[Rumor] Sony might move away from the DualShock with Orbis
With the Orbis coming very close to being announced, everyone is curious if Sony will revisit the Boomerang design for their controllers. While no one can confirm the resurgence of such a monstrosity, there are rumors of multiples controllers on the horizon.
First is the Orbis pad might include biometric sensors and a touch screen. A second source reiterates this by stating they are "trying to emulate the same user interface philosophies as the PS Vita". There are even rumors that due to the PS3 controllers being Bluetooth, they’ll be compatible with Orbis.
Though it sounds like PlayStation is aping Nintendo, a lot of these rumors make sense given the Cross-Play nature of Vita and the accessibility of Bluetooth. The same source mentions the Orbis “will be revealed in a matter of weeks, not months”. So I guess we’ll know soon enough.
