    Where, oh where can I buy a PS3 wireless controller?

    OH has treated us/himself as a surprise so I have ordered my games from Lovefilm but cannot for the life of me find another controller!

    Cant find any in Argos and Play, Amazon, Shopto, whsmith, etc etc dont have any stock either.

    I don't want to pay a ridiculously extortionate amount and really would prefer the official version - was hoping someone on here may be able to help.

    Thanks!

    Anywhere?

    You pay more for the DS3 (vibration, feedback).

    Thanks for the er... help, but I cant find one online? :? (unless i want to pay £34.95 plus p+p from toysrus)

    Not after the vibrating one, just the standard one

    The standard Sixaxis is out of production which would explain stock shortages.

    bit dear at the moment.

    one of the best current deals is £32.99 for an official PS3 dualshock 3 - in satin silver colour(via 365 games).] Found here

    £35 is the best price on a black one - at this very minute:)

    Maybe open a FS/FT thread for a new/used one?

    Thank you :thumbsup:

    Was just reading up, is it a 'dual shock' one i am getting with the ps3 or just a normal one?

    If it's an 80gb or 160gb ps3 it will be a DS3.

    Otherwise standard Sixaxis.

    depends when the console was manufactured/which pack you got, should tell you if it's a Dualshock 3 controller on the console packaging.

    One thing: I went through to the checkout (after I added one to my basket), it now says out of stock on the checkout page section.

    Zavvi have the dualshock 3 in black for £29.99.

    Am I silly to want the matching black one, or is the silver one worth getting?

    Hows stock at Zavvi? Been meaning to get DS3 for a while.

    Thought I would have a go and it let me order it, saying that it is temporarily OOS - think I will cancel it and just go and buy it from Argos tomorrow unless anything better comes up in the meantime :thumbsup:

    Upto you surely - I got the white dualshock 3, just cos I like it.

    The controller's obviously not wired so mines never anywhere near my black ps3 console - so it never clashes.

    I got rid of my 2 sixaxis controller's a while back on here. Prefer to be a lil bit different. It's only a controller anyway! :lol:

    Obviously my main concern :giggle:

    Realising that it looks like I need a dualshock one and considering the delay in postage at this time of year, I think my best bet is just to get it from Argos for £34 including quidco
