SIXAXIS Rumble via SplitFish?
So the biggest thing about the PS3 controller is that it now has tilt functionality. The PS3 can detect when you move or rotate the controller, in 3 axes each. The second-biggest thing about the PS3 controller is that it does not have rumble. And people have been talking about it ever since. Yadda rumble this, yadda rumble that.
Some of the talk is about Immersion and whether or not Sony would settle their suit with them so that they could use rumble.
But now SplitFish says that they’d be able to supply Sony with rumble for their controller without trespassing on Immersion’s patents. So now the ball is in Sony’s court – will they or won’t they? Somehow I doubt it.
