There's kind of a dearth of arcade-style joysticks available for the PS3 right now, and there aren't necessarily many fighting games worth playing on the console either. Nevertheless, the XCM Dominator will exist soon.

Then again, female avatars have had a tough time in Sony's PlayStation Home service as of late—maybe the killer combos this thing will help create can help them out of a jam. No price or availability just yet, and that's definitely a render.

The other addition is this curious $40 XCM Cross Battle Adapter hub that allows PS3 owners to synch up their wired Xbox 360 controllers and play games that way. It's a better controller, sure, but there has to be some button mapping issues, no?

Nice joystick, but there are only a few games (if any) to use it with.

It amazes me that the PS3 is lagging behind the XBox in sales. The PS3 is a better, more powerful console. But I Sony has a history of good products dominated by inferior ones (e.g., Betamax).
