GN Version 3.1


Back during this week in 1997, the Nintendo 64 got a game that changed the course of consoles in a big way. StarFox 64 shipped with the Rumble Pak, a controller add-on that threw vibration into the ring. Man, I was absolutely blown away by that thing when it came out. I still think it provides the strongest rumble of any rumbling controller. As you all know, the Rumble Pak was such a success that hardware makers added rumble into their controllers with pretty much every console that released thereafter. Now, it’s not just an extra, it’s a standard feature!
