288w ago - According to toy shop Bartsmit, the highly anticipated Dualshock 3 controller won't be out in Europe until 1st July.
If thats the case, then MGS4 fans may be extremely disappointed with the news, as the contender for game of the year is probably one of the best excuses to shell out for one.
The controller offers rumble (for supported games) along with improved buttons and unit weight. It's been out in America and Japanese territories for a few months now and over 30 games support it already.
For those desperate for one however, importing from the US or Japan seems to be the best option at the moment, and it isn't too expensive either.
When we here a solid release date for Europe, you will be the first to know.

When it was thought that they may not arrive here until September I just had to have one before then. So I ordered one from an Amazon.co.uk reseller at the cost of £33 delivered, 2 days later a brand new usa dualchock 3 arrived on my doormat.
I never really thought that I missed the rumble feature either but after using it, I quickly ordered another 2 controllers.
GTA4 just doesn't feel the same without it now, & as for MGS4, it will be a must have. My advice is just import one. Today.
