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


#1

I hope they include stick input ports…

Padhacking officially obsolete?


#2

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.


#4

Bullshit imo.

Theres no need for this.


#5

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.


#6

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.


#7

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.
