Rumbling SIXAXIS at developers

43 second read

Straight from

We can confirm that prototypes of the new rumble-enabled controllers have made their way to various Sony developers

There you go, they are coming but are still most probably a way away…

We are expecting an official announcement at Leipzig this year, I have been saying from the beginning that I would wait until the PS3 rumbles before picking one up. Now with a possible rumbling, cheaper PS3 available for Christmas things are looking positive.

Now all we need are some AAA games…

    let’s hope that developers are quick off the mark to release rumble patches for existing games. I’m sure owners of Motorstorm will be VERY grateful.

    I just hope that you don’t need to get a new PS3 for rumble,and you can simply go and buy the rumble controller and it will work on the all ready released PS3s.

    I want Sony to give me a voucher so I can trade in my Sixaxis for a rumble enabled controller, not really desiring to spend money on a THIRD controller simply for their arrogance.

    Yet you endorse MS charging people to buy a HDD for the new games that will come out?

  • Ruslan

    I dont. Its a person’s choice to buy a X360 with or without a HDD. Nobody is forcing him to tilt towards a Pro or Core unit is it? At least has a choice unlike slap-bang BR drive take it or leave it from Sony. Tell me which game uses it to full capacity for now and to what benefit? I have only seen the latest 2-3 movies actually use the BR disc to its full capacity as well. Time will tell if BR & HD-DVD arent another Betamax. 😉

    I just realized this is the rumble controller thread, nothing to say about that? If I have a friend who comes over to play Burnout 5 with rumble do I now have to dish out another R700 for two controllers coz of Sony’s intial blunder?

    And here I wondered who usually screws the consumer more, Sony or MS…
