PS3 Rumors – New PS3 Controller Unveiled?
We’ve read an article on SPOnG giving out interesting PS3 news.
Were you scared about the bad boomerang banana? (Talking about the Playstation 3 Controller as usual, of course).
Well.. it was just a joke! You children, You always believe everything :)
The definitive design of the controller is going to be unveiled (maybe) at January’s Consumer Electronics Show.
The story so far: A Sony representative told GameSpot, “We have made no announcements regarding the PS3 controller, so any reports to the contrary are purely speculation.”
It’s pretty true. People always has to talk, talk and talk about things they are waiting for, and they (well, I’m one of them maybe :) ) get easily tricked. The boomerang controller could even be a fake, who knows?
Well, Sony has shown it at E3 2005, so I’m still worried about it :) why showing things that are not final? Did they want to create a lot of interest around the playstation 3 controller? To analyze gamers’ reaction? Who knows.
Let’s say it was a test judge public’s reaction to the controller, and as it was a disaster it became unofficial until next event :).
But wait! Sony Comp. Ent. and. corp. exec. and. chief. tech. off. (lol) Masayuki Chatanai told our Famitsu friends about the E3, and we find out than:
…the controller might undergo “minor changes” but that the form factor would probably stay the same!
So, that controller wasn’t official. But its shape (its worst part) is already truth. No revolutionary design. No way out. We’ll use it to catch kangaroos :)
