The Xbox 360 controller could be heading for an upgrade with new bells and whistles after Immersion Technologies showed off its new rumble feature.
This may very well be an awesome feature in 360 games. Wouldn't mind some moe info though!
Something like this could be good for games like Fight Night. When a jab would be soft compared to a Haymaker on the rumble feel.
I like the sound of improved rumbling! I love the way the force-feedback draws you into the game and lets you know when you're hit and when trouble is coming... with these new features I can definitely see where ti could draw you even further into the game! I'd much rather have that than the ability to wave my controller around.
The next NO RUMBLE blow to the Sony delaystation.
Damn that must hurt
aww, i thought they were going to put some bells and whistles on the pad. that would have been nice. It would make more noise when I throw it as Sony fans.
That article wasn't very good or informative. A new rumble pack is nice, but is it anything to get excited about? Not really. Rumble packs already rumble a little for little things and rumble a lot for big things. However, I'm glad Microsoft sees that rumble is way better than no rumble.
Next, we need controllers that heat up and cool down, smell like petunias or sweaty men in different games, and taste like a nice hamburger.
i'll pass on the sweaty men.
but a hamburger would be good.
yeah a hamburger would be nice right about now.
So thats the real reason Sony went without rumble in the PS3. Microsoft owns a big piece of the stock. Interesting. I love rumble in games. It really does draw you in. A good example is Condemed...its already a scary game but rumble really ads to the experience.
Hopefully Sony has something up there sleeves, cause if microsoft improves the rumble feature on the 360 controller, all Sony has to offer with their controller is 6 degress of motion. really, they shouldnt have fought with Immersion, cause that could have cost Sony their chance for making to ultimate gaming controller.
I applaud MS for their proactive thinking and actions in gaming, not relying on gimmicks and things. Im sure the new controller would be sweet, and they are reallllly making the sony controller look like a joke, im saying this not to start a flame war but because it really does seem that way to me.
This is ONLY MY OPINION- I love the 360's controller. I feel like a pimp when its in my hands. Its not to big like the last xbox controller and its not to small like the girly Dual Shock controller( you gotta have girl hands to like that 1) I would like to see MS improve the rumble feature and like someone already said in intense games like Condemned the rumble feature is awsome it makes it more intense!!!
Hell yeah I love the controller as is, but improvements can never hurt, and Condemned, eerily good, like F.E.A.R. played demo yesterday for the PC, shared the living shi* outta me, freakiest game I have ever seen, people appearing and dissapering, bloody ceilings and people walking on them towards you and than dissapearing...one part makes you walk up and down one hall 3 times and every time it scares you differently
ehhhh, well you could see a better rumble in a special edition. But that wouldn't be anytime soon.
They should call Microsoft Microphony knowing that thier phony in every way.
