Default Playstation 3 white controller

I was just looking around for Playstation 3 stuff. Came across the white controller for PS3, which is Japanese version. I like the look for white PS3 controller even though its just the same thing.

Would it affect anything if I had US version console system and a Japanese version controller?

I was gonna get white, but they look cheap really really quickly as they absorb oil and go brown.

From personal experience, I know the Japanese controller will work with no probs on the US PS3

When the first Dual Shocks released in Japan, I imported my two here to the States. They synced and worked right out of the package without any issues

I think the white is clean looking, better than xbox 360's white controller layout...

I looove my white DS3, Ive had it since it came out and its not brown or anything. Everyone always comments on it (not that it matters) and its nice to tell which controller is mine right away (I like having a personal one and ones for friends... which I care less about if they get dirty/greasy or messed up).

Does anyone have pics of a white with the black keypad? I reckon it would look cool, silver and the keypad would be even more awesome.

The Mr Clean Magic Eraser cleans up white and gray that has gone brown (works great on laptops too).

I personally like the look of the red and blue controllers.

I need to get one of these erasers. Apparently works wonders on soap scum in the shower too.

I have a silver DS3 and it looks pretty sweet. The white one does look a bit cheap imo.
