Force feedback coming to the Playstation 3, but not directly from Son

Remember SplitFish? They are the company that showed off the Playstation 2 controller that looked similar to the Wii remote/nunchuck. SplitFish is currently working on the SensorFX a force feedback system that provides mechanical feedback on different parts of the controller. The device simply plugs into the Sixaxiss USB port. SplitFish is optimistic that SCEA will work with them to release to release the SensorFX. Ken Tetterington the president of SplitFish said, “SplitFish is devoted to bringing our controller technologies such as the SensorFX and EdgeFX to the PlayStation 3 and other next generation gaming systems so that consumers can have the most exciting, immersive gaming experience possible. We have met recently and continue discussions with Sony Computer Entertainment of America specifically related to SplitFish’s up coming PS3 gaming technology portfolio. However, SCEA have not, as they have stated, yet seen our very recent force feedback technology. We have a very amiable relationship with Sony. Our goal is to work in cooperation with Sony to provide a win-win situation for PlayStation 3 owners.” SplitFish really needs SCEA’s blessing for a deal to work out. If SCEA backs them up game developers might consider adding in extra code to support the SensorFX force feedback system.
