    Default Sony: 'We're Open to Changing the Sixaxis'

I don't have anything to tell you specifically, but we're open to changing the Sixaxis controller."

    A major complaint that's been lodged regarding the controller by countless members of the media and gaming community is the lack of rumble, which the SIXAXIS controller doesn't have. Is the extremely careful phrasing by Tretton his way of hinting that we could be seeing rumble functionality in the near future (after all, Sony and Immersion have kissed and made up)?

    Next-generation rumble is about to begin with us leading the pack. -Sony

    Get your $49.99 ready kids, your current SIXAXIS is about to be outdated and replaced by the SIXRUMBLEAXIS.
    XD

    Hi, I'm Sony.
    My business model is to sell you a broken, incomplete and poorly supported (online?) console at extortionate prices while marketing it as the ultimate in home entertaiment. I will then over a period of time sell you extras, fixes and addons that you expected at release and yet still fall short on what I promised you.
    Bad press? Hey, all publicity is good publicity right? Now empty your wallet on the desk and bend over.

    well really it's not sony's fault, they couldn't have predicted when if ever they'd be on good terms with the rumble company, so it's either halt the launch of the system till the lawsuit is completed, and wait to see if they can patch things up, or release the system with no controllers? yeah those would have worked great, it just goes to show sony listened to whoever the hell was demanding rumble, even though myself i couldn't care less about rumble one way or the other, i still don't think it's as bad as the wii, they'll have a different controller for each game soon enough, oh you want to play a fps? too bad you don't have the gun add on controller, oh you want to play classic games? wait you don't have the normal controller, oh you want to play star wars? where the fuck is your wiisaber!
    - I'm right, you're wrong, and there is nothing you can do about it

    How much do you want to bet that Sony will phase out the SIXAXIS in favour of the "SIXRUMBLEAXIS"?

    You know what? This makes sony 100% fucking hypocrites.

    They said rumble was the last generation, now they want it on their precious controller. This is just too damn priceless.

    May I have some of what you are smoking? It appears to be very potent.

    Edit:
    Oh and seeing how the tilt control is being badly used, I can't wait to hear the following announcement:
    Sony reveals Dual Shock 3 controller.
    Basically a wireless Dual Shock 2 with triggers.

    Minus the ergonomics.

    Now don't tell me that the 360 controller is not great, because these 8-12 year old kids seem to be really good at using it when they kick my sorry ass in Gears of War. =(

    nah, i dont think they're gonna do dual shock 3. Wouldnt make sense. Either someone will make good use of it sooner or later, or even if no one does, there's no point in removing it from the controller. It can be used as a "additional" feature of the controller.

    You know how girls play racing games? If they want to run left, they press left and if that's not enough, they will move their entire body to the left while their hands will dangerously veer left as well.
    Well thanks to the SIXAXIS, Need For Speed Carbon has Girlie Controls(TM)! Tilt for an extra edge in the direction you want!
