One of gamers' biggest beefs with the PlayStation 3 will soon be a thing of the past. At the kickoff press conference for the Tokyo Game Show, Sony Computer Entertainment President Kaz Hirai confirmed longstanding rumors that a rumble-ized version of the PS3 Sixaxis controller is on the way.

Munich's most exciting car in years will remind us why we love BMWs. BMW puts its best engine, the twin turbo 3-liter straight six, into its smallest coupe, the 1-series. Previously, the 1-series hasn't been available in the U.S., and used smaller engines, but for the 2008 U.S. launch, BMW pumps up the power considerably.
BMW enters the crossover market with the big, burly X6. The X6 is a cross between the 6-series coupe and the X5, approximating the body style of the former and the underpinnings of the latter. With the unveiling of the X6, BMW also showed off a hybrid version.
Ever dream of an S Class with a four-cylinder engine? The F700 research vehicle uses an innovative engine, called the DiesOtto, that burns gasoline but works like a diesel. It is amazingly efficient, with enough power to move a large sedan.
Alfa Romeo is ready to re-enter the U.S. on the tail of this hot ride. With a carbon fiber body and a 4.7-liter V-8, the 8C is expected to go from 0 to 60 mph in around 4.5 seconds. Quantities will be limited, with only 100 being imported to the U.S.
What's the fastest 911 ever? This one. With 530 horsepower, the GT2 only takes 3.7 seconds to go from 0 to 62 mph and has a top speed of 204 mph.
Finally, VW's Tiguan crossover is here. VW felt the need to offer an SUV-type car that was smaller than the Touareg. The Tiguan is no surprise, as it has been shown off in concept form long before now.
