Puru Puru! DUALSHOCK 3 Launches in North America this week

Sony sends word that the rumbleriffic, all caps-loving DUALSHOCK 3 controller for the PlayStation 3 will be landing on the shelves of North American retailers this week.

For only $54.99, you get all the motion sensing of the SIXAXIS as well as the rumble you know and love from the PlayStation 2 days. Of course, they'd like to remind you that their new contoller works fine and rumbles hard in the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, which launches in about two weeks. 

There's about 30 PS3 titles that support the vibration feature. All of the old PS one titles already work. You may find that a software update is required for some games, and Sony says that you'll be prompted to download this update after starting these titles.

Also, the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle is packed with a DUALSHOCK 3, though that does nothing for current PS3 owners.  

What about you? Are you picking up a couple of DUALSHOCK 3 controllers this week? Did you already import one or two? What are you doing with your old ones?

Hit the jump to see the list of rumble-supported PS3 titles.
