Looking for a trust worthy online retailer for a PS3 control

by ZeroAX Fri Aug 13, 2010 6:52 pm

Hi

I'm looking for a trust worthy online retailer for a PS3 white ceramic Dual Shock 3 controller, from Japan. I've heard from other people in the forum that the Japanese Dual Shocks 3 are much better than what the rest of the world got.


So I want to order one. Problem is, the only retailer I know that has them (play asia) doesn't ship to Europe. So any ideas?

Woah, didn't even know those existed. So, if I may ask, what makes the Japanese dualshock 3's better than what the rest of the world got. I'm interested and might actually buy one since I've been planning on getting another one.

I'm not sure. I think it was Niode who told me that they are much better. I'm buying a white PS3 controller anyway, so I thought of buying the Japanese one instead.

Hmm, might as well I guess. Maybe you should get another racket member to buy it for you, then pay them back for it.

How is it better, would like to know? I remember my cousin opened up his ps1 (japanese) memory card and found out it was different then the ps1 american version.

I've always had good service & shipping speed from Play Asia (then again I'm not that far away from them). :roll:

So Japanese DS3s have tighter control in the analog sticks? Well, then, I think I'll just import a couple instead of buying the US versions.
