My PS3 Contoller Won’t Vibrate?


Alright so yesterday i bought a Dualshock 3 PS3 Controller. Came home, charged it and all.went to go play NHL 09 and never felt any rumble. I checked controller settings and it says Vibration is on.is there anything else i should check for or do before i return it?

  1. Not all games have rumble functionality. If you wanna try if the rumble works on your DS3, try the MGS4 game.

  2. some games do not support dualshok vibration

    check in the box in the front and if it says dualshock compatible with a little pic of the control then it is if not, it isn’t

  3. because the game doesn’t support rumble. or maybe you haven’t incountered a situation yet that activates the rumble. that doesn’t mean it isn’t working.

  4. Your controller is working fine,it is the game.NHL 09 doesn’t support Dualshock 3 Rumble feature.The front of the game cover should say that if it is rumble compatible.Are you sure that you bought a Dualshock 3.Look on the top of the controller and it will tell you.If it is a Sixaxis then it will just say Sixaxis,but if it is Dualshock 3 then it will say Sixaxis and Dualshock 3 both.

    Good luck!

  5. Ok, i dont think NHL 09 has rumble. Here are some games that do, FIFA 09 demo, Motorstorm, WarHawk. if you dont have them just try a few games to see if your controller vibrates on any of them. COD4 doesnt have rumble by the way.
