PS3 Controller with Rumble in Development

Many have suspected that since the agreement [with Immersion ], Sony will have been working on a new controller with rumble support. We can now confirm that this is the case. We've heard from two independent sources at Sony that they have been working on prototypes for several months. Officially, the corporate line is still "no comment". Unofficially, Sony is facing some difficulties with battery life; i.e. Between the rumble and the wireless support, the batteries are draining too fast to be acceptable for consumers.
Incidentally, no mention of the rumble having an adverse affect on the motion sensitivity (as Sony PR claimed, but was refuted by Immersion).
