Considering the rumble is the only possible reason you'd pick up the DualShock 3, it's pretty underwhelming. Compared to the Xbox 360's rumble, which feels like a miniature horse bucking its way in the palm of your hands, the DualShock 3 feels more like a slightly agitated cockroach that's had one too many mochas. You can feel it, sure but in games like Resistance you really should feel like you're blasting away with a machinegun, instead of feeling like your cell phone just went off in your hands. I'd say the rumble is on par with the Wiimote's rumble, which is to say, pretty forgettable."
