    Rumble isn’t in the PS3 because MS either bought the rights to the tech or invested in the company that does.

    Some great points made here. I fully agree that $ony is FORCING people into buying their garbage and not giving better alternatives. The only thing I was not happy with was that I could not hear the entire podcast. :( At 33:40 of the podcast, it stopped and I did not get to hear but half of it. I would really like to hear the rest so hopefully, this gets fixed soon.

  • Try downloading it all first, maybe it was just a small drop causing it to stop. There is a download link if you look under the player.

    Glad you are enjoying it though :)

    Great podcast James. Looking forward to the next!!

  • Thanks Jason.

  • Excellent blogcast, guys (good work James). :)

    Some very interesting points and issues addressed and I found myself agreeing/disagreeing as it went on. My co-workers were getting worried and wondering what I was listening to…

    Looking forward to listening to part 2 next.
