    I think those have been shipping from Gamestop for about a week now. But i'm glad they are finally out. I can get a Black one to go with my White Japanese one.

    They're out. I saw someone buying one this weekend. But 60 bucks on a controller, or 60 bucks on a means to run over Twin-Twist (ie. GTA)... I'll take the latter for now.

    yeah, heheh, so now when you are stearing your dragon in Lair, and there is rumble, the dragon convulses and nosedives for the ground.

    Well I already have 4 controllers I don't really need anymore. I guess if one breaks I would replace it but who needs 7 controllers? Plus sony is replacing two of my controllers that are not working properly.

    I like Rumble, but I don't need it. It doesn't really change my experience except for one genre, Rally Racing. I bought the 360 version of that just based on Rumble.

    They're out in some stores now, seen them at Eb and Best Buy about 4 days ago. I imported mine a few months ago for cheaper than the US release and I'm absolutley in love with it.

    I saw them in Walmart. I didn't realize they had broken a street date or anything like that.

    Isn't Microsoft somehow making money off this due to their deal with Immersion?

    I've been waiting for the rumble to buy my 2nd PS3 pad, figured if I was going to spend on a controller it may as well be the rumbler.

    Patent. And they've settled their dispute with Immersion, so they're okay to do this now.

    Came out last week I think. I got mine from Amazon on Monday. I like it, Warhawk and DMC4 needed some rumbley action. Not to mention I missed it on my PS2 games.

    Awesome. Good thing that I have held off on buying an extra controller.
