Why Are We Getting Dual Shock 3 in 2008?

The Dual Shock 3 announcement at Tokyo Game Show 2007 was hardly shocking, but when Sony Computer Entertainment President and Group COO Kaz Hirai revealed North American and European gamers wouldn't receive the peripheral until Spring 2008, eyebrows raised. Folks in Japan will experience PlayStation 3 rumbling before the year is out and Hirai's reveal seemed to gloss over this anomaly.

As long as it comes out before KZ2, MGS4, and GT5, then I'm happy. But getting out sooner would be greatly appreciated.

so I guess you can get one from when it is released and it will work with new games.

I can't wait to play MotorStorm with rumble. Hope that Haze ad is true and we don't have to wait till 2008.

i dont get all the fuss. its not like we dont know what a rumble feels like. why is everyone building hype for it????

even the nintendo 64 had it........

and didnt some guy say at e3 05 "rumble was so last gen"

But he said "The rumble we have in the Dualshock 2 right now is sort of last generation, if you will." He was talking about touch-sense. If the Dualshock 3 doesn't seem significantly better than the Dualsock 2...he's an idiot.

If it does...then, he was completely right.
