Wal-Mart on Wed. began offering online customers Sony Corp.'s Dualshock 3 controller for the Playstation 3 below the MSRP in the latest video game retail discounts.
Of course, the downside is, you actually have to give Wal-Mart money.
We at N4G like to whine about Sony and Microsoft being evil, but neither of them hold a candle to Wal-Mart.
55 bucks for a controller is BS. Six axis should have dropped to 45 and DS3 should have debuted at 50.
90% sure it's a mistake on walmarts part and the website will be updated to reflect the correct price. As has happened many times before, order when they cancel b!tch at them and get a $10 gift card. Thats what I usually do.
Walmart's evil is legendary. From their business practices to the way they treat their employees.
Ooooh the cooperations... *shakes in booties* j/k.
In order to have rechargeable batteries in the 360 controller u need to shell out like $15-20 extra bucks. And when u get the Wii remote, the nunchuck is extra...costing u $60 total. All three systems went up in price in their controllers...just like their games. It is the nature of new technology. $5 ain't that much.
Lol, rechargeable batteries are $2.50 a pair, $5 even with a charger.
I've been saving my plays through Heavenly Sword on Hell Mode and Uncharted on Crushing for when I get a Dualshock 3.
i think Walmart is goin to come out wit a next gen system that'll outshine the ps3, will and 360. Its goin to be called Your Wal-come.
Wal-Mart sells EVERYTHING below the MSRP. DUH!!! 0_o
Yeah I guess someone forgot about "rollback" and that freaking yellow happy face or whatever it is.
I try not to go into WalMart, at least limit it as much as I can. Not that I care if they are evil or not (I could care less, if it saves me money, I worry about ME!). It's just that, whatever is the worst people in your city, you can find a bunch of them at your local Wal Mart usually.
walmart big talk about rolling back prices give me 45.99 DS3 you be good with me
Far as i am concerned they should give them away and or trade them in for the cheap Sixaxis.
Good But this is Wal*Mart were talking about. I get to save $5 and contribute to Wal*Mart's EVIL doing, sweet! Yeah right I'd rather burn my money than give them a penny of it. I'll spend the extra $5 elsewhere and keep my dignity, thanks.
why dont you guys just return then sixaxis after you buy the dual shock3
You know I would have no problem doing that if Sony was the only one getting screwed in the deal. However, it would be Wal-Mart getting screwed instead because Sony won't accept it. It's not their fault Sony gave us the Sixaxis.
I've been waiting for something like this. MSRP should have been reduced to $49 anyways. They're selling some cheap at Amazon too, but from other amazon sellers.
But when get there and ask for one, the 65 year old working the electronics section doesn't know what you are talking about. Walmart is good for one thing, late night boredom
so very true. It took me 20 mins to get UT3 back when it came out because the guy in electronics didn't know what a PS3 was (I'm not even kidding) and had to call for someone else to help me.
so what if wal-mart sells less than MSRP? everything is cheaper at walmart, maybe by a couple of cents, or by a few dollars...dont complain about it, if you dont like it, then go to gamestop, and buy it and give sony its full support, sony is already rich, and dont you think it will do well with their exclusives/console?
You still gots to pay some tax though...but this is cheaper than the amazon.com deal. which is $54.79
but the walmart price is still the cheapest on the whole internet...They also sale the cheap sixaxis for $39.99
Also you got to remember everybody in the sun who has a PS3 or is going to get one will get a Dualshock 3 for GTAIV....
i will not be buyin into the Dualshock 3 for GTA IV or any of my games, That is untill i need a 2nd controller haha
Sony says you don't need rumble but since I need a second controller, I'll buy one. My 360 from 2006 came with rumble though.
Now everybody wants rumble ha ha ha.
