What? Innovation which actually is smart and without card Box?? Dare you Sony.

I think you meant improvement. It's just an extension of the Motion controller design.

I think they were joking and meant, without cardboard (boxes)? How dare you.

Similar to the PS meme's towards XB1 like, we made VCR's too. Now for Nin it's like, we sell cardboard too, with hardware inside.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Cool. Now let's have a top gun style jet fighter SIM.



I still wish they could just somehow design a DS4 that splits in half, for VR usage.



Finally. It's not a secret that PS Move isn't the best of the bunch. Eight year old Wiimotes+ work better than these.

Something like this? https://www.dualshockers.com/rumor-another-playstation-4-controller-revealed/

All the rumour about splittable PS3 and PS4 controllers over the last decade.

Sony even had patented the idea several times:

This is one of the biggest negatives I've heard for PSVR, so it's good that Sony is adressing it, wether it'll be for current gen PSVR or next gen PSVR.

I don't really understand why this couldn't be supported on current PSVR though? Anyone with tech knowledge that can explain?

Just no!!

Current VR requires a camera to track to a light source. Maybe the PS4 itself cant receive the input alone?

That said I dont think its worth doing right now. Its a pretty solid sell as part of PSVR2 but introducing another controller now (after DS4, Move and the Aim controller) will be a little silly. A controller like this needs a fresh start imho

That is strong BS you're spewing here. Move is vastly more precise than the Wiimote.

It's still not as precise as Rift and Vive of course.

There are some games, like Skyrim, where you can play with the DS4 in the left and a move in the right hand.
