I guess it's not really that shocking, right? People are just getting ready to rumble, so to speak.
I will say that the price is right on this Amazon pre-order item. You can nab a DualShock 3 for $49.99 with free shipping. That's saving buyers about $10, seeing as how that price point is $5 less than the MSRP. Perhaps that's why it ranks number two in the videogames division of Amazon.com, just right behind Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
We're still about one full month away from the DualShock 3's release. I didn't think it would make that big of a buzz (excuse the pun) at launch, but this proves me wrong.
PS3 owners, have you already jumped on the vibration bandwagon?
On a side note, I love how Amazon recommended a "Better Together" deal containing the DS3 and Persona 3: Fes for $79.98. It's like they know me!
