Rumble pad creator Immersion has launched an online survey to find out what gamers think about rumble technology and, judging by the reaction on our forums, it's not seen as that important.
Immersion patented the idea of 'rumble' in game pads in 2000 which meant the game pads for both Xbox and PlayStation 2 were infringing that patent. Immersion subsequently sued both companies but, while Microsoft settled out of court, Sony fought the case. And lost.
Now, following Sony's
It's the game that boasts the "largest superhero alliance ever," and we've got the latest shots and a trailer of action RPG Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. The horde of heroes will land this fall on PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, Wii and GBA.
The game allows you to hand pick a team of four superheroes from a total of 20 playable Marvel characters, then take on the united might of the Marvel super-villains, who have been gathered together by Doctor Doom.
The action bears a striking similarity
Taking off-road racing into the next generation is Sony's own MotorStorm, which is widely expected to be available around the Nov. 17 launch of the PlayStation 3 - and we've got all the latest screenshots.
It's all about intense, over-the-top racing action, offering gamers the chance to get behind the wheel of 35 different vehicles spread across seven classes, then hurtling through the dust and dirt of Monument Valley, taking on both the terrain and several aggressive, computer-controlled
Before, we gave you an in-depth look at how Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom is progressing on PlayStation 3. We focused then on the brutish warrior character. But today, Sony Online Entertainment has finally given us the all-clear to show off the scout, a female character who possesses a very different style - in every possible way.
The scout is lithe and female, and leaps and spins with ease. Her acrobatic moves are an entirely different proposition than the warrior's unsubtle (if effective)
What with Wimbledon on and everything, it seems a perfect time to serve up some more Virtua Tennis 3 shots - the arcade tennis game from Sega that will be out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 early next year.
Career mode will be making a return where you take one created player on a world tour of competitions and minigames in order to develop their game and their bank balance.
The remarkable gameplay will remain largely untouched which means the most notable thing about this second sequel is

Ubisoft's next-gen action game Assassin's Creed may well be in development for PC and Xbox 360, as well as PlayStation 3, if mounting speculation is anything to go by.
Many believed Assassin's Creed to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive, primarily because the Sony console is the only format Ubisoft has confirmed for the game, but the publisher/developer has never actually described it as a PS3 exclusive.
It wouldn't come as any surprise if Assassin's Creed did emerge as a

Senior figures in the games industry have expressed their concerns over the price of PlayStation 3 and suggest Sony should be looking at introducing a price drop in 2007 in order to compete.
Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot told Bloomberg news agency that he expected PS3 to sell out when it is launched later this year but that the high price, which could be as much as £425 in the UK, may put off many casual consumers in the following months.

EA's Redwood Shores studio has released more artwork for its little-known-about next-gen role-playing game, Project Gray Company.
Few details have been revealed about the project, and the curious working title has only added to the mystery. What we do know, though, is that it will be an "experience that allows the player to be the hero in an expansive open world," it will make use of AI that was used for Sims 2 and it takes place in a typical fantasy, Dungeons & Dragons style
We've been dealt some new images of Eye of Judgment, the EyeToy-enabled card-battle game that's being developed for PlayStation 3, and we've placed a handful on the images tab above for your perusal.
Designed by EyeToy creator Richard Marks, Eye of Judgment brings monster-fighting card games to life using the EyeToy and a special mat to sense which cards are being dealt, and then lets the PS3 play out the consequences. The result is a visually stunning game which has mystical creatures
Need for Speed Carbon, the latest in publisher EA's street-racing series, will not be playable online for Nintendo's new console, Wii.
NFS Carbon will support online play for the PS2, Xbox, PS3 and 360, but won't be available to Wii owners, according to Game Informer magazine.
It has also come to light that Carbon will not make use the motion sensing capabilities of either the Wii remote or the PS3 "tilt" controller. EA apparently has concerns over gamer fatigue, what with all the
