update:

hey guys guess what, its me again.

This time with "confirmation" from EDGE MAGAZINE - Special Wii feature from latest magazine, page 9.

Quote: "because it does not require batteries, the Nunchuk feels unusually light in operation, although the inclusion of a rumble facility ensures that it has a tactile quality."


hmmmm, the plot thickens? Final confirmation? Make of it what you will.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry if old, I did a quick scan as everyone (myself included) seemed under the impression the remote has rumble - the nunchuk does NOT.

I read Gamesmaster today who made it very clear that the nunchuk also has rumble - so both hands have independent rumble and motion sensing capabilities. Apparently it feels absolutely awesome playing Zelda in this way.

That is all - lock if old! :)


ok guys - exact words:

"and this level of immersion goes beyond just controller movement. Both the Wii remote and nunchuk attachment have their own rumble function, so theres feedback in both your hands while you battle."
pretty blatant if you ask me, not like they hyped it up as some huge scoop, its just stated as a fact in the paragraph.

I dont know where...maybe those black blocks, maybe thats not a final model of the nunchuk. Certainly doesnt look it. Just repeating what I read.

and yeh gamesmaster sucks, but its one of the big name mags here, I read it for free and they were pretty explicit that it had rumble.

If not true, it should be. Stereo rumble has been a Sony advantage for years, but it seems the concept would be much cooler (and necessary) when each hand would be affected by a separate controller segment.

Hopefully at least some third party will make a rumbling nunchuk? No true stereo rumble, but hey.

EDIT: I guess lack of nunchuk rumble makes for one more advantage the wiimote+wiimote combination still has after learning that the nunchuk had accelerometers, too.

This should be considered complete bullshit until further notice. See: Ranger X, wonderfuldays

The thread title needs to be editted. Or the entire thread should be locked. Or maybe both.

What would constitute a confirmation? A different mag reporting it perhaps? Gamesmaster is the biggest selling multiformat mag in Britain (or was) and this is a pretty obvious statement. It'd be weird if the journo had imagined rumble in his left hand, or felt the need to make it up to spice up his report.

Unless you are assuming I'm the one making it up.

Was that from an hands-on impression?

The final devkit doesn't have a nunchuck with rumble:

There's no rumble in the Nunchuck unless my final kit and test console isn't the final one?

Common guys...
And there's no rumble to be found inside the nunchuck:
So who should I believe? This forum itself a more reliable source.

You must also understand that journalists are not always that professional...

Its from their Zelda article, quite a good article actually, found it more useful explaining how things work than others I've read.

So is this true or not?

I always wondered if Sony is bullshitting or not about not being able to add rumble because of the accellerometers in the pad. Because the nunchuck has the same thing inside and also doesn't rumble. If this is true then Sony has no more real excuse.
 

levious

That throwing stick stunt of yours has boomeranged on us.

Why is this thread still going when even Nintendo will tell you there is no rumble in the Nunchuk???
Well it was kinda quiet for 11 minutes until you bumped it :D

Someone oughta spam gamesmaster's email or phoneline for a reason for this kind of reporting if its untrue.

Don't be silly. The rumble comes through the wire.
That's actually very much possible. I mean on GC, you could feel the rumble in the wire of the controller almost just as well as in the actual controller. So maybe the guy in question (in the magazine) just felt the rumble from the actual Wiimote, and thought it came from the nunchuk?
