Nyko Zero beats the DualShock 3 to the market, is first PS3 controller with rumble

PS3 users have been waiting for a controller that rumbles for way too long now. Sony tried to tell everyone that rumble was a previous-gen feature and that SIXAXIS was the way of the future. However, they changed their tune (shortly after settling their legal issues with the patent holder for their rumble feature, though I'm sure the two events were completely unrelated) and and announced the DualShock 3. While we've still got another month before it hits stores, Sony has been beaten to the punch by Nyko.

While the Nyko almost resembles the old boomerang controller that was shown with the PS3 back in the days before launch, it features that one single feature that PS3 owners have desired in their controller. Of course I'm talking about rumble. Don't worry though, you still get the accelerometer that made the SIXAXIS so special too.

If you're worried about battery life, it will go 25 hours on a single charge, and can get more juice via USB. You can pick it up in silver, white and black for $60 right now.
