Sony Declines To Comment On Rumble Rumours

Sony has declined to comment on rumours that a new PlayStation 3 controller complete with rumble feature is currently in development.
Rumours began to emerge last week in a variety of Internet reports, including one on Innerbits.com. The site claimed that "two independent sources at Sony" said they have been "working on prototypes for several months".

The story is too old to be commented.

Isn't this like the worst kept secret ever? I don't really understand why they feel the need to deny or refuse to comment on things that are already in the public domain. Any thoughts? Damage control perhaps for when they don't deliver on time? Why don't they just tell us they're working on it. Give us a release date, and we'll just add a year to that like we always do.

Why? The only thing they don´t need right now is to slow down the sales .. if they would tell us now they are going to sell PS3s with rumble sixaxis like in october,why would anyone bother to buy PS3 in the meanwhile ?

But I wonder if the controller issue would really have a major impact on sales as they stand right now. I'm not sure that those of us who bought PS3's initially, wouldn't have bought them anyway even if we'd known there'd be a new controller coming along. I kind of suspected there would be a change when I bought mine, but I did buy it all the same. I find it hard to believe that anyone really believed Phil when he said - 'Rumble is last gen.', but I wasn't prepared to wait either way. Perhaps that's just me though. Hopefully everyone else is more level headed when it comes to spending their money.

Business.
Sony knows how to run Sony.

"Declining" to comment means that they are not ready to make an official announcement, expect E3 or shortly after to hear something.

Hence, why I do not work in public relations/marketing I suppose...

Does this rumble controller comes with KY?

Maddens Raiders3600d ago

this isn't really news is it now?

I knew sony would say this. I'm expecting an E3 announcement but then again they could wait till right before its released so people don't wait to buy.
