Sony DualShock 3 controller shipping to retailers, hitting shelves next week


The new Sony DualShock 3 controller is on its way to retailers as I write this.

Scheduled to make its debut on retail shelves across the US next week on April 14th, the new DualShock3 will include both the SIXAXIS motion-sensing feature of the original Playstation 3 controller and adds the rumble feature found in previous Playstation controllers.

Worried that there won’t be any games that support the new rumble features? Don’t be–here’s a list and its pretty comprehensive:

  • SCEA – Formula One Championship Edition* (PS3)
  • SCEA – MotorStorm* (PS3)
  • SCEA – High Velocity Bowling (PSN)
  • SCEA – MLB 08: The Show (PS3)
  • SCEA – Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (PS3)
  • SCEA – Resistance: Fall of Man* (PS3)
  • SCEA – Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (PS3)
  • SCEA – Go! Sports Ski* (PSN)
  • SCEA – Folklore* (PS3)
  • SCEA – Heavenly Sword* (PS3)
  • SCEA – Warhawk* (PSN / PS3)
  • SCEA – Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
  • SCEA – Super Stardust HD* (PSN)
  • SCEA – Snakeball (PSN)
  • SCEA – Toy Home (PSN)
  • SCEA – PSOne Emulation (PSN)
  • SCEA – Piyotama (PSN)
  • SCEA – PixelJunk Monsters (PSN)
  • SCEA – Blast Factor* (PSN)
  • Sega – Condemned 2: Bloodshot (PS3)
  • Ubisoft – Lost: Via Domus (PS3)
  • Ubisoft – Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2* (PS3)
  • EA – Burnout Paradise (PS3)
  • KOEI – Dynasty Warriors 6 (PS3)
  • Capcom – Devil May Cry 4 (PS3)
  • Atari – Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit (PS3)
  • Disney Interactive – Turok (PS3)
  • Konami – Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
  • Atari – Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit (PS3)

Games with an asterisk need to download an update before the rumble feature will be supported.

If you check the list in the post at Ars Technica you might noticed that a few games, like Gran Turismo 5 and MGS4, seem to be missing. The list was newer here and included games that were “coming soon” so I made sure and grab the missing titles and add them to this post (you’re welcome).
