Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced that it would release DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller, a new controller for PLAYSTATION 3 incorporating a rumble feature, in Japan in November as a separately sold accessory. It inherits the basic design and functionality of the popular PlayStation controller, while keeping the high-precision, high response motion sensitive six-axis sensing system. Introduction to North American and European markets is expected in spring 2008.
There have been manu rumors suggesting this functionality, but now Sony has finally confirmed the news. According to the Sony press release, rumble functionality can be added to existing games through a software update. The DualShock 3 controller will include SIXAXIS motion sensing functionality.
