DualShock 3 Price and Release Date Announced
If you can't wait and want your controller now, feel free to run to eBay or Play-Asia.com and score yourself an import model, which will play flawlessly on your American/NTSC or European/PAL system. It is still a two and a half month wait, so if you don't mind spending an extra $5 to get your controller early (they can be had on eBay for $65 shipped), I'd say go for it. That said, Sony has announced that the DualShock 3 will retail for a punchy $54.99 - factor in taxes and you're spending close to $60.
It may be pricey, but it is a really nice and sturdy controller; it's weight certainly helps it feel better than the SixAxis. No word on whether or not Sony will also bring us the Ivory White DualShock 3 (pictured above) that Japan currently has, as well.
