Now that legal arguments with Immersion are over and done with, Sony is finally making gamers everywhere happy by shipping out their wireless Dual Shock 3 controllersfor the PS3. Shipments are currently en route to retailers everywhere,and are slated to arrive on store shelves next week. The controllerswill feature all the original technology of their Sixaxis brethren,such as motion-sensing and Bluetooth capabilities, and will carry anMSRP of $54.99. After the current stock of Sixaxis controllers havebeen sold, no more will be made.  
From now on, the above image will be included on games which are ableto take advantage of the rumble feature. Sony has released a list ofthe games which will be compatible with the rumble feature, which isincluded below. Games with an asterisk after their titles will requirean update to be downloaded before they'll be able to work with thecontrollers, though:
Gamers also have the option of importing the controllers from sites like Play Asia and Renchiwith price tags set only a little higher than what US stores will beselling them for.  Of course, it doesn't make much sense to import thecontrollers for the sake of having them a little sooner than the restof domestic PS3 users, but if supplies are limited (as they were when first released in Asia) or a player wants their Dual Shock in a shade other than pitch black, foreign retailers might be the best option.
