At E3 yesterday Sony tossed aside the boomerang controller shown at last years E3 and introduced their
new… well… updated controller, which can be described as:
PS3 Controller = PS2 Dualshock Controller + Axis-tilt Sensing gyros – Dualshock
The Joystiq guys rushed from the Sony announcement yesterday to the sony Booth and managed to get some hands-on time with the new controller:
Immediately following the Sony keynote, we pushed and shoved our way to a quick and dirty session with the new PS3 controller. Warhawk was the only playable demo touting six-axis sensing functionality; so naturally, our destination was the setup featuring that game.
So what did they think? Basically:
- It’s very light, to the point of feeling cheap
- The tilt sensing felt very unrefined
- The analog sticks positions made their thumbs feel weird
