At his Tokyo Game Show keynote, Sony's Kaz Hirai has confirmed the DualShock 3 controller for the PlayStation 3, available in Japan in November as a separately sold accessory and in North American and European in Spring 2008.

Gamasutra was on the scene in Tokyo to hear Hirai's announcement on this topic, and his keynote commented with regard to this development: "In the PS3 we have the SIXAXIS sensor... however the users had requested that we resurrect the vibration function to this sensor. At the beginning we thought this would be difficult technologically... however we have been able to overcome this difficulty so today we are proud to announce the DualShock 3 controller."

According to Hari, there are ten DualShock 3 titles present and playable at Tokyo Game Show: Imabiki, G1 Jockey, Dynasty Warriors 6, Devil May Cry 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Echochrome, Toy Home and Metal Gear Online.

Hirai continued: "As soon as the vibration function was added to our platform we had announced this to our partners, however there was very little time before TGS to give them a chance to add this function to their games."

He also added: "As for existing titles, through the network you can enjoy updating so you can truly enjoy the vibration features."

[UPDATE: Sony has released a list of current and forthcoming titles that will be compatible with the vibration feature, which includes the following:
