probably... universal controller? hehe

They can't add something to big tho, because they'd be alienating all the existing owners.

It's like your appendix, it was useful, but evolution has deemed it unecessary, at least barely used.

Kaz was a great choice for Chief excutive officer.

Anywho. the PlayStation controllers are the only controllers on the market with pressure sensitive buttons. I do hope they continue with those small details and add more than rumble.

the triggers of the xbox 360 are also pressure sensitive... not the buttons though.

DrRage773476d ago

well, not entirely true since the triggers on the xbox360 controllers are touch sensitive, along with the analog joysticks...the regular 4 buttons and shoulder buttons are the only ones on the 360 that aren't touch sensitive (i am assuming you are meaning that the more you push it, the more response you get in a game such as running as opposed to walking, etc.)

i hope its a laser pointer to blind your friends

Merovee3476d ago

That would be useful for CAC.

They are adding "touch sense".
