What if the controller for the PlayStation 4 is the Vita?
I wont be as it is missing big analogue sticks and no R3/L3 and L2/R2 triggers. It still will be an important thing (with Gaikai) but not the controller. If I was Sony I would bundle it with the PS4 and introduce a subscription service for this pack. 3-5 year contract at X amount (nothing really substantial £10-£25) per month with a starting fee of around £50 while offering a standalone PS4 and Vita. It works very well for mobiles and it could be very attractive to a big proportion of the market who cannot afford a PS4 out right. It could mean mean PS Vita's in peoples hands making developing for it a better option and developing features that both systems can use
Back touch screen can be used for L2 and R2
Still doesn't work as well so that's irrelevant. They won't be doing this.
Thats not a bad idea. Maybe people who have PS Plus subs could get a discount on contract fees. Either way, Sony has proven that they understand value so they'll find a way to make the PS4 affordable to the masses.
"Never been first, never been cheapest." Xbox is for the masses.
They could potentially do a redesign when PS4 surfaces or some kind of add on like 3DS has. I think there is a lot of potential for dual screen controllers. If you enjoyed DS you will know what I mean.
I wouldn't mind some form of it but still keeping the main form of DS3. Better triggers though.
It should have been done along time ago. You have some games that you can use the PSP for to play video games. They should make it a standard for sports games where you have to pick plays. Would be great for Madden.
*sigh* no. the vita is the vita, it is not the next playstation controller.
Some integration is to be expected, however.
its not but might b able 2 be used as 1
The vita will not be the PS4 control, that just wouldn't happen. I believe that you will be able to use it as a control though and it will serve a more integrated purpose in the next gen.
Well, it would be a very expensive one. And the analogue sticks are crap in comparison to the dual shock, a definite downgrade. So no, I don't think it will.
Dumbest and most senseless article on this website in awhile. It should be required for journalists to educate themselves on business before.coming up with such rubbish.
I laughed out loud at how dumb this theory is. These journalists are trying so hard to speculate they're no longer making any sense.
Dont flatter them,DO NOT call them jurnalist cause they are not PERIOD :)
no, except if they reduce the price much much more. I dont agree with the gimmick idea people have of the Vita.
I wouldn't mind having, that feature as a option. As long, as I can map out my own button layout, which would also be a nice feature as a option.
9 times out of 10... it's going to be an option. Don't even have to read this article to know that.
I Don't think so the PS Vita's analog sticks are small
The analog sticks won't be good for first person shooters. Unless you want to swipe the back or use to the touch screen to run or throw a grenade. Plus they're a little too small for intense play in my opinion.
The analog sticks on the Vita are much better then the mushy dualshock sticks.
The Vita will be used as a controller but not main option. The analog sticks are to small and its missing shoulder buttons PlayStation gamers are accustomed to.
This is the PS4 controller. @ Inevitable Shitstorm It's only a joke.
Easy . just make the remote controle as a controller and you will be able to enter everything and play any game . you wont need to update games for it or anything like that . hacked ps3 proved this so i think it will be easy for the ps4 ..
if yes... only optional.
NO. However i believe that the connectivity between the Vita and the PS4 will be much better than the Vita and the PS3 with its limited remote play feature. Im guessing that the Vita will be able to play PS4 games off screen just like the Wii U.
Change a few things on the PS Vita and I use it as a PS4 controller. It has potential and hopefully if used as an optional controller would bring some needed attention to the Vita.
Not really on Topic, but today I saw Rampage Jackson playing his Vita at the UFC presser...that was pretty cool...lol
Price alone says no.
I thiught vita wouldve been bundled witg the PS3 as a second controller.
