You can forget your customised PlayStation 4 controllers – this ace crystal DualShock 3 is taking us back to a time when everything from Tamagotchis to floppy disks shipped in see-through shells. Coupled with today’s strange PocketStation trailer, it’s clear that SCEJ is feeling a spot of 90s nostalgia – and it’s hoping to counter that with the release of this peripheral on 19th December in Japan.

The input device will set local players back ¥5,500 ($55), and will be compatible with the PlayStation 3 and the upcoming PS Vita TV. With the manufacturer’s next generation system right around the corner, we’re probably going to pass on importing one of these – but it does further the rule that all electronics look better in transparent plastic.
