The rumble-equipped successor to the lightweight SIXAXIS is almost ready for release. According to the latest issue of Japan's Dengeki PlayStation magazine (quoted over at NeoGAF), the Dual Shock 3 will be compatible with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
bring back some old school rrrrumble
already explained.they did not pay that much money to IMERSION for charity.
it mater of when and how.i do not believe they just going to throw in only rumble(it will be enchanced).especially after all been said about SIXAXIS and sony own comment about rummble been last-gen.
And it's about time... " Oh how I've missed you rrrummble "
Where is October mentioned for the controller? Edit it.
real source with no controller dated: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
and thats why its under rumor if you go to the second page of that thread at neogaf you'll see this picture which it says OCT 2007 Tokyo.
It's easy to make up news regarding a language that no one has even bothered to translate yet. No offense but that's just fetching.
Shall I post a random controller and post it as news as well?
i posted it. If you want to post a random controller story to make yourself feel better then do it. Its under rumor so people will decide for themselves. It'll be ok its not the end of the world. Its late go get some sleep or something because your making a big deal out of nothing.
I hope this can work with other games that already came out...maybe with an update...that will be great!!!
HS,LAIR ,WARHAWK + this
SEPTEMBER will be a killing time for ps3
sweet........i cant wait...............hmmmm...... ..then ill pawn the rumbleless ones off at gamestop......and then buy a new rumble one
everyone is exited to stuff the controller down their pants lol, i hope it officially confirmed
Wait for confirmation, fellas. Yeesh.
It's all about the popularity contest and blind faith.
Even PlayStation fans B!tch about PlayStation news.
On Topic. Hope this rumor is true.
Don't equate me to the absurd behaviors of many here. Sure I'd like it to be true but people here lack the common sense to even bother to question things. They see an image and automatically jump the gun rather than going through the process of finding the truth.
What are you the N4G savior here to show people the light? People will read the news and take from it what they choose they don't need your help. Like the dude said above its under rumor. So if people don't see that then thats their fault and if they believe it to be true and it doesn't come to pass I'm sure their lives will just go on.
I'm here to save everyone. That's it. Not sure what my avatar has to do with that either.
On subject, Leipzig will most likely be the revealing of the controller.
Look the point is your first post you put LIE and then tried to debunk the story then when the dude that posted it responded politely and even though you through in "no offense" you insulted him with your next line saying "but that's just fetching. Shall I post a random controller and post it as news as well"? Whether your a PlayStation Fan or a PlayStation Fanboy or even a Gamer you shouldn't have approached things that way when its a positive rumor for PS3 owners. You should have reacted in a different manner. I mean look at the agree and disagree ratio at yours and his conversation it seems you irritated other PS3 fans also. All i'm saying is you over reacted at something thats not a big deal.
Microsoft adding hdmi to 360 is a big deal !
well the 360 added the hdmi port to the console itself, it was built in, and thus if you wanted one you had to buy a new 360.........where as these controllers are an accessory and would eventually need to be replaced because the built in battery would eventually die
Well its not like everyone wouldn't have preferred it from the start.
They weren't allowed to at the time. Would you prefer because of that, they never brought it back?
most sony fans feel pissed that the rumble issue wasn't resolved b4 launch so cut the crap please. Comparing buying a new pad (or two) to a new sku is a little dumb to be honest. Yes i feel shafted, but how the hell do you feel then. Im just glad its not gunna cost me an arm and a leg to get these new pads.
Fanboy / bias / hypocrite all run hand in hand.
Were you involved with the arguments defending MS for including HDMI, 1080p, HD DVD add on, etc?
Myself I think it's great that rumble and all the above where added on to the 360 and PS3. I just responded because comments like yours only entice negative responses. Whether they support or are against your response / post.
It boggles my mind when I hear replies like yours saying you people are hypocrites because.... or that say now I have heard it all, blah, blah, blah. Please. This is the internet / cesspool of life where nothing should come as a surprise.
I feel a lot of this nonsense would be nearly non existent if there were age appropriate restrictions on forums. No offense to the younger crowd that actually show maturity because the sad part is I know there are a fair amount of adults that add to this nonsense.
bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, comparing a new controller to a new SKU. someone is in desperate spin mode to bash the ps3.
Great news if its true and GT5 prologue will be a perfect game to test this next-gen rumble.
everybody knows its coming they settle the lawsuit with immersion its only a matter of time they offical confirmed ..
Between this, Eye of Judgement and Heavenly Sword, the PS3 might be able to pull out of this recent bad press slump (aka WarHawk and Lair reviews) and make a comeback this holiday season.
weather its a rumor or not the rumble pad will soon be available just imagine motorstorm with a rumble the damm thing will never stop rumbling
I bought my playstation 2 after the gamecube but i had been playing my cousins' and other peoples' playstation 2s before getting one. While it is well designed i never exactly like the stick nubs. the nubs' surface area is too big and convex and the grip isnt good enough. I find that my thumbs slip from them easily. When i first played with the Xbox controller S i feel in love with the stability of the sticks and the concavity on the nub. even while the xbox controller's lose grip the concave nub still helps to keep one's thumb in place. when the playstation nub gets old, it is victim to sweat and rubbing so it really loses grip and sometimes you can press the nub in like a soft button.
I haven't played too much ps3 but the controller feels fine new I just wonder how the sticks' grip performs over an extended period of time
o yea and i cant imagine playing fight night round 3 on an aged ps2 controller
I don't miss it at all...
Of my current collection; Resistance, FNR3, NBA 2K7, APF 2K8, and Virtua Fighter 5, I have yet to feel "rumble withdrawals" while playing any of these games. Even in the most intense moments.
Supposedly the technology is new and somehow different, so I must admit that I will give it a try, but if it turns out to be the same as old school FF, I'll just turn it off.
This is ultimately the best thing though, because it pleases everyone. For those like me, hopefully we have an option to turn it off, and for the force feedback supporters, your dreams will come true soon enough.
Oddly enough, I was originally very pissed with the exclusion of rumble in PS3. I felt it was a huge mistake and a step backward in game immersion.
Even during my first month of gaming on PS3 I was bitter and finding myself lamenting the lack of FF.
When considering which version of a multiplatform game to purchase many factors come into play. FF is usually at the bottom of the list and might/might not be the deciding factor if all else is equal.
Don't get me wrong, rumble still has it's place (online shooters.)
Also, if given the choice I suppose I'd like all my games to support it.
But, the truth is I just don't miss it as much as I thought I would and find I can easily live without it.
Commenting on the article, I'm not sure why so many people are doubting. PS3 games (Dirt for example) are being shipped with rumble options. That's all the proof I need. It's not really a matter of "if" but, more a matter of "when"
The Japanese on the ad only says "The birth of the new racing game standard." I see no mention of the new controller in Japanese on the ad.
What part of this is rumour? Thats rumble is coming back or that its coming October? Can anyone translate that it definately says rumble is coming?
It says The new Standard in english so it sounds like it, but we want confirmation.
i guess we have to wait for TGS07 for confirmation on that.
My guess is Christmas with a SKU price drop.
October would be too early. Sony still needs to unload all the rumble-less controllers. Oops they already are doing it with the 2 free games + controller packages.
Looking back at the decision to delete rumble,common sense should've dictated in that process.If ain't broke don't fix it or you might break it.If they need to get rid of anything it should be that"trying to hard" sixaxis control.If nothing else at least make it optional on every game.Can I get a AMEN.
I love the rumble....
That's great news/rumor, by next year once I get my PS3 console and if Sony makes another bundle deal of some sort with GranTurismo 5, rumble on the sixaxis would have definitely returned!
And by then the cost of the PS3 would have been more affordable and or Sony might even give a proper price-cut.
For now I'll just enjoy playing more games on my XBox 360... Can't wait for next year.
Good way to make a quick buck. Everyone will eventually have to replace their controllers. I mean, who wants to play with a controller that's second best?
in the controller. Touchsense had better be as cool as I've read it is.
I don't really care too much about rumble. But I really hope they make the controller sturdier. The dualshocks on PS2 were very solidly built. But the PS3 sixaxis feels like it's gonna break if you squeeze or twist it too hard. I would rather it be heavier and sturdier than light and fragile.
I dont really have a problem with the no rumble, maybe sony can sell both just for the sake of convenience.
the release of the rumble controller has been (and will have been, by the time this is confirmed) a long time coming. they've acquired the rights to the tech, so why wouldn't they use it?
But Rumble is so overated, it'll proably give the gamming geeks some kind of disease in the future you never know?
they should call it shockaxis but hey rumble is commin back guys SPARTANS !!!! aaarrrrruuuu aaarrruuuuuu aaarrrruuuuuuuuu
I can't wait for it to come out. I like rumble.
It's a big deal. It's rumble and wireless.
It's new technology that people want to try out.
It's not just the rumble. There will be new better connection between the controller to the console Playstation 3.
rumble.. only decrease accuracy. No rumble pls... I can shake it myself when needed.
Nice, its back and I welcome it!
Sony gets NEW rumble technology while M$ keeps giving the XBOTS OLD technology.....AAHAHAHHAHA
Good stuff - it is about time too - I have been holding off getting more controllers.
BUT I will wait for official confirmation before I get excited - there have been far too many rumours regarding this.
Bring baxk the rumble and implement it into our games already.
but as I remember sonyboys you said that rumble didn't matter, now you guys go googly eyes once you we hear that it's coming this year.
you guys are no better than xbots boys who said that HDMI don't matter either but I bet some of them traded there old ones in for a newer verison.
