TGS '07: Phil Harrison on Dual Shock 3

Sony president Kaz Hirai apologized for not having enough time to really go into details about Dual Shock 3, so GameSpot caught up with Sony Worldwide Studios boss Phil Harrison to find out a little more.

Harrison told GameSpot that the primary reason that the company bought back the Dual Shock rumble controller was that people wanted it. He said, "A lot of people have been asking for it, and now we've done it."

He also explained that there is no learning curve required for developers to implement Dual Shock into PlayStation 3 games, as the system to do so is exactly the same as the one which was used for the PlayStation 2.

I have a feeling the Japan only release means they are getting plain vanilla rumble like the Wii/360 and not Touch Sense.

Just a thought.

You act like Sony has something to prove to Microsoft... haha. Or the world for that matter.... regardless of what happened last night, Sony is going to sell MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of consoles over the next SEVERAL years... PS3 hasn't even been out a full year yet, man. Just relax and let people talk their sh!t,THEY BARELY HAVE ANY LEAD, Sony will crush a 5 million console lead... come on dude, Microsoft IS NOT Sony don't worry.

Hope dual shock in FFVII remake

Squeezle3831d ago

This is good, but they should have gone to the proper lengths to ensure they had rumble from the start...

Marceles3831d ago

I hope they release the Dual Shock 3 with this TouchSense technology we've been hearing about, and not release a Dual Shock 3 and then later release yet another controller with the TouchSense included.

A variety of TGS MGS4 hands-on reports said gunshots were felt on different sides of the controller. I haven't heard anything regarding positional rumble on Burnout or other games yet, though.
