According to this article
on Kotaku, the scan of a UK magazine shows that the rumble feature in the Wii's controller is now gone. Replacing the rumble function is a speaker referencing Shigeru Miyamot as confirming that it is indeed gone. Is this a big deal? If true, it's now the same as the PLAYSTATION 3 controller in that both will be missing a rumble feature and both having some motion sensing capability in one form or another. You know that if this was about the PLAYSTATION 3, there would be a big uproar in the Internet community. We'll know soon enough if this is true but as of now, the Wii-mote seems to be rumble-less.
