Sony starts a "revolution!"


http://www.gamespot.com/news/6149586.html



Wow, how low can a company get? I'm sorry, but Sony has really dissappointed me with the PS3. Just about any desire I had for one is now gone (to be fair, it was gone once the price was released). Anyway, here's to hoping Nintendo's still unreleased "secret" is worthwhile.

"Sony's Phil Harrison even went so far as to tell us that 'rumble was last generation, movement is this generation.'"

This is great, he is acting like they were the first to come up with it, lol.

"So if you wanted to be a cynic, you could say that this is a wireless PS2 controller with analog triggers like the Xbox, a central guide button like the Xbox 360, and internal motion sensors like the Wii. But what's probably most important is that the controller feels pretty nice and already seems to work well."

Although, I do like the analog triggers and the guide button.

Sounds like its and the 360 are going to be identical except for ergonomics... and the motion sensor that MS will add soon enough, lol.

Nintendo leads, others follow, baby. If you were ever in doubt of this fact, it should be clear now.

I wouldn't be so upset, but Sony ripped Nintendo off in such a cheap manner. Bah, Wii is still much cooler with full free movement as well as the "laser pointer" capabilities, none of this "6 degrees of freedom" with one half working game demo to show it off. Oh yeah, Nintendo also didn't seem to mind adding feedback with motion sensoring.

I find it hilarious how it's so BLATANT!!! Props to nintendo, big bad sony copied your idea. That's some big props! Whether or not nintendo becomes the next sega or not, their staff went out with a bang . you know MS will copy very shortly.

Even though the concept is cool...playing video games just won't be the same with all the constant movement, gonna have to stand or extend your arm out for lengthy periods of time

Probably a united effort among the video game industry to get their consumers less fat. After all, kids dying at 18 from all the problems that go with being fat doesn't exactly spell out long term

how would they get sued? That's like someone eating mcdonalds and filing a lawsuit against them because they gained weight. No one is forcing these fatties to play games. I am 19 and weigh 128 pounds(5'11"), you tell me... lol

There or over 100 lawsuits a year geared just that way, and about 70% of them win too.

That and I was being a wise ass

yeah but they will spend more money fighting then just paying them off. It's like all the lawsuits against micheal jackson for child molestation, granted they could all be true, but in many cases it's cheaper for him to pay them to spend his money on the expensive lawyers.

They said that stuff is exagerated (I need to learn to speel) and you'll be controlling stuff with just a flip of the wrist if you desire vs. the flambouant saber swinging in the comercials.

Nintendo's controller rumbles, probably has better motoin sensors on it ( just a guess ), you can aim with it, its wireless...OH and it has a speaker built into it, so you get what they call " debth of sound "

Where like in zelda, you pull back on the bow, and the bow strings sounds come from the controller, and when you shoot the aarow, you can hear the arrow shoot from the controller, then your TV/Surround sound speakers pick up where the controller speaker leaves off. Giving you a Debth of sound.

pretty friggin ingenious if you ask me. ( not sarcasim ).

Nintendo leads the way once again. They start something, other companies try to rip them off. VIVA LA NINTENDO!

No offence but that controller won't go with that console design maybe the black one yeah but it's not sleek stylish enough. The other boomerang pad looked awful but it was sleek and stylish.

And you know what I bet the break as quickly as the PS2 pad's do.
