Import retailers are warning non-Japanese consumers that the DualShock 3, Sony's contrition controller
, will be in extremely limited supply when it goes on sale Nov. 11. Importers like Play Asia say they've already pre-sold
their expected supply. Sony obviously doesn't like import retailers
, but they should take it as a good sign that consumers are keen to import the new DualShock 3 controller before its spring release in the States and Europe early next year. Importers are allegedly charging about $80 USD (£40) for what will probably be $50 (assuming it's the same price as the Sixaxis when it comes across the ocean).
But, but, but why would you want to import
the DualShock 3 when the rumble won't work with many old games? Well, Resistance: Fall of Man
to accept rumble and we're
expecting hoping that other games
have rumble added onto them soon. We're not going to make any "rumble is last generation
" cracks because we're just happy Sony is bringing back the rumble. You really don't know what you've got till it's gone.
