PS3 Controller Might Rumble After All

According to the latest issue of Famitsu PS2, in which they conducted a brief Q&A with premiere peripheral-maker Hori, the disappearance of the rumble in the Sixaxis doesn't mean the feature is gone forever.

When asked if Hori was considering a peripheral that would allow PS3 players to have a rumbling controller, a company representative said, "We have some ideas. However, we'd need cooperation from software makers." So let's just hope there are a few third party-ers out there who like the idea enough to leap on board.

Currently, Hori has three PS3 items available for the Japanese launch. The first is a multi card reader/writer, which will be compatible with the Memory Stick, SD, Compact Flash and several other cards, and it's slated to retail for 2,604 yen. Hori will also offer a set of SD cards in 256MB (2,880 yen), 512MB (3,980 yen), and 1 Gig sizes.

None of these are designed specifically for the PS3 (they don't even include a PS3 logo), but Hori remains one of the biggest peripheral makers in Japan, so add-ons designed for the PS3 are probably a distinct possibility. The only question remains: will one of them bring rumble back to the Sony console?
