Sony DualShock 3 Charger JapanSome new additions to the DualShock 3 family will be arriving on April 21, 2011 in Japan. While these new members aren’t exactly necessary or required, it is nice to have a wider selection of PS3 equipment. That way, you’re absolutely prepared. You never know – there could come a time when a blue DualShock 3 controller or charging station could make a huge impact on your life.

The cheaper of the two items is a DualShock 3 Charging Station for two DualShock 3 controllers. It’s black, sleek, comfortably holds the two controllers at once and will cost ¥2,480 (~$30). You just plug the charging station into an outlet, press the two charger adapters onto the tops of the controllers you want to charge and you’re set.

The more expensive is the Candy Blue DualShock 3 wireless controller. It’s ¥5,500 (~$67), the standard price of a DualShock in Japan. Suddenly, paying $54.99 for a DualShock 3 here doesn’t seem so bad! It’s identical to every other DualShock 3 out there, except the casing is cerulean blue instead of black.

The PS3 and PS3 accessories are region-free. So if that Candy Blue DualShock 3 is exactly what you need to tie your living room together, you can get it and rest assured that it will work with your system, whether you bought it in Japan, the US or even Europe. The same goes for the charging station, though you’ll need to get an outlet adapter if you decide to grab it and you live in Europe. I’d wait on the charging station though – something like that might get released worldwide.
