    So now only the 360 has rumble? Bummer if this is true. I love my rumble feature.

    Yeah, it would be kind of hard fitting all of that into the remote. If the speaker is a mic as well, then I can live with that. If it is a speaker only, that seems kind of lame.

    The rumble feature is needed for this though. Without any real resistance, the rumble feature would be a great tool to gauge when to stop when punching, or swinging a sword.

    What do they mean the rumor mill has said that the Wii-mote will have Rumble? NoA's own site says so: http://wii.nintendo.com/controller.html

    It's not a rumor. Either someone got their facts wrong or Nintendo's taking out the rumble feature which they said it would have.

    Well, the good news is that they can always attach a Wii-rumble pack to that expansion port at the bottom of each controller, and attach another expansion slot on the bottom of said expansion pack (for nunchaku, etc).

    I'd think they'd institute this sort of correction by the second year or so.

    But...if they don't, is it possible we're seeing the demise of the rumble feature, and a
    return to non-force feedback gaming?

    yeah, Nintendo's site says it will have it....unless they didnt update their site...

    but with the rumble, it'll make FPS way better, especially trying to aim straight when your getting hit (rumbling)
