Dual Shock 3 Available Next Week, Sixaxis Euthanized

After a year and a half on the market, the PS3 is finally getting the rumble controller it should've been packaged with. Sony has shipped the DualShock 3 to retailers across the US, so the heavier, rumbly, more expensive controller should be available to purchase within days.

To no one's surprise, Sony has also announced that the now obsolete Sixaxis controller will no longer be produced after current stock is depleted sometime this summer.

Thankfully this also means that it will only be a matter of time before Sony stops unloading the outdated controllers on those purchasing new PS3 systems. The Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle coming in June will include a DS3, so sometime this summer standard systems should as well.
