DualShock 3 More Advanced Than DualShock 2, Claims Metal Gear Solid 4 Developer

Contrary to official reports from Sony, Kojima Productions' Ryan Payton has gone on the record to state that the rumble in the DualShock 3 is more advanced than its DualShock 2 counterpart.

While discussing the rumble in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3) on the studio's podcast, guest Mark MacDonald of GameVideos brought up the game's use of positional rumble--a feature not found in the DualShock 2.

"Is it safe to definitively say that the rumble in the DualShock 3 is better than the rumble in DualShock 2?" MacDonald asked.

"Absolutely, yeah," responded Payton. "I mean, it feels better."

Payton went on to reveal that Kojima Productions and several other developers, including Capcom's Devil May Cry 4 team, had only received the tools to implement rumble a week before the Tokyo Game Show. The last minute rush to integrate new functionality calls to mind similar reports regarding the unveiling of Sixaxis motion control at Sony's E3 2006 press briefing.

but rumble isnt important...

To the nice people who disagree: I turned rumble off on my 360

drewdrakes4040d ago (Edited 4040d ago )

or more then 1mb of ram :)

Shiro - who said i picked a side, im making fun of everyone. I know bill gates said that about the 1mb of ram (not about game consoles). How about people will buy the playstation at whatever price we put it at?

I actually cant think of another xbox one off the top of my head, ill work on it.

And i never mess up ;)

Azures4040d ago (Edited 4040d ago )

or failure rate problems.

edit: see u messed up drew. were going with things they said they didn't need or didn't exist.

sony never tried to get 1 "mb" of ram.

Rumble and HDMI may not be important, but HDD is very valueable to developers to put out the best possible product. Read the current issue of Gameinformer, to see what rockstar has been asking permission for,from Microsoft.

I don't really miss rumble, but anything that adds to the experience is always welcome.

Same here, this just means I will have 4 controllers. Not a big deal.
