Gamestop has started taking pre-orders for an exclusive new Metallic Gold Dual Shock 3 PS3 controller.

Before you ask; no there isn't anything special about it, other than that it's gold. Well, that's not entirely true... It'll burn a $54.99-sized hole in your wallet, as opposed to a standard Dual Shock 3 controller, which costs $44.99.

What can I say, gold plastic is expensive... The metallic gold Dual Shock 3 controller will be available in Gamestops everywhere starting October 9th.
