Move-DualShock Combo Could Have Been a Reality

In its current form, the PlayStation Move is a fantastic piece of hardware, and while it might still have a way to go on the software side, the controller itself is remarkably precise and responsive. However, your living room can become pretty cluttered with all the peripherals that are needed to play every title, especially with multiplayer – wouldn’t it be easier if your DualShock 3 and Move were the same controller? (Playstation Move, PS3)

I would love to see it implemented, I just don't know how they would do it. And btw, that pic is hilarious.

I can't help but laugh at that pic. I think the navigation controller is what should've had a Move ball on it.

:D
I'm glad ya liked my pic. MS Paint at its finest.

I want to know why they don't implement vibration function in the Nav. I assume it has vibration function but the focus seem to be only Move!
BigWoopMagazine  +   1500d ago
I might agree Pete. Oddly enough while playing KZ3 campaign with the Move and Nav combo, I hold them so my hands touch at the knuckles. It helps steady the Move reticle, since I don't have a sharpshooter yet. Otherwise I have to use my knee. The only draw back to having it fixed is you can't do the rotate to reload, bashing for melee would be harder, etc. For many games it would be limiting, but for shooters it'd make it steadier.

That thing is so ugly. LOL

I can't disagree with you there. It may have made sense to at least go down the path of what could a Dualshock add-on motion control device be like, but ergonomically it would have just been a nightmware. Much better as its own device, despite the extra clutter.

That would have been awkward
Sev  +   1500d ago
The move is kinda awkward now, but more so because it's the red-headed stepchild of the motion controllers. Nobody wants it.
fantasygamer  +   1500d ago
Just because it wasn't given a 500 million dollar commercial/hype up doesn't mean no one wants it..

I think you'll find
It can also be a blue-headed stepchild, pink-headed and any number of colours! Haha
Sev  +   1500d ago
It's cool man. I own 3 of them, I just don't give a rats ass about them. The games just haven't been good enough yet.

Killzone 3 was pretty cool, just not enough for me for it to be the revolution is SHOULD have been. It's not the Move's fault, it's developers fault.
BigWoopMagazine  +   1500d ago
Gotta agree there too Sev. That's why I'm so anxious for Sorcery. My favorite Move games so far have been Tumble and Echochrome 2, hah! Core games? Of course not!
NBT91  +   1500d ago
Indeed especially if you used a DS3 as the nav aswell, you would be playing with 2 DS3 controllers and swinging one around lol 0.0
dopeboimagic92  +   1500d ago
I honestly think Sorcery isn't going to be a killer app, either. The Move still doesn't have a solid titles that everyone has to have.
doctorstrange  +   1500d ago
If done right
It could have been great for the move - a far cheaper, easier to just plug it etc. Unfortunately, the pics make it look like they just couldnt make it work.
T3mpr1x  +   1500d ago
That would make for a decent grip on the controller, but it's better that they went with the wand in the end.

Sports champions as well as many other games would not have worked imo with those patent designs

I wished they had put another analog stick on the wand itself, putting the playstation button at the bottom.

Would have been awesome, IMO.
doctorstrange  +   1500d ago
Well
Sony did patent something rather similar, would have loved to see it in real life:

Thanks for the link!

Yeah, that's awesome, if they had made the analog stick version I would have liked it a lot!
rezzah  +   1500d ago
If it was like in the picture then thatd be very weird.
TardcoreGamer  +   1500d ago
Ahh. what might have been....I wish it was a reality before they came out with the current move/nav combo.

Seems like Sony made the mistake of getting caught between trying to please the hardcore and entice the casual but accomplishing neither.

If I were the designer i would have basically chopped the ds3 in half and added motion tracking and rumble to both hands.
Sony just needs to hire me to design their controllers that's all.

And that is what you get when you cross breed a DS3 with a Move controller. Kids dont try this at home.
fredfenster  +   1500d ago
I'm fine the way it is tbh. It's not like I have all that shit lying around on my living room table or something, I just put it in a drawer when I'm done with it.

That is strange looking.
