Rumblaxis coming in September -- Tokyo Game Show

A lot of people were disappointed that Sony's little conference at E3 didn't talk about the upcoming Rumblaxis controller (it's pronounced Rum + Blaxis because that's really the coolest name we could think of), but PS3 Fanboy was not surprised. We've been informed that Immersion has filed for some patents and with it, indirectly filed for the release dates of their new Sony peripheral device that "will now bear Immersion's Feel The Game® TouchSense® Technology logo." When are these peripherals to be released? September.

If you're having trouble connecting the dots, the Tokyo Game Show is generally in September. Sony had to save some of its announcements so they could steal the show at TGS, much like we feel they did at E3. So, for those worried, the Rumblaxis is coming in September and you know what? We would expect the announcement at TGS to go something like "hey, we're releasing this Rumblaxis controller we're holding in our hands tomorrow at your favorite retailers. Enjoy!" We can't wait.

1. Great news! They'll be coming a little bit late though.

2. I prefer Shockaxis over Rumblaxis. Remember, rumble is is Touchsense.

Sony did steal the show. Nintendo was OK. Microsoft....baaaaaaaaaaaaad.

TGS should prove interesting. I wonder, will we have a sneak peak at the game that Criterion is developing for PS3? What about FF, Gran Turismo, Team Ico, Getaway, the Rockstar developed western game, LA Noire?

Sony still has many big games to show off.

3. The games and Home are great, but wtf is up with the lack of XMB announcements? We missed our firmware update last week and I doubt anything is coming today either.

4. Hey PS3Fanboy... how about: Name the New |SixaxiS| controller contest? eh?

Posted at 9:30AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Peter J

5. @popfrogs :

Aren't firmware updates generally last thursday of the month? I though this was the general rule..... last week was the 5th July.... significant in the good ol US of A but here in the rained !!

6. So is there any difference between the Rumble in the new ps3 controller and the rumble in other system ccontrollers? or is it the same shit.

Posted at 10:21AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Troy

7. Sixaxis + Touchsense = Sixsense.

Posted at 10:22AM on Jul 12th 2007 by SKI

8. I bet Sony is really happy about the PS3 sales they're losing from people holding out until September because of this leaked info.

Posted at 10:27AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Bored

9. Personally, I always liked DualShake.

Posted at 10:28AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Bored

10. I'm thinking SenseAxis.

Posted at 10:30AM on Jul 12th 2007 by irshliquor

11. Dude, Sixaxis - Type R

Posted at 10:45AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Aex

12. ARE YOU DAMN CRYBABIES HAPPY!?!!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!

you got your freaking rumble back, now you can get off to your favorite video games again! sooo damn annoying.

Posted at 10:52AM on Jul 12th 2007 by CarNage

13. one things for sure, we will see something FFXIII Related during TGS and possibly more PS3 exclusive games. One question though, would the adopters of the original sixaxis controllers get a free trade or somthing for this, becuase its seems a bit unfair if you know what I mean. Anyway, Im really happy with Sony none the less, they dominated E3

Posted at 10:53AM on Jul 12th 2007 by lenny0487

14. i like sixaxis touchsense. or just touchsense controller.

Posted at 11:15AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Tru-blu

15. Whats wrong with CarNage?
I'm guessing it has something to do with this! (Sorry I just heard about it, and its quite interesting lol)

Eh calm down dood. Whats wrong with a bit o' news? We're just happy blog readers doing our daily blog reading. Chill.

Hmm I like Rumblaxis actually haha! It sounds cool. And really its coined to show the rumble feature. Most people don't know what touch sense is and sixsense is a movie =P *shruggs* I say we have a poll Nick!

@ lenny. That would be awesome, but you somehow know it won't happen =). Its a business - that's like.. handing in your old computer for the newer version. lol.

Plus it'll take a while before the rumblaxis is incorporated into games... I'm guessing uncharted or heavenly sword could be the first dwellers of this?

OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH THATS WHY MGS4 IS DELAYED UNTIL 2008! =) I'm now satisfied with my excuse of MGS4 delaying haha!

16. @Troy: It's different. From the descriptions I read, it appears to be a more location sensitive feedback that also has some sort of control over the analog sticks.

The old "Rumble" was nothing more than little motors with off-balance weights.

Posted at 11:33AM on Jul 12th 2007 by Andir3.0

17. Troy,

Go to and you will see the difference. we have the best of both worlds.

Posted at 11:34AM on Jul 12th 2007 by GodisaMyth

18. It should be called 'KIXAXIS' because it sounds kinda like 'kicks asses' which is exactly what it will do.

Posted at 11:45AM on Jul 12th 2007 by UltimateNinja9

19. SixaxiS + Touchsense =


im genius.

Posted at 11:46AM on Jul 12th 2007 by KiraXD

20. "HA losers, playing your crappy first person shooter and crappy off road game who have spent your life savings on a ps3. but just a little late on the rumble feature. WHOOO HALO 3"

$500 is your life savings? Man, you will make a hobo living in a box look like a rich man if that is what you have in mind for life savings.

You can have your Gaylo 3. I will take, Uncharted, Killzone 2, RaC, FF, MGS4,(you cant have it 360) GT5, LBP, NC Soft and so on.

Oh yeah, you can have the RROD too. I will take a reliable console that is future proof.
