DualShock 3 unveiling at TGS?

Rumours suggest PS3 dev kits receive rumble support

All eyes are on Sony whipping out the rumble-enabled version of the SixAxis controller at the Tokyo Game Show this weekend, as rumours reach a climax on the net.

Word is that Sony will showcase the new controller, along with a new version of PS3 firmware that enables XBM browsing during gameplay.

It wouldn't surprise us. Developers reportedly received rumble-enabled controllers themselves at the beginning of August, and despite Sony denying it, strong evidence suggests those controllers to have been in developers hands for around six weeks now.

CVG contacted Sony UK, who knew nothing of Sony Japan's plans for TGS. Expect more from Kaz Hirai's keynote speech this Thursday.
