Check out this video and decide for yourself! What's for sure is that we simply cannot wait for E3.
Wow, it that simple? Not bad.
it looks very easy to use and make i this is much better than the wiimote, because it can be used as a controller aswell The New SixMotionAxisShock 3
Lets hope nintendo does not sue sony... i dont want in-game XMB delayed!!!
i don't fink they could even try to sue Sony, because they controllers are soo different and this one breaks apart. they would probably make this for PS4, thats if Nintendo or Microsoft don't make it first since there new console are gonna come out before PS4
I honestly don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
Yeah, that was pretty simple. SOny should also work on a controller that would be able switch the D-Pad and analog stick with eachother. That way, if you like the positioning of the 360 analogs, you would be able to switch them and have that layout, if you like the way it is now, you can keep it like that. That would be cool.
That looks immense!!! Great how they are using the original controller design with such a kool function! I'll wait for news on this... if they do announce it, do they really expect people to buy dualshock 3's? That controller really exited me! I hope its not a fake! It looks dam realistic tho.
im buyin it when does it come out.
This all looks cool initially but remember how the sixaxis lead to all those crappy in game gimmicks? The grass is always greener... Think about it...
i already posted this earlier in another n4g article in the comments, look at page 1, comment 1.6: http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
I have seen this video before, but never actually took into acount that the controller he's looks similar to a Sixaxis/Dualshock 3. Edit: The company is called In2Games and that is only a prototype Dualshock 2 controller to demonstrate their concept, but who knows? http://www.computerandvideo...
Now I remember where I saw the xbox break apart controller. :) I thought it was a fricken good idea, but MS never did it
nice research. it appears most people seem to think this has something to do with sony or is sony designed or backed. its just some company making controllers that look like the ps3 controller or the xbox controller that break apart and work like the wii. bubbles..
in2games are working for/with sony http://www.gamespot.com/ps2... they made those motion-sensing controllers for the ps2 so they are probably working on this break apart controller for the ps3 also.
...or poach their creative team. That's what Sony should do with In2Games. Problem is, they also make peripherals for the wii & xbox. damn Anyhows... Sony should be taking what these guys/gals have done seriously. They don't need to copy the wiimote exactly. The snap apart Playmote would be better direction to take as you have the option or sticking with the traditional controller or going all out with two handed motion control. Next Gen for sure.
Yeah you totally get bubbles for that.
I could, maybe, get into this one. It's not a huge departure from what we have now, but it's innovative enough to have merit and could easily appeal to the masses. Not bad, not good, but interesting none the less. Better than the wiimote by far.
if it's responsive that is,,,, and I m happy that it is not a bland rip off of the wii-mote
Who ever says that this is wii mote copy has obviously no life, other than going around and hating Sony in this case. I didnt know Wii mote can break apart, someone inform me if it is possible. Very interesting idea.
it takes 1/2 second to break apart the controller...but imagine reuniting the 2 parts..could be problematic
yup but sony will find a way to fix that problem =)
Strong magnets that don't attract what's inside :3
real?? i hope so.. now theres another reason to buy a ps3
WHAT?!!?! WHAT!?!?! WHAT!?!?!? THAT SH!T IS MADD CRAZY SOn!
The One's that Just F&%#$&@ play games.
best part is that there is no stupid cable joining the 2 halves!
You like having the wii nunchuck attached to the wiimote?
they just like to disagree. Its fun for them and its actually a compliment because it stinks of fear, resentment, envy and loathing lol;)
I love it when people disagree without having the balls to explain it.
bad not bad at all. i dont think sony should steal the wii shape this version seems to be ok. its still the ds but it breaks into a wii type controller. im impressed i shall be getting this controller. Edit. you disagree cuz sony's innovation seems better Hmmmmmmmm or you disagree cuz your just a sad fanboy i wonder which one
SONY doesn't need to steal any controller design, and that thing could be just perfect cause we'll all have the old-school DualShock, SixAxis and now two "Wii nunchuks" at the same time on-the-fly durning gameplay. Imagine dual-shooting in a FPShooter to two different directions on the screen at the same time!, in a positive matter this just adds more possibilities to future games...
Looks like fun but i really can't imagine how they could solve the "reuniting the controller parts" issue. Just imagine you're in the heat of an battle and your trying to reconnect the controller parts without watching. This could lead to some unintended control problems, i guess... but on the opposite there are very great gameplay opportunities.
or some superb acrobatics the ds3 will show when flying out through the window
lol if sony stayed with the boomerang design it would have come straight back at ya
lol...that is pretty funny!
you've been pressing buttons on your controller without watching it, come on...
I just bought a damn DS3. Unless we get free upgrades then screw it
if they announce this at E3 then i bet they will show it off with god of war 3, Swinging your blades around would be sick
Thats what i'm talking about -> very great gameplay opportunities!
That is assuming that Sony improve motion control over what Nintendo has done. For those of you that haven't ever played a Wii - motion controls don't work as well as you think they do. In fact I'd go as far as to say motion is pretty lame IMO. Accelerometers as they currently exist are rubbish. The IR functionality of the Wii mote is much better Metroid 3 and MoH2 use a bounding box rather than motions for aiming and shooting. FPSs seem to work well. Nintendo accelerometers so far have only achieved a swipe and translate move dynamic. i.e. no real motion. See Wii Sports, Zelda, Red Steel, Force Unleashed. You get decent little bits of motion here and there. e.g. for unlocking doors in Metroid, in zacknWiki, but as a main aspect of a game i.e. swinging a sword/lightsaber it hasn't been done very well. Maybe Sony with improve motion control from what it currently is, but if they don't then I would rather not have it. IR I'd like ... motion ... rubbish.
Context SENSITIVE attacks! meaning it!
Sixaxis, then DS3 and now this garbage, Sony just cant seem to make a decent controller
if ps3 controllers were garbage, then xbox 360 controllers are pieces of crappy shi# since ps controllers are better the the xbox 360's. (that is of course IF the ps3 controller is garbage)
a decent controller? Its the same good controller since Ps1. Fans wanted the controller to stay the same with the PS3, and they did it. That new controller is not "needed" really, it's just an "add" if you want to play differently, you buy or not. Wii made WiiFit, you dont have to buy it if you dont like..
that sh*t does look crazy though..
sooo... motion sensing is a gimmick in the Wii, but its pretty awesome on PS3? you guys are joking right?
I don't speak for anyone else but motion control is a gimmick on the Wii and it would also be a gimmick on the PS3. It doesn't work well in most cases. And before you say it works well in Metroid (like your avatar) I would say that the small functions do (opening door locks, grappling hook etc.) see above post, but most of Metroid i.e. the turning, aiming and shooting bounding box is all IR. IR is great. I'd have IR for my PS3, but not motion. The best motion controls that I've seen so far only involve a shake. Something quick and easy that works everytime. Something that you don't have to take your fingers of the buttons to do. i.e. Mario Galaxy - a shake to spin attack or to use the star paths. Galaxy got it right, less is more. GTA4 - a shake to reload a weapon.
who refuses to move with the times. But to the enlightened open-minded gamer, motion control is the future of controllers. The Wiimote is the ONLY next-gen thing about the Wii.
They didn't sacrifice online play, and hardware power, JUST to get some gimmicky lame controller. They are allowing an optional controller, that works like a REAL controller, and a Wii-Mote, at the same time. All the best games on the Wii play better with a Gamecube controller.
The good thing about is that its just optional and "on the fly", no resetting, no pause, just split/bind and play.
Interesting but not for me. I (as a wii & ps3 owner) for one am ready for motion control to fade away. I allways disable motion control when i am able to do so, the only time i find it remotly fun is minigames in a group setting, but that is a very very minimal part of gaming for me. I'm fine with the technology being their, but not with it being forced on us like it was on the ps3 when it first game out
as it is included in a traditional controller. Developers are being force to find ways to use it. Had Sony just gone for a complete new controller, the Playmote then developers would have found it easy to implement the controls into their games - especially when looking and aiming cold be as fast as using a Mouse.
hope they talk more about the new controller at e3
THIS IS NOT A SONY PRODUCT!!! it is a prototype made by a company called N2Games. there is an xbox looking prototype as well. dont be expecting some announcement from sony anytime soon about a new controller. all props go to kareem who posted a link to the story up at post number 2.
It will be too hard to do D DF F D DF F + P shin hadouken or a LP LP F LK HP Akuma Raging demon... or a Square, Triangle, Circle, X -break- X, Circle, Square, Triangle, Square, Circle, X, X, Triangle -break- Triangle, Square, Triangle Bryan fury combo of death... with that controller
then use a normal pad instead, lol
AHHH SNAP! No pun intended.
old news...this was being talking about earlier..this year, a guy found a post like this, hold on..ok here it is: http://www.n4g.com/up/Actio... its the link right above my post..just letting people know that sony was already doing this
Where would the battery go?
I dont know if i would use it, but it looked cool. I like the original controls, i have a little hard adopting to the wiimote. Especially since they dont work perfect, neither the wiimote or the sixaxis are 100% accurate when it comes to motion sensing. And that is a big problem for me, i want it precise or else i loose my skills =(
are people really going to buy these ?
but I'm actually hoping the controller gets an esthetic upgrade.
As a Wii fan, I think this is brilliant. Keeps the hardcore and casual satisfied.
All you guys just know this is a fake and nothing Sony is working on. Its just a concept that some1 thought is what Sony should have done or it would be a good idea. This isnt even news this shouldn't have gotten approved.
I'll keep my DualShock 3 thank you
it breaks apart a little too easy. What if your playing a game and get really excited and suddenly the controller splits into two and you have to stop and put it back together. Looks interesting though.
Can I just use it to be even more lazy and just play with my hands hanging down from the couch?
Dammit, if every console is going to have some stupid wii-like motion sensor i'm done with console gaming. I'm a lazy ass and I like to actually lay down and play my games and no more. I hate using the SIXAXIS because it requires too much energy for me. I want to be able to lie down with the controllers like they are now and actually play a game like normal. I hate how all the compnaies these days are just taking advantage of every single gimmick out there and applying it to their product. I hate motion sensors, I hate touch screens, I hate AAA or AA battery operated things, I hate baby music, I hate almost every company these days. What the hell happened to gaming? Not to sound fanboyish, but is it just me, or since M$ came in gaming went downhill. Probably just coincidence, but gaming lost its touch after their XBox. We don't see classic games like Mario 64 or Star Fox 64, or Ocarina of Time. Nothing is fun anymore. Everything is about shooting aliens or shooting terrorists. We have games like Oblivion but that's nothing like zelda. I want games where you have one objective. To save a princess or something. Where there's x amount of temples(no huge number of 50 temples) and all those temples give you certain rewards to help you in the next one. Something VERRRRYYY similar to Zelda on the 64. Nowadays its about how many hours the game is, how many endings it has, how many weapons are in it.. Dammit worry about how fun it is, not how much stuff is in it. The only truly epic game we've gotten this gen is MGS4. It's got enough story to make it epic. Make another game with as much story and be as much fun when you play, it'll be epic. Err... wait... the reviewers will mark that game down for not being evolved and not enough like it's competition. Nobody tries to do something new anymore... the law of the land is the Reviewers. Like someone said a few days ago, mix up the words of the intro to be related to reviewers, and it won't be too different. Gaming, has changed.
"Dammit worry about how fun it is, not how much stuff is in it. " If I had to venture a guess i would say thats the whole purpose/arguement of the Wii. Fun>Graphics Not too many people get this though.
