Red SIXAXIS light does Not Necessarily Mean Rumble

With the packshot of the new 80GB model of the PS3 sporting a picture of a SixAxis pad with the central PS button lit up in an attractive red hue, a lot of speculation has arisen over its meaning - including hopes that the light means it is a rumble-enabled controller.

allright the debug sixaxis would light up when it would be charged...
go to the PS3 tip section and look for my video of the new sixaxis.. and u will see that the controller is NOT(!) hooked up with a USB cable.. so it;s not charging..! so why is the red light lightin up..?????

I hope they don't glow. The lights on the top now are annoying enough.

you mean the 1,2,3,4 on the controller??? please don't say ur annoyed by that.

I kind of am. I designed my game room to be sealed off from light and any other light other than the Tv is annoying to me. It just distracts me. Plus the big red glowing light looks like something that should be on a cheap knock off controller and not on an official one.

I dopnt know what that button is for but it looks really kool with that red glow, bloody red! Cant wait for PS3 rumble enabled controllers.
