Sony's video game unit and Immersion have ended their patent fight and signed a deal that opens the door to putting the latter's Rumble technology into the former's PlayStation 3, the companies said Thursday.

Rumble technology makes a video game controller vibrate so that action on the screen seems more real--for example, when a race car is off the track--and has been a key feature in controllers for Sony's market-dominating PlayStation 2 console.


After what seems like years of Sony feeding everyone crap about how Rumble didn't work (including press releases put out last week), Sony has finally all-but admitted it for the crap it was. I'm personally glad, and look forward to what it will bring.
