I think this is a very NARROW and obvious Fany Boy kind of mentality. Like I said, I loved my PS2.
PS2 is outselling the PS3 in the place PS3 is selling best - Japan. In fact its the only place PS3 is selling "ok" because its being outsold by both PS2 and Wii which have "Rumble" .. Xbox 360 which has only sold 200k Plus units in Japan is the number one seller worldwide. 11 million units as of now ( in one year ) ..
Rumble simply isn't going away. Im an open minded man and I love technology. Lets also use our heads. A Sixaxis type controller was built for 360 by some hobbyist and demo'd to show how simple, easy and cheap the technology is for PS3's controller.. It was a obvious defiant stab by Sony who thought if "They" didn't do it ( Rumble ) the world would crumble into a ball and everyone would follow. It's just not happening.
Rumble is needed for sports games like baseball to let you know secret plays when you play against a friend on the same console on the same tv.. Its very cool to feel and "know" you're being hit from behind by a bullet instead of just seeing a flashing red on the screen.. Its nice to feel the road in a racing game.
Removing force feedback ( rumble ) takes away from where we want to go - to make the game more real feeling. Before rumble what did we have ? NOTHING !!
What do we have with PS3 ? Nothing !
Yes, theres that silly motion sensing crap in the controller.. that might not go away.. thing is.. ANYONE can do that in the future, including MS..
Sony can do something nice for its followers - and people who wanted to buy a PS3, but won't -- add rumble just by settling that silly lawsuit.
