    This is new to me. Are there other US/NA retail exclusive colors or limited versions of the Dualshock 3 that aren't part of a pack-in/aren't specific game themed?

    I don't think store specific. There was a number of colors/patterns that I'm sure were sold seperately. This is the only non-black PS3 controller I have so far. I have 2 six-axis, a used cracked DS3 from the 40GB PS3 I got, and a couple cheapo DS3s from the PStv bundurus.

    Knockoffs can use cheaper / fewer parts, so absolutely.

    I understand that. I never thought to weigh them though. That does seem like an easy/quick way to check.

    The A2 revision that came with my PSTV feels noticeably lighter than the earliest version with the brackets between the L/R triggers.

    Awesomely interesting post, thanks.

    Some Ebay sellers truly are the dregs of humanity.
