    Since sony couldn't pay it's fees for rumble it was taken out of their controller, and now they say it's a last gen feature without it now they say the ps3 is now a real next gen system? The dual analog has been the same since ps1 i wonder why that's not considered last gen [​IMG], but rumble makes games better depending on the game of course. The real new feature for this generation is motion sensing, and nintendo is the only one that has it let alone done it justice. [​IMG]

    A PS2's Dualshock 2 controller is different from the original Dualshock... Most notably the four face buttons recognize how hard you press them, well two positions anyway. IIRC, the buttons underneath the analog sticks in a Dualshock 2 didn't exist in the original Dualshock either.

    The Six Axis for the the PS3 has motion sensing built into it, that's where the other two axis come from. Sony claimed this is one of the reasons the tanked the rumble as it interfered w/ the motion sensors. If it's any good or not I don't know, the game that was in the PS3 kiosk at my local EB didn't seem to support it.

    But, yeah, I agree w/ you, Sony's arrogance knows no bounds. They seem to think that they can say any damn thing they want and the world will eat it as truth.

    It's not a question of the Dual Shock being last gen. It is a question if rumble is last gen.
    Rumble is not last gen or next gen. It is more sensory feedback to immerse the gamer deeper. Let the gamer decide if they want it. Sony thinks they can tell the public what they want. So far it has worked. Hopefully, this gen they get knocked off the top seat. That way they will make a console consumers want next next gen.

    It's just rumble becomes hohum to many people. It's always there now... So people might consider it last gen because not many people care. But i love it. I even like it on the DS. I wish more games would use it though.

    sony USED to be a respectable corp.
    what the hell has happened to them? it is blatant LIE to tell the public tactile feedback is 'last-gen'.

    rumble is one of the big steps towards the true next gen.
    'feeling' of games, not just mashing buttons/sticks.
    the wii wand gyro/pointer are the next step

    besides, has not every controller from every console since N64 have some kind of rumble built-in or accessory?

    i want to read ps3 boys flip this news!

    Oh come on now you know Sony is full of crap if they want you to swallow that rumble messes up motion sensors. Nintendo has those, accelerometer and more in there with rumble...and it doesn't get hosed, and in a smaller area.

    Fact is they got caught, got sued, lost, and being king of arrogance decided instead of paying a small pittance to use the tech they gutted it from the controller and decided to 'show them' like lil 5 year olds calling it 'the past.'

    I'm not surprised, they lied about not porting any PS1 games onto the PSP when the PSP just launched some years ago. Now they're saying rumble is in their future again... When is Sony going to stop lying? ... And killing innocent companies like Lik-Sang... and making quality product... hopefully nothing that explodes.

    Figures... *checks crystal ball*

    ...6 mo later...

    Rumble is a vital technology that will help immerse the player more into our gaming environments. Not only will they be able in a game to move about with the motion function feel the environment as they interact with it, and it interacts with them.


    They're arrogant, liars, and full of crap. That would fit.
