Sony details European DualShock 3 launch date
Vibration gaming coming to Blighty
Rumours about when Sony will release the DualShock 3 wireless PlayStation 3 controller have been rumbling for ages. But now the electronics giant’s finally broken its silence and named the date.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has confirmed that the controller will hit European stores - yes, we said European, not Japanese - on 2 July.
For any gamers who’ve been living under a rock since the introduction of the PlayStation 3 in Europe in March 2007, the new controller supersedes the bundled Sixaxis unit by adding vibration. The controller's thought to feature two vibration styles: weak or, well, a slightly stronger mode.
So far several titles have been confirmed as compatible with the new controller, including Resistance: Fall of Man and Gran Turismo 5.
David Reeves, SCEE's president, said Sony hopes its introduction of the rumbling console will “add to the intense gaming experience” for PS3 fans.
The DualShock 3 controller will set you back £40 (€50/$80).
@Fake Fake Mark.
I'm confusing myself now, all i wanted to do was have a nice shaped controller to fit up my arse.
I'm so pathetic, i've shamed myself.
Does anyone fancy coming to my PS3 Dual Shock Bondage Party?
Do you have freaky hands or something then?
The boomerang was only a concept, idiot. All companies do concepts... I don't see what your pathetic point is...
how is it not out here yet? got mine for Christmas 07 from Japan, and only cost £34 with P&P!
Still, not all bad, maybe it'll mean stores will start flogging old sixaxis's at a bargain price? :D
Oh sorry, I'd fallen asleep waiting for Sony to release these in Europe, that continent they despise so much. A bit too late though, I already got 2 of these a couple of months ago from eBay at £30 each and they're damn good. Slightly better sticks again too.
So everyone, BUY FROM EBAY, screw Sony and their Euro delays.
Why so backwards in europe?????
Ebay people Ebay!
I've have mine for nigh on 6 months now, for all of £30. Was delivered in a week and a half.
How can anyone play MGS4 without one! "I'll move your controller with my mental power!" -aaahh that took me back.
