Dubbed the Arcade Stick Inazuma, this is, well, an arcade-style stick, but with a cool feature: Wrist rumble.

While using this GameTech stick, you can wear a special strap on your wrist and get force feedback while playing. I've never really thought about wrist rumble before, but I'd certainly be keen to give this a try.

As noted on Inside, the 8-button, 2.5 kilogram stick is for the PS3, and features like programmable macros as well as a headphone jack. Pre-orders are underway in Japan and the stick is priced at around US$90.

I'd like to try out just to see how it feels. I wonder how strong the rumble is and if it is adjustable. Imagine in a FPS when you take a bullet the rumble is so strong to your wrist that it knocks your aim off when trying to retaliate.
