Sony Japan Unveil New Color PS3 Dualshock 3 Controller & Charging Dock

By Updated on

We have some exciting news for PlayStation 3 owners who love sticking to Sony products. The Japanese giants have announced two new official PS3 accessories which will be greatly appreciated. Japan is to get a Dualshock 3 charging dock and a new Candy Blue Dualshock 3 controller.

The new charging station means no more wires straying around the room. It is capable of charging two PS3 controllers at the same time. It comes as a stand with two charging attachments that fit to the back of the Dualshock 3 or Sixaxis controller which are needed for connecting the controllers to the stand. It also comes with an AC adapter so the two USB ports on the PS3 console remain free.

It comes with the official Sony PlayStation logo and in the original black color so as to match and complete the console set. Slashgear say the dock will sell for ¥2,480 in Japan.

The other accessory is a regular Dualshock 3 controller just in a different color, also available in Japan for ¥5,500, which is the standard rate. Both these accessories will begin shipping April 21st with no word yet on availability across the globe.

What do you think of these accessories? Do you prefer to stick with official Sony products or does it not matter to you? Let us know below.
