  • Upcoming Resistance for PSP can be controlled with the PS3's SIXAXIS

    ot too long ago we asked how you would improve the PSP if given half a chance. One response, and a common thread on many a message board, was to add a second joystick (or “nub”), making the task of porting over PS2 games, and generally delivering a more console-like experience, all the more easy for developers. One such developer, Sony Bend, which developed the PSP Syphon Filter… Read More

  • Get ready to rumble: Dual Shock 3 hits stores in two weeks


    I bet nobody saw that headline coming. Well, it’s the end of an era. A short, unimportant era which will be called by Sony Execs “the era in which our controller kind of sucked.” I never had any trouble with my SIXAXIS, but I’ll be glad to have rumble now and I’m guessing they probably tweaked a few things on the inside too. If you have a SIXAXIS, you’re… Read More

  • Nyko upgrades its handy PS3 controller charger

  • New SIXAXIS Design Leaked?

    If you mosey on over to the Official Star Wars: Force Unleashed website, you’ll see a tidbit about info and a picture of the gamebox for the PS3 and Xbox 360. You can make out two things from this image: 1. It will be Xbox Live compatible
    2. Is that a re-designed SIXAXIS controller? The one with rumble features? It could be. The biggest giveaway is the swap the d-pad had with the… Read More

  • Kotaku Kidz: Suffer the Little PS3-Loving Children

    Kids + PS3 = Proof that We Over 25s are Dinosaurs. Brian Crecente’s kid picked up the PS3’s SIXAXIS controller and immediately figured it out. It took me four weeks to figure out those ketchup bottles with the big tops are supposed to go cap side down. Clips: My Son Masters the Sixaxis [Kotaku] Read More

  • Sony To Replace Dead SIXAXIS (If They Ever Die)

    Yesterday, it was revealed that the battery found inside the PS3 controller will not be replaceable. It is rechargable, but once the battery really runs out, you’ll have to pony up $49.99 for another one. Fanboys were angered, mobs raised their fists in anger. Then today comes along and we find that Sony plans to replace your old SIXAXIS (as it’s affectionally called) if it… Read More
