Dual Shock Controller Getting All Blinged Out In October

Ooooooh...gold.

There are quite a few available colors for the Dual Shock 3 controller right now, but the coolest - or perhaps the gaudiest - will become available exclusively at GameStop.

Yep, it's the Metallic Gold controller and it's coming to stores in October (the 9th, to be exact). Me, I really want a dark forest green one, but I'm happy with silver and blue right now. As for our European friends, the gold PS3 controller will also come your way, and you're getting it this month, too...lucky bastards. It'll be released as a "limited edition." Check out the European blog post if you're interested.

We really need to get some new hardware colors, though. What's the point of having all these great shades for accessories if we can't match it up with our systems, damnit?

I'm happy with my hot rod red but yeah it's pretty lame we don't get colored systems. It costs a fortune to have a custom paint job so screw that.

"I like... gooooooooooold."

what i want to know is what the hell is up with the green controllers. i found one in the store finally and the back of it is black while the front is green. what the hell? all the rest are one color why is this one different? it ruined it for me. i want it full green. all i have is black and the digi camo. the digi camo looks really cool.

Gold is cool and all but not for a controller since there is no gold PS3's. I'm rocking the silver with a while silicone sleeve over.

Wasn't there a gold one piece ps3 that was exclusive to Japan?

Anyways, I'm good with my ff13 lightning edition dualshock 3 controller for games that don't have too much button smashing. Then I have the regular black one just for that. Which will most likely get replaced once it has run its' course.

Who gives a shit, it's a collectable only.

What part about gold matches gaming/tv setup anyway.

Black or maybe Silver will match with todays electronics

one thing ill never understand about $ony!
they will release every colour under the rainbow for their controllers, but when it comes to systems there restricted.
why?
imagine how much money they would of made if they had that gun metal grey MGS4 bundle worldwide?
or a special bundle for GOW3, GT5, R&C ACIT, infamous, resistance, theres been so many awesome franchises they could of done wacky consoles for!
i would of killed for a LE ps3 with airbrush of kratos ripping helios head clean off!

I hate to say anything good about M$, but Sony really needs to look at how M$ does their bundles & then start stepping up with their own PS3 colorized AAA game bundles too!

Or at least frigging skin them with the game's logo & some sort of nice game silhouette.

I could imagine a colorful Bundle with Juliet swinging her chainsaw across the PS3 &leaving behind green zombie blood dripping out of the faked gouge marks

That would be cool, but I think if they were going to replace the blood it would be pink :)
