It's kinda cool, but on the other hand makes it look slightly cheap in my opinion... Though that's just me.

... it usually just looks cheap and ugly.

A friend just brought a very cool-looking official BLUE controller from Hong Kong though. Nice color that I haven't seen in Holland.

edit: This one...

I'll buy this when I buy a PS.S.S. I can't wait to see how cool it runs. I never turn off my xbox or ps3 so having the PlayStation super slim will be good. Sony is copying again with the word super which Nintendo started.

@hatsune

wait.... please tell me your kidding. Nintendo "started" the the word super?

@Yi-Long

we need a new article about the blue controller, and for each color ever released, this is so news worthy!!

I hpe the fix the springs on the trigger buttons - I have had 5 DS3 that I have had to replace the springs

lol i remember having the blue AND red transparent PS2 controllers. what i loved the most was after a few moments of rage playing shinobi and gran turismo you can see all the bits and pieces that broke from the inside. I messed up that controller so bad that every time you shake it it sounded like a maraca XD

They're cheap either way. A few drops and it's done

Oh_Yeah1829d ago

transparent electronics were a thing in the 90's.
transparent n64, gameboys, dreamcast/ n64 controllers. I remember even having a transparent house phone in my room as a kid.

I've been wanting a transparent dualshock3 controller for the longest.

ExCest1830d ago

Reminds me of my transparent N64 controllers.

Nostalgia power!

I was recently looking for a transparent red controller. I found that I had one for the PS2 (forgot about it) and it looks really good.

Jamzluminati1829d ago

Not sure how many of you know this, but if you were one of those who were lucky enough to get the PS3 during the 2006 Holiday season, the controllers were actually transparent. But if you purchased another controller it wasn't transparent. I noticed that when I got my extra controller. I was like, "wait, why can't I see through this one?"

hardcorehippiez1829d ago

nah the original six axis wasnt transparent it was translucent but yea they changed them when the dual shock 3 came out.

DirtyLary1829d ago

It's got that 3rd party look.

StraightPath1829d ago

cheap looking new model and a cheap looking and outdated trend controller to go along with it.

Oooo Hello ;) where is the NSFW tag......

Not bad. There isn't really much to a see through controller.

ziggurcat1830d ago

neat.

the old sixaxis controller (before the added vibration) was also semi-transparent, but it was a really subtle transparency.

yeah i had never noticed it until i was laying on my back with the controller in the air playing and i noticed the light kinda shining through it. lol
