A post on the US PS Blog has invited fans to submit designs for a new line of coloured DualShock controllers. You can submit your idea or vote on others’ contributions here. So far RainbowShock 3 has the most votes in our in office poll, especially as a bunch of dudebros have downvoted it, but I’m the only one here so vote as your conscience dictates. Sony’s DualShock controllers have been made available in a wide variety of colours including pink, jungle green and metallic blue.

This is brilliant. An article on Yahoo! Finance about Christmas gifts has claimed that PS3′s pads must be replaced after running out of charge.
“It’s all fun and games until the battery dies,” said author Anne Kadet. “Unlike its competitors, which use replaceable AA batteries, the PS3′s remote control is glued shut. When the battery goes, Sony customers have to blow $55 on a new controller.”
You’re right, Anne. That really is a glaring design fault.
The frantic hole-digging continues: “Sony says there’s an ‘environmental benefit’ since gamers don’t have to toss their batteries on a regular basis, but Isidor Buchmann, president of battery-equipment maker Cadex Electronics, says captive batteries are becoming common because it’s cheaper for companies to eliminate the battery housing and hatch.”
Spectacular. Merry Christmas. Thanks, mart.

According to this MCV piece, Sony is considering suing over the use of a PlayStation controller in the “early death” Change4Life ad.
From the piece:
A source close to Sony revealed to MCV that the agency behind the ad, The Gate, had not contacted the platform holder to ask about using a controller that bears a close likeness to PlayStation’s pad.
The ad, part of a government campaign to get kids to be more active, showed a child sat on a sofa holding what looks to be a DualShock beside the words, “Risk an early death. Just do nothing”.

PlayStation’s DualShock controller is ten years old, apparently, and IGN’s written lots of words about it. If you’re a controller fan, it’s essential stuff. If you’re not, it’s not. Reasonably simple, to be honest.
