When it comes to controllers, Sony has always been ahead of the competition. The one hiccup over the years was the addition of motion-sensor controls (something most developers ignore) instead of rumble in the PS3 SIXAXIS controllers that shipped with the console. Now Sony has gone back to the drawing board and added rumble functionality on top of the tilt-functionality, delivering vibrations to PS3 hands around the world.
With support for up to seven controllers, these wireless Dual Shock 3s offer the best of both worlds. Those game companies that support SIXAXIS will still reach gamers and now explosions and pot holes will be felt by PS3 gamers for the first time. These sleek wireless devices feel just right in your hands and power up through the USB ports on the console. It’s been a while coming, but it’s nice to see the rumble finally debut on PS3.
