    1500 Yen = $12.75...though it should of been included within the system, its not a bad price....

    and i wonder if your PS1/PS2 saves that you add onto the HD will be able to work on the PS3's LiveArcade/Virtual Console (or whatever they call it) games.

    Good move making the controller with a rechargeable battery from the start.

    "Six Axis". That's hard to say.

    It's also one of those... things... you know... it's the same backwards as it is forwards... like "Race Car".

    Is that a Sony battery in there? I wonder if they will blow up like the Apple and Dell laptops. :p  But it is cool that they do recharge.

    Six Axis? Sounds like a terrorist organization to me. But then again, we've heard of weirder names.

    I'm looking at you, Cobra. :p 

    As for the controller, a good move for Sony that they'd put in the rechargeable battery.

    I wonder how much this pad will cost in the UK... if we follow typical US to UK pricing, $40 would usually translate to £40... and that would be a total rip off.

    I'm sorry, but it's a really stupid idea to name it after something like that, especially given what reviews have said about the motion sensor features.

    And naming it "the Axis" doesn't exactly bring about happy memories from the "History's Greatest Hits" collection.

    I hear there's already an increased interest in the Rhineland.
