Good news for the SIXAXIS, though I'm sure some people will find fault in this.
I find fault in this, rumble is moot.
I dunno, I like rumble in my controller.
Maybe I'm just use to it now.
i never minded no rumble in my ps3 controller. but this is good news. and im sure youll hear alot of people saying crap like...
"well, it should have been this way from the start!"
well, it should have been this way from the start!
It’s irrelevant to me once I don’t have any plans to get a PS3 any time soon (can’t be dropping $600 with Botcon coming up) but I can talk about rumble in general.
The novelty has for the most part worn off on me and I don’t even notice it any more and when I play games with out it (like on the PSP) I have never thought “dame I wish this game would make the control shack violently.” Now if they made a game pad with real force feedback, that would be slick.
So even though this should help with the people that where upset that they lost there vibrator I’m sure some will be upset they have to buy all new game pads to get it back.
So the 7 PS3 owners to date are gonna be pissed...
but.... I thought the lawsuit had nothing to do with not putting rumble into the ps3 controller.
Didn't Sony say that the reason that they removed the rumble feature was because it'd get in the way of the motion-sensing function.
Everybody and their grandmother knew it always had to do with legal issues.
Good to hear. Looks like I'll be waiting to purchase my second controller.
After Sony's recent claim that rumble was "Last gen." I'd love to know how they plan to backpeddel.
Sony exec 1: "Can we retcon that?"
Sony exec 2: "What's it matter, we're Sony!"
That's great, now sony will have a great excuse to make people who already bought the ps3 go out and buy new controllers. I had no idea there was no vibration; this just adds to my theory that sony jumped the gun and released the system a year or two too early.
Heh heh, you said lost their vibrator, Beavis, heh heh.
Hmm sure are alot of people getting online to play RFOM with those 6 other consoles out there.
I liked having the rumble in the PS2 but the lack of it on the PS3 hasn't affected me. I thought I would care, but I don't so much. If it comes back thats cool.
Yes Sir. Spin spin spin my friend.
Bout time. One of the reasons for me not liking the PS3 is its lack of rumble. If they can throw some rumble in, make that xbox live type thing work, make Lair and Warhawk turn out to be excellent games, I'll buy a PS3.
I don't see the appeal myself. A vibrating joypad that is nothing like the objects that you'd actually use to do stuff in real life hardly adds anything to a game in the same way that force feeback sticks, wheels and guns do. Its not like any of them even vibrate hard enougth to impede play or act as a deterent either.
Don't try to understand it. They've become masters at it, far beyond what the typical human can conceive. Just stand back and watch with awe and reverence.
I have to admit, I really enjoy the feedback on even the little things, like in the Wii menu, hovering over a section gives you a tiny rumble feedback. It just feels natural, and intuitive.
I'm all for sensory stimulation for video games. Come on Smell-o-vision!
