Sony Dual-Shock 3 for PS3

Sony Computer Entertainment on Thursday formally announced its rumble-enabled Dual Shock 3 controller for the PlayStation 3 game console and said that the controller would begin shipping in Japan this November and is expected to be available in the US and Europe next Spring (2008). According to the report, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kazuo Hirai confirmed the existence of the rumored rumble-enabled Dual Shock 3 controller and noted several games that were compatible with the rumble feature, including Devil May Cry 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid Online, and Ratchet and Clank Future as well as long list of already-released titles -- such as Warhawk -- which were expected to be updated with support for the controller, ShackNews reports.

"One of the largest voices of our users was that they wanted the addition of the vibration feature on the Sixaxis controller," Hirai told his audience. "At the beginning we thought that would be very difficult technologically... however, we have been able to overcome this difficulty... This will be a new way of enjoying the PS3."
