New Third Party PS3 Controller Revealed

If the introduction of the DualShock 3 was not enough, there is now more to the PlayStation 3 controller saga. Thrustmaster, a company known for their 3rd Party video game peripherals have released what seems to be the ultimate PS3 controller.
The features for the controller are as followed:
  • 2.4 GHz Wireless Controller
  • 7 Progressive Axes, which is exclusive on all platforms
  • Optical Wheel with self-centring feature.
  • Dual Triggers which are progressive and programmable
  • Playable on the PS3, PS2, and PC platforms
  • 'Home' Button for the PS3
  • Fully Programmable as the mini-sticks, directional buttons, optical wheel and triggers can be fully swapped.
  • Internal Memory that stores all programmed button layouts, even when the controller is disconnected
  • Vibration feature on the PS2 with two vibration motors.

The controller seems like a nice addition to the DualShock 3, but it is doubted that this will be anything worthy of a purchase. There is no official price set for the controller or release date. However, it is unique and should be considered as a purchase later on down the road.
