Gamers will have forgotten all about the lack of rumble in console pads by next year, reckons Matt Southern, producer of PlayStation 3 racer MotorStorm.
"By 2007 we'll say 'no rumble? What of it?'" Southern told Official PlayStation 2 Magazine. He believes "the many positives of PS3 far outweigh the lack of rumble".
Sony took the decision to remove the rumble feature, which was included with previous PlayStation controllers, as it said the vibration would interfere with
Bet you never expected the worst affliction you'd pick up from slaughtering zombies is eyestrain. Most reviewers are in agreement with us - Dead Rising is a hell of a lot of fun. What isn't fun is trying to read the game's tiny text if you're playing the game without a crisp, clear and huge HDTV. If you're stuck in standard definition, the text in the game is so tiny that - even on a decent-sized TV - it's hard or impossible to read, rendering some of the game's content
Between F-Zero and Wipeout, you'd think the future-racing genre would be well covered - well, Fatal Inertia hopes to carve out its own hovercraft-loving niche when it launches right alongside the PS3 this fall. Today we've got several new screens to unleash, most of which feature the game's offensive
Cheap HD? We'll see
According to statements made during the latest podcast from Microsoft's number one paid fanboy Major Nelson, the HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360 will be the cheapest HD-DVD player on the market when it comes out. Since you can pick one up for about 500 bucks these days, we're more than a little skeptical that this is true. We're guessing you don't figure in the price of the Xbox 360 hardware - Microsoft may well be pretending that isn't a factor. Unfortunately, they're not
We got a hot video from Ubisoft this morning featuring Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas producer Alexandre Parizeau dishing out the dirt on the gameplay behind the upcoming Clancy combat-simulator. Granted, most of the in-game footage shown is stuff that we've already seen from their E3 trailer, but it's definitely nice to have a little explanation from one of the bigwigs at

PlayStation worldwide studios captain Phil Harrison told British newspaper The Guardian that he would be "amazed if the PlayStation 4 has a physical disc drive." Seems odd talk from a man still struggling to convince the world it needs the PlayStation 3 - and its Blu-ray drive.
According to Harrison, there are "right now more than 100 Blu-ray movies available today, in the US." Problem is, Phil, even when we give you credit for instant classics like Ultraviolet and Basic
You must click the Movies tab above. You must bear witness to the most amazing video for any Star Wars game ever (and, yes, that includes the Lego Star Wars videos that combine Yoda's head with Leia's golden bikini-clad torso). Keep in mind that this video (leaked a week ago on YouTube and now released officially by LucasArts as the mother of all teasers) is what gaming industry-heads call "target video" and so is not actually of any in-game footage or a tech-demo as previously reported, but
In today's newly released teaser trailer, Electronic Arts has announced a new installment of the NBA Street series - and that's about it. The video makes a point that everyday people need relatable heroes and that idolized hero should be a basketball superstar who also stays true to his roots. Street fans'll just be happy to see the urban/aggressive NBA counterpart return.
Right now, the game's being called, simply, NBA Street, which is sure to cause all kinds of fun Google and Ebay moments
Today, publisher Namco Bandai announced that the latest installment in giant-robot saga Mobile Suit Gundam will arrive on the PlayStation 3 this year. To accompany the release, we've got some fresh screens of the new game - simply called Mobile Suit Gundam at the moment - which you can check out by hitting the Images tab above.
When we saw the game for the first time at the E3 expo in May, it looked to be a standard third-person action game - albeit with beautifully rendered giant robots. That

Sony has updated the FAQ section on its official PS3 site to reveal that gamers will be able to use their PS2 and PSone memory card saves when playing their current and past-gen games on the new console.
The explanation of just how this will work is as follows: "To use saved data on a PlayStation 2 memory card, you must copy the data on to a virtual memory card within the hard disk. This requires a PS2/PSone memory card adaptor to copy the data to your PlayStation 3. A
