The controller features the wireless design of the Sixaxis wireless controller, but also has rumble capabilities.
In the official press release David Reeves, President and CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe commented "We are delighted to confirm that DUALSHOCK 3 will be released in SCEE territories in early July. We hope this will add to the intense gaming experience for our fans, as we continue to evolve PS3, its software and its peripherals"
Almost all future PS3 releases will support DUALSHOCK 3, and the controller is already compatible with many existing PS3 titles (firmware upgrade 1.94 required).
Dualshock 3 is the only Bluetooth controller combining vibration function and SIXAXIS features.
It will be available in Europe on July 2nd, 2008 and will retail at approximately £32.95.
