Okay, it was one of the worst-kept secrets in the world, but now it's super-duper official: The dualshock, rumbling controller really is coming to the PlayStation 3. Sony's president Kaz Hirai made the announcement at the company's keynote speech early this morning.

According to Sony, the shakin' joystick "inherits the basic design and functionality of the popular PlayStation controller, while keeping the motion sensitive six-axis sensing system."

It will be available in Japan in November as a separately sold accessory, and introduced to North American and European markets in spring 2008.

We may have known it was coming, but it's good to have confirmation, eh? Click the cut for a full list of games that will support the rumbling controller.
