    Sweet.

    If they get the Rumble with the Sixaxis, plus MGS4 and Uncharted, the PS3 should finally be ready for me to buy one.

    Because they were getting sued by Immersion, the company who has a patent on the technology used in rumble pads. They settled out of court, signed a contract and now the PS pad rumbles again.

    You like that Rumble, don't you Bra? :D 

    It does make the controller heavier, as I noticed now that I'm playing my 360. So I'm going to bulk up playing Lair when they add Rumble.

    I bet oprah's happy now that the rumble feature is coming back, since now it means her sony vibrator is wireless.

    Yeah and good luck finding a job at any multi-million dollar coorporation. Or did PR all of a sudden turn honest in the last couple of years?

    Funny that Microsoft is now suing Immersion over that deal.

    And Nintendo is going to sue them all for the SNES face button layout, particularly in the case of the Xbox, with the Y X and A and B being exactly where the ol' Snes ones were. Made it easy to play Xbox when I got it because I knew those buttons. What if there was a universal controller?? What if?? Next Oprah.
