DualShock 3 £23.98 at Base.com

8y, 4m agoFound 8 years, 4 months ago
The DualShock 3 wireless controller for the PlayStation 3 system provides the most intuitive game play experience with pressure sensitive buttons and the inclusion of the highly sensitive Sixaxis motion sensing technology. Each hit, crash and explosion is more realistic when the user feels the rumble right in the palm of their hand. It can even detect natural movements for real-time and high precision interactive play, acting as a natural extension of the user's body. The DualShock 3 wireless controller utilises Bluetooth technology for wireless gameplay and the controller's USB cable to seamlessly and automatically charge the controller through the hardware.

voted hot,

This really is a much better controller than the pitiful sixaxis. It's heavier, more sturdy, the analog sticks feel better and more precise. However, like most rumble, you get used to it and don't notice it. :p

It was this price a few days ago .....here's the origianl thread :

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/222255/sony-playstation-3-dualshock-3-cont/

Might have to go for one before it goes out of stock again ! :thumbsup:

The cheapest Sixaxis i have seen is Argos for £19.99....but for £4 more i may as well get the Dualshock 3 from here ! :thumbsup:

Yep i love my xbox 360 controller and i think what makes it good is weight and good controls
You barely realise rumble is on until you controller battery starts to run out and you dont feel in the game anymore

The six axis had good controls/buttons but was too light
Be nice to see what it feels like to use in comparison

360 future release is pretty dim - no point getting one really. No good upcoming exclusives.

Mine has finally been dispatched now:) Forgot I has used a discount voucher back when I preordered it so it stands at £17.99 including P&P:-D. When it arrives, I will compared it to my Jap DS3 and see if the rumble is weaker. Wouldn't surprise me if it is though.

Without rumble it is the same as the sixaxis - with rumble it said to be about half.

Fallout 3 isn't 360 exclusive, Viva Pinata isn't really a game you'd want to pay for, maybe rent.

Killzone 2, Resistance 2, LittleBig planet are the exclusives I can remember off the top of my head. Is GTA DLC coming out this year, I haven't heard anything about it for a while.

Of course there are a lot of games coming out for both consoles.
