Confirmed: SIXAXIS set to rumble

There’s been talk, talk and more talk of the Playstation 3’s SIXAXIS controller getting it’s rumble but nothing quite official. Finally, we’ve got the first Sony endorsed confirmation that the SIXAXIS will rumble.

Brian Ashcraft from Kotaku writes, “Today, a Sony Computer Entertainment employee confirmed directly to me that the SIXAXIS with rumble is coming.”

That’s all the confirmation we have so far. While it’s a fairly obvious inclusion for the SIXAXIS redesign, especially following Sony’s kiss and make up with Immersion, the rumble producer, this is not yet an OFFICIAL confirmation. You decide whether it’s still rumor or not but Ashcraft is usually spot on the money.

From Kotaku! Lol

Oh, and check out the image they used of the SIXAXIS control. Notice a certain “ICGamers” watermark sitting pretty?

I thought the Sixaxis couldnt work with rumble………….. :)

Because of legal difficulties with Immersion, the company that produces the force feedback technology.

Have fun playing catch-up there Sony hahaha!

“Rumble is last-gen” “SIXAXIS will not work with Rumble” “PS3 is shit” “oops did we say that out loud?” ROLF!

Problems supposedly associated with SIXAXIS and rumble were because of issues surrounding battery life. It would appear, if you read the other articles linked from this one, that the PS3 will receive a better version of the rumble-tech.

You’ll eat your words my friend.
