Shane from 1up.com describes PS3's new rumble (DS3) and tells why it truly is "next gen" rumble.
some say its like the ps2 rumble some say its next gen. Which one is it?
It sounds like it uses the same hardware. But it's not the same rumble.
@xaphanze: That´s what I heard too...confusing. Well, I´ll be getting two of those either way. I can imagine my GF saying "when will you need 4 controllers?" and I´ll say "but,but these new ones have Rumble" :)...
If you don't program your game to use it any differently then how will it be different??? Shane is commenting on its use in MGS4 which we all know the series had some of the best rumble implementation.
... rumble is last gen so they bring out next gen rumble. i think i see article about this in psm3 a couple of months ago so i kinda expected this.
to me that it might very between exclusive's and multi platforms. So maybe thats a reason why some feel like old school rumble while others don't?
Immersion said the new rumble that they wanted to incorporate in Sony's rumbless sixaxis was Touchsense. a new solution that ties both sony's style of motion sensing and and better level of force feedback than previous techs. I remember Immersion saying that this new kind of rumble would allow you to feel softer and more subtle varitions when Driving over grass verses driving on dirt and asphalt. as an example. this further was made to truth when IGN gave there recent impressions of DMC4 at TGS07 on the DS3... and I quote "The largest adjustment, of course, was the inclusion of rumble for the demo. As one of the primary titles featuring rumble on the game floor for the PS3, it was nice to see the game showcase a variety of vibrations depending on the strike that you landed or the objects broken. It was also good to feel an extra kick when you were firing your guns, which was sorely missed in earlier versions of the game"...
it would be cool if it would be in all directions too.
Rumble is rumble...it is either there or it is not. Just another attempt to somehow say something is better than the other for the fanboy's sake. I'm sure rumble 5.1 is just around the corner...geeez.
Think outside of the box bud.
is that alittle green monster i see.
That's funny.. Wow, atleast it's finally coming out though!!
Shane of all the people working in 1up is the most Bias... The guy is a joke.
If you had seen the show you would know that they all think it. Not just him.
You're right i haven't watch the show but, It doesn't erase the fact that he is a [email protected]
He is also very knowledgable about video games in general. I think it's funn that he is like the sdf (sony defense force) leader, but he does know his stuff. Yes, I believe he is bias towards sony, but oh well. He has an opinion. Give him a break.
yea, biased torward sony is soooo wrong, but biased torward ms is ok. you are the fanboy here! one of the worst.
Achira its not a matter of Sony or MS. The thing is that when you are suppose to be a professional, like Shane its suppose to be, you cant let your preferences get in the way and Shane is such a fanboy that he cant hide it. I think he's a super joke and he give bad reputation to those who really do a god job in this industry.
Did you read my post? Yes, I do like the 360. No,I don't like the ps3, but I do say positive stuff about the ps3 and if you didn't notice I said something positive about the very vocal sony lover Shane. He is very knowledgeable about video games and I would listen to his advice. Achira, you should take a look in the mirror kid.
yep 1up sucks large.
For those who has seen the 1up show you know what it is. The new rumble means that when something explodes on your left/front side then controller will only rumble on your left/front side. Giving you an edge on where the battle is going on.
Whats it going to do, break your fingers?
Watch the show .... then comment.... It's pretty easy when you think about it.
So it will pleasure you while you play Heavenly Sword.. Nah, it rumbles independently which makes no real difference but I'm sure will be made out to be the Cell and Blu-ray of controllers toughted by fanboys as gods balls incarnate! It's already happened with the douchebag at 1-up. "It believe its slightly better than the 360 rumble." Stuuuuuuuupppppppppiiiiiiiiii ddddddd
LOL... sorry of topic but that made me laugh,.
This has to be the stupidest post I've ever read. The rate in which a games rumbles is based on how high a developer sets it for their game. It sounds as though Playstation 3 fans are grasping at straws.
agreed... LAAAAAAAAAAAME. @ below I dont think its a word, but this is not an english class, so have fun lol...
even a word?
you must be slow. my money is that you: 1. Dont have a PS3 or plan to get one so you shouldnt care 2. Did not read the post 3. Did not watch the 1up show
well im glad Sony finally caught up vbut whats gunna happen to the 3 million last gen controllers?
They will explode in your hands the second the new ones arrive in stores....
People will eventually trade them in for the better ones like the fatty Xbox controllers. [email protected]
I had 11 of the fatty standard controllers after the new small ones came out. I have giant circus freak hands, and actually loved the size of them. All my friends just gave me theirs instead of turning them in :P
