I believe they confirmed that the battery would be non-removable so it will probably be similar.
Shouldn't be much of an issue. I've never had to replace a battery in my PS3 controllers and I've had mine since about 4 months after launch.

I physically wore and replaced the PS3 controllers before I ever had a reason to replace a single battery. Can't imagine it would be any different here.

I've still got controllers from launch that work fine. I've had 6 controllers now (2 sixaxis and 4 DS3s) and never needed to replace one of the batteries.

Best playstation ever, with an awesome controller, streaming play, and seemingly better (way better) bluetooth capabilities. Plus a screen, still not completely sure of its capabilities until release day. I just know this will do way better than what happened with 360vPS3, because it will be released first, and with awesome exclusives, but as long as it is within range of not going over $400 I would be buying it release day or soon after.

This. If your analog sticks last longer than your battery then that's pretty impressive. I've always taken good care of my games and consoles and the PS3 battery always outlasted the analog sticks. If you don't have your controllers set to auto off (if you walk away from your game for 30 mins, the controller will turn off after 5 mins of no use) you should turn that on. Save battery life so you don't need a new battery before you need a whole new controller.

Can confirm the battery life for the PS3s as well, 4 Six axis all still holding a full charge with no noticeable degradation. Same with the 4 Dual Shock 3s that replaced them (my kids use the six axis for their console).

I"ve had to open up a few ps3 controllers before but never to replace a battery. Usually its something loose that makes the buttons not work right.

No one wants to buy 38927428937429837 AA batteries every year to use a controller. And yes thats an accurate number. Trust me, I'm a doctor.

I prefer the PS3 controller, over the 360 controller. I like the fact that the PS3 controller has the six axis/motion sensor on it, also it supports blutooth, and I dont have to buy batteries. Most of the time I can go almost a week without charging my controller. Usually for the controller to fully charge it can take about 1 hour. I also have 2 controllers from launch and 2 controllers that I bout 2 years after the ps3 was release. I never has any issue with the battery. Very smart move on Sony. Also the controller uses standard usb, so it is very easy to use pretty much any cord to charge it with.
