It looks like those red and blue Playstation 3 controllers may be arriving a bit earlier than expected.

The two controllers were said to be arriving sometime in October when we caught a gander at them, but a photo from Gamestop seems to show that the two will be hitting on Sept. 22.

And just in case you forgot, Sept. 22 is two days before the official start of the Tokyo Game Show. Sounds like perfect timing for a press conference.

DISCUSSION

I bought a black DS3 when they were first released, and it was a great purchase. My Sixaxis has always been weird. It occasionally "strokes out" and weird things happen like the character you're controlling will spin around in circles madly or pull to the left.

That means whenever someone comes over, one person is stuck with the crappy/semi-defective ultra lightweight Sixaxis.

Methinks perhaps the blue DS3 is in order soon- it's not exactly the same as my beloved clear blue DS2, but it's close enough.

I love me a blue Dualshock. It's totally irrational. I don't even care.
