Silver Dual Shock 3
Sony today began officially selling a silver version of its Dual Shock 3 controller in the US. Previously only available in Japan, the color is the first official variant other than black in the country. It's functionally identical to the reference version and has the same Bluetooth, motion support and rumble as earlier models. It sells for $55 and should be available immediately.
The official news comes weeks after a white Dual Shock 3 was confirmed headed to North America through an accidental early sale of a version branded for Canada and the US and indirectly backs rumors of Sony launching a slim 120GB PS3 in late summer that, while likely to ship only in black, would be more likely to benefit from a new round of controllers.
