DUALSHOCK 3 Launching in North America This Week

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced that the
DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller will be available at retailers nationwide
beginning this week for $54.99 (MSRP). DUALSHOCK 3 incorporates both the rumble
feature and motion sensing SIXAXIS™ technologies for a more realistic,
interactive and intuitive gaming experience on PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™)

DUALSHOCK 3 will enhance the gameplay experience on future PS3 titles,
including the highly-anticipated Gran Turismo™ 5 Prologue, the next
installment of the billion-dollar selling racing franchise, launching in two
weeks in North America. DUALSHOCK 3 will also bring the rumble feature to a
lineup of nearly 30 PS3 titles as well as compatible PS one® classics
already available. Some titles may require a software update, and users will be
prompted to download any updates upon starting the specific games. A complete
list of current titles compatible with DUALSHOCK 3 is copied below. This list
will also be available soon at http://us.playstation.com/.

DUALSHOCK 3 maintains the award-winning design and precise, responsive features
of PlayStation controllers along with the highly sensitive motion-control
SIXAXIS system. In June, a limited edition bundle including METAL GEAR
SOLID®4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS, an 80GB PS3 system, and one DUALSHOCK 3
controller will be available for $499.99 (MSRP).
