I got my DualShock 3 controller from Sony today. The new controller, which goes on sale in North America this week, will make my Sony games start rumbling ASAP.
But unboxing my DualShock 3 made me wonder about my PS3's Sixaxis controllers. Are they the old hotness?
A Sony rep tells me that the Sixaxis is indeed on the way out: "Sixaxis will no longer be offered after it's completely sold through at retail (likely by the summer timeframe)."
The original rumble-free motion-controller won't make it out of 2008. So seeya, Sixaxis. Hello, motion-sensitive, rumbling Dualshock 3.
Want to know which PS3 games are compatible with the new $55 controller? See below...
