    Mmkay, just wanted to post this here. I've been thinking, the 360 is the only one really not intuitive on the control side. But 2/3 are, 1 is based around it, and the other is half/half, while the third is none. Anyone else think the 360 will be the last console to use old school (true because its the original type) gaming? Will the next generation be all motion sensing/something else? Or might the 360 keep to old school and attract that market who dosen't pefer motion sensing. (like me) What do ya think?

    I think it had more to do with the fact that they rushed to get the 360 out a year before sony and nintendo.

    The Xbox360 doesn't use "the original type", the original would be the D-pad controller from the NES. The Xbox360 uses the analog sticks predominately, so from the way you're looking at it, the original type is already dead. Of course, even the NES used alternate forms of movement via the light gun.
    Personally, I think the newer forms of control only add to the gaming experience. I don't care about "original types" or whatever, a game is a game.

    original, as in not motion sensing or some other ****ed up ****, and really, original would be a joystick and a button if you wanna go there..:wtf:

    and vagrant, they didnt rush to get their system out a year before sony/nintendo, they rushed to get it out months before the ps3, which then got delayed

    it does, because it was only against 1 system and only a matter of months
    it dosent take away from the point they did rush it, but it does take away from the others

    But that wasn't my point. When the 360 started developement, at that time, it would have been impractical to have an hddvd player. As it apparently is now even according to the ps3 sales.

    Wrong. The PS3 comes with a Blue-Ray player, not an HD-DVD. It's completely different. For example, Blue-Ray is designed for the sole purpose of watching japanese hentai, whereas an HD-DVD player can play real movies. Those innovative japanese kids, what will they come up with next...

    Would it be at all possible for Microsoft to release newer versions of controllers with motion sensing that would be supported by new games... if they found that was really a crucial part of the market they were being hurt by.

    I'm not saying it'll happen or that people wouldn't be pissed off

    On a side note, have any systems ever released updated hardware that made older hardware useless/less valuable? Only thing I can think of is update chip for N64, but I believe it wasn't required for any games.

    @OP: i think that as technology progresses, we are getting closer to the 'virtual reality' type of gaming. I guess right now motion sensing might be the next step. The next few steps will get us closer and closer (hopefully) so that one day games will be like as if we were inside the game, using our own muscles to move and shoot guns (not just buttons) and such. So Sony and Nintendo probably thought motion sensing is the next step into the next generation, one step closer to true 'virtual reality'.

    PS, imo true gaming is still around, WASD ftw :cool:

    There are some games that requires motion sensor while some doesn't.
    That's why wii released several different kinds of controllers to make it fit to different games.

    The next gen will either use many diff controllers like wii or combination just like ps3.

    @Sovieto - your a dumbass, you dont get vagrants point. They rushed it end of story.

    @Topic - I think the next gen Xbox will not have motion sensing. Because of all the gamers who don't like waiving a controller around they would buy the next gen Xbox.
