Sol, you didn't read the article at all. Sony's propaganda and the truth are two different things. There is plenty of room for the force-feedback technology, but Sony is shying away from using it due to the more than 90 million dollars they owe in a lawsuit over patent rights. Now, Immersion could still produce PS3 controllers with force-feedback, but I doubt they will.
Your right, I skimmed over the article and didnt give it $0.02. But I see where it says that now. However, I'm sure Sony still wont include it, and will continue to use that excuse (I mean, when has Sony ever admitted being wrong?).
You make a valid point. Sony has already lied many times to its customers. I don't see them stopping anytime soon. Anyway, if you were curious, I am a Sony customer, but I am a little smarter than many when it comes to seeing past their ******** (for lack of a better word).
