Default PS3 Peripherals Announced

http://ps3.ign.com/articles/736/736936p1.html

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6159208.html







First up, it was revealed that spare wireless controllers--now officially dubbed Sixaxis controllers in a nod to their motion-sensing capabilities--will go on sale next to the console November 11 at a cost of 5,000 yen (about $42) each. It will also have a 30-hour battery life, according to Sony. A memory card adapter, suitable for reading PlayStation and PlayStation 2 memory cards, will also be released on launch day for 1,500 yen (around $12).

The latest remaning information revolving around the console will be revealed at a press conference Oct 19th in San Francisco.

Sony also has the most horrible remotes from an ergonomics standpoint.

The prices of the peripherals seem competitive. Let's hope it will prompt Microsoft to drop the price on theirs.

Changing the name of the controller is something that had to be done since now it's "shockless" (pun intended ), although I think it has more to do with the attemp to push the motion sensing technology.

Wow, Im suprised at the pricing... Thats pretty cheap compared to Nintendo's prices. The Memory Card adapter is cheap aswell, I honestly thought they were going to take advantage of it and price it at $40 aswell.

I honestly never cared for the remotes since well I never had problems using the controller... its not like I will be focusing on movie playback with the console.
