Snag a DualShock 3 for $49.99
Want a DualShock 3 for less than its official MSRP when it comes out in the US?
Amazon has you covered. By pre-ordering a DualShock 3 controller at Amazon now, you'll get $5.00 taken off the recommended sales price of $54.99 USD. It's not a massive discount, but it's the best deal we could find, especially if you opt to use their free super saver shipping option.
Unlike its predecessor, the Sixaxis, the DualShock 3 will contain a vibration function. Sony initially dubbed the feature as "last generation" when it was announced the Sixaxis wouldn't contain the capability, but they've since had a complete reversal on their stance. Additionally, the DS3 analog sticks will have a smaller "dead zone," which will in turn result in more accurate input of small movements close to the center of the sticks. The DualShock 3 controller will launch in North America on April 15 alongside Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
We snagged one, did you?
