Is Nintendo getting ready to rumble?

WhenNintendo launched a chunk of grey plastic in 1997, the gaming world changed forever.

True, the Rumble Pak wasn’t pretty, but it added some arcade rough-and-tumble to the N64. More than 10 years later, it seems that the games giant could be getting ready to rumble again. This week an old Nintendo patent was apparently updated to include a rumble-feedback feature for a handheld device. So will the DS 2.0 be filled with good vibrations? Only time will tell.
