Sony has patented a new controller that is a hybrid of the DualShock and Move controls.
The Move itself might be alright, but the button layout on it was HORRIBLE. Oh dear god, when I tried using one, I just put it down after about five minutes and walked away.
awesome idea. i know the final product will look amazing and be comfortable to hold. i love the move controller in killzone 3 , resistance 3 and a few other games. i once hated the ps move and thought it was rubbish. i bought the move and nav-con and thought after using it for two hours that it was a waste. i started to use it again and decided to try to get through all of the killzone 3 campaign on normal. i started liking it after a few configuration to the sensitivity and loved it about a quarter way through killzone 3. the button layout is good and i haven't a problem with the placement. i wish more games had move support. its very accurate and i think its amazing. it would be nice to have one controller that can also be used as a move and nav con. i dont want ps4 to have 3 different controller like the wii u. i hope this is for ps4 instead of ps3
I think that controller is a brilliant idea. If this turns out to be true, let's hope Sony's approach to this controller isn't half-arsed as the current Move.
@akuma I don't understand how your comment is in any way related to Snookies12's comment.
Really , In some games i found move to be incredibly accurate, better than Wii motion plus, however in some games i found it to be pretty much broken, rendering some games almost unplayable. The way i've seen it motion control depends on how well the developer uses it e.g, Red Steel was half assed, Metroid Prime 3 was phenomenal This idea sounds incredible however, I wonder how it will look.
what??? the two balls at the top will get in the way of the index figure natural resting positions and where the trigger buttons would be,, how is this going to be comfortable to hold!
" awesome idea. i know the final product will look amazing and be comfortable to hold." Gah...like...F this Imma go to bed.
Oh, shut up and use it again. The button layout on Move is fine.
That's really friendly, telling me to shut up. I'm just simply saying why didn't they just map the same controls a normal Dualshock has to the Move? Would it really have been that hard?
Yes, it would have been, given the Move's shape. As far as the shut up thing goes, it's not exactly like me actually telling you to shut up. It's more of a dealwithit.jpg thing. Ya know?
Looks like a reworking of a really old patent they had about 4 - 5 years ago. It would make sense to package both experiences in with one controller.
yeah I remember sony's break apart motion controller.
Yeah I remember a video of the breakapart ds. The guy doing the demo was showing how you could simulate climbing up a ladder with it.
OMG, that controller has some balls.
Two, to be exact. I'd take the regular controller over this though, if it's going to be a separate product that's fine, but I wouldn't want my PS4/PS3 to be packaged with one of these by default. Not everyone's interested in motion gaming.
If this is the controler for the PS4, the main official controler then I'll wait for a classic one I DON'T want to pay for crap that I'm not going to like while playing games, keep this stuff seperate.
I just want an option for a wand with a joystick, so left handed people can play games that involve walking comfortability.
please sony just stick to making a more powerful console and leave the innovation to nintendo. i cant believe some ppl think this controler looks cool, you dont have to like everything your favorite company makes
Shit is a gimmic, more processing time on controls and movememt = delay. This isnt for anything competitive, pure gimmick. When they design a controller that has better response time than what we have already, then it'll be a viable option. Waste of $$$
Um... ya, I don't know sony.
Then you're both on equal footing as Sony doesn't know you either.
I agree. It looks stupid.
probably the Duelshock 4, aka PS4 controller
Sometimes, Miyamoto creates patents under Sony's name, just to screw with them. Right? RIGHT?!?
That looks ugly with the two spheres on the top.
They patented it. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll produce it.
exactly, this happens all the time.
Just means they'll sue anyone who uses spheres from now on.. Oh wait, they're not Apple.
i had this idea but with a touch screen in the middle
add a rear touchpad = more win!!!
you said touch rear (honk honk)
Damn Nintendo for stealing your idea!
