Gimme Gimme Games writes about why it would be a good thing if Sony's next console has a controller similar to the Wii U Game Pad, and adds why it could also be a bad thing.
No.I don't like how clumsy the Wiipad looks at all.Just give me a normal sized controller in my hands please
I doubt they will go for it and it isn't because of what you said about he Wii U tablet. It would instantly get rid of a big future reason to buy a vita. The Vita has shown it can be used for cross play/controller play thing and remote play but they never have implemented it probably. Maybe they are waiting for the PS4 to do so but having a tablet controller would instantly get rid of this attraction. I see the thing being a normal controller and if you want to play off screen and on the go the Vita will do it via Gaikai
Also Sony needs to actually do some innovation here in gameplay. They can't keep knocking off nintendo, they need to start coming up with new ideas of their own.
@Shnazzyone "Also Sony needs to actually do some innovation here in gameplay. They can't keep knocking off nintendo, they need to start coming up with new ideas of their own." Quite frankly it isn't who does it first but who does it best that really matters. I don't mind them taking other peoples ideas (that is actually how technology improves and gives the consumer a better experience) as long as it is better
gimmegimmegames.com is a sensationalist flamebait game site that wants to be the next Kotaku just read the ridiculous comments posted by Nintendo fans made here.... Sony PlayStation has gone a very long way to differentiate itself to Nintendo since 1994
It's not clumsy at all, it's actually very light and has nice grooves on the back so it settles nicely in your hands. I used to think the pad was gimmicky until I actually picked one up and played a few games with it. I hope it's at the very least an optional type of pad for the next Playstation/Xbox.
This^ , the wiiu pad is a bit unusual initialy bit it quickly becomes second nature , i can't even look at a dual shock or a 360 controller now as they are dramatically inferior. Darksiders 2 you can play with a pro controller (which is the normal controller these gamepad haters clamour for) or off screen play and it's no where near as god as when you have the big map and on the fly inventory on the gamepad. The wiiu is a natural evoloution of the standard controller. It's better in every way , not to mention you have the pro controller if you desire to use such an inferior device. ''Just give me a normal controller'' - good luck doing off screen play with one of those , and good luck doing it with a vita for that matter too , because it doesn't work on pretty much any games.
@kingofwii U : Please change your name. Why? It just can be objective. If i say it people can believe it. But your name screams that you are some fanboy. @ On topic Bulls*it, i have a wii U and as other people already said it fits nice in your hands. And when you play on it with the game zombie U. You really aprecciate the big screen with the radar on it. PS the inventory management is so much better on the wii U.
Wiiu Gamepad is better than the normal one thats for sure mate,also wiiu has both ?
The Wii U game-pad is not "clumsy".
Keyword "looks". You called it clumsy without playing it? that's funny. You do realize that the Playstation controller hasn't changed since Super Nintendo right? throw in 2 sticks and 2 shoulder buttons. At least separate the controller. Throw in a motion sensor... maybe you could have a Wiimote?... I'm quite certain this is actually what the controller is going to be.
Happen. The folks who don't like the Gamepad now and are talking about the Wii U sucking will pull a 180 and say that Sony is doing game pad gaming right. Then they will show a shoddy video of some random dude from 2009 or 10 farting around with Sony's Prototype gamepad and start claiming that Sony did it first and are innovators for pushing the industry forward. It will be like deja vu for the Move's release.
No.I really would prefer a normal controller thanks. Not every one is as two faced as you claim.Many people preferred a normal PS3 controller over the Move as well just the same way many people preferred a normal control scheme over the Wiimote .Besides everyone in the gaming universe talked about how much they thought the PS3 sucked.Not sure why everyone gets so anal about anyone saying anything bad about the Wii U.I am sure the same people who cry all day about the Wii U will be first in line to put down the PS4.
I would prefer to have a smaller screen (iPhone size) just for menus/inventory.. But I don't see it happening because they'll probably use vita in some way.
They will see if it sells for Nintendo first, then they will copy it.
I hope the rumor is just that, a rumor. Having a screen on the controller is as pointless as the second screen on the DS. They are just pointless and gimmicky.
150 million people disagree with your comment about the DS having a second screen being pointless. Do me a favour and look up the word gimmick in the dictionary, and tell me what it means. I'll give you a hint, the word gimmick does not mean anything negative. So stop using it in that context.
mcdonalds also sells billions of big macs. doesnt mean its quality food.just cheap and fast.
Ah, they're fanboys! They worship their consoles like bigots listen to talk radio. Any bad news for Nintendo is music to their ears. They are determined to scoff at the gamepad, that they would sabatoge their own appreciation for games. Not because it's "gimmicky" or "clunky", but because they worry about their own personal brand. They probably should be worried, the industry is changing. Maybe they're just tired of Nintendo being invulnerable. We've seen casualties in this business before, and they're adamant to throw Nintendo to the lions even though their competitors have contributed next to nothing to this industry.
If the PS4 has a controller exactly the same as the Wiiu then I won't be buying it. A little LCD display in the centre and a slightly wider controller I can accept, but NOT the controller of the Wiiu.
So u want a pointless screen that does zero off tv play and special co-op modes u can only achieve on a big screen ?? and panaramic viewpoint on games like zelda like the garden tech demo wow the gamepad is the pad of the future in my eyes and many developers.
Dont lie hahaa
If it's going to be used in a gimmicky way to lure in the casuals then no. If Sony makes it a priority or requirement to implement it in EVERY game and make good use of it, then I wouldn't see a problem. One last thing Sony has to make it a whole lot better than what the Wii U currently has because Nintendo dropped the ball big time. ;)
So it's gimmicky and clunky the way Nintendo implemented it but you'd have no problems if Sony fully implemented it in the PS4? I love double standards.
Don't mind the troll. They just make the industry look more and more juvenile with each passing day.
Yeah but Lol_Wut wasn't the one calling it a gimmick, so how does your statement apply to his?
No. I want a normal controller with no nonsense add ons like a screen or touch panal.
Then better stick to the past gen consoles (PS3/XBox360) my friend.
the only thing I want on the DualShock 4 is the Vita trackpad at the back of the controller.
Probably would kill your Vita's battery in one game because that is why Dualshock is not in the Vita, it would also take away power from the processor and other components just to have it vibrate. I'll pass, I always prefer functionality over things that just don't currently work together. Maybe the Next Vita will have that but I doubt it. I mean hell gaming laptops don't even vibrate for good reason. It's just a waste, a little different though when it's just a controller and not an actual gaming device that is entirely vibrating.

If Sony does not really own ideas copied from smash bros wii mote of time and gamepad or god
I see the nintendo police squad is busy thumbing down people's comments, but I dont care. the idea of having such a controller is mind numbingly stupid. and there is no reason to implement it in the PS4 it would drive up costs of production and leech off the processing power, both of which would hinder its graphical capabilities. it doesnt add any sort of immersion or gameplay enhancement. none of us want to constantly look down at the controller, or play an entire game on it. both options are equally stupid. such a controller would be bulky and inferior, gameplay wise, for just about every genre of games, especially shooters and fighting games. there is no way sony or microsoft are going to do this. by the time December rolls around, the wii u will be utterly stagnant, and there is no reason why sony has to emulate their gimmick.
I disagree wholeheartedly.
