Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has told VideoGamer.com today that a February 1 release date for the DualShock 3 PS3 controller is not confirmed. The new controller, which brings back the rumble missing in the Sixaxis pad, is listed on UK retailer DVD.co.uk, with a February 1 release date.
"We haven't had any release date confirmed at the moment," said a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson. "Retailers regularly make up release dates to get pre-orders and gauge interest etc."
The DualShock 3 was released in Japan back in November 2007, with the new rumble-equipped peripheral pencilled in for a spring launch across North America and Europe.
