Dualshock 3 Wireless Controller Coming This Week

by Rainier on April 2, 2008 @ 12:40 p.m. PDT

The Dualshock 3 wireless controller will be available at North American retailers beginning this week for $54.99. Incorporating both the rumble feature and motion sensing SIXAXIS technologies for a more realistic, interactive and intuitive gaming experience, the Dualshock 3 replaces the SIXAXIS controller as its being phased out.

Dualshock 3 will enhance the gameplay experience on future PS3 titles, including the highly-anticipated Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the next installment of the billion-dollar selling racing franchise, launching in two weeks in North America. Dualshock 3 will also bring the rumble feature to a lineup of nearly 30 PS3 titles as well as compatible PS oneĀ® classics already available. Some titles may require a software update, and users will be prompted to download any updates upon starting the specific games

Dualshock 3 maintains the award-winning design and precise, responsive features of PlayStation controllers along with the highly sensitive motion-control SIXAXIS system. In June, a limited edition bundle including Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the PatriotsS, an 80GB PS3 system, and one Dualshock 3 controller will be available for $499.99 (MSRP).
