SIXAXIS Gets It’s Rumble On

January 31st, 2007 . by jb

Playmote + NunchuckSplitFish GameWare has created a new force feedback system that applies it's rumbling to the PS3 SIXAXIS controller.

The funniest part about this news is that the SplitFish is claiming that it's feedback "uses no moving parts to produce meaningful sensory feedback".  No moving parts, eh?  Is it some kind of wave emitter that's going to give you hand cancer or something?  How do you feel vibration if there is nothing moving?!

What's cool is that the device is able to be sold as an add-on or built directly into the SIXAXIS during production (if Sony would ever oblige).

With the PS3 not turning profits right now: I can't see Sony forking over more money to include a feature.  Force Feedback isn't going to make or break the system.

Pictured is one of their other devices for the PS2.  Wii Nunchuck + DualShock = Ugly.
