Touchscreen feedback rumble. There's something like that on the Samsung P3.
At least we are slowly learning more and more.
However, shame this will not be nintendo's announcement
Isnt the media summit today?
Well, i was wondering why nintendo focused on some sensational touch rather than multi touch, LOL
It is indeed, and I myself cannot wait!
Never used the rumble pak my foot! loved that thing. I used it on all 2 game that used it! Metroid Prime Pinball, and Mario and Luigi- Partners in Time. I loved the way it felt in my hands and the noise it made.
Yeah been looking forward to it too. Hopefully it doesn't turn out to be a too big disappointment...
Not really too excited about rumble. Just another way to drain the battery more. Hopefully it's optional for most titles, if they do decide to use it.
I hope it goes somthing like: "hey look the new DS, and Wii HD, also look new zelda games that dont suck!"
That would be awsome.
I think that would be the best, some rumble packs I just never liked so and option for it would be my preference.
I do not suppose anyone knows where one can stream the media summit online (if at all!). I am about to go looking for it myself
BTW, when is the media summit(what time of the day)?
It's way too early for a DS2 to be announced, the XL hasn't even arrived in Europe yet
Nintendo is a Japanese company and follows the schedule for Japanese customers.
It could be years before we actually get to play on the DS2.
But rumble feedback in the touchscreen itself? That actually does sound interesting! In terms of games design it could open new methods of design, imagine walking along the planes of your town in animal crossing, as you suddenly feel a rumble under your stylus...who knows, could it be a fossil?
Personally, I feel multi-touch wouldn't be suited to the DS as you have multiple other inputs, and you primarily use a stylus instead. That being said, stylus input is very precise, whilst the iPhone's capacitive multi-touch screen is very inaccurate and totally unsuited for drawing.
Wait, a rumbling touch screen? Wouldn't that be annoying? What if you're trying to tap the screen while it's rumbling, would it still be precise and all?
i can see it now some kid is playing and he doesnt know about the rumble all of a sudden his whole ds shakes and he gets shit scared and drops and smashes the ds2
Well technically, they never called it a rumble screen. They say that the screen offers varying levels of force feedback.
They will probably just be minor vibrations in select areas of the screen.
You ever touched one of those joke-lighters that "shocks" you? It'll probably be like that, just not so violent.
I lol'd. Seriously.
