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™) system.

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

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).
