In addition to PS3 intercoolers, dongles, guitars, HDMI cables and other shiny accessories we also spent some time with Nyko's new Sixaxis alternative, the Zero series controller. The design is a near mirror image of their PS2 version (check out our in-depth hardware review) but with a PS3 home button at the center with glowing goodness.
There's a lot to love here: the PS3 joystick comes with a rechargable battery pack, an alternate AA backup pack, 10 foot charger cable, and glowing dongle adapter. The most notable thing about the controller is its weight -- it's at least twice as heavy as Sixaxis which should appeal to gamers that found the stock controller to be too light.
Want one? Hit grandma up for a $50 in a few weeks. A similar controller is also coming to the 360 with the left analog and D-pad flipped; available in 3 finishes -- two tone black, silver and black, and Wii white. Check out the gallery below.
