Today at E3, a SCEA employee confirmed that the Playstation 3 controller SIXAXIS, will now rumble. This comes after the civil suit made by Immersion for the patent found in the Sony controllers.
Finally, my controller joysticks have been broken because I play Resistance so much, but i have been holding the off for the rumble controller. Im buying this just like everyone else is and also the Splitfish FX.
frag fx is great. my only complaint is that turning 180 takes a little longer with a mouse...head shots for days though.
Thanks for posting on the Frag FX - I've been wondering about if it's all it's cracked up to be.
i want to feel the power of rumble again lol
it's not rumble it's "touchsense technology" lol
I want to try it out and see how it's different from rumble
...it pretty safe to say rumble is coming to PS3.
surprised this wasn't mentioned during their press conference today, I guess they're saving it for TGS perhaps?
I think so. While Sony might have a few more surprises this coming TGS, I seriously do hope so(please let there be new XIII & Versus XIII info/videos).
cool...I need a new controller....I stepped on my quite a few times now....Im not kind of person who is good with wireless....
This is nice! Another reason to buy two more controllers! Then I just have to make 2 new friends to play with...
Step 1: Lower the price. DONE
Step 2: Add rumble. DONE
Step 3: Release good games.
Almost ready to buy a PS3.
If you wanna play the best versions of Oblivion, Rainbow Six: Vegas, and The Darkness...or just Motorstorm, R:FOM, or any of the good downloadable games...then...GET A FRICKIN' PS3!!! Stop waiting!
Checklist for MS:
- create a lackluster console: CHECK
- create ONE game that somehow gets big, regardless of how much better many other games in the genre are: CHECK
- make the same system with prettier graphics: CHECK
- pay off other companies to get exclusive games and content and look like a bunch of deuschebags to people that RESPECT gaming: CHECK
- watch the Killzone 2 trailer...over...and over...and over...: STILL CHECKING
Now, all they have to do is create something innovative...and I'll consider buying something they make.
Man I totally appreciate your enthusiasm - I think the PS3 is a killer piece of hardware, and I think there are some really good games and a couple killer ones. But I can understand why people would want to wait for this holiday season when a whole mess of awesome PS3 exclusives come out. Me, I just couldn't resist Resistance (Insomniac FTW!) so it was launch for me. I think the PS3 can speak for itself, there's no need to proselytize people - they know it's great, they just wanna play Ratchet and it's not out yet or some such. Just look how the price drop spiked sales - loads of people (probably PS2 owners) were just waiting to pounce as soon as the price came down. Remember "it's a marathon, not a sprint"... or whatever :)
I hope it's true. I thought we'd hear something at the Press Conference, but maybe they're keeping their cards close to their chest as it were. I'm totally buying 2 if they come out. Then we won't have to fight over controllers as much when playing Calling All Cars!
@9.1 - I think that Microsoft and Nintendo could have TouchSense if they really wanted, unless Sony has some sort of exclusivity deal - which I don't think Immersion would go for. Remember that Microsoft and Nintendo both "license" Immersion's haptic technology - so did they pass on TouchSense? Who knows. Until we have real confirmation from Sony everything's just speculation.
It will have next gen Touchsense...something Microsoft and Nintendo will not get anytime soon. Maybe they will get a timmed exclusive license to use touchsense in a controller.
This is about the only thing they did not announce was the rumble sixaxis....
WHEN, come on Sony, give us a date please!.
I really don't like that it keeps being called rumble. If rumble is all that it is i dont even care i want force feedback when i play a flight game and use the sixaxis when i turn i want to feel the controller get heavier on one side. when im playing a fps when i shoot the gun i want the aiming anolog stick to kick back into my thumb like a recoil. when i turn a corner in gt i want the anolog stick to get harder to push as the corners get sharper. this would be next gen a controller simply vibrating
does not do anything that is why sony said it is last gen it is. rumble is last gen force feedback is this gen.
All good points, and a bubble for the Spike avatar!
Make Lair the first game to use rumble, release the controller at the same time.
And both will sell like a Wii with a side order of [email protected]
After E3, I don't think it's even possible.
Every day it gets better as Sony twists the knife further into Mart's gut.
Excellent news - I buy a few!!!
when they said u guys didnt have rumble everyone was dissing it saying it was an old feature and pushing the sixaxis bullsh*t now u hear rumble is coming back to ps and all of a sudden u guys love rumble again
no you are wrong! some ppl wanted rumble, so didnt want it. and the ppl who wanted it, speak out now, but ppl who are not interested, dont speak, so its only your impression, than everyone wants the rumble again. for me its not important. but if its a next gen rumble and is used in kz2 then i will buy it!
Will this new controller come out w/ both the 60gb and the 80gb?
I almost bought a ps3 to sit next to my 360 when I seen that display, but Sony hasnt released a vga cable like Microsoft has with the 360.
