Rumble is subtly effective, especially on racing games, and is one of those features that you tend to miss when not there. So today's release has got to be good news for PS3 owners right?
Is COD 4 the only game that does not support rumble, or are there more?
you know thats a very good question. or how many dev's will go back a patch existing games to use the controller.
from what i can remember... uncharted, motorstorm, MGS4, COD4, i think GTAIV and Resistance too.. but there are a lot more since devs have released patches to their games Edit: btw... HELL YEA its worth it...im planning on buying a DS3 soon... because to tell the truth to play games without rumble is pretty dull... I've been playing games since the PS1 with rumble and it really adds to the experience.
lots of past games support dualshock,
I had mine since march and if you play Gran Turismo it is a must have.
Uncharted, MGS4 and Resistance have rumble support. I'm pretty positive GTAIV does, but can't comment on Motorstorm :) The only game I can think of that's worth mentioning that doesn't have rumble is COD4. I can't remember playing any other game that doesn't support it.
@solidt... theres a bundle @ GAME which is a DS3 + GT5p for £50 which is a pretty good deal @Rama yea i read that those games have it.. although i was sure that MGS4 had it because of the psycho mantis easter egg...but i already knew it before the game came out since kojima said he could add rumble in the game but i though COD4 would have rumble... that sucks... anyway + bubbles 4 u @disagreer what the hell man... care to tell me why you disagreed??
cod 4 is the only major game not supporting the d3 every other retail game does and most of the psn games too.
What a stupid question, of course it's worth it.
Agreed, but it is something they should have had at launch. Also it really sucked that the EU was the last to get the contorller, especially since they are the largest proponent for the PS3 outside it's originating country.
yes it is, i have been waiting for that controler since and it is finally in europe, why sony gave it to us so late is still a mystry but the still grought it to europe..il be picking 2 up when i get my cash.
resistance became a whole new game. i had already finished it then went back with my dualshock (play-asia import last winter) and it was such a different experience. going forward all games will support it and quite a few already released have been patched. buy it as a second controller or (like i did) sell your original controller(s) and buy a dualshock or two to replace them.
Strange, there's someone in the comments section there complaining about the R2 spring breaking on his imported DS3, the same thing has happened to one of my imported controllers. Dodgy controller batch?
My R2 spring broke too, on an important controller... how strange. I was able to sort it out though :) I just bought a new DS3 from Game and then exchanged it the next day with my imported model.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the only other game (that I know of) that doesn't support the Dualshock 3. Maybe Jericho too, but I haven't played that again to find out.
I got mine with a good discount from a friend who's an assistant manager at a store, so I can't complain about the £40 price (as I got it for just under £30). At £40, it is a bit on the pricey side, it should be closer to £30 in my opinion, but if you need a new controller, its still worth it. Why though are some people complaining about having to sync the pad with the usb cable, you only do that once, then you never have to do it again. And second, some people are complaining about the pad not turning it self off to conserve battery power. If you press and hold the PS button, you have the option to turn off the controller, and when ever you turn off the PS3, the controller automatically turns it self off anyway, so what the problem. At the end of the day, its nice to have the feature back, (shame legal problems caused it to not be implemented in the first place), oh well, C'est la vie.
Worth It Or Not, Im Gonna Get It, I Miss My Rumble - Wait Till My PreciouSsSs Finds Out Its Gettin A New Controller
lol, now that was just one of the funniest comments i've seen around here.
Two reasons... 1) It rumbles. - Duh. 2) It never looses connection like the SIXAXIS did. The BT signal in the SIXAXIS was weak while the DS3 seems to be much improved.
The DS3 has crappy support, like anything ps3... I've played a lot of the games that support the DS3 and noticed that if you are on a mounted Gun or a Gun with a lot of Ammo the rumble will stop after about 15-20 sec. .. For me every game needs the rumble feel it add so much to the Games....
If it's not worth it then people complained and moaned (in a more site friendly term) for absolutely nothing. I personally think it's great. Those who tried to use the lack of one earlier as some sort of bullet point as to why their console of choice was better probably aren't too happy about it's release. Those who complained about it not dropping in their respective region shouldn't have a reason to complain about it, and should be proving why it's worth it.
I think i would rather buy a new game imo.
Wait for the "Transformers Controller", now that will be worth it.
who is the hater that even says a stupid remark like that.your not gaming unless you own a DS3.EVERY game that has it is so much better it puts you right in the middle of the action.PLAY B3YOND waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaay B3YOND!!!!
Metal Gear is great with rumble and so is UnCHARTED
It's worth the 60$ but I feel Sony should have some sort of trade it Program going, the first controller crap, and for them to say that they couldn't put both in a controller was another lie... Funny part was Modder's had this done about 1 month after the controller came out.. sony should have just said we are being Sued or we didn't want to make are own rumble ... All in all buy it
I'm very Happy, for not buying Ps3 till now. I'm waiting for 65nm RSX&CELL equipped Ps3s + DualShock3 included packs...
I thought rumble was last gen Sony?? Caught lying yet again, what a despicable company. Sony should be retrofitting their garbage sixaxis controllers for FREE with rumble for those who were suckered into buying a PS3.
I prefer the lighter version of the PS3 controller, without the rumble.. If you want rumble just shake the controller yourself, lol ? "who were suckered into buying a PS3. " PS3 is a greatest thing that could have happened over the years.. Generally speaking the PlayStation brand is the leader in worlds video game market. SONY delivers HIGH quality hardware, just like the BRAVIA TVs. It would never release a piece of sh1t that will brake down in just a few minutes after opening the box. I see so much fuking jealousy these days, its starting to make me laugh how xbox 360 owners cant get the kind of games that PS3 is getting. I own both consoles, when that 2.40 FW wasnt out yet i was kind of in the middle between the 2 consoles but now im definetely on the PS3s side. There is much more to come.
the rumble returned because we wanted! we got in-game messaging because we wanted! sony listen to its consumer, and they do whatever they can to deliver whatever we want! even if they need to lie.
'$990m Bill for Xbox Red Ring of Death' ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D (Think that's 8 words, i just can't stop Laughing!!!) ;-D
You wanna tell me how you can lie about an opinion? jackass, and thats suckered into buying a 360,it getting RRoD and then burning your house down with the giant brick of a power cord, epic fail
So far so good, I hope the DS3 is built to a higher standard than the Sixaxis like these reviews say. My Sixaxis controllers are both in the same state that my PS2 controllers took 5 years worth of use to degrade to! Cheap crap!
£34.99 + free delivery @ PLAY.COM so not too bad of a price .
Yes Rumble is definitely worth it. One of the features I used to miss when playing my 360 then playing the PS3.
DS3 for MGS4 is totally worth it.
i am not spending £40 pounds for a controler no way in hell its bad enough that the game are 45 but the controler as well naaaa ill pass and stick 2 just 1
Shopto (got mine there) and play are £34.99, Amazon is £29.99!!! wish i'd bought mine there now lol
I will buy a DS3 eventually, primarily as I need a second controller but also because I would like a heavier pad (the SIXAXIS feels a little too flimsy for me, seems to twist in my hands). As for the cost, well £40 is a lot but if you price a 360 pad with a rechargeable battery or a Wiimote and Nunchuck you will also be spending close on £40. Peripherals in general are overpriced (see the 360 HDDs and wifi as prime examples); its such a shame that this generation is very much lacking in quality 3rd party alternatives unlike in past times. A pad costs pennies to make but the cost subsidises the loss that is make on consoles themselves, its a terrible catch 22 situation. Thinking about it though, a I wonder if the high cost of pads now (I paid £20 for a DS1 10 years back) goes some way to explain why so few games feature same console multiplayer anymore, online is so much cheaper in comparison!
if you play MGS4, its a must have.
Is it worth it? Yes. I've had one for a while (Japanese import) and it's pretty sweet.
MGS4 + DS3 = Worth it
i think 50 dollars is too much. i'm fine without rumble. if they want to drop price to 30-35 bucks; then maybe......but 50 is outrageous.
It's totally worth it.
thanks for the ds3 you pricks,,, shudda had this a loooooong time ago
but I alreayd have 2 controllers and to buy a 3rd is kind of a waste. If I could trade like 30 dollars and my sixaxis I do it. If not ima wait till 1 of my controllers break to get a DS3.
plain and simple. if you want rumble, buy it, if you dont want rumble, dont buy it, how [email protected] hard is that to figure out? people try to make sh!t out of nothing.
Had to wait for the ds3 to be release before getting MGS4, which was really tough.
