Since i posted the interview with Trentton from sony, i couldnt get this out of my head:
GP: Would Sony ever consider releasing an updated "pro" controller, maybe with offset analog sticks and rumble support at a slightly higher price?
TRETTON: We used to have a narrow approach to controllers. If you really wanted to move outside the standard controller, we left it up to third party manufacturers. But now we're moving to a regional approach. You will see peripherals coming from SCEA that will address the interests of the U.S. consumer. I don't have anything to tell you specifically, but we're certainly open to changing the Sixaxis controller if it addressed North American gamers.
Finally i just sat down to put whats been going on in my head into visual form.
Here is it.
This concept focuses on the plan that HOME will play a big part in the future for the PS3. As well as breaking the restrictions of using a controller that is always stuck together. It also incorporates using the PSP along side the design merging controller and portable device. The best part is, is that there is no need for using both "stix", one is fine and can take advantage of any attachments made.
Anyways, share your thoughts. NO FLAMING. Im serious, be mature for once, and YES i know the hands are tiny. LOL you try doing this in photoshop from scrap.
I like it but i dont think sony would take it on
there are too many bits and they woud get lost over time
