GamerNode Weekly Recap 2/25 – 3/3 : Now With Last Gen Technology

Sony’s Phil Harrison made a bold statement this past week, calling rumble a "last generation feature." It’s funny, then, that Sony has now settled its lawsuit with rumble developer Immersion. You can expect to see the technology implemented back into Sony’s product line. There was no specific mention of the PS3, but it’s fairly obvious that the Sixaxis will be rumbling soon.

Another major PlayStation 3 development came in form of an announcement that European and Australian PS3s wouldn’t include the PS2 chipset, which is used in PS2 backwards compatibility. Instead, the PS2 BC will be driven through software emulation. We have since found out that thousands of PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles will be compatible from the get go–but how many of those are PS2 games?

Broadband gaming service GameTap has announced plans to launch an independent game label named GameTap Indies. This is great news for those who enjoy playing independently developed games, as well as these developers, which now have an avenue for releasing their titles.

Rockstar’s highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV has yet to see the light of day–gamers have not seen a single screenshot or been given a single detail about the game. But on March 29, a trailer will be released for the game which will undoubtedly reveal something about the game. We hope.
