The DualShock 3 hasn't had an official place to call its own. Until now.
When charging the controller, players typically just connect it to the PS3 via its controller cable and perhaps leave it on the floor or place it on the console or something.
Third party companies do have charging stand solutions. And this April, Sony will, too. The electronics giant is releasing an official charging stand on April 21 in Japan. It's able to charge two controllers and is priced at ¥2,480.
Oh, and Sony's also rolling out a new DualShock 3 colour on the same day — "Candy Blue". So there's that, too.
No word yet on a Western release.
