Dual Shock 3 dissected - First photos

100°
349w ago - Officially announced at this year's Tokyo Game show and due to hit the west next spring, Sony's long hoped-for rumble-enabled Sixaxis controller for the PlayStation 3 is now available in Japan. We've found some pictures on a Japanese Web site which show off both an exposed view of the controller's insides as well as the rumble effect of the motors. Click through for those latter ones.

As expected it's a similar twin-motor set-up to the previous Dual Shock 2, Sony having turned down Immersion's newer, more streamlined technology. Also on show is the ceramic white edition of the controller, which you can find on the third page. It's a sleek and sexy little thing indeed, but we can't help thinking that the black buttons kind of kill the effect.

The controllers are currently available from Playasia.com, but sadly the site isn't exporting to Europe. Fear of a similar legal whupping from SCEE to the one which saw Lik-Sang.com shut down for exporting PSPs to the region? We'd bet on it.

Fatal Inertia better on PS3

50°
349w ago - KOEI has told Eurogamer that futuristic racer Fatal Inertia will be a better game on PS3.

The company is spending more time on it after the 360 version failed to ignite critical fuses when it was released in September. According to a spokesperson for the publisher, they're polishing up technical areas and putting together a more enticing demo than Live customers were treated to.

New content is a possibility, too, although nothing concrete is known at this point.

KOEI US recently offered next spring as an expected date for the title. However, we were told nothing has been decided internally and it is currently "in development for 2008", as it's always been.

Fatal Inertia began life as a PS3 exclusive, but met delays because it was fiddly getting it to work with Unreal Engine 3.

The game lets you zip around interesting courses like canyons and caves in futuristic flying ships, using all sorts of innovative weaponry to hamper the progress of your opponents.

Unfortunately it was let down by a poor frame rate and ill-conceived technical features in the 360 version. KOEI is hoping to iron out those kinks in time for the PS3 release.
