    PS3 SIXAXIS Controller Officially Discontinued

    In a not-so-surprising statement, a Sony representative confirmed today that SIXAXIS controller will officially be on its way out with the release of the force-feedback enabled DualShock 3 later this month.

    Sixaxis will no longer be offered after it's completely sold through at retail (likely by the summer timeframe).

    So if you absolutely don't care about rumble support, take this as a cue to stay on the lookout for clearance deals on the old SIXAXIS controller.

    Having the Dual Shock controllers for the PS3 is cool, but not hat big of a deal in my opinion. It might be time to stock up on some cheap SIXAXIS controllers.

    Yes the Dualshock three PS3 controllers are wireless and use Bluetooth technology.

    dualshock is cool, and is a good decision imo... but how soon before the game developers will implement it in their games?

    Most new games (post Dualshock launch) already support the rumble features of the Dualshock 3 controller for PS3. Even some older games have released updates to support the new feature, like Motorstorm.

    I don't think the "gimmick" of SIXAXIS was fully utilized, and some the games made it a chore instead of part of the natural control. DUALSHOCK on the other hand gives the game a "feel" either of impending or actual doom.
