A photo of a white DualShock 3 controller purchased in a Florida store has appeared, despite Sony’s claims that no such controller exists in The States.
The image, sent to Joystiq sister site PS3 Fanboy by a reader known simply as “Henry,” offers solid evidence in the form of the controller itself alongside a receipt detailing the transaction.
Representatives from Sony however, say “We have no plans to release a white Dualshock 3.”
While it is theoretically possible that the image is a cleverly constructed Photoshop job designed to troll the entirety of PS3 Fanboy’s reading audience, I’m inclined to believe Henry, if only for the futility of crafting such a ruse.
Plus, given Sony’s tendency to release a wide range of multicolored PlayStation peripherals as their console’s lifespan runs down, it seems almost certain that a white DualShock 3 would eventually rear its ivory head.
Now the only question is why would anyone actually want a white DS 3. Not only does it clash horribly with Sony’s console, it totally ruins the mysterious, dark color scheme employed by the system.
