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] joke.
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]: Nice. I never really liked the big ones. I have big hands too, but not that damn big ;)
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
at least that is what most have said when Xbox fanboys made fun of the PS3 not having a last gen option with there next gen console.
what are they going to complain about something being added? also if it is as they say in the 1up podcast, then its a new type of rumble, not like the dualshock 2, so if by any means getting some new added stuff to the sixaxis is not bad in my eyes. also lets say the 360 starts to get a sixaxis feature, i think a couple of you guys would actually like that, what are fanboys going to ruin your day and say you guys thought it sucked
kinda like the hdmi port thing
It doesn't surprise me that a soulless droid only remembers part of the argument. The argument was that no rumble was a bad thing because six axis sucked. Allot of people said no rumble was okay because they liked sixaxis. Now those people have both. Basing a whole game around sixaxis maybe dumb but it is awesome to use on in game mini games it adds allot of depth. In short win win for them loss for fandroids.
Kinda like a HDD in the 360?
I really dont care about rumble but there are a few games i really do like it. Racing games and shooters i do like how he said u could feel where the explosions are based off the rumble...thats cool...i can see some cool things coming from that advance
it would be very nice.. it would shorten your reaction time to turn into the direction they're shooting you, and even thou the technology wouldn't be hard to make, who knows if they'd go out of their way for this to happen like with every news, we're gonna have to wait and see
I'm sorry but Shane is a complete retard. It got so bad over on the 1up boards that anyone who mentioned Shane's name in a "negative" post, was getting banned on the spot. Don't get me wrong, I think its great that Sony has realized that rumble is a necessity. It's a much needed move that really benefits the PS3's gaming experience. But Shane sounds like a total retard on the whole matter. Seriously, I laughed when I read what he had said. How this guy has a job in the gaming industry just boggles my mind.
you wish you had shanes job ..
Because Shane doesn't deserve the job that he has! He sounds like a complete moron on each and every podcast that he does. Yeah, we get it. Shane likes the PS3 and in his mind, Sony can't do any wrong. But when he tries to argue the fact, he sounds like a complete idiot. To the point where you can hear the frustration in everyone elses voices. It's OK if he is biased over over one or the other. He just needs to stop trying to argue about it because he sounds like a moron when he does. The only thing Shane is good for is a "good laugh"!
looking forward to being fully immersed when playing Killzone 2...explosions everyhwere, bullets passing nearby, and the controller rumbling all over the place :p Ah, it can't come soon enough! (not to speak about the integration of Rumble in MGS4)
sony had to make kojima happy.
Us All happy. Well except for the haters.
they asked........"are you happy"?
That Kojima delayed the game for rumble to be implemented. It's just a theory though.
He's my favorite of the EGM cast. As far as the new rumble, it's a good thing. Even if it's just the same controllers as the PS2, or if they add new stuff. We'll know once they're out.
Shane cool? please. The guy is a retard. He makes 1up look bad.
its funny to see that xbox fanboys hate shane .. hes the playstaion lead what is the guy supposed to talk about after reviewing the dualshock 3? Halo? i am sure that will make a lot of people happy.
Shane is a fanboy. I dont know how he still has a job... the guy is a joke.
if so the rest of the crew would be fired too, because they are xbots.
This is a transcript from this week’s episode of the 1Up Show, and even though developers had very little time to implement anything for TGS and the fact that it’s still a prototype, staff members were able to discern that the Dual Shock 3’s force feedback is quite advanced and doesn’t feel like weight’s spinning. It’s a lot more subtle, and the directional feedback is pretty awesome.
Last time Dan Shu got totally hammerd for being baised and saying Halo 3 owned Killzone 2. The dude hasn't posted a blog since then.
There are a couple of reasons I will gladly buy a couple new controllers with rumble: - The Rumble (obvious) - The Weight - I like to have a heftier controller in my palms
agreed ... i miss the dualshock weight ;)
Whenever I go from playing my 360, I pick up the PS3's controller and think they are missing the batteries or something. I was going to pick up another sixaxis but am going to wait for the new ones to come out.
supposed to hit our shores? I think I read some where November for Japan.
@ wignut26 I have to agree with you on the weight I like the controller being a little heavier.
Shane is cool. And Jennifer Tsao is cool. They should of got married and sh*t and ruled EGM together. Dan Shu sucks.
The weight and the make is obviously the problem also. The PS3 controllers felt too hollow and too easily breakable. They needed to stiffen them up. I think the new DualShock 3 will do that.
It better be improved, considering it took another whole year to implement.
a year to implement, Sony was in court with the the company claiming the technology I believe
So next year I'm playing Resistance 2 on 60 frames per sec + next gen rumble, ooooooo sweetness :)
The xbot haters just hate that the new Dualshock 3 is much better than the Xbox 360 controller..... Its going to be some good times on the PS3......real soon...I am still having fun in warhawk though...
haha I knew it.. (read my above post) Even if the Dualshock made drinks it wouldn't even be in the same league as the 360 controller.. I have both and it is night and day.. If I could hook my 360 controller to the PS3 I would do it in an instant.
I thought most PS3 owners on this site said they did'nt like rumble in games and usually turned it off because it was annoying. Not anymore I guess.
for certain games it was annoying. I loved it for racing games, but when playing deathmatch when all you are doing is getting shot, the controller never stops vibrating. I started playing FPS on pcs and racing games on consoles. Obviously pcs don't have rumble. EDIT: @26.2- True that, takes a while to get use to, but it is awesome.
