Force Feedback on PS3? Not So Much
Posted by XanTium | 4-1-2007 23:38 EST

 
From 1up.com:


Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed that there would be no supported force feedback technology with its PlayStation 3. They told 1UP the following:
"All PS3 games are programmed for the SIXAXIS which doesn't have force feedback, therefore the force feedback in the wheels won't be recognized."

well that sucks... wont any of the next gen consoles truly support force feedback?

-PS3 - not at all
-360 - only on the official MS wheel which is way over priced and reportedly crap quality for the price.
-Wii - their idea of a "wheel" is a plastic circle that snaps around the remote... LAME

this seems like the worst generation for hardcore racing fans yet.

I have to agree. As a nascar fan I was looking forward to a good next-gen racing game in nascar 2008. No force feedback with a wheel kinda sux.

I dunno, twisted, I'm loving my MS racing wheel. As I'm not a hardcore racer (I love racing games, but I tend to suck at them), I don't have much to compare it to, but since racing with it I've won several races that I would've lost at on a 360 controller.

I can't comment on the price, as I traded in a recently-launched Sony console that was doing little more than collecting dust for it (among other things [ + (A) : 1 2 |]) ph34r.gif

I really can't wait for Forza 2 to come out now. sad.gif

This totally blows, Gran Tourismo with no force feedback, WTF.

I went thru two microsoft wheels before I gave up on it, the build quality is terible and it doesn't have full rotation. I have the logitech for my ps2 and it is far superior in so many ways, and two years old. I would have much rather them made a quality wired controller than a wireless one that you still have to plug in twice.

Honestly, I don't really care about force feedback. I didn't use it on my 360 even before I bought my PS3. I remember back in the 64 days (stone of agony in Zelda: OoT biggrin.gif) it was kind of cool, but I'd rather play without it now. I can see how this is a disappointment for some people though.
