If you’ve always wanted to know what the inside of a Playstation controller looks like, PC World has opened up three of them and compared their intestines. Golden oldie Dual shock 2 is being compared to its newer brothers Sixaxis and Dual Shock 3.
When they’re opened up, you can clearly see that the Sixaxis doesn’t have any rumble, where both Dual Shock 2 and 3 do have it in the handles.
On the following two pictures you can see the difference between the left and right side rumble of the DS3. The left side has less weight than the right side which makes it produce a wider variety of rumble effects. The final picture shows a close-up of the Dual Shock 2 controller which has a less advanced rumble pack.

Now we’ve seen the insides of the Playstation 3 itself and the controllers, what needs to be opened up next?
