    Is there any chance we can get these for PC then? Or is that what you are getting at?

    It is mini USB to USB, so yes they will work on the PC but I don't know why you would buy them for PC use.

    They are not coming to US until Spring of 08'. This is the best oversea price I can find right now.

    Still a Sixaxis/Dualshock 3 controller with the same battery life as the regular controllers is well worth the investment. You get everything you wanted out of the Wii with Sixaxis, and all the godly rumble that the PS2 was famous for.

    Same here, but when do they get to the US? I really hope the rumble is going to make the controller heavier, the PS3's SIXAXIS controller now is too light, unlike the Xbox 360.

    Quick ?, can I charge the current controllers if I plug it in to the wall with a USB adapter? Like let's say I plug it in to an iPod wall charger, will it charge it? I just got a PS3 last night so yeah...n00b.

    A usb wall charger or a ipod charger works just fine. I use a usb charger that came with my blackberry.
