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.
Why would you even make a comment like that? I don't get it. Sony DID say that. Here's proof: http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... Hopefully, the rumble controller will be included in future PS3 SKUs.
PS3 is next gen 2.0, Xbox 360 is last gen 1.5 The 360 is still a good console though to play used games from Gamestop for $25 like Dead Risings, and Gears of War but the last game I bought on the 360 was Lost Planet then I figure why buy anything on the 360 new anymore. I have both system so just buy the PS3 versions or wait til it comes out because with all the issues with the 360 it may not be around much longer. Plus Sony has better exclusives and more of them. Now Rumble is back and will enhance the Shooter experience. We miss you Rumble.
Here's to hoping that Kojima puts Rumble back into MGS4! I will get one of these and only one. My other two sixaxis can just be for multiplayer.
honestly, when they pushed MGS4 back I kinda thought it had be due to rumble coming. I'm sure Kojima had access to info like this months ago and he has made it clear that he wanted rumble in MGS4.
Woot! putting money aside to buy a dual shock one, will keep the two i have for mulitplayer with friends(unless gamestop gives me a good deal on used controllers)
finally the ps3 controller will have some life to it
As long as itll still have Sixaxis, then im game. Not that I really miss rumble, but its welcomed back. Fullyloaded, honestly, I think it will feel 'old gen' to me now that I think about it. HS taught me a thing or two about sixaxis that I found fun, thats something rumble never did. Rumble was always like, oh, ok... thats nice. Together you have 'nice fun' I guess. I dunno
What about all those people who already have a PS3 without the rumble contoller? Good one Sony. I am sure the millions of users are happy that they have been jilted.
Jilted? What games would current Playstation 3 owners play that allow for rumble except for GT:HD? None right? So, it doesn't make a difference, if you want to play the rumble enabled games you'll buy the new controller when it is officially released. I mean, even the new bundles don't come with the "Dualshock 3". The 40GB one? Who knows, we'll have to wait and see, but I highly doubt it.
You're just saying that because you know most PS3 owners got screwed. But hey, like you said; it doesn't make a difference. Regardless, this is good news.
Good news if true, if not, well, just another day goes by~
The extra weight in the controller will be welcome. This new one is a little lite. But has to use more power maybe.
LOL! I agree. I've never really missed the rumble feature but the standard Sixaxis is so light I thought I was gonna snap it on numerous occasions playing through Ninja Gaidens harder difficulties. Gonna be interesting how some games using the Sixaxis will respond with the vibration. Watching your character spaz out when the pad vibrates violently LOL!
If your a PS3 owner and you don't feel screwed. I really don't feel screwed at all, they're reintroducing a technology in the system in the duration of it's lifespan. I didn't mind when it happened with the PS1 (Like X-Box 360 owners say when it comes to multiple disks, "I didn't mind switching cd's in the PS1 days, I don't mind it now, etc"), and I don't mind it happening now. Better late then never, I held off on buying a controller because I new a rumble controller was coming the moment they settled with Immersion. *Signs* N.B. The purpose of this post nullfies the argument that we feel "jilted, cheated, and screwed" by Sony. Stop telling us how we feel, it makes you all look presumptious and stupid.
I dont feel cheated.
Same thing happened w/ the PSOne. 'Tis part of life.
cant wait til they bring rumble back
Dual Shock 3 would be the right name, even though it technically has one motor. =]
I'm signing. Hey we all know why rumble wasn't there in the first place. Would you prefer they included it against a court order and charged $300 for each one to pay their legal fee? No doubt some people, probably would.
i don't feel cheated. i feel cheated about rumble the same as bots feel cheated about no HHD, HDMI, RRoD, dvd games, and $100 for a 20gig add-on.
sony didnt screw me.... third parties did.
I remember buying the Psone dual analogue controller (No rumble)and even 6 months later getting the Dualshock. PS1 had 3 revisions technically. I'll only buy a Dualshock 3 when a good game uses the new tech in there though (MGS4??).
Don't feel cheated I'm glad they listened to there consumer base wanting rumble back. And gotta admit the whole touchsense thing sounds pretty cool.
I didn't feel cheated when Sony didn't have rumble in the first PS1 at launch, and then they released it so i wanted to buy the dualShock controllers. I didn't feel cheated when Xbox made those S controllers, which I wanted to buy. And I don't feel cheated now.
Could care less about rumble so obviously I don't feel slighted. Signed.
I never really cared for rumble so I don't feel cheated at all.
I have not missed rumble one single moment and had a blast using sixaxis controls, iheard some people wanted rumble back which is fine and sony is delivering for them. Let me remind xbots one of their favorite quotes "OPTIONS". I dont feel screwed by the way.
***Signs*** Looking forward to having more options, but rumble doesn't suit all games. I hope it's backward compatible with the PS3 games out now.
feeling good! q:
Actually I got only 2 sixaxis so add 2 more dualshock3 will complete the set. Btw, I feel more rip off with 360 HDMI. (yes I got 360 2 months after it came out and the one I bought has no HDMI). Obviously the gap between price of a console and the price of a controller is huge. So why one more controller? why not , another console for HDMI? have to think about that.
I don't feel cheated or screwed. In fact, the PS3 has lived up to my expectations, something that other consoles I have bought in the past - such as the Nintendo DS, the Gamecube and even the PS2 - never did.
dont feel cheated
Cheated no. This always happens in technology. If you keep waiting for the next best thing or price. You'll never buy anything when it comes to technology.
I like the idea of rumble on the sticks, but then it's almost like it's going to make the game less enjoyable if it messes you more than it immerses you. I always thought the asthetics of the sixaxis looked rushed, so i'm going to have to the dualshock 3 when it launches.
