1UP's Shane: DualShock 3 is "confirmed"

A listen to the latest episode of the 1UP Yours podcast reveals that the rumbling DualShock 3 is "confirmed," at least according to 1UP's lead Sony fanboy, Shane. He says that TGS will ultimately reveal the long-awaited rumbling controllers and the now-legendary 2.0 firmware, which will magically allow you to run many XMB tools from within a game. We're sure Sony's going to playing hardball at TGS, and you'll probably want to tune into our continuing coverage of the event, starting this Wednesday.

2. Shane's the Sony fanboy there, right? Anyway, it makes sense for Sony to announce a ton of big stuff at TGS, it is their big home convention. Also it might help draw some attention away from Halo... okay, it won't, but it'll give Sony fans something to talk about during the Halo launch.

I'm mainly looking forward to game announcements, personally. Even though there's been a bunch of leaks, I'm pretty sure there's still room for a good surprise or two.

3. Notice the glimmer in Shane's eyes; the look of hope. It is time....

But seriously, if they're able to release a rumbling controller, that'd bring a lot of people back home, I feel. I mean, if they were able to introduce rumbling controllers midway through PS1's life, then they can do it early in PS3's life.

4. No rumble for me thanks, it doesnt do anything for me.

5. Yeah i'm betting SONY will reveal the details of both at TGS as well as add some more juciey info about HOME,

But I do have one question ; as for in-game XMB,. Why?!? WTF is the point??? Friends list sure,. but other then that whats the point of being able to access the XMB in game??

Posted at 12:09AM on Sep 17th 2007 by Tim Parsons

6. @5 to be able to listen to music on the XMB while playing games

7. Oh good. My Sixaxis thinks I'm permanently tilting it to the right, so I was getting ready to go out and purchase a replacement one, but because the Dualshock 3 is now confirmed, I guess I'll wait it out.

8. I guess though it would be nice to be able to transfer a few vids/mp3 or something without having to close the game or sometihng but I still dont see myself ever actually making use of that if they did include it. But I ain't gonna complain if they do LOL,. I just can't wait to get my hands on a Rumble SIXAXIS and HOME,. and 2.0 of course LOL

9. Thank God! I couldn't imagine playing Assassin's Creed or Killzone 2 without rumble! The SIXAXIS just feels so...empty. It's like firing a gun without the bang. I'm so glad that Sony is finally deciding to announce this. If it is launched before November, then it's going to be a heck of a year.
Oh, and @ 5
You could potentially access your music, send messages, game invites, chat invitations to your friends, join the games your friends are playing(one of the things I have been wanting to do for so long.), view messages from your friends without having to exit your game and shit, use the internet browser, and basically use all the features of the XMB without having to exit your game. It's a good thing really.

10. I'm happy that these are finally coming to the PS3, but I dont think I should be too happy about it? I mean, shouldn't this have come standard? Anywho, looking forward to hopefully getting some good news about games...(*please oh please*)

Posted at 12:22AM on Sep 17th 2007 by Jose

11. @9 true enough i guess i've just never had the interest in it enough to care but Extra/new features never hurt,. as for the friends list thing it would certainly not leave it up to game devs to include it in crappy ways Like in LAIR where half the time the LAIR NETWORK freezes anyway ,.Guess we'll know for sure about it all by this time next wekk as TGS runs from Thurs 20 - Sun 23,. Can't wait myself also to see what SqaureENix has there considering SONY's area at TGS is the biggest there Period twice the size of the 2nd biggest which is a tie between a few publishers one of which is SqaureEnix,.

12. maybe this will get some developers to makes game for ps3.. since that's wat almost everyone complained about..=/ stooges lol jk and ooooo metal gear might get rumble after all~ =]

Posted at 12:36AM on Sep 17th 2007 by SkeetSkiLee

13. I think Shane is EMG's editor... no?

Posted at 12:37AM on Sep 17th 2007 by JayC

14. I hope the PS3 can use rumble for old PS2 games as well. I only want to use it for GT4.

Posted at 12:50AM on Sep 17th 2007 by ruibing

15. I've been waiting for this to purchase a second controller. I hope they fix the unsyncing problem too.

Posted at 12:52AM on Sep 17th 2007 by BlackBeltJones

18. what unsyncing problem @ 15?

Posted at 12:55AM on Sep 17th 2007 by Justin

19. im not that fussed about having rumble

Posted at 1:03AM on Sep 17th 2007 by Ste

20. I hope they release Home AND Firmware 2.0 sometime in the next month. That would be pretty awesome. And maybe even the rumble controller.

I hope the added rumble doesn't raise the price, because I've got a controller still in the packaging so hopefully I can trade that back in and get a rumbling one!
