    Play-Asia has the Dual Shock 3 Wireless Controller for PS3 Black and Ceramic White for $59.9 + $6 shipping = ~$65 shipped.

    These are Japan version but reportedly also work on US version of PS3.

    You can buy Dual Shock 3 from Play-Asia ~$65 shipped.

    check the links.

    Black Dual Shock 3

    Ceramic White Dual Shock 3

    If you want to import one its a great deal.

    Do you want it now or can you wait till April ish? I've had mine for a while, I love it, but I wouldnt pay to import one if I didn't get mine for the low price of free.

    They will more than likely cost the same as regular controllers do now, they will phase out the standard non DS3 controllers when the DS3 is released here.

    paid €50 off ebay for one including shipping. The normal six-axis is around the same price here so it wasnt too painful. I just wish I went with black instead of white though.

    So you wanna trade? Each person pays shipping, it would probably be a wash :) I'll ship first if you find trust an issue :p

    Nah, I was thinking of using it as an excuse / justification to trade in my 40GB and get a White ceramic PS3 when they are launched finally....

    You wouldn't want to take my money spending excuse away from me would you ? :D (like I need an excuse sat typing on a macbook air ;) )

    That's rather expensive. I should start selling them for $55! :D

    I love how on the site it says free delivery in Japan! Spend 6500 yen and get free delivery or.... Go to the store and buy one for 5000. Hmm....
