The SIXAXIS will now rumble – confirmed

36 second read

Finally one of the worst kept secrets in the gaming industry has been confirmed.

As of November the SIXAXIS in Japan will start rumbling and from Autumn next year our PS3’s will start shipping with a rumbling SIXAXIS. I have said right from the beginning that this was a vitally important feature that Sony should have implemented in the beginning.

What I really don’t understand though is why Autumn next year? Why not November as well so they can catch this holiday? Oh well at least we know it is coming.

    So will i get a voucher for my sixaxis to be freely replaced with the rumble one or should I dish out another R350 coz of Sony’s stupidity?

    November next year such that they can get rid of their current surplus, surely. It’s about time this gets announced. I’ve been holding out on getting a second controller for this very reason and now that it’s confirmed, it’s sounds like a candidate for a Tronix shipment 🙂 . Tronix ftw…oh, and METAL GEEEEAAAAAR 😀 !

    R350!?! you’re friggin hopeful, the non rumble SIXAXIS is already about R500.

    And fyi, it not a rumble-AXIS, I believe it’s offically the “dualshock 3”.
