The name for Sony's new line of PlayStation controller. A legal dispute with Immersion corp. meant Sony had to ditch its rumble feature and the 'Dual Shock' name of yore. The 'SIXAXIS' refers to the 6 axises of movement (up/down, back/forth, left/right) detected by the controllers built in tilt sensors, the controller has been critizised for being too light but who gives a shit
Sony named the new contoller SIXAXIS purely for the opportunity to spin the text around in its ads (palindrome); the word has to be written in CAPITALS...
