Sony DualShock 3 controller starting to show-up at US US retailers
If you’re been to get yourself a Sony Playstation 3 DualShock 3 controller, act fast–looks like some retailers have them already and if they do expect the $54.99 controllers to sell out quickly.
The release date was supposed to be the 14th, but check your local retailer–they might already have it available.
What’s a DualShock 3 controller?
In case you’re a PS3 fan but have someone managed to avoid this bit of info so far, the DualShock 3 controller is a new wireless controller for the PS3 console that replaces what the SIXAXIS controller (the controller that shipped with the PS3 and until now was the only first-party controller option) took away–the rumble feature.
The new DualShock 3 keeps the motion sensing goodness of the SIXAXIS controller while adding back the rumble feature which, if you’re really, really new to modern video games, is the ability of the controller to vibrate during a game to simulate things like rockets igniting, guns firing, being shot, etc.
