Rumbling SIXAXIS to release with GT5 Prologue
The news that PlayStation 3 owners have been waiting for is nearly upon us… Word around the campfire places the new SIXAXIS with rumble capabilities on the market with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue!
And looking at the image above, taken from Sony’s official Japanese GT5 site, it seems clear that the new controller will become available in Japan at the same time as GT5 Prologue itself: this October. Which is little over two months away.
Awesome news, as it finally adds a bit of weight to the SIXAXIS! I expect multiple things to happen after this announcement:
- Sony will sell so many of the new SIXAXIS that GameStops the world over will have to offer the old model in two to three controller bundles to sell them.
- A large amount of developers will release downloadable updates through the PlayStation Network to offer rumble for their titles. Specifically those with high-selling IPs.
I plan on personally selling my current SIXAXIS to a GameStop the day before these beauties are launched in the US. Anyone else doing the same thing?
