Remember when we told you of rumblings on the next PlayStation system's controller and how it might have a touchscreen? Well, get a look at this strange thing. This image looks like a PlayStation-style controller plugged into something that looks like a development kit.
84w ago - Today Sony has announced news of a PlayStation branded PS3 keyboard and mouse controller slated for release on November 2, 2011.
Manufactured by HORI, the Tactical Assault Commander 3 peripheral set will sells for ¥9800 ($127 US) and is officially licensed by Sony Computer Entertainment.
To quote: "The Tactical Commander 3 consists of an optical right-handed mouse and a keypad for the left hand with WASD-style keys. The pad also includes an easy-access D-Pad comes attached with a palm rest.
Tracking resolution on the optical mouse is unclear, but it's doubtful that the mouse can match the capabilities of a true gaming mouse for the PC. However, the mouse will come equipped with a DPI/sensitivity toggle for more precise aiming.
Sony has not yet announced what games it plans to support with the peripherals at this time. It's curious to see if the company plans to offer mouse and keyboard support for first person shooters like Killzone 3 and Resistance 3, which would undoubtedly benefit from the precision offered by the peripherals."
To quote: Hello everyone, I am glad to introduce the long awaited PS3 Remappable controller. This project started with the express intention of granting Chuck Bittner his desire to remap the buttons on a standard controller.
With this controller, Chuck will be able to remap the buttons on any current and past game that he normally would have to pass on due to the ergonomics of the default button layout. But his petition is much more important than that, as it will allow stock controllers the same ability for all games in the future. So please visit his petition (petitiononline.com/cu5t0m/petition.html) and support the cause.
OK. Now onto the main event! I have spent better than 6 months of late nights (I dont have free time before 10PM) getting this modification to work just right. I have made the decision not only to make the first controller...
140w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a fresh PlayStation Move PS3 motion controller tech demo video today.
To quote: While some of you already have the new PlayStation Move motion controller in your hands and others are just hours away, it seems a good time to post this tech demo from Move's inventor, Dr Richard Marks.
I particularly like the sculpting part and I really hope this makes it's way into a game one day as a weapon customisation tool.
I hope you're enjoying Move so far, those of you that have your hands on it.
In case you missed it, here's a video interview I shot with Richard when he visited London a couple of months ago.
141w ago - Sony Senior Vice President Peter Dille of Marketing & PlayStation Network has revealed today alongside some fresh videos that PlayStation Move will be hitting homes in North America soon.
To quote: This is a particularly special week for the PlayStation brand. Today, we're celebrating the 15th anniversary of PlayStation in North America.
As someone who was here at SCEA on 9/9/95, I can honestly say that the same enthusiasm and commitment to delivering great entertainment still drives the brand forward.
Which brings me to why this next week will also be special - the launch of one of the most exciting new products of the year: PlayStation Move.
We've been gearing up for the big launch of PlayStation Move in stores across North America next week and over the course of the next few months you'll be hearing quite a bit about PlayStation Move on your TVs, online, at your favorite PlayStation retailer, at your local mall and on some of your favorite products.
Beginning next week "PlayStation Move Headquarters" stores will come to San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and a larger scale mall tour will debut in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, DC and Chicago.
