It's Too Soon to Write Off the PS4 Controller Prototype's New Functionality

1UP - Images of the new system's controller have surfaced, showing two major additions.

Eh? I wasn't aware that anyone had written it off. Is this by chance someone taking internal chatter and mistaking it for the general consensus of opinion? This says more about 1up than the controller.

This is the ish im talking about... Expect more articles relating to "failed" after Feb 20th. Everyone used Sony meeting to get hits. After the 20th, flamming will increase.

Losing the Start and Select buttons in favour of the touchpad seems like a great idea and it utilises the controller space more.

The start/select are still there -_-
They're on either side of the touchpad, just very dark and hard to see.

EDIT: Actually, now that I look at it again, I only see the select button (unless they did away with it and just left a square start/pause button?).

say what? Who's written it off? It's not even been announced or demoed yet?

I'm sure the new functions will have their uses (more than Sixaxis did).

Think they're testing the waters to see if its still popular to rag on Sony? Got to know which track to take come the 21st. Something tells me this won't be it.

1up was one of the first websites i visited when i was new to the internt!!!
i have not gone there in yeeeeears.....and this articale just reminded me why. Q_Q


Right there with you, just I wasn't new to internet but my english was a lot worse before, so I only really got into bigger gaming sites around 2002... Man I simply couldn't understand how a company that gave us such a good magazine could have such a mess for gaming site...

Of course EGM would soon after go to the crapper too, but I remember like back in the 90's we would get all excited over a friend who got an imported copy, just to spend the whole day trying to read it with an english-portuguese dictionary, and after that when we got our localized EGM magazine (that turned to the same crapper not long after either... Now it's called EGW I believe)... Good old days!

Had no idea it was already tossed in the trash. I'm very interested to see what they do with it, and I think it looks slightly better fitted for my hands.
