    oh? i thought it was due to them adding last minute motion sensors and the rumbling would of affected/damaged it. Oo

    Why cant they use Rumble while Microsoft/Nintendo can?

    That's because it isn't a pointing device, and because of it's design. I mean you can't really use a playstation controller as a baseball bat.

    Is it just me or did you contradict yourself?

    No, because the "Tilt" is motion sensing. It just doesn't recognize all the motions a wiimote does. This is because of the reason I stated before. The ps3 controller would not work with it's design in the way a wiimote does. It can't be held multiple ways.

    but yes as far as how they use motion sensors, they work the same, one just not as versatile.

    I'm not sure of the specifics of the trial, but at least with he PS3 they can't use rumble because it would shack the gyroscope and risk screwing up the plane your flying or the car your driven in whatever game you're playing.

    No, it's because they got sued.
    There was a video of a guy using a PS, PS2, or DC (can't remember which one) with a tilt controller and... I think it had rumble. It can be done.
