Sweet, rumble functionality for the DS (using the GBA slot)

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Isn't that Metroid Pinball, not Prime?

If you read the impressions over at IGN about it, they say it's the loudest rumble pack they've ever heard   frown

Still.  A rumble pack for the DS?  I'm in!   biggrin

The sad part is that Penny Arcade also backs that claim up.  Nintendo has never done a poor rumble pack, so not sure why they decided to start now.  They both claim it sounds like a chirping.  I am sure that will be annoying.

Yes, the picture in the article linked is for Pinball, but the article itself talks about Prime.  Confusing, no?

Technically there's already a rumble pack out there for the DS - the Wario Twisted pack, which in addition to a gyro also contains rumble functionality (and works great in the DS).  Why not just modify those and give us that awesome gyro functionality while they're at it?

This goes in the GBA slot on the DS right?  If so then I'm OUT!

I won't remove my GBA flash cart until the damn thing disintegrates.

No need to remove it, I'm sure you can play just as well without the rumble pack as those with it.
The only thing that really interests me about the game is that it's playable online. Hope they include bot support as well. Only game I know that has "bots" is Star Wars Episode 3 (on the DS) anyone know of any others?

It lets you transfer your GBA games onto it.  I have 6 or 7 GBA games on my one cart.  It works great with my gaming ADD.

Although:

Etoychest says this:  Anyway, talk seems to have begun flying around almost immediately about how loud the pack is while in use. I put Samus' adventures in pinball land through the paces today, and while it makes noise, it's nothing too distracting. In fact, with the music up (which is awesome, by the way), it really is quite easy to ignore.

And they have a recording so you can hear for your self-- the story link is:
