I can just picture my 8-year old tripping over a 20-foot USB cable and pulling my brand new PS3 off on to the floor.
I'm just REALLY used to having my controllers sitting on the side table with the other remotes. Luckily the official Sony charging station is available on Amazon and isn't outrageously expensive.
