In the latest round of its continuing legal and PR battle against Sony to get its proprietary rumble effects into the PlayStation 3 console, Immersion Corporation has commissioned a provocative public poll into PlayStation 3 rumble.
I was standing next to a tank in GRAW last night it was cool. lol I also was playing Moto GP and i kicked ass because i could feel the bike. lol
Into adding rumble, no matter what the cost to Sony might be, There are however two winners here. Immersion (ofcourse) and the public who really do need rumble. Far more important than tilt - me thinks.
i hope the two companies settle this dispute soon, i dont care if rumble is gone but i will miss it in the ps3 games, i do think sony should get and intwin both rumble and tilt sensing together, cause i do think there lieing about how the two effect one another, but if they dont bring back rumble, tilt sensing will be kool and i will prolly forget about rumble
Yah some care about it, but personally it would'nt be of big a deal most make it out to be. But it does add richness to the experiance.
let's get real, immersion souly won't be a good enough reason not to get a PS3. BUT, not having it and many other good reasons of not getting a PS3 only adds up. For many it could be the last straw.
if you're basing your descicion to get a ps3 based on the lack of rumble feature, you need to question if you really wanted one in the first place...
no way, I'm just saying that for some people it could be the last straw. Not for me though I'm a lot different.
For some, Rumble is a must-have. Maybe not for Paul. This will just point to lost sales for Sony.
I personally think that people can live with out the vibration. But I think you are a liar if you say you do not want it. Vibration is what made so many games that much more immersive. There is too much to be lost with out this feature. I also see where the motion sensor is cool to but it really sucks and it seems like a way to ride the Wii line a little.
Who are you to say what I want and don't want? I can honestly say that I really don't want rumble, saves me the time it takes to turn the damn thing of in every game, and it's definitely not worth the risk of getting permanent damage in my hands when i get older
lil dude please, damage to your hands when you get older...first of all if you were that worried you wouldn't be doing what you're doing in your room when you think your parents are sleep. Secondly, tomorrow is promised to nobody. So stop foolin yourself you know you love rumble. Just admit.
lol, yeah you're right! It's not like i'd like to be able to play games when i get older, what were i thinking? oh wait... I do! I fail to see how masturbation could possibly be bad for me, but then again you're probably american so that might explain your opinion. And are u telling me that i may not live tomorrow so i shouln't be worried that my action have consequences? Hmm what should i do with this gun? What to do, what to do... P.S. i don't like rumble
Yeah im an American, and now that i know you are not that explains your logic. Now no rumble in games stink, your logic stinks. Now go wash your hands for we all know you've been making your own rumble.
I always wash my hands afterwards, and for ur interest it takes more than some kind of rumble movement to get me going, it's more of a shaking-the-ketchup-bottle movement... or something. Anyway, rumble is useless, get over it!
lol yo, i couldn't care less about you and your ketchup mimmicking. Or if you washed your nasty little hands or whatever you do by your self. all im saying is you love want and need rumble saying anything else then your lying to yourself not me. Now you get over it.
you're the one who brought it up, and i have the right to defend myself, don't i? For the last time, no! i definitely DO NOT care for rumble, how many times do i have to tell u that?
I believe this is Immersion's 15 minutes of fame.
No matter whay you guys think rumble is important, if it wasnt, then ps1 wouldnt have included it, and they wouldnt have included it in the ds2, even though you say you wont miss it, when you finally do play with the ps3 controller you will notice a difference.
Only shame less fan boys say they do not want this feature.
Rumble feature to me is not needed but definetly an added bonus, on the other hand I am happy that we now have a different way to use the controller, it's about time these console companines tried to give us something new. I don't know if I will miss the rumble til I get my PS3 but if motion sensors lives up to it's potential then rumble could become an afterthought. Only time will tell
Naw I think the motion sensors in the ps3 controller are gimmicky and completely unnessary which is evident considering it was a late add on by sony but nintendo did motion sensing correctly WITH RUMBLE.
how would you know anything about Sony's or nintendo's motions sensors.... YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED PS3 OR WII!!!??? Please save your so called "professional opinion" for after you actually use them. Both rumble and motion sensors are gimmicky, that doesn't mean that either one won't be something that gamers will have fun with. Personally I hope motion sensors brings something refreshing and new to how we play games, but I never said that "no rumble" was actually good.....
There's a massive difference to how motion sensing works in the Wii and Sony. You don't need to play them to know. Wii has done it in an excellent manner that'll knock spots of Sony and MS.
Sony decided to not go with it, which I think is a mistake. But I find it wierd that Immersion would be pushing an informal poll to try and egg Sony on. It's a done deal, Immersion. Pray that you get your royalties from the lawsuit.
Immersion sounds like a baby about the situation trying to poll people. Here are the questions: 1)I would definitely not purchase a PS3 without rumble. 2)I would be more likely to purchase an Xbox 360 with rumble. 3)I would be more likely to purchase a Wii with rumble. 4)I would buy a PS3 anyway, but I'd be disappointed [and] It would not affect my decision at all. Why would they think everybody will be disappointed they need to get a grip and move on. I buy systems if the games are good not because of rumble. Is having rumble in the controller a good thing? Yes. But I could live without it.
Agree with you on there.. If anyone needs to be shot, it's Immersion.
Sony messed up big when they decided to not to have rumble in the ps3 controller. I agree with paul that sonys fuk ups along with this could be the last straw on whether or not to get a ps3.
Come on let's all be serious please.... Is it a bad thing that PS3 will have no rumble, I think so. But adding motion sensors could turn out to be a very good thing. Let's not jump to conclusions just yet on a feature we have not used. Hopefully developers will find a way to incorporate this into new games and help bring on a new added feature to us gamers.
Damn, they sound way too full of themselves. They act like not having there rumble feature will detrimental to Sony’s health.
No rumble is a huge loss, saying any different would be lieing. It's simply not next-gen if the video world can't cross over into the physical world. You Sony fanboys are liers. Sports games, fighting games, shooters, games that use rumble to indicate health and future changes/applications to huds in games, get real. Not next-gen...
Its like this Rumble isn't a sattisfier if you have it But it is a dissatisfier if you don't have it. It's like an airconditioning on your car. If you didn't had it before, you won't miss it. If you once had it, you can't go without. I really think it is a miss. I would never buy a console without. It just adds things in games. How do you want to play a FPS and have to know you're getting hit? You're feeling it with rumble. Without rumble you've to make the screen flash red? Tell me guys. Anyone who says he doesn't need rumble. How are you going to notice in FPS that you get shot and on that way that it's not a sh*tty way?
the mart is right about the shooting thing...they will have to make like cod3 and bia differently without the rumble cause ps3 has to have some feaure to tell you your getting shot
that's what surround sound is for...haha.
