Very interesting. Can't really talk about 'ripping off', as copyrights mean they made different methods to get the same result, but the timelines really show how Sony was behind everything the others made.
Cool.. but it's kinda incomplete.. at least SEGA and Atari should be there..
I know it's made just to make fun of Sony's lack of creativity.. ant it's true.. lol
I didnt made that but found that on one image board in video games
what about that xbox triggers? Isn't it the same as the game cubes L and R buttons (which are kinda like triggers... atleast pressure sensitive), or the N64 z-trigger?
Sony is like the sneaky little shit at school who copied off you during every test, and ended with the higher paying job and company Porsche
call me crazy, but i always LOVED the gamecube controller. nintendo has always been way ahead of the curve.
actually the xbox controller is designed after the dreamcast controller, the same for the console too, they have a lot of design similarities.
original big xbox controller
(note how the colour of the buttons have been changed around on the xbox controller)
Dreamcast controller was the shit. I loved the triggers and the way you held it- better than microsoft sidewinger.
the best part about the dreamcast controllers is the VMU with it's tiny lcd display.
It's kinda ironic how everyone complained that the Dreamcast controller was "too simple" and had too few buttons, and now everyone's raving about the Wii's simplicity
What an awesome controller it was...loved the d-pad
Well, the VMC screen was funny to watch at. I remember playing virtua tennis and seeing the tiny dot going... ping, pong... lol Also with Soul Calibur.
I found it sad that such an awesome machine fell into oblivion just because of how easy it was to pirate PSX at first, and then it made a place into markest - not sure how it worked in other countries, but it was undoubtly that way in Spain. Actually, I got to change a PSXone for a DC, which is by far a good deal and after some time my syblings began to put me down because of the trade just because no one else around us had a DC.
And the internets... it was incredible. I'm not sure if any other console had it before the DC, but I found it awesome and didn't even know what it worked like (lol, I saw my cosuin using it xD).
Ah, whatever. The pad was simply great. Also, unless you put much stuff (rumble and VMC or something) into it, it was light and easy to hold for hours and hours.
For more stuff you can check An history of gaming input devices ( nice five pages )
and also A history of 1970 & later game consoles starting from pong ...
How funny : wii-fit-pad-similar-to-25-year-old-atari-accessory...
See Also D-pad page of wikipedia (en)
imo i think power stone and skies of arcadia had the best VMU display
edit: that atari pad looks like a nes gaming pad....
I lol'd at the chart.
yah, gamecube has to be my favourite controller design, if it was just made of the same material as the 360's controller and had a better dpad, I'd be happy to use it for every console ever.
also, was sony the first to include two analogues?
I assume that this thread meaning is to tell people that xbox controller is 100% unique?
my fav controller is either xbox-s (the small one) or gamecube. both fit so well.
oh, and I WANT A DREAMCAST!!!
over 9000 hours in paint.
