Every day. Every way. GreenDaily.

Today's 'LOL it's cheap for a reason' deal of the day


Really? Two PS3 controllers for only $29? What a deal!

Wait ... but they look like these monstrosities. Sure, you could take advantage of this deal, but what will your friends say when they come over to your home? Remember this: most of you have spent $600 on a machine that was built to look sexy. Let's not ruin it with some cheap looking peripherals, okay?

For the cheap and foolish: Available in red. And blue.

4. Actually this reminds me, how come no third party perphial maker is not trying to beat Dual Shock 3 to the market. Unless there is some kind license agreement that I don't know about it, I would think people like Mad Catz and Logitech would be all over this. Especially since the official ones are not do out until March.

Waz up wit dat?!?!?11

6. The only way I would buy a 3rd party controller is if the thumbsticks were staggered.

Wow lots of people are buying the Blue version.

7. Hey..is anyone looking for the PS3 Dual Shock 3 rumble controller? Well Play-asia is out.

But your in luck. www.japanvideogames.com is a store located in california that imports from japan. You must have local stores like this but i don't in my area. I ordered one DUAL SHOCK 3 (white). It's costing me almost $75 but it's worth it since i am buying Assassin's Creed, Uncharted, and HAZE. I have Warhawk, so the rumble will def make it great.

Only problem is I DO NOT HAVE A HDTV, nor can I afford one at the moment (i can, but i much rather help my parents pay some bills). So maybe you guys can find me a deal on HDTV real cheap?

Or maybe PS3fanboy can ask Sony to deliver me one?
PS3fanboy, you should have my email, i wrote it when posting this, can you please talk to Sony?...Thanks! :\

9. These peripherals just look so CREEPY... it looks like an alien staring you down. Weird design. creepy

Posted at 10:36PM on Oct 26th 2007 by John

10. Anyone know if these controllers work with PS2/PS1 games?

Posted at 3:37AM on Oct 27th 2007 by Zack

11. Sounds too good to be true @ T-P-M
wait it is lol. Thank you But EMPEREZ doesnt sound to "quality" like.

If Sony can't come thru, i'll just pay off my parents bills with them until we get settled into another state and more construction work picks up. Until then i guess i'll live on my tiny tube.

Thank You Again though for your find. I really do appreciate you looking for me. Take care and thank you again TPM

12. I got a RUMBLE DUAL SHOCK 3.

www.japanvideogames.com

You can order at the site, or walk into the store in california.

I don't have a HDTV to play my PS3 on though. Money is tied up with helping parents pay bills. Michigan has screwed over its people, so its a struggle.
Maybe PS3fanboy can talk to sony in sending me one for free? I was an Launch Date owner of PS1, PS2, PSP, and PS3. But times get hard..so i cant afford.

Please someone help me get a free PS3, it woulda made better sense if SONY gave one to US first takers. That woulda been nice. I play on a 12' Sharp TUBE BABY lol

but enough about being sad....

anyone looking for a Dual Shock 3...hit up

www.Japanvideogames.com before its too late

I actually heard it wasn't too bad, a damn site better that a 12" tube that's for sure. And hey, at that price you can't really argue....

If you want something better,but still budget I saw Costco has a 42" 1080P Magnavox on special for $999.99 S&H might be quite a bit though (it's online only) they do have a Visio 42" 1080P in store for $1099 which might work out better.

14. THANKS TPM...its ok..well shall see with XMAS around the corner.

It's ok. I have my eyes on a 73" DLP 1080p HDTV by Mitsubishi (they are known for quality tvs). It's only $3000 for this 73", which i know someone who can knock $600 off of that and its only about $2,400. Only problem is money. It's ok, we are moving soon, so I will get more construction jobs in florida, make enough money to pay my parents bills and buy a tv. I really appreciate you help though.

Thank you very much again.

Happy Holidays!

15. 73" nice! Your totally welcome, the main reason I know about those is cos I've been looking :) If your looking at that large have you thought about a HD projector? They have some nice 1080P ones now, that are about that.
