How am I suppose to select things now?


Options dude. Start is technically just the options button. He X button is generally used for most of the things the start button used to do in the past such as page progression.


So I select start to start selecting? Now I'm really confused...

They just changed the name. The options button is the start button, but it makes more sense now.

I guess Sony gets zero credit for the Eyetoy, sixaxis, camera/controller trackball compatibility (not infrared sensors like the Wii), PSN Plus, controller touch pad, using pixar method in the games development opposed to Nintendo learning from Disney and the list goes on and on. Nintendo has done many things and Sony copied them and admitted it, but when Sony does something good, they get ZERO credit for it. People still think the Kinect was the first of its kind.  


correct. everything you listed was piss poor.  no credit.  kinect is impressive they get credit.


 I don't follow your logic. If it worked how is it piss poor? Please show me clear reasons without bias as to how you came to this conclusion. Kinect is essentially the same thing as the eyetoy and Sony has since delved further than Kinect will ever go (hence why they never invested in the tech, because they had been there and done that), so I seriously do not follow. Thats like telling me Games for Gold is better than PSN Plus...when one influenced the others existence is far ahead and more matured in what its all about. Kinect will never go further in potential in the next gen than the Move has already reached in the current gen. It will just be a good accompanyment device for the Xbox just like it was this gen. Nintendo and Sony took the triggers from the Xbox and implemented them into their controllers and everyone admits this, but when its Sonys turn, why cannot they return the favor? Obviously its bias.

But I am biased.   It's gotta do more than work.  It's gotta be the greatest thing since sliced jerky.  Ppl have gotta swear by it.  I wanted move and eye toy. For the entire year or two that I waited for sorcery to release I clenched my wallet and looked at the move controllers with tears.  By the time sorcery came I didn't care anymore, given that Sony didn't either.  That was the eye toys chance.  Now it's dead and it never reached a tenth of its potential (and face it, move is a direct ripoff).  Six axis, the only time I used it was in gta iv and lair... Don't get me started.  What a fail.  Another slip shot attempt to be a me too motion control.  Six axis is sloppy and useless.  If I'm wrong I'd like to know which game you recommend for it.  And that's it for game craft innovation. Two fails and one cool knockoff.
If you wanna talk about ps+, you're entering business innovation.  Ps+ rental subscription is just sega channel.  Should Sony deserve credit for renting out games you didn't choose?  From a business perspective yeah, you guys like that business model.  I prefer club Nintendos model,  four free games everymonth you keep for ever.  My biggest problem with ps+ is its gonna be required for online play.  That's devolution in my biased opinion.
Kinect is well supported, successful, simple, useful, and getting better.  Can't say the same for Sony's "innovations".  Kinect has its own thing going.  It's not a direct ripoff of Wii.  It's motion control, but it's hands free.  They did something different and were successful at it.  Plus te fact that ms includes an improved version with their new box says all the rest.  But honestly, after looking at some of the ps move games on wiki, I'm thinking about buying one.  it's unoriginal IMO, but I can still enjoy it.


Damn, now I expect Sony to become even cheekier and to make DS5 with TWO screens!



Stwike him, Centuwion. Stwike him vewy wuffly! (Pontius Pilate, "Life of Brian")

A fart without stink is like a sky without stars.

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.

Wow, you're so much in Sony-defence-mode, that you think a joke-thread with a photoshopped 2DS is an attack on Sony? Wow, just wow.

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.

Dude. You just said you "hope its multi touch"...

I'm sure you've tried zooming in/out on a phone that has been rotated 90°.

Sometimes you just cant  tell whether its a joke thread or not. I read body language and undertones when people speak. Wow nothing. I am much better at catching it face to face if thats the case. On the net you'll probably catch me. You can say its Sony defense but its true what I am saying about Sony not getting very much credit and half of that is attributed to their crappy marketing.
