Sony has confirmed to Eurogamer that all PlayStation 2 titles that support rumble and are compatible with the PlayStation 3 will also rumble if you use the new DualShock 3 pad.

During a test last week with the new controller, Eurogamer noted that PS2 rumble seemed to be disabled. Since then, PS3 firmware 2.0 has quietly introduced support.

The news from Sony adds to anecdotal evidence from eager importers who reported success getting rumble out of games like Re and Katamari Damacy.

PlayStation 3 games that already support the pad include MotorStorm, Resistance: Fall of Man and Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction.

The official European and US release date for DualShock 3 is spring 2008.
