    More news along with the MGS4 release date...

    http://kotaku.com/360931/dualshock-3-dated-for-us



    We have more word from retailer conference Destination PlayStation: the DualShock 3—you know, that DualShock we've been waiting for since the PS3's launch—has gotten a US release date.

    Set to launch April 15th for $54.99, it's slated to coincide with the release of GT5 Prologue. Oh yes, feel those engines roar through your controller and make your SIXAXIS-wielding friends envious...like they're just playing a video game or something.

    I'm more curious if Sony will put the Dualshock in the Playstation 3s instead of the SIXAXIS.

    They're really good, nice weight and the rumble is a godsend but the price is a rip off to be honest... I got mine on eBay for a hell of a lot less than what they're stating there. At exchange rates it probably cost around $40

    Just picked one up. I can tell already I will love it because of the weight. I am going to try it on Warhawk tonight.

    How the Heck Does Call of Duty 4 not have Dualshock?? Isn't it like the number one game for the PS3?

    They can always give us a patch later. No big deal.

    When asked about it a few months ago, IW said they had no current plans. But that was a while ago, so things could have changed. I think they were more focused on getting patches for their server issues, making DLC and in game XMB support (which they still cant release since Sony hasnt included it in any firmware updates)

    You can import the white one off of Playasia. I know Japan also has a silver one. I dont think there are current plans on doing colors across the spectrum

    Are they compatible with American Systems? It says its for japan only. (that may seem like a stupid question so if it is I apologize.)

    Hmm.. Sweet. I picked my DS3 up today and played a little Devil may cry 4 with it. Its nice I like the weight as opposed to the regular Sixaxis. I like that Metal finish DS3 they have on playasia.
