PlayThree.net review the DualShock 3 controller for the PlayStation 3. Includes a comparison with the SIXAXIS and a playtest with various PS3, PS2, and PS1 titles.
I've had mine for about a week now and it certainly does make things better... Motorstorm is actually a game and playable now. The tracks in which they were stupid enough to make them too dark and no headlights are navigatable if only because when you're about to hit something solid the controller vibrates like crazy now. So you're warned in advance of how rough the track you're on really is. Resistance was a totally different experience and I feel bad for anyone who doesn't ahve rumble yet... cause they're handicapped. When I'm shot now online... I easily have more sense of what I'm doing than someone who doesn't have it. you'll know what I mean if and when you get one.
i want one so bad...i think play-asia sells em way to expensive....this is bird$hit, i don't see why Sony can't release it in NA & Europe this year...
Motorstorm has always been a "game", rumble or no rumble. I like the idea of rumble returning, but don't think it "makes" the game. I'll beat you without it any day. Let's go, you know the name. 8D
Its rare for a Sony boy to admit Sony made a mistake good on you Next gen gaming isnt next gen without rumble...enjoy it PS3 owners...games will all of a sudden be so much better
I think the problem was limited quantities, so I guess they decided to concentrate them on just a few territories instead of spreading them out really thin.
I've had mine for about a week as well... If nothing else, they will be worth it for the more solid feel compared to the original SixAxis... Ratchet and Uncharted both rumble, as well as every PS2 game I've tried in my PS3. And it seems like any demo released after the 1.94 firmware update has rumble enabled. Now if only Infinity Ward would put out a rumble patch for CoD4... :-|
From my experience with ps2 is that like any feature, its only good when used properly. Some games were terible with it, while others were great. I think having the rumble back is a blessing and a curse. Is there a way to turn it off other than in-game options?
Yes, when you push the PS home button, there's a rumble on/off option. Or you can play with the sixaxis and never have to worry about rumble :).
I love the light controller so I will still keep mines but I will get a rumble. I dont really care for it but I will get one.
I'm importing the dualshock 3 second play-asia.com gets it back in stock.
Play-asia.com is in stock on both the Black and Ceramic White Dualshock 3 controllers. If you want one order it now! Got mine last week and loving it! JD
$70 bucks on playaisa.com Too much, that blows.
Play-asia.com is cheaper than Japanvideogames.com ($74.99+shipping) and Yesasia.com ($79.99+shipping). When the controller hits North Amreica expect it to be at least $60. So for importing an item and having it months before it is available here I think it is not that expensive. I was fortunate to pre-order at Play-Asia.com and only paid $59.99 US + shipping. Then they upped the price like everyone else. JD
Gonna help you all out here.... ( RE-XMA-SAA ) Type that code into this http://www.play-asia.com/pa... and you'll get it for 64 bucks, shipping included. You can also get a white one. Just when you check out make sure you put that code in the box that it applies in.
Thanks for the tip, just ordered a white one. They'll probably retail for $60 over here in the spring anyway, so the extra $15 isn't a big deal to get it half a year early.
Thanks but it still charged me shipping. No worries, I was on the fence until your post, just ordered one.
thanks bro...it's as much as a game it can't get better then that or can it.... EDIT:Whoops, misread it..still, its a better deal.
You saved me money. Just ordered my Ceramic White DS3! ^_^ I'll wait till it's domestic to get the second one (black).
Thanks Gamesblow. I just ordered one using the code as well. I did have to pay for shipping but still only 10-15 more then what they will retail for in the states. Bubble 4 you.
Thanks for the coupon. I just ordered white ceramic for myself. Bubble for your efforts.
+1 from me. Amazing what $5 off will do. Still $70 for me but I saw it won't be in NA until May.. well worth $20 to get it 6 months early.
Well it helped me 100% finish Motorstorm ! AWESOME!!!
nice one. i still yet to finish the remaining 70% despite owning the game since release date. lol
ordered mine friday and sould get it sometime this week. For anyone else who got one how long did it take to ship because this wait is killing me.
The Dualshock 3 might not see an official release in the West until May! I paid the equivalent of £5 more than a standard SIXAXIS. Why wait over half a year?! You can be playing Uncharted:DF with rumble this Christmas! I ordered mine from YesAsia.com. With standard shipping, I got it in the UK just 1 week after despatch. both Black & White are in stock. Free P&P / S&H http://global.yesasia.com/e... http://global.yesasia.com/e... all the best people!
Hopefully i'll get mine this week!;-P (ordered it from yesasia.com) Cant wait! Games seem empty with out it!:-/
I just got mine yesterday. Does anyone realize that the controller really does shake on different sides of the controller depending on where the action takes place? For example on Uncharted, while you're pulling the chains to open the first door at the beginning while you're in the cave with Sully, the controller shakes on the left side on the controller. On the part where you have to shoot the exploding barrel for the column to fall down, it falls to the right of you and that's where you feel most of the vibration. Also, on GT5 it rumbles more depending on which way you're turning. I love it...
I just ordered mine. bubble for you gamesblow for the coupon. $70.00 shipped. I can't wait!
I thought "RUMBLE" was... "SO LAST-GEN"..... now that it is out....."ITS NEEDED" pathetic little SONY fanboys...very pathetic!!
Yes...just like an HDMI port
What the hell do you care?
That joke was so last gen i mean come on everytime one of you bring it up it just shines a light on Microsoft and their claims that HDMI isn't needed nor are bigger HDD's. Just kill that mess it only causes everyone to laugh at Microsoft in the end my friend
Oh yeah and Microshit is any better. MS said an HDMI port wasn't needed for this generation and then they bring out an Elite model with an HDMI port and a larger hard drive (which MS also had said that a larger hard drive wasn't needed, just buy another 20gig and swap them out) STFU Fullyloaded
