What did the PS3 do that the Wii and/or XBox 360 copied?

Forums - Sony Discussion - What did the PS3 do that the Wii and/or XBox 360 copied?

Whoa, that new Wii controller is pretty crazy. Fact is, ever since the Dual Shock was released, every controller has been inspired by it. I say inspired, because really that's what it is. It's what all companies do with tech, which is why/how tech advances. The sad thing is that you get these die-hard fans who wish to give credit to one company, usually Nintendo, for everything innovative in gaming and everyone else are just copy cats. This mostly stems from the problem of them having limited info on the history of gaming and not wishing to look into the subject further. It's just easier to credit one company.

All 3 have innovated something new which other companies copied time and time again.

I think that since Nintendo is older, they have probably introduced more things which were subsequently taken as inspiration by other console manufacturers. analog sticks and rumble come to mind.



̶3̶R̶D̶   2ND! Place has never been so sweet.

PS3 was the first HDMI-ready console. After it's launch, the 360 added the function.

This ^

 

There is rumor, that 360 going to copy slim model :)

they are not copying the "slim model", all companys do it to reduce costs, sony did not invent manufacturing cost saving


I think they is coping.  MS seen how the sales for the PS3 went up after the slim and the price cut.  MS already have a $200 arcade 360.  I don't think it cost much to make a 360. 



MS is coping Home. Like buying clothes for your avatar. That was done on Home 1st.



you will know it this fall when 360 slim arrives

Don't think it will be called 360 Slim though...Maybe Light 360 or something...it won't be called slim,that's for sure.



Hmmm this is stupid, usually the least successful copy the successful. To be successfu,l does not make something better quality, just look at McDonalds.

Neither MS or Nintendo made slim versions of their last gen consoles (i.e., xbox and gamecube respectively) whereas Sony did (i.e., ps2).

If MS did it this gen, they'd quite clearly be taking a page out of Sony's book.

I am seeing the Wii getting a controller add on for the Wiimote that looks like the 360.  Outside of that, what else?  Can someone fill me in here?

 

don't know about you but it actually looks more like the dualshock than the 360's controller.

 

other than that, i can add some stuff that i rather call inspiration than a "Rip off!" to this thread but i choose not to because there are some people who will take it deeply and personally.

 

Correlation does not imply causation. The reason the classic controller looks like the dual shock is because they are both SNES pads with analogue sticks added on in the only place you could add them

 

Edit - stupid typo *brews more coffee*

it's not like nintendo was first either by your definition nintendo COPIED ATARI and therefore they have never innovated.
