 legs instead 3 so I need help for the connections.

Have you checked with a multimeter to see if two of those terminals are connected together? 

If you took the joysticks out of a PS3 controller you can look at the circuit board to see if one of the terminals is not used or two of the terminals are connected together on the board.

The output could be almost anything: analog voltage, quadrature pulses, I2C serial...

I don't suppose there are any manufacturer's markings on the joysticks.
