Forums - Gaming Discussion - Cross Plane puts a screen in a controller for PC, PS3, 360, Ouya (Looks kinda like a WiiU GamePad)

Tagged games:

Advanced Gaming Innovations LLC began its Kickstarter campaign last week for the Cross Plane, a controller with a touch-less, seven-inch screen that functions as a main display for PC, 360, PS3 and Ouya users. The campaign is seeking $350,000 to begin production of the controllers, which backers can receive one of by contributing $350.

The Cross Plane will use a wireless HDMI transmitter to send data to "control paks," which can be swapped out from the back of the Cross Plane to make the hardware compatible with different platforms. While the project's Kickstarter page notes that the 360 control pak will be a one-trick pony, the PS3 control pak will also work for the PC and Ouya due to "compatible Bluetooth connectivity technology." Support for the Xbox One and PS4 is also planned "should the project be successful."

The Kickstarter page states that the prototype is capable of a 20 foot line-of-sight range, but Lead Designer Chris Downing clarified to Joystiq in an email that the range of the final product should be increased by rearranging internal hardware. "The remedy is simply a matter of relocating the receiver at which point I'm confident we'll be able to get back to the 60-plus foot range," Downing said.

So let me get the facts lined up:

1) The Kickstarter needs $350k

2) Pledgers must donate at least $350

3) It's being made for consoles that never had screen-in-controller support to begin with, so it pretty much will only offer Off-TV play, because it's almost guaranteed no developer will add Gamepad mechanics for PS3, 360, PC and Ouya games for the suckers silly enough to get this.

4) Even then, the Off-TV play wouldn't be optimized for the controller in the way that Wii U games are, since they aren't made with it in mind.

5) These guys expect there are one thousand dumbasses out there with $350 laying around.



Lawsuits...lawsuits everywhere!

I cant believe 3 people offered 1k lol.

Their goal is 350k....ya...good luck with that.

I can't believe none of you people have any clue what this is.

Switch the thread title to Vita remote play and you're more accurate while ditching some hate.

Why are you talking like this? You are only making a fool of yourself. It is a touchless screen, so it's pretty obvious that it is for off-tv play only and doesn't need extra gamepad mechanics (other than being a controller with a screen).
