SCEA's Dr. Richard Marks has said he doesn't think it makes sense to ditch standard game controllers.
"Sony says it 'doesn't make sense' to ditch standard gamepads" agreed, things like Move, Kinect should always just be additional ways to play, never standard. personally that's where the Wii went wrong for me, Nintendo should go back to the pad and use motion gaming for additional means.
I Second that opinion. I don't see why we can't have both, and it's better then that sixaxis gimmick.
I third that opinion. Giving gamers different options on how to play their games like killzone 3 is what i like about gaming.
Nice to hear the occassional comment that actually backs the players thoughts from time to time. Especially from big companies that always want to be the next big thing
We've had the same control pad design since Ps1. I remember first hearing about the analogue stick design Ape Escape. Shit was sick, it's still the greatest pad out there especially for fighting games imo.
Solution? Full motion Dualshocks!
the ps3 controller rocks i just wish it had more buttons for games with alot of commands so i dont accidently hit the wrong button. ie socom is a game with alot of commands and if there were two extra buttons for putting the commands and weapon switch itd be easier since my reload is weapon switch and my taunts is well i think it was with my run
@OhReginald, i dont know how anyone could disagree with you. Someone anti-choice maybe? lol
Dualshock is the PERFECT design for any games. That's why there are more than 300 million dualshocks ruling the world. That is 4% of total world population
Agreed I think they should have the choice to use a game pad in the next Wii even if you give people the choice you can still push the motion controll in advertising or what ever new thing they will come out with....it could bring back the people that have let their Wii gather dust over time.
exactly... or else we would eventually end up like this
Dont change something if it isn't broken. I don't think anything can succeed the gamepad (Or Mouse and keyboard). Motion controllers and cameras are just add ons, but they do give you more variety and a different experience.
Good Lord, thanks for Sony. If not, we'd be waving our arms frantically to another Kinect Duty.
I hope you`re not directing that comment with undertones to Nintendo aswell. I respect many of your comments. Don`t disappoint me Citan.
Sorry about that ;) Good Lord, thanks for Japanese console companies!
There you go:D
I agree. All it needs is improvements. More accurate sticks, faster response time buttons, and like the razer onza mappable buttons or maybe a touch pad int he back of the DS3 controller like the NGP.
Totally agree - if controllers are going to change, just improve on the previous model with whatever is necessary. I think since most of us gamers today have always known a controller, it'll be hard if not impossible for the industry just to drop the whole idea of a standard controller.
if that were to happen. i dont think id play as much as i do. well until i got the hang of the new control method.
Sony PS1, PS2, and PS3 dualshocks, the best gaming controllers ever
KING in HAND!
I love the PS pad,but i really hope for a new design before this gen end like they did with Dualshock for PS1.
Dualshock needs a trackball instead of right toggle, concave left stick and concave triggers.
Nothing beats the Dualshock. Not even that big, battery taking, clunky piece of shit controller on the 360.
There needs to be an up-scaled version of the DS3 for people without midget hands Still waiting...
I agree, it doesn't make any sense at all. It's pure stupidness. Controllers are here to stay. At least til VR becomes a Reality.
I agree with them bit this is why move sales are poor whenyou put them next too kinect and Wii. Both Nintendo and Microsoft have made games that only use kinect and work very well like Mario galaxy or kinect sports ect. Where Sony give the option of ds3 or move. And all though this option is nice to have people who don't have move ain't going to spend another £100 to play kz3 when it plays better with the ds3. But I think Sony will ship move with the next Playstation as standard just like Microsoft will ship kinext with the next Xbox and this could be where move starts to pick up its sales.
