Eh... I don't hate it or anything, I've just never preferred it to whatever controllers the competition had.

That design is a better but still looks bulky IGN has a really good article about how people have designed of what they want the Next Gen Consoles to look Like

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/...console-design

Personally I like #3 design for Playstation and #2 for Xbox

Why so fat?

Looks like one of those cheap gimmicky conttrollers you buy when you can't afford the real thing. And what is up with that speaker?

For mics, so you don't necessarily need a headset...which I like. Which is rumor right now. But there is a jack for a headset underneath. But I would love it if it did not require one as some rumors have started.

And again, this is the dev kit one, so it's hard to tell what the final one will look like. But I'm liking what I'm seeing.

Oh, I forget about a mic, because I don't play online MP.

To me that doesn't make much sense. Why not just have the voice come out of the tv? It would certainly sound better than voices coming out of a speaker on your controller

Anyways, I prefer something like this

I dunno have we held the new controller yet? Lol or seen the final one? No. To both. To me that is nothing more then a DS without stick out buttons. It looks exactly the same. It seems they are changing a little bit.

Sony just released a promo of sorts for next weeks events and it's solely dedicated to the beginning of the Playstation in the early/mid 1990s.

Awesomely nostalgic...and now it's ensured what is going to be revealed Wednesday.

I was just going to post that Spidey lol. Listening to this I think they realize their marketing for the PS3 at launch was weak. I think they are ready to step back to what they did with PS1 and PS2's great marketing.

Awesome! Alot of nostalgia, the Crash Bandicoot stuff really made me nostalgia...I forgot how much he was used in the advertising campaigns...a sign? Only a fool like me would hope.

Good marketing would make the PS4 unstoppable just like their first two consoles were...well I was more of a fan of the PS1 stuff than the PS2 stuff but I loved the whole "Live in Your World, Play in Ours" thing. The PS3 early ads were creepy...

I do remember the PS3 marketing to be quite underwhelming. They have to make situations like this...feel like colossal events. It's the start of a new chapter, make it memorable!

The best ad hands down was this one:

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


It came out a month before the PS2 launched. Which I remember getting that on launch. This ad was just awesome, it teased. See the thing they need to realize, is the PS3 ones showed too much of the console, and were very creepy. It showed the ego of Sony at the time screaming: BUY THIS. Which I never liked.

You're first year customers are early adopters, and in marketing there is a way to deal with them. We want the newest and it means we are usually hardcore gamers. We take our hobby more seriously then the GA does or later adopters. We want sleek, seductive almost. It needs to be more of a tease, and not really show a lot. That's what made the PS2 ads like the one above work so well (that one won a bunch of awards I think).

The first wave of ads for launch need to show the "cool" factor of gaming, and make it just awesome. Nothing made for the GA because most know they for the majority will not be getting them. Later on you go for the GA and that's when you go with more funny commercials ect.

Also the box I want it to be like the PS and PS2's. The PS2 had such an elegant yet awesome box. No giant pictures of the PlayStation on it (like the PS3). It was just blue. With "PS2" in silver lettering. That was it. Something about it made it that much more enticing. Save the other boxes for years down the road when it is more mainstream. They need to do it as they did before, evolve the marketing. Start out aiming first at the seeds, the early adopters then change your marketing. Sadly that is marketing 101.

I hope they do PS2 style again with this.

I wouldn't mind a controller with a headphone jack since one of the issues I frequently come across is having to lower my TV all the way late at night so that I don't wake up people.

And doesn't the Wiimote have sound come out of it?

Wow I've never seen that ad, awesome! I agree about returning to the awesome ads and the box for the console. While I had more interest in the Original Xbox and Gamecube(yes I know, its weird because of how much I loved the PS1 too) the boxart for the PS2 was just sleek and mysterious. It was intriguing because of that.

Yeah I'm at college on the weekdays and occasionally weekends and use my computer monitor with my PS3 and can plug headphones in to have sound and not disturb my roommate. I don't want to have a ridiculously expensive Turtle Beach headset to get sound through a headset/headphones. A headphone jack on the controllers that could play the sound from the screen would be sweet!

The Wiimote does have sound.

They'll keep the basic free. It's a perfect competitive aspect for them compared to Xbox. Giving players the option to have free online play or paying for Plus for those who want more is awesome. They'd be fools to get rid if that.

I'd take Plus anyday though. I love it. I'd like to play Xbox Live again...but not enough I'm willing to give up Plus. As much as I want to get back into Halo 4.
