Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong has provided a first look at their upcoming first-party transparent Slate Grey DualShock 3 controller for the Playstation 3.
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... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
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?
@hatsune you are quite the troll I'll give you that...
@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
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.
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.
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?"
nah the original six axis wasnt transparent it was translucent but yea they changed them when the dual shock 3 came out.
It's got that 3rd party look.
cheap looking new model and a cheap looking and outdated trend controller to go along with it.
DAT, PCB BOARD...
Oooo Hello ;) where is the NSFW tag...... Not bad. There isn't really much to a see through controller.
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
It's about time they brought this model back.
When are they going to announce the winner of the DS3 design contest from last month? I hope this isn't it, because I don't remember seeing people suggest/vote for this design.
I could see a modder putting sum LED lights in it to make it even more appelng
sony should release a ps3 with the same case to match it!
Nice. Reminds me of my transparent purple Gameboy Color. Gotta get myself one of these.
they sure seem to be wasting money on old stuff right now... let's see some new stuff!!!
I always hated transparent consoles (they look horrible, those yucky N64s and GBs) but this look pretty nice.
It still looks like a really well made knockoff. Like the old fake madkatz controllers or something. It's not terrible though, except for the placement and positioning of the analog sticks....:-)
OPINIONS! Also, placement and positioning have more or less the same definition. Didn't need both (In my opinion. Yay, more opinions!).
The Madcatz Ghost Recon controller is cooler imo. Very nice controller, better quality than before. http://img.game.co.uk/ml2/2...
im so sick of japan getting all the good stuff, the new slim ps3 in white and now a see threw remote, damn im upset
is it for ps4? no? meh..
looks cheap like the new model PS3, Ill pass, not impressed.
i like it.. i already have to controllers tho.. When one of em gets worn out, ill buy this one for sure
I have a PS2 one.
looks beautiful.. wan't!
No matter the color, the thumbsticks on Dualshocks are so cheap this generation. I've had four controllers and the sticks always become loose and after a while they won't snap back into position. My Dualshocks 2's were much sturdier in that regard. Anyone else had this experience?
I have a PS2 one I want
the look gets me all nostalgic for the PS1 and ps2 for some reason. DO WANT
