Gears Of War designer praises PSP2 legacy control layout. Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski believes smartphones are naturally at odds with the most prevalent controller layout in gaming.
The Rock: "Know your role and shut your mouth!"
Cliff looks like a person who has many enemies! i mean his statement and look looks like he is a spoiled brat who never had to worry about making his own sandwich. In fact, he looks gay, thats just my opinion or he looks sissy boy. any way, he wants to be on the media to be famous and the only way to do that these days is to bash anything related to Sony.
Maybe, but I bet he knows how to read.
“Dual-analogue touch-screen controls do not work,” he said in an interview with Play magazine. “They’re fun for 15 seconds and then it’s just friction-burn.” Then look further down...... Bleszinski proceeded to praise the upcoming high-end PSP2 – Sony’s latest bid to thrive in the mobile and handheld market. “As much as I love iPad and iPhone gaming, I’m glad to see a portable that has actual buttons and dual analogue on it,” he said. You guys are just extremely dumb. http://static.divbyzero.nl/...
Just ignore them there a bunch of halfwit dumb fuck Sony slaves that didn't even bother to read the article.... He was talking about touch screens with "VIRTUAL" analogs not physical ones you fucking morons.
@Ryudo Take that banana out of your ass, punk. I was simply laughing at the Rock quote. CTFD
@VenomProject Yeah I find that believable... No honestly I do.
I'm sure Cliffy cried all the way to his Ferrari when he read that. It must be awful being rich and successful and regularly quoted by the press and then find out that maybe six nerds on the N4G comments section who don't even know have decided not to like you or respect you because they didn't even read your quote correctly. Poor guy.
No I've read it all I understand what he is saying, but how do you feel?
Glad PSP2 has both. It caters to two different ends of the spectrum that way.
Cliff would pretty much agree with you and people would see that if they took the time to read the article, I don't know why people still call him a douche. Please guys, I'm still waiting for someone to provide evidence that he really is a douche.
I'm good enough with the 2 sticks, but touch-screen is welcome too, so no problema XD
2 analog stick was necessary. After playing killzone and resistance on psp, the need for a second stick was inevitable. nice to see there's 2 of them on the NGP (PSP2), unlike the 3DS...
I think he's talking about virtual dual analogue sticks render on the screen, that you touch,like in James Cameron's Avatar on iphone. As the title states this is positive for PSP 2 that actually features two real touch screens. If he does in fact mean two actual analogue sticks combined with touch screen however, then I'm a bit sceptic.
In a sense. People who enjoy control sticks as their best preference of play, will obviously go with that control method.But the psp2(sounds better) has both options, and that'll benefit a lot of gamers.
Wow, a lot of people didn't bother to even read the description, let alone the article. He's saying touch screens on smart phones can't supplement or replace physical analogue sticks, which is why it's great that the NGP has both. You get dual analogue controls and the perks from touch screen controls. He's praising Sony for getting it right.
I know the guy is a big douche but still read what he says before raging and getting upset. Even he can see how the dual analogs on the NGP can enhance gameplay especially for FPSs and platforms like Jax and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank
For God's Sake Shut up!
He is right, no way you can really play properly with touchscreen analog lol. iphone and android games are overrated.
I agree about the touchscreen analog but Angry Birds says hi.
i've played games that would be played with twin sticks on a touch phone, and they're just awful. for once i agree with him. :)
guys read the article! he isn't bashing psp2, he is glad that psp2 is coming and said that bulletstorm may happen on psp2.
dual analog sticks and touch screen front and back. Fans have been begging for this.
That elf talks too much
I agree, try playing Bad Company 2 on the Iphone. Its not a pleasant experience.
I just noticed something. Apart from the people that say "Read the article" no matter what Cliff says, positive or negative, you guys still bash him. Maybe you shouldn't prove his point and not bash him every article, read the article first before speaking. On topic, I agree, try playing PSP with 1 analog stick. It's like hell. I'm glad there's the option for both touch screen and sticks as it can appeal to any gamer, casual and non-casual (heck we could get a good RTS on that platform)

STFU Cliff Blesivinisnsk. You're starting to look like an attention whore. Go make your game and just shut up.
So you're really too stupid to understand that sites quote him at GDC and then post his quotes on N4G for hits? You blame Cliffy for all the fan press people asking him for quotes? Dumb ass.
I don't give a fuck. Cliff is an asshole. I will never buy a game from such a fag looking guy. /End
Well if id rather be a rich ass fag than a trolling ass fag like you.
LOL way to be the posterboy for total ignorance. Didn't read the article did you? He's actually giving Sony props for getting it right. Go back to trying to dribble a rock or something.
To the dumb idiot that posted the article, Cliff said: “Dual-analogue touch-screen controls do not work,” You wrote: "Cliff Bleszinski: Dual-analogue isn't for touch-screens" Do you see the 'MASSIVE' difference? This is what happens when people fail at reading comprehension. Your title makes him sound like he hates the idea of a potable having Dual-sticks and a touch-screen, and then the "I'm too dumb to read an article" idiots interpret it in the wrong way. He's clearly talking about touch-screen controls NOT physical Analogue sticks, there's a reason why he mentioned friction burn. This article again proves how incapable of reading some of you loyalists are.
“Dual-analogue touch-screen controls do not work, they’re fun for 15 seconds and then it’s just friction-burn.” I have to agree there.. and he's basically praising the NGP which we all know will be sick. I know N4G loves to hate on Cliffy B but you can't disagree here. The thing is though, its only a matter of time before you'll be able to use the camera (or cameras) in your phone to aim. Not in huge sweeping gestures, just with subtle movements. So just because smartphones don't have dual-analog, eventually it won't really matter. I'm not sure what to expect out of out the Xperia Play, but it looks like a creative solution to the dual analog problem, for now anyway. Too bad its only 3G. I'm gettin my Thunderbolt tomorrow ;) "Apple has generated over $2 billion from games on the App Store, the company recently claimed." I'd like to see the average revenue per game.
