Did Yakuza Director Confirm Prototype Drawings for New PS4 Controller/Kinect-like Peripheral?

Some interesting news from Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creative mind behind the Yakuza series, that Yakuza 5 would be the last version to hit the PlayStation 3; all but confirming that this would be the start of the PlayStation 4′s life cycle. While we all know about the big February 20th reveal that is seemingly confirmed to be the PlayStation 4 event, Nagoshi may have dropped some news in the interview that Sony may have wanted to keep under wraps.

I'm with you, I'm not even a Sony fan, but for the sake of the Sony fans I hope this isn't true.

How can you not be a Sony fan?

Do you dislike good games? I can understand not being a Microsoft fan, but that is it. If you care about gaming at all you have to be a Sony & Nintendo fan. They're the only two companies with actual IP's that matter.

@merrill

"Good" is subjective. So your whole point is moot.
Excluding one company surely makes you miss out on "good" games. But you will never know cause you never played them. So why even bother Arius with your nonsense?

@sidar

I'm not going to argue semantics with you, I think most people understand my point.

If you choose to exclude Sony(PS3 for example) games from your playing schedule then you're clearly missing out on some classic gaming experiences, i.e. Demon's Souls.

You must have just learned the word "subjective" and wanted to use it because your point is rather moot.

@Merrill
congrats you (and everyone else who agreed with you)are what's wrong with this site.
You're a sony fan great, the problem is you're forcing it on other people like some jehovah witness. How can you honestly give him sh*t for having different taste? grow up

I'm a gamer through and through. I like games for their devs and the time and consideration put into them. I went with PS3 because I like free online, and I love franchises like Killzone (obviously) and Uncharted. But I also like Gears, and I own a PC/Wii that I play a lot.

Putting yourself as a "fanboy" just shows that you put limitations on what games you will actually enjoy.

If its true, i will buy the controller just to throw it at a wall. Smh. Please god hope not.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney4123d ago (Edited 4123d ago )

I wouldn't mind if the controller can come apart and be used like move. They just need to chop the balls of first. Plus I wouldn't have to buy a move or ps eye if it's all in one box.

Good way to get devs to make good content knowing everyone has one.

I am starting to think the concept of having separate peripherals are behind us.

I would expect better experiences since devs know everyone has one. This is maybe why standard controllers don't suck.

A regular DS4 that comes apart wouldn't bother me. We will see on the 20th.

I sense they will take the controller apart and shoot arrows in heavenly sword 2. That would be better than six axis.

HyperBear4123d ago

Please Sony, don't do this to me. Only reason I moved back to PlayStation from Xbox was because M$ only focused on Kinect and motion crap, instead of actual full-blown new gaming experiences and genres. Don't make the same mistake Sony, or else I'll be going back to PC full-time...

golsilva4123d ago

You know I am now thinking that the ds4 may have better motion controlling but I think one rumor said move would be compatabile with the ps4. Now its likely that the ps4 wont be backwards compatabile so whats the point of using move on ps4. I think that the new dual camera will be paired with the current move controller to continue sony's motion controlling games. This would make sense as move was introduced in 2010 so only 3 years have past and the main limitation to why move couldnt do more was the camera.

So having the move with a better camera would be economically better for consumers and sony as already 10-15 million moves have been sold so there are some people that have it. Plus they could do a new bundle with a move + new camera + game for around $100 which what the original move bundle cost.

GribbleGrunger4123d ago (Edited 4123d ago )

'Instead, Nagoshi’s claim that the game would be a more physical experience lends credit to the drawings and blueprints of a PlayStation controller.'

How the friggin' hell do you draw that conclusion from the fact he said it would be a more physical experience? It might just use MOVE or he could just be saying the game's more dynamic.

Qrphe4123d ago

That's what I exactly came to comment. These titles are ridiculous.

WooHooAlex4123d ago

That's exactly what I thought as well.

And how about that line in the article about you strapping each one of the controllers to your legs? That was one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read.

If anything all this does is speculate that there will be some form of motion control option for this game.

BitbyDeath4123d ago

I was thinking of this patent when reading that -

...not yet but 100% within the next 10 years!

..Then Sony will use it like the drop of a hat. They're no different to the others.

isarai5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

They used to be 😞 sure it was always a business, and money's always the priority, but they used to have a very strong stance on supporting artists and creativity. "Dont f#@k with the artist" was a phrase they touted a few times back in the ps1-ps3 era, a philosophy carried over from their music branch PlayStation was created from. It's not COMPLETELY gone, but it's barely there compared to what it was back then, i just want them to return to that.
