The DualShock 3 will replace the SixAxis Playstation 3 controller. Sony has realized that gamers wanted force feedback, which the SixAxis didn’t have. Dualshock 3 was released in November in Japan. The DualShock 3 controller will be available in the United States on April 15. The DualShock 3 will retail for $54.99, which is $5 more than the SixAxis controller.
The SixAxis will no longer be in production after it sells out through retail. Playstation 3 systems will now be shipping with DualShock 3 controllers.
