    Will the rumble ever return?

    Since Sony's PS3 gamepad will not have Rumble does that also mean no video games will even have the option for rumble for it all? Meaning not even 3rd party rumble pads would work.

    This really sucks.

    I don't get why they just don't make their own rumble instead of using Immersions technique...pretty weird don't you think?

    There is probably some kind of copyright on the rumble

    You take a random small object, poke an even smaller stick through it, that doesn't go through the center, and spin the stick around as fast as you can. The effect is vibration.

    And if that's patented... Then the world has come to an end. You might aswell patent basic shapes and colors.

    You forget that even the "Happy Birthday Song" is copyrighted. What a sad world we live in.

    The exact implementation that the PS2 uses was copyrighted by Immersion. Sony can either make a new implementation of rumble, or just pay the fees to Immersion and use theirs, or use someone elses. Cell phones, the Wii, and the XBox 360 all have rumble (and Microsoft did pay Immersion).

    Trust me the patent would probably be worth millions It would all be too easy for sony to make another rumble. There is obviously something stopping them. (Or they just can't be arsed) I think it is made from a displaced driveshaft or something, there is probably dozens of deferent ways of making it, all with different effects.

    Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge at you because you are a vegetarian.

    [LIVE] VUDU movie streaming goes 3D

    The VUDU movie streaming service now supports stereoscopic 3D streaming, Caitlin Spaan, Head of Marketing for VUDU, announced on the PlayStation Blog.

    Of course, you'll need a 3D compatible television and a set of 3D glasses to be able to watch the content in the glorious third dimension.

    VUDU is available as a downloadable movie streaming application on the PlayStation 3's XMB, in addition to Netflix and Sony's own movie purchase/rental service.

    Next week, VUDU will reveal its plans for 4D TV, and after that, world domination. [Editor's Note: Do not believe Eric. He is a bold-faced liar.]
