    I was just about to post this. Basically a 10-year-old controller design minus the rumble with tilt sensing. Surely you don't have to be a Nintendo fanboy to see that there's something wrong here.

    While I do enjoy the added immersion it brings, I think was probably a ploy to get the media away from its lack of rumble........but regardless of that, they now need to take advantage of the SIXAXIS.

    btw - Sony patented their tilt before Nintendo even announced their secret controller(teh Wii-mote)

    But it's clear in actual applied use the differences between the Wiimote and the Sixaxis. I have no idea how Sony won an award for a such an old and tired design that has motion sensor tacked on.

    Right - the only REAL difference(besides conceptual design), is application.
    NOTE - one uses an external & built-in devices to track movement, while the other ONLY has sensing built in. And, while the Wii-mote completely changes the way you interact with a game, the SIXAXIS merely adds immersion to an already tried/true interaction(the basic controller).

    Which is a little absurd, but like I said, this is probably more of a ploy to help nudge unhappy rumble-fans into trying out tilt.

    For some reason the rumble feature of all of my five DualShock 2 controllers has died and while its nice, I think accelerometeres add much more to the experience than a rumble feature.

    I agree, I prefer tilt offer rumble, and while both would be nice.....rumble is not THAT imperative.

    over....not offer(stupid EDIT still not working)

    Bwhaha. I think this guy needs to be reminded of the lack of interest with the PS3. Shelf stock anyone? I feel embarassed for him. He's talking about how much the system has demand and critical acclaim, where in reality they produced less systems than Nintendo and they still have machines in shops! Incredible.
    Critical Acclaim? I guess they must not be playing the games. The best game is what? R:FoM which has acclaim for being a run of the mill, forgetable game.

    In actual fact the first thing Jack said was a bare faced lie which is evidented by his 2nd quote "It will get better", "potential" etc. What a ****ing moron.

    a controller that hasn't changed much since the mid 90's. they lost rumble and stuck in gyroscopes. Sure the 360 controllers haven't got gyros but it's leaps and bounds above the PS3 controller. We entered the 3D gaming world now Sony. Swop the left analogue stick with the d-pad please. It would help if the controller wasn't a bastardisation of the SNES controller to begin with.

    Atari 2600 had tilt...........whats your point?

    Anywho, I merely stated they had tilt in mind before the Wii-mote was announced..... :rolleyes:

    Why did my question without a question mark bother you? ;)

    I'm just curious. The tech has been around for a long time, since at least the first pinball games. As you mentioned the 2600 had tilt, all GB/GBA pinball games that I know of, had tilt support.

    Even Nintendo's PowerGLove had tilt.

    So stating that Sony had a patent on it prior to Nintendo made me curious to when they filed this patent?

    roger that, I understand.......I just wanted to prevent any "Sony copied Ninty" remarks/flamewars to ensue in such a thread.
    (which is why I replied with the 2600+tilt post)

    Anywho, I still think this award is more of a novelty than anything.

    Empty your cache in Safari. It should now be working :)


    I'll reserve my judgment of SixAxis until I have my PS3. For me i'm guessing it will be just like the wii remote in that for some games it will work fantastically and for others its a complete miss. But I am looking forward to Lair & Warhawk :)

    Also, sorry to be a grammar nazi, but "have sex to calm his furry" sounds...wrong. One R in fury, please.

    I see. If I didn't know someone in porn, nor work for a marketing company in the past, I would say that these awards are all deserving, but it all comes down to advertising dollars spent, which determines the winner. :)

    That's what I was wondering at first. :confused:

    Now I'm left wondering why the **** it went to the SIXAXIS. People need to remember that it's not motion sensing, but tilt sensing (rotation around three axes, but not movement along them).
