    I think they did research on it, placed it on the market as an experiment and then when it fell through (cuz it sucked) they ditched it. Companies always have to try new things to gain the upper hand over competition. Nintendo is doing it now, but with much better results, because you won't get headaches from how the visuals are displayed. You may throw a controller or two by shaking it to hard and it slipping from your hand...but that is a very good marketing thing for Nintendo, they'll be selling a lot of controllers, lol.
