DualShock 3 to be unveiled at TGS?

sixaxisSomething seemingly abandoned (apparently for good reason) from the Sixaxis PS3 controller is its vibration/rumble capabilities. Time to dry the tears away because according to 1UP’s latest podcast, DualShock 3 will be unveiled at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, which starts this Thursday.

In addition to the DualShock 3 announcement, Sony is also planning to showcase its 2.0 firmware, which, among other things, will include the ability to run XMB tools from any game.

Upon the PS3’s debut, Sony explained that the removal of the vibration feature was due to interference with the controller’s motion-sensing capabilities. But, of course, critics pointed to the Wiimote and said, "what gives?!"

Touch-sensitive technology developer, Immersion Corporation, also expressed similar doubts and even successfully sued Sony for patent infringement of thier rumble feature

So in a case like this, a wait for Thursday will clear the air.
