1. Sony got the idea for force feedback (rumble) in their controllers from Nintendo. TRUE
Nintendo released the first Rumble Pak in July of 1997, bundled with Star Fox 64. It was a clunky looking, battery-driven gizmo that connected to the memory card slot on the N64’s controller. It meant you couldn’t use a memory card and a Rumble Pak at the same time (unless you had a third party Rumble Pak with a built-in memory card), but most considered that for the level of immersion it offered that this was a fair trade. In an article written by IGN’s Levi Buchanan to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the Rumble Pak, he described the device as “an industry standard within a single generation”. It wasn’t until almost an entire year later in May of 1998 that Sony released it’s first DualShock controller, which was simply a DualAnalog PlayStation controller with vibration motors built in.
