Gamepro spoke with Vic Viegas, the CEO of force-feedback manufacturer Immersion Corp., concerning Sony's decision to eliminate "rumbling" from the PlayStation 3 controller, force feedback's place in gaming, and the company's plans for the future.
That's cool the dev's are putting the rumble code in games just in case. No rumlbe isn't next-gen gaming Theirs four corners to the nent-gen experiance, Graphics, Sound, Rumble and services. No rumble is like Sex with out feeling in you're **** / -we'll never know.
Lmao I agree rumble is neat, necessary? who knows, guess we'll find out someday
Rumble is very necessary in videogames for more of an immersive experience take resident evil, Condemed or even metal gear for example these games use it well and you get really into the experience
WHO THE HECK CARES ABOUT RUMBLE??????, it was annoying anyway!, and why is this even an issue????..im so tired of hearing about this already..Sony didnt pursue it because they know that as soon as the ps3 comes out no one will care anyway. Drop it Imersion, Sony does not care and neither will their true fans.
ow right ofcourse, now the controllers have lack of rumble suddenly no Fony gamer would mind anymore about it being present or not. This illustrates the biggest fanboys out there. You even would talk things straight when they say their console wouldn't be a game console anymore. Oh wait, Sony is saying that. uhm uhm uhm ah yeah you would even talk things straight when Fony said their console would be a non standard BetaBluRay videoplayer and games that are shown in CGI but can't make it in realtime. Oh damn uh Sony is doing that also. I rest my case
What the heck did you just say?
that you're talking sh*t. Everyone loves rumble exept you. What my point is, that it's obvious that Fony Fanboys suddenly say they never needed rumble now it's not implemented in the controllers anymore. Righttttt
Its like they are taking a step backward how many times have you played a game and your controller starts to shake and you go holy crap whats going on and meta gear was a prime example and even more so resident evil 4 fighting the water on the lake would have been the same with out it or comdemed on the last your engulfed in darkness and all of a sudden its shakin tht freaked me out..and i know your gonna respond with some sophmoric comment about how im a p*ssy,wuss whaterv you wanna call it but those small things suck you in to games and with out it theres not point in awesome graphics with immersion to go with it
Noo Dude this isnt the old web site everyone is entitled to thier own opinion, I just dont see it as being that important (although you do have a point.) The web masters got rid of most of the idiots. I do see your point.
Heck, I turned it off on most games anyway cause it was annoying. Its time to get rid of the old and done to death and bring in something new. Immersions just scared cause they know once PS3 gamers dont have it, they wont care and wont really miss it. Heck, its just vibration its not the IMPACT OF A TACKLE... lol I've been tackled and nothing about it vibrated.
The truth is that this is a step backwards, "rumble" or "vibration" was added to all the last gen controllers because it was a "added capability" that MOST gamers wanted. Now this does not mean that the PS3 will live or die without this feature, of course not....but it does take something away from the experience when you take away vibration, especially in games like Resident Evil, and for those who say it doesn't matter now that Sony has decided to cut it....YEAH RIGHT, maybe for the very few who actually turn it off, but if you believe its true for the majority of us then you are only fooling yourself.
Kool Aid (no sugar), Ham (no burger), Ceral ( no milk)yauc!
I think that the buyer should make the choice, not the company. With the 360(and probably the wii), YOU can decide on wheather to turn in ON/OFF. Does anyone like froot loops? they are sooo good.
Rumble is nice but it's not needed. Sure it would be nice if they after all get it in it. That tilting function has more new gimmicks than over used rumble. Get good hometheatre system that gives you rumble =P
It's something like a 'dissatisfier-factor'. Once you have rumble, you won't notice it anymore. You feel like: hhhmmmm I could even miss it! Then you play a game without rumble and one says... Well heck, what am I missing in this game? On this console? That's what rumble is. An option that can't be missed for sure. How you are going to detect in a FPS when someone shoots you in the back? By a flashing red screen? That's dull. See it as the air conditioning on a car. When you never had it, the old Opel will drive. But once you've had AC and have to go back to the situation without... You're feeling scr*wed
hell when i'm playing games i don't even notice the rumble feature and when i turn it off i don't notice its missing so no big loss for me i like the new concept anyway
You would even like it if Ken would say the PSZero would be for doing your laundry. So everything you say can automatically been put at the fanboy section. And go watch yourself http://www.pwned.nl
i think that more people care about vibration, then the ones who don't. The 360's vibration is awesome but you can also just turn it off if you chose to. I did just to see how it would affect gaming and to be honest, i havent turned it back on since. Im playing GRAW real heavy these days and its just pure fun, even with no rumble. But to be honest i think not having it at all does suck tho. But its not the end of the world.
I THINK SONY`S GOT PLENTY BILLS TO REGULATE FIRST SO EVENTUALLY 3rd PARTY CONTROLLERS WITH RUMBLE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SOMETIME.LATER SONY MIGHT START INCLUDING RUMBLE AFTER THEY`V SOLD SOME PS3 CONSOLES
You could try to unlock your caps lock. Your statements won't be taken more seriously if you type all in capitals. BTW most stupid thing Sony could do is skip rumble first and then get it out for a couple of reasons: 1. Game producers won't worry about programming rumble if the controllers won't support it directly. So games wouldn't work with rumble. When 3rd party comes available there already a lot of games out there without rumble support. 2. There is a NO RUMBLE controller packed with the PS3. So if one buys another with rumble if it could come available, he always has one without that's sh*tty 3. If they don't apply it right away, they won't apply rumble lateron. If they knew the importance of rumble, they would have paid immersion right away 4. Paying for rumble is no small game. So 3rd party controllers with rumble? I think the market is too small because most Fony Fanboys don't even miss rumble they say (right...) 5. Immersion is in MS hands, so they could ask Sony anything they want in price. MS has a great position in hardware exclusives and software exclusives. Conclusion: Sony could better make their delaystation a nowaystation and cancel it. However, some competition is good for MS to keep up the good work
to ps3 owners to be.. the way i see it, the rumble feature missing is not the reason y we shud not be buying one.. sure it will be a nice add on.. but thats abt it, wont be messing up the gameplay w/o it.. i played plenty of games w/o rumble.. i noe im gonna have 1 not bcoz i support sony or am anti micro.. i have a ps1 thats it.. no ps2, tot of buying xbox.. but the only game i play on xbox is ninja gaiden.. i noe ps3 will have weak launch titles but im gonna get ps2 titles 2 since it is backward compatible.. and that is most impt in a console.. coz i have not yet played most ps2 titles that i want, with the intro of ps3, the prices of ps2 games are likely to drop.. thats when i buy them.. im not just talkin old games.. valkyrie profile 2 is at the top of my list.. im gonna get a ps3, to play future ps3 games.. but also current ps2 games.. xbox360 is a great console, but the games so far hasnt interest me, with exception of gow.. and i don like fps at all.. xcept duke nukem and cs.. gow is sweet.. i mean dark sweet..
You know what? I just bought an Xbox 360 because im just not gonna pay 600 for a Ps3 and i agree with you, im not into FPS as well but i also didnt want to wait for the price to drop on thePs3 before getting a NextGen system. as far as the Rumble feature it seems that a good percentage of people really could care less about it.. please explaim that to theMART. XBox is cool but i have a feeling that about a year from now we wont be questioning which system is the truest Next Gen console. The games on the last Sony system were far and beyond anything developed for xbox.
you forget that in a year, 360 games will be on their 2 year generation developments. The PS3 games will constantly be playing catch up to the 360 devleopers.
90m Bucks seems like a lot of paper for something that nobody cares about. Sony are not silly they knew exactly what they were doing when they put the technology in their controllers. So is rumble important, I think so
You are lying, you can always turn it off. So why not include it? As an option, for the small 1% that will turn it off, and the Large 99% that want to keep it on. Pay the money Sony, you pay good money for exclusives, so why go back to the PS1 days?
and for the record, i love rumble and it makes games better.
