Pros Slightly more heft, battery life still great
Cons 5 more dollars, L2/R2 buttons carry over their weirdness from the SIXAXIS
Summary I've had one of these controllers since November 2007 (Japanese model can be purchased for equal or less on ebaY).
I just wanted to correct David Carnoy (again) about the non-user-replaceable battery. You CAN change it. The Dual Shock 3 has screws on the back unlike an iPod. Also there are how-to directions in the manual a few pages from the how-to on replacing the HDD. Granted, I'm not exactly sure what kind of battery goes into the Dual Shock, but the fact remains you can still change it.

Pros Good feel to it and adds to gameplay, especially Warhawk
Cons A little pricey
Summary Gamestop had this a bit earlier than some other stores, just picked it up today and I really like it. After trying it with a few games I find it really adds to the gameplay. Mainly I tested it on Warhawk and Resistance Fall of Man. The only thing I wonder is how varied, nuanced and strong the vibration is compared to some games I've played in the past on say an Xbox 360, maybe its the same but I don't have a system to test it side by side, but maybe I need something with more of a plot to it that uses the feedback to add to the movie like feel (like a Dead Rising type of game). But its got a good weight to it, and though a little pricey if you need an extra controller anyway this is a good buy all in all. Happy I got it.
