Burnout: EA confirms rumble, Eye support

Sept 24, 2007

EA sends word that Burnout Paradise does in fact support Sony's new Dualshock 3 rumble controller, as well as the PlayStation Eye camera. But that's OK.

"Burnout Paradise will have you feeling every bump, crash, scrape, and collision using Sony's new DualShock 3 Wireless Controller," boasts the overly-enthusiastic PR, while noting the new EasyDrive online Friends List which lets players jump into a challenge with "three taps of a button."

Using the PlayStation Eye, you can apparently grab snapshots and collect Mugshots of friends while they race. The Xbox 360 version of the game features Mugshots using Xbox Live Vision, EA confirms, as we reported back in March.

"Burnout Paradise does something that no other Burnout game has ever done - it gives the player full control on how to play the game," says Alex Ward, Creative Director at EA Criterion Studios.

"At Criterion, we have a long history of delivering stand-out software on the PlayStation consoles. The entire team is fired up about the opportunity to carry that heritage into the PlayStation 3 generation."
