Wal-Mart sells DualShock 3 for bargain pricing

With retailers nationwide selling the DualShock 3 for the suggested retail price of $54.99, it came as a surprise to watch Wal-Mart go against the grain and release the controller for the cellar price of $49.88 USD. On top of this low price also comes the low shipping cost of just .97-cents.
Currently this offer is only available to online shoppers and is not available in-store. There is no indication to whether or not the deal will make its way into their nationwide stores, but it wouldn't surprise us if it didn't. As many of you may recall, Amazon.com had sold the DualShock 3 as a preorder for $49.99 USD plus free shipping, but they didn't continue the trend after the item was released.
The release of the DS3 will quickly lead to the discontinuation of the Sixaxis as more games become rumble-compatible. Sony surprised its console owners by releasing the controller a week in advance in the United States.
If this deal happens to change or show up in any retail stores, we'll keep you up to date with that information.

I'm gonna wait on the DS3. Even $50 is too steep for me.

Well I just got 2 of them two days ago for $49.92 apiece in store. PSU facts aren't completely true. so i advise everyone who doesn't have one yet to pick one up at your local Walmart, ASAP. Hopefully you can get them for the same price.

I got one, I dig it. 55 bucks isn't that bad considerig the cost of a sixaxsis is 50,
so for 5 bucks I rumble and some weight. No problem!
