As Sony ramps up for its November 11 release of the PlayStation 3 (PS3) gaming console, it's gone and named its wireless controller the tongue twisting, alphabet-soup-like SIXAXIS. Mkay, presumably they dubbed it that slips-off-the-tounge moniker because it can control things six ways, or in six directions, or axes (axises?). I get it.

According to our sharp-tongued yet pasty-faced gaming colleagues at Kotaku, the Bluetooth- and USB-compatible controller will be included in the box with the PS3, and will run for 30 hours on a charge. If you want to buy one separately, it will start selling on November 11 for $43.

How come you can buy it before you can buy a PS3? Weird!
