I’m pretty sure you’ve heard the saying, “Don’t fix it if it’s not broken.” And if you haven’t, it’s pretty much literal: don’t fucking touch things that are perfect. Well, guess who might join Nintendo in the “making innovative changes but they’re really craptastic” team? None other than PlayStation!
As I was browsing the interwebs on my way home, I stumbled upon several articles with headlines “PS4 Controller Images LEAKED!” I obviously clicked the first article like a maniac like any Gamer would. And what do I find? This…
First off, the controller looks incomplete. It lost it’s smooth, elegant, and sleek look. PS4’s looks all bumpy and rubbery – much like a cheap toy you can find at K-Mart. To that, let’s add that it appears like you need giant hands to take a hold of that thing. The joysticks now will apparently have a weird circle indentation which makes it look cheap. There’s also a big random blue light on top of the controller that seems to serve no purpose but to send signals to extraterrestrial lifeforms living in another planet. And what the fuck with the touchscreen panel in the middle? For real. Why was that necessary?
I am hoping these leaked images are of prototype models. Let’s just say new ideas do not always equal innovative developments.
