    I wonder how much later it will be in Australia compared to U.S? Maybe it's not long with Sony stuff, I'm just used to Nintendo.

    I thought with white, it would be easy to see difference between my Sixaxis that came with console (I know it says it on front), and it would be something different, because chances are, you will never be able to get white in Australia. My brother got a white PS2 controller from Japan and they never came out in Australia.

    @Bretts, How long do u think till u get that DS3?

    It shipped from California on the 13th, so it should be here Monday or Tuesday. I just need to check out the list of compatible games. I have Folklore so I can at least test it with that, but I really bought it for MGS4 and the newer games. Since it is only $10 more than a normal Sixaxis controller and I needed an extra controller for my brother anyway, I thought this would be the best option.

    EDIT: It came today.

    Everything is official. I like the added weight of the DS3 compared to SA controller. Now to test it out.

    Nice, I have the black one, I liked the ceramic white one too...I wish they would come out with a clear-blue one.

    How could they make a fake dual shock 3?

    Would white get dirty easily or anything? Finger prints etc.. would show up less on, wouldn't they?

    They can make fake ones (knock offs) in like China and stuff and then sell them at these little corner markets, but you won't find any of those online or any major Japanese retailer. If you've ever been to Mexico and see a lot of fake rolexs at these little shady markets. However, rest assured this won't happen to you.

    Cermaic White won't get dirty at all, no more than the Black.

    When did you download the demo? They pulled it out from PSN for a week because of bad bugs. That's the same problem I have been having with the first demo release.

    this is the new one. i downloaded it yesterday. i can get on servers but most people cancel their games before the match starts. ive played a few times and it is fun, but a pain to get into a game.

    Great game, but a horrible port. Supports EA's theory that games developed for the Playstation 3 first port easy to the Xbox, while games developed for the 360 first don't port so well to the PS3.

    I'm still on the fence about Rainbow Six Vegas 2, however, I do like the TF2 similar graphics they are going with. :toast:

    the ps3 eye is a pretty interesting gizmo. and is really kinda useless by itself, but a fun add-on if you are bored. the games are cheap and very trippy but get old quickly. i like that you can use it during burnout and game developers are starting to take its potential into greater account. we will see. my next purchase in a couple of weeks will be the bluetooth headset so that when i get vegas 2 i will be able to communicate.
