Sony putting out "Universal" controller with LCD touch screen?

I hope they include stick input ports…

Padhacking officially obsolete?

A LCD touchscreen for a controller really makes me cringe. I have a Harmony One universal remote that has a touchscreen and it works great for its intended purpose. It’s great for customizing buttons for different devices, but I’d rather have tactile hard buttons for functions that I would constantly use (volume, channel, etc.).

That being said, I wonder what the input lag will be on the screen. :P~

No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No.

Sony total fail.

Bullshit imo.

Theres no need for this.

So the whole thing is a touch screen?

After having an iPhone I’m about as anti-touch screen as you can get. This thing(the phone) is fucking horrible. The few games they have on the iPhone are near impossible to control.

Meh, it’s just another of Sony’s ambiguos patents. If anyone’s been following, they’ve been doing this for the past few years with concepts for control interfaces/tech.

No. I don’t think the ‘whole’ thing is touch screen. It’s clearly a controller, but you would use the touch screen LCD to select the consoles, configure the buttons, etc…,

This may be the ultimate PCB / LCD to mod a stick with.

Or it may be the worst.
