Sony copies Nintendo, again

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony copies Nintendo, again

The Gamepad doesn't have a Share button nor an Options button. 

Thus, Sony didn't copy, they innovated. =P

I would think it would be the touchpad on the controller. Hope its multi touch

It is multi touch. You can zoom out maps with it, for example. 


Wow I cant imagine taking my hand entirely off the controller and trying to fit it into such a tiny space only to have to expand my fingers to zoom. I dont see why they didnt make it bigger. its going to be hard for adults to use it with so little room.



Everytime I see the new DS controller



Remove one button - one step closer to mobile master race status.

its called the options button. No other controller has one. The start button is obsolete these days. Most screens are progressed with the X button and moved back with the Triangle button or Y on the Xbox. Nothing has been stolen, I just think you have a problem with Sony in a desperate attempt to make Nintendo look better than they are in this current position. The controller has the best of the PS3, Xbox 360 and the Vita plus it has buttons set for a new generation of gaming where sharing is a big thing.

That seems even worse as my thumbs are on the analog sticks. I would lose complete control over my character while I fight to fit my thumbs in such a tiny space..

That blew your mind? Wow dude. It wasnt even a good idea.

It's no different than using any other button that forces you to let go of the analogue sticks. It is super easy dude. Unless you have issues pressing the d-pad, x, square, 0, triangle, start, select, or ps, you will be perfectly fine with the touchpad.

Except I only need one hand to touch the x square triangle buttons and can still use the analog not both dude. Not exactly mind blowing and you are not exactly thinking about it just blindly accepting it. Peace out. Dont feel like getting banned over someone that isnt thinking things clearly
