    After revealing the design that they are going with for their Mad Box console, Slightly Mad Studios's CEO Ian Bell took to Twitter again to unveil the first early concept designs for their console.

    The controller appears to blend elements of controllers from current gen consoles, bearing an Xbox layout and a touchscreen, rather than a touch pad à la PS4 controller. It also has rear paddles somewhat akin to the Xbox One Elite and SCUF controllers. However, note that these are merely concept images and the final product might very well look totally different, and the company might even release some more possible designs in the future as it did with the console itself.

    Looks like something you'd find in the Tron universe.

    Does not bode well. Looks like it was designed by a 12-year-old from 1982.

    I will be stunned if this ever sees the light of day. These controllers are going to cost too much just to have information that distracts the player from the screen and burns through the battery.

    No thanks... Just... No. That looks bloody awful. You'd need pretty big hands to use that properly.

    It's like they looked at the Xbox ONE controller and said, "See that? See how it fits so nicely in your hands? Yeah, let's fuck that up!"

    What is wrong with these people?

    ... Because it's accepted as comfortable by more people than those that favor the PS layout.

    I like the idea of the screen, but like all other controllers whose concept images included a whole-surface-covering irregular shaped touchscreen, it will shrink to a small rectangular screen in later designs, and then cut entirely in the end model.

    the idea behind the controllers isn't half bad. but everything else looks... too illuminated.
    I bet the battery life is of about 2 hours, but it would be a full week without all those lights.
    and the console itself looks like a linksys router.

    Jesus fucking Christ, is this a controller or a sci-fi portable hacking station? This is way overambitious, just like the console itself.
