Many Sony PlayStation 3 owners have felt something was missing from their gaming experience on the next-gen gaming console. For all of its advanced graphics and multimedia capabilities, the PlayStation 3 lacked a seemingly basic function.
Come to PAPA...DS3 and Warhawk = Awesome.
+1 Picked up another one yesterday at gamestop to go with the white ds3 I already had, figured I would give it some rest. If you haven't played warhawk with a ds3 you are missing half the experience.
I really don't get it. I never thoguht "I need rumble". I don't want it even now.
Feel the same way about it. I am ok with sixaxis, I will get the rumble when it launches. I have been gaming without it and it does not REALLY impact my gaming experience too much.
i didnt really miss rumble but now im really looking forward to getting a ds3
ya, most of the time i dont even pay attention to the rumble but the reason i want it is because the sixaxis controller feels really light and i have a feeling if i squeeze too hard it will break. thats why i want dual shock 3
They should have split the sixaxis in 2 like the wiimote or splitfish. Then make only the left side tilt sensitive. That is the biggest flaw with the sixaxis in my opinion. Its tiring and inaccurate having to twist both wrists in one direction while trying to pressing the face buttons. Sure they would have taken some heat from nintendo fans but if they were serious about making the tilt sensing a real feature for future games they needed to do this.
When I use the SIXAXIS for driving in Warhawk I tilt the whole controller up like a steering wheel. When I'm flying a Warhawk I tilt the controller down so I'm mimicking the plane's stance. The controller is fine it's just how you use it what matters.
As for rumble I'm fine with the controller with no rumble I'd rather have something else to go along with SIXAXIS.
i personally hat the motion sensing idea. whn i got my ps3 i was so excited bout using it on warhawk. when i got warhawk i found the motion sensing hard to control so i went to analog sticks. when i got my wii i thought it wud be fun and it was ... for 1 day. the other days motion sensing became a hassle and my arm was sore the next day from swinging so hard in wii sports
but im broke and planning on buying GT 5 p and GTA4 thats a bill right there need another job freekin 55 dollars my good ness
Sony should appologise for being so slow and should give free Dual shock as replacement of old controler.
Damn $54.99!!!! That's alot of money for one function I really don't care about. I have a surround sound system and that immerses me enough in my games that a little rumble in my hands isn't going to do anything.
No mention of the broken triggers buttons? Halfway there, Sony.. Halfway there.. Not to mention EU gamers being shafted left and right :(
it don't work with alot of games like sport games and others so I aint to put out the money just for some rumble feature all stick with the sixais controller. anyways if you dont know how to spell ps3 why did you get one in the first calling it a ds3 you freaking retards.
Well you know what, when Sony first said it I did not believe them. But after buying 2 Dualshock 3s this weekend I came the the realization that I did infact NOT miss the rumble function that was absent from the previous six axis controllers. This has nothing to do with the quality of the Dualshock 3 just more with the fact that rumble has not been all that cool since N64 came out with the rumble pack and we where all playing Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. Yeh back when Rare made good games. That was when? Like 1996. I cant remember, its been THAT long. Not that I wont take rumble, Hell I bought two more controllers, I just dont need it, or care if its not there.
Not entirely just yet.
>> L2/R2 trigger slippage - have to buy aftermarket add-on just to fix this problem...
>> Ergonomically unfriendly with "adult" size hands - buttons, sticks all bunched-up. Seems Sony needs to build another one to accomodate us average adults with a bigger sized DualShock3.
My wish was to have it packaged in when i got my console. So doesnt fill my wish.
At long last we have the controller that should have shipped in the beginning. Gee, so much for the idea that rumble and SIXAXIS couldn't co-exist. Right, Phil? Oh, that's right, you're gone now.
