Dualshock 3 Controller delayed in Europe!

306w 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.

310w ago - Speaking at the SCEE PlayStation Day in London yesterday, SCEE president David Reeves confirmed that DualShock 3 will be launching in Europe very soon.

"The DualShock 3 launch is imminent," he told us in answer to a remark we made on the fact a Sixaxis is included in the newly-announced European MGS4 bundle.

The Euro boss gave no other hint as to when we're specifically going to see the controller over here, or whether or not we've going to see it release before Metal Gear's launch on June 12.

PS3 Dualshock 3 controller Review

550°
314w ago - The wait is over: rumble is back on the PlayStation 3!

These new wireless controllers use a hybrid design, combining the motion sensor of the Sixaxis controller with the rumbling abilities of its predecessor, the PlayStation 2's DualShock 2.

Overall, the new DualShock 3 is a delight. It's slightly heavier than the Sixaxis, with a more sturdy, solid feel. The handgrips no longer flex when you squeeze them, and the black plastic is completely opaque (the Sixaxis used cheaper, transparent plastic).

So far, we see only two small gripes. For starters, the DualShock 3 does not appear to ship with a mini-USB cable; none was included in the retail box we received. Mini-USB cables are dirt-cheap these days, so that shouldn't present a big problem.

Secondly, the DualShock 3 sacrifices a bit of its "oomph" in the name of better battery life (and possibly not interfering with the integrated motion sensor). The DualShock 3 still pumps out a pleasing pulse sensation, but it does feel slightly weaker than the DualShock 2.

Aside from those nitpicks, the DualShock 3 is the controller Sony fans have longed for ever since the PlayStation 3 launched with its neutered Sixaxis. It does cost a bit more money -- $54.99 compared to the Sixaxis's $49.99.

But you might not have...
