Just ordered one as I've been waiting for a price drop for ages! Have never seen them this cheap brand new.

Looks like they've got Blue and Red versions coming out soon, but I still prefer the white version :-D

Usually only a couple of minutes, but I'm not sure if you can use any of their voucher codes as this is classed as a 'sale' item. I tried to use a '£1.00 Off' voucher they sent to me this morning (World Cup Voucher) and it didn't work.

ok thanks

This is to be addressed in the pending firmware update to ]version 3.01.
Sony have referred to such issues as "isolated cases".

Re: Controller colours...

From a ]comment I posted a couple of days ago in the "]Official Sony DualShock 3 PS3 controller @ Amazon - £28.62 with free super saver delivery" thread...
---
Maybe the (second) price drop is due to the soon-to-be available two new colo[u]rs being added to the range of DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controllers in October this year:

Deep Red
Metallic Blue

To increase the range from the existing...

Piano Black
Ceramic White (& Black) - the "Stormtrooper"
Satin Silver (& Black) - to complement the Gun Metal Gr[e|a]y PS3 console issued for the release of "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots"

Although a UK resident can buy (locally) any DUALSHOCK 3 they want as long as it is Black.

Either way, the new price is (prices are) a fair drop from the initial Recommended Retail Price of £39.99 when the controllers were first released to the UK market (on 4 July 2008), having already been available in Japan from November 1997 & North America from May 1998 onwards.

My white ones are fine on my 2 ps3's both original 60gb models.

For those that have issues I,m sure Sony will fix it with another update. Why can' they just use little addon updates instead of the whole 150 meg+ :x
