[Rumor] Could this be the future of PlayStation controllers
It seems as though more and more each day; rumors are being spread around regarding Sony’s upcoming press conference on February 20, which many predict is going to reveal the PlayStation 4. With that being said, one of the most important features of a console is the controller, and according to this image, the PlayStation 4 looks to be going down the touch screen controller path. Take a look for yourself…
However, please keep in mind before you start hating (or loving) it that this is just a rumor, but could very much be true as another rumor was making it’s rounds saying that the new controller will indeed include a touch screen.
But what exactly will this additional screen be used for you ask? Well, judging by the picture it looks too small to play a full game on, but could very well allow the player to manage inventory or scroll through a game’s many menu screens in similar fashion to the Wii U’s GamePad just without the option to play a full game on the screen alone.
As for me, I think this idea of touch screen controllers being the future of console gaming is a little too much. On one side I very much see the value in it and the convenience, but at the end of the day I would prefer to just have a regular old controller in my hand rather then having to deal with a touch screen, Maybe it’s just that I’m a little too old school, but then again this is only a rumor.
What are your thoughts g1s? Do you think this is the controller of the future? Or would you prefer Sony stuck to the no-touchscreen-controller design? Let me know in that comment section down below!
