New PS3 DualShock 3 hits FCC

50°
353w ago - The new PS3 controller DualShock 3 has finally hit the FCC for testing. Not long to go now until North American gamers can experience the joys of rumble once again on the Playstation platform.

To quote: The original Playstation 2 rumble controller was hailed as one of the most innovative advances to console technology at the time. Yet this feature was surprisingly absent from the Playstation 3 when it was announced about this time last year.

Sony never admitted why it opted to ditch the rumble technology, though a pending lawsuit between Sony and Immersion seemed the likely culprit. Not only did gamers miss the rumble technology on their PS3 systems, but also game developers were also disappointed at the lack of rumble feedback on the PS3.

In March of 2007, DailyTech reported that Sony and Immersion ended legal battles paving the way for rumble technology to make its way into future PS3 controllers. In February, Sony said it was open to changing the PS3 SIXAXES controller, reinforcing the hopes of gamers and developers that rumble technology would come back to Sony console systems.
