A listen to the latest episode of the 1UP Yours podcast reveals that the rumbling DualShock 3 is "confirmed," at least according to 1UP's lead Sony fanboy, Shane. Link to original news podcast site: http://www.1up.com/do/minisite?cId=3149993
confirmed or confirmed for tgs. heard it but think he said confirmed for tgs
at the beginning when you were deprived of rumble. All that I'm saying is don't act like you didn't care then when under the surface you really did,and said things about certain competitors in the attemt to shrug off how cool and important rumble was and always can be. Just an observation,don't lie to yourselves like Sony does to you....haha.....peace.
LMAO. i love how you go back to the past with words like "didn't, was, then" well we couldn't careless about the past. geez is this your best attempt and shooting down this great news??? i laugh at you.
"You Xbox guys know you were truly bothered when you were tottally f*cked up with the DEFFECTIVE CONSOLES AND RROD!!! All that I'm saying is don't act like you didn't care then when under the surface you really did!!!!!!! Just an observation,don't lie to yourselves like Microsoft does to you!!!!!!" That's more like it!!!!!
well to be perfectly honest all fanboy antics aside i have both consoles and i personally prefer playin on the 360 simply because of the greater variety of games. However recently i have warhawk to play, graw 2 which i played the demo on 360 and rumble would greatly enhance the game play then heavenly sword. This is the most fun i have had with my ps3 period. As more games come in i no doubt will have more fun. However i have been having fun without rumble and i will continue to. However rumble does enhance gameplay in some instances and i honestly cant't wait to see it in games like heavenly sword, warhawk and graw. 360 fanboys who are here can be jolly all they want and try to pull ps3 news dwn in the usual immature manner. I for one am excited about 2 things. If they include firmware 2.0 with in game xmb, a release date for home that is very close and rumble then 360 wnt be getting much play anymore. I planned to sell it after christmas anyway but 2 titles are currently holdin me back NG2 and banjo kazooie.
Dude, concerning your reply to Tom Fool- you just don't know how right your second to last sentence is. MS is the biggest liar in the biz. If they could have gotten away lying to consumers about the defective, rushed systems for another year-they most definitely would have. I'm sure MS's defense to this would be something like, "Oh we're sorry. We didn't realize that there was a problem, until we had a million repair tickets, half a million tickets didn't allow us to perceive a problem." Yeah right.
Ooooooohhhh, another RRoD joke. L O freakin L
LOL u fony turds dont hav anything else except RROD and its gotten quite old now. NOw it doesnt even bother cuz of 3 year warranty and newer versions of heat sinks. While we still are waiting for the next gen to start when sony says its started, 4d gfx, rumble old gen, LIAR, Warcrap, Girlysord are the games of next gen (yeah next gen 10 years back). Also just wait for E3 06, then E3 07, now E3 08...WAIT WAIT AND MOre WAITING. AND ALL U retards can come up with RROD. Just like sony u lack creativity.
He adds balance to the show since Garnet is a 360 fanboy. Jon Davidson just moderates them haha
He is not that much of a fanboy as the rest of them, he's also a Wii fanboy which makes him more neutral than the rest. :)
My inside source in Sony told me this as well. (Yes I'm a Sony Fan because I actually have family stake in the company, so console wars affect me in that way). He's made good on previous facts like the Price Drop and PSP Slim. I'd say this is happening 100% since he told me this, and then 2-3 days later, I hear this.
I guess I'd better comment on this since it's my story :) Personally I was fine without rumble, but now that it's coming out I'm DEFINITELY not going to complain. If nothing else it'll make Killzone 2 even more immersive.
what else did he tell u? Anything about the 400$ PS3? Will they remove some features?
(It's my brother) and no, he didn't even mention anything about firmware 2.0 or anything like that, just that a new controller with rumble would come out, and it would be called "DualShock 3"
Let me get this str8, so now we have to all run out and buy new controllers, nice work sony, way to treat your customers. Too little too late, just like everything else they are doing, now that the PS3 is a spectacular failure we get all the things it should have had at launch? What a bunch of goofs.
Sony will release a virus that makes all other controllers fail randomly. :| RIGHT.
you don't have to buy it it's not like it required
If by "spectacular failure" you mean, "in exactly the same spot in sales as the 360 was after 10 months", then I totally agree with you. But you're right. It kind of sucks that rumble was taken away only to brought back again. But as long as the new controllers are the same price, I don't think anyone will really complain.
ya like Microsoft didn't do that with the hdmi on their 360's. I had the original 360 without hdmi and i didn't cry or whine and i already have a couple of ps3 controllers and i really do not care it happens as consoles get older, they get upgraded. Are you going to cry and whine when the 65 nm chips come out for the 360 and ps3 too?
Look at all the disagrees I got, this is why the PS3 is underwhelming, because no matter how much Sony screws you guys you make excuses for them. 360 fans b*tch up a storm off the smallest mistakes M$ makes, Major Nelson is constantly apologizing for something on his podcast LOL, and then we get results, a superior console for less money. It is Ok to critisize your console of choice guys, this is how you get change, because the coporate goofs will try to get away with giving you as little as possible for as much money as possible if they can.
ok but what your saying right now is totally diffrent ok what you said is that there forceing the new controllers on to us No there not and for your comment now wtf are you talking about?
...but I didn't disagree with your comment. There's nothing spectacular about Sony's failure to destroy Microsoft. The sales numbers are about the same. And I don't own a PS3, I own a Wii.
Lets get this straight, if you want HDMI and a 120 gigabyte hard drive in your console, Microsoft is screwing you over by forcing you to buy a new console? That's what they did with the elite wasn't it? See where I'm getting at? Rumble isn't essential in the same way where HDMI and a large harddrive aren't essential. If you want that luxury of the feature, you pay, if not, stick with the standard sixaxis. Simple as that. You try and taint everything but companies pull this thing off many times, it's not like Sony told us games will require Rumble so you have to throw out your sixaxis's. Then I'd be pissed. Shut your hole and stop complaing, the nerve of some people I swear to God, coming in here to pour water on a good party. I'm a fan of rumble, I'm buying a damn new controller since I only had 1 before anyways. Christ almighty........I'd love to know what the hell you were thinking coming in here when the idiotic thought of writing all that crossed your mind...
6.5 - Wow "Look at all the disagrees I got, this is why the PS3 is underwhelming, because no matter how much Sony screws you guys you make excuses for them. 360 fans b*tch up a storm off the smallest mistakes M$ makes, Major Nelson is constantly apologizing for something on his podcast LOL, and then we get results, a superior console for less money." Yeah, that why every Xbot I've ever heard acts like 10 million busted consoles isn't a bit deal, but apparently having to buy a new controller is.
i dont disagree with criticism, i do with people who think they have to do something they dont want. u have the power to choose whatever u wish my friend. if u want u can sell your ps3. i u want u can buy the new contoller or just keep the old ones. i dont know why u get upset about an upgrade. do u get mad when halo 2 is upgraded to halo 3? do get angry when windows xp is upgraded to windows vista? i dont think so. everything in business is about selling new stuff and upgrading old one.making better stuff. so get yourself the new controller or let it be. and lets be honest. its not like rumble is the ultra awesome feature that made the ps2 so famous.
ARE U F*CKIN SERIOUS?!?! ever since the 360 came out you guys have been holding MS nuts trying to cover for them. 360 with no HDD = we don't need a HDD 360 with no HDMI = we don't need HDMI 360 with games require HDD = well that only will affect a few 360 RRoD problem = they'll fix it over and over 360 comes with 100th sku = they're trying to give us options MS over-charging accessories = they're in business to make money 360 scratch disk = ummmmm.......PS3 has no games you're living in a dream world, with all the other bots. now go back to jerking off to another Halo commercial.
no ones forceing you to go buy a new controller
- OK "Let me get this str8,you guys that own a Xbox core system, so now we have to all run out and buy a HDD, nice work MS, way to treat your customers. Too little too late, just like everything else they are doing, now that the Xbox360 is a spectacular failure we get all the things it should have had at launch? What a bunch of goofs." - You're better shut up now!!!!!
Introducing......"THE NEW PS3 controller!!!" w/ LAST-GEN technology!! RUMBLE!!
and i've seen the 360 ads introducing the 360-with last gen storage format! i kid, i kid.
Nope, it's touchsense, and it is next-gen. Different parts of the controller can rumble independently and at different levels of intensity depending what going on in the game. I'd like to see some sort of swap program implemented by Sony but I doubt it.. In the end it'll nice to have some sort of rumble being supported again. There's nothing like the MOHA demo on the 360 with rumble! I couldn't get over how well they implemented it. I would compare it to the likes of analog vs digital.
Hey Nekon you seem to know a bit about it. Will the dualshock 3 still suport the sixaxis motion controls? I'm guessing so. and as for the controller shaking in different areas I dont get what difference that would make. EDIT: Thanks Pirate and now I know ;) bubble for you my friend.
Monkey, touchsense's marketing bulletpoint is that it does not interfere at all with motio sensing equipment. It's ideal for placement in the Sixaxis. Also, the shaking from different areas means, if you get hit from the left, the left handle and stick will jolt! If you're firing a machine gun, the vibrations will be in sync with the fire a they shock the right handle first and you feel the recoil travel from the right to the left. Just think about the rumble being an indicator of what's going on screen, it can simulate just about anything, it really i next-gen rumble. All the people who've tried it have wrote favorable first impressions.
