Playstation S2 tablet game controller revealed

Sony is set to release two new 'Playstation Tablets' this year, known as S1 and S2. The S2 will be more focussed towards games, due in part to its clamshell DS like design. The S2 will feature TWO 5.5" screens which will make it ideal for portable gaming. Moreover, the tablet will feature a digital touch-screen controller! Maxconsole managed to grab an image of what this controller will look like! (Android, Casual games, Dev, Industry)

dualshock support?? why dont just get a psp for like $500 less... not to mention i dont see many confortable ways to play while holding a dualshock controller

I'm sure they make tablet stands to set it up like a little TV, and I've been wanting a tablet for a while now so why not get one that's Playstation certified.

It does look really cool, but it's really tough to roll with those "virtual" touchscreen controls.

Not for me . The bigger the screen the better in my case . especially when you are going to split it in two for the sake of having a book like design .

Cool product but not for me

I'm also looking forward to the S1 more (the tablet). I really want an Android tablet, preferably from Sony, and the S1 is looking to fit the bill. The S2's cool and all, but if I want to game on the go I already have my... well, Go! And I'll probably pick up the NGP when it comes out, so I really don't need my tablet to be anything more than a tablet.

It looks...awkward?

At least the virtual controls are not on the screen the game is running on.

It's a touch-screen... The controller can look like whatever the hell each dev decides it'll look like!

why would you get this aside form having access to the android market without a phone?

Playing psx classics are better on any other sony system

it pretty much has zero original gaming application

The S2 is a bit more portable and the screen is protected.

also, not every sony product has to be focused on gaming.

hmm...NGP/PSP2, S1/S2 tablet, PS4 right around the corner as well? Sony seems to be in the new generation tech phase. Nintendo is releasing 3DS, and NES 6. Makes me wonder if Sony is hiding their game plan for PS4. If so when will it spill.
Kurisu  +   1238d ago
I don't think that's the case. I just think Sony don't want to fall too far behind in the tablet area. A lot of companies are doing it, so Sony may as well jump on the bandwagon. It doesn't mean that a PS4 is on the way, they just want to secure market share in other areas.

Not saying its a guarantee. Just saying. Sony wants to be everywhere with top notch quality. Saw Gameboy and went hmm.. PSP invented. Saw iPad and this Tablet is invented. See's NES 6 then PS4 is slapped with a release year. Sony will not be far behind I am telling yall. They already have their specs set. Just wait and see. E3 2012 if Sony doesn't announce PS4 by then. I can almost guarantee it to you they will though. Just no evidence.

Buttons. Real buttons please. For gaming I want real buttons. Or at least a separate controller.
