The PS3 Ultimate Combo Packs are well known for offering a a game and extra Dualshock 3 at $59.99, $5 more than a controller would cost on its own. Now, it looks as though more are on their way.
Good I need a new dualshock, my puppy chewed up the analog sticks on one of them. :-/ I'll be picking up one of these probably the Ratchet & Clank one
These are a really good deal, especially when you consider that a couple of them are $40 games.
... we won't be seeing these bundles here in Europe, where a controller still costs 60 EURO a piece(!)
Playing FPS games is a controller killer (especially the frustrating ones lol)
my main controller gave out on me during Arkham City...had to get a new white one for 60 bucks THIS deal...infintely great...
Awesome, i love these game/controller bundles.
What amazes me is how very little the cost of the controller has changed throughout the lifecycle of the PS3. Its obviously had several internal changes over the years and is being made a lot cheaper nowadays so why are we still be charged 2007 prices for an extra one?
My guess is that they probably have been selling at similar rates than when the PS3 came out. It's true that they would sell more controllers if they lowered prices but maybe Sony has projected that it's not significant enough to increase overall profits.
I DIY'd my controller I've had since 08 a few months ago; I won't be needing a new one anytime soon. On another note, they are extremely durable, well-built controllers! The times I've squeezed, hit or thrown my controller really raises question to why it is still working.
Love the blue controller. Plus Infamous if you don't have. Can't lose there
