The Sony PS3 Dual Shock 3 SIXAXIS Controller has been available for around about 2-3 weeks now but only in black. However now you are able to get it in white and silver.
yes, i haven't bought a Dual shock 3, now I can :) I wish they lanuch ps3 white color.
Had that white one since last November.
I imported my silver one a month or two ago. Its great, feels so much better than the sixaxis and with it silver I know which one to grab.....it looks cooler too.
Same here (since last november)
Yea imported a white one mid novemeber, looks and feels great, i hate having to switch back to my sixaixs when the battery is low on my DS3, glad some more people will be picken them up
Yea same here.. i've had a white one since nov. I dont know why everyone who wanted one didnt just import way back then. It was only $5 more expensive than it is now.
@violator.. hehe me too. i want a black one though. i might trade in my 2 sixaxis for a silver or black one.
bough a silver import in a Movie Trading Company store a while back. It was cheaper than the reg black in gamestop by like 10 bucks less too =D
now the xbot will be happy for its whiteness
Meh ill stick to black color
I've had a white DS3 for months.
But are these still imports? I want them to be released in the US. I really like that Silver one.
I imported a White Dualshock 3 controller way back in January from Play-asia and I've thought about getting a Silver Dualshock 3 to add to the collection.... and now that I think about it I don't even have a Black Dualshock 3 controller yet, just my White one.
The white one looks pretty sick.. I have a black one, but i like being diverse.
1 Black DS3, 1 White DS3, 1 Silver DS3 and an original SIXAXIS controller. :)
I got mine in Brazil 03 months ago.
I find it amusing that so many people have import controllers when it was Sony who said Rumble was last gen and 90% of Sony fans agreed. Oh but the day they release a rumble controller its time to import one at a higher price, and you guys wonder why non Sony owners dont take you seriously.
I think you are exaggerating a little when you say 90% of PS3 owners agreed with that statement. The main motivation for Sony in releasing the DualShock 3 was all the PS3 owners that missed the rumble function from the PS2 and PSone controllers and who wanted the function back. So they released the DS3 that comes with the same Sixaxis motion tech, and with improved rumble tech. Sony heard the cries of its consumers and brought the function back for those PS3 owners who wanted it. Plain and simple.
I'd love a Silver one, but I already have 2 in black so until I need another controller I'll save my wallet the trouble. Silver definitely looks better than white though.
Black is better. :)
The gold-ish one is the best.
They had just a white regular SIXAXIS. I'm not a fan of rumble and love the weight reduction that came when they took it out. Damn the fanboys for forcing rumble back on gaming!
well u can always turn the rumble functionality off anytime for all games. As for the wight, well u cant win em all. imo the added weight makes the controller feel less cheap and fragile
Are these imports or in the US? If so I hope they get this silver one out, I will buy a PS3 then, until then Im holding tight waiting.
So where is the white PS3 they promised at launch?
Do you have a quote from Ken or Kaz or Phil or anyone promising a white PS3 at launch?
Sitting in a shop in Japan.
white import since dec 07
... for only 27 euro or something a piece. European prices are insane. ...and it's incredible that the White PS3 isnt being released in Europe, as it looks sexy as hell.
Nah, I already lost money, since Sony did not launch the rumble (dualshock) with the system. I will keep my black dual shock controller.
Have had mine since it launched in Japan, got it in preparation for Uncharted which came out weeks later. Got one off eBay for the same price as a normal sixaxis (£30), was very lucky with the timing since most were going for £40-£50. I have 2 sixaxis controllers and the 1 White DS3. I was thinking of selling my sixaxis ones and buying 2 DS3s; 1 Black, 1 Silver. I suppose I need 4 really for MP splitscreen but they're £30 each and that's a lot of money. I do like the lightness of the original sixaxis though. I know many people say they feel fragile but to me it's so light you almost forget you're holding it. The DS3 is better though due to the return of the rumble, it does add a bit more to games that use it well.
I imported a white one last month too, except it wasn't a PS3 controller it was actually a line of blow. Any takers?
Ive had a white DS3 for a couple of months and i live in Europe. When i got it i noticed that i really didnt miss rumble as much as i thought....
