Video showing the PS3's touch-sensitive power and eject buttons.
REVOLUTIONARY!!! This is bound to turn the gaming industry on its ear!!!
Now how about some official specs?...
"Touch with your finger or, well, whatever the hell you wanna touch it with"
Now that's quality play by play.
Now that convinced me! Gimme my PS3 ;)
So just like the buttons on a Microwave... hummmmmm
well i've never seen a microwave with heat sensitive buttons, but...yeah i guess.
Is futuristic! The future is CLOSING IN, with The PLAYSTATION 3! 11/17!
...what is going to happen if they break? I mean, I know how to replace normal push-buttons, I even sell some that would work on any console... but heat-sensitive? I'd have to buy a whole new PS3.
Well, the main power button is a switch in the back. If worse comes to worse, you'll be pressing the playstation logo on your controller to turn it on.
Well that's a good question...but the same question could be asked if the 360 power button broke. Not everyone is mechanically inclined like you.
Also, i've had an old microwave that used the heat sensitive buttons, the 15 year old monster never broke on me.
What if i have cold hands?
oh wait a second i wont be purchasing a ps3...........
if you're hands are that cold then I'm afraid yer dead. ;)
It's a cool idea, i'd find it a bit anoying if something kept touching the buttons though (heat sensors always somehow pic something strange up after a while), it's a bit like my old laptop where the pad was heat sensetive. Eventually it began to lose its efficiency but it was nice nonetheless. If it doesn't break after 5 secs then i like it.
i also enjoy the little features on gaming consoles.
Heat-sensing buttons? What about the zombies and undead? If they don't get to play they'll go on a brains-eating rampage!
Seriously, a power button is not something to spend extra cash on. And repairing it will suck.
so cute, cant wait!
everything about the PS3 is turning heads this is going to be big I tell you big! PS3 only true next gen game this year. LOL I shouldn't of said that huh LOL
