    hmm, I don't think that they will go for the controller+touchscreen way.

    M$ seems to be a big fan of Nintendo. :P

    I just hope they leave enough space in the NextBox's budget for a good CPU/GPU.

    Cool, didnt know you could copy stuff this early when the console itself hasnt even been released yet. Great idea tho.

    Why wouldn't they ? MS/Sony steal from Nintendo, but at least they run with it (refering to Nintendo's poor 1st party support of Motionplus; only 4 American titles published and only 3 developed with 1 Japan-only published title)

    A rumour isn't news.

    It's rumoured that the insides of the Wii-U are made of Jam.

    Actually, it's the other way around. Sony copies everything.

    Define copying. If it's something that hasn't been released yet, but is in R&D, is it considered copying? What I find amazing is that when someone make a working product (iPhone for example), it gives that company the right to claim a certain tech or style as their own (rectangular design and touch screen with icons?). As a consumer, I don't care who came first and who is the first to make a working concept. What I want is a working console with interesting games. If that is made possible, I'll gladly pay for a new console. In the mean time I'll enjoy all the great consoles made so far (and possibly buy a 360 (250GB model) if a good offer appears)..

    OT: I doubt the touch screen is at least anything like the one in the picture @OP. Just too.. well.. In layman's terms, nothing near ergonomic.

    Because whoever photoshopped that PoS didn't bother to put them in, or the guide button for that matter.

    No idea in which the order came, all I know is I saw the Wand after the Wiimote, the trophies after the achievments, and the PS3 avatars(no matter how much more awesome it is) after the 360 (which Microsoft stole from Nintendo). Also some patent Sony put down for a controller with a screen on it, like Wii U (and maybe the 720 -.-).

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Oh god, I know this is a rumor thread, but that picture is hilarious. For some reason I'm reminded of the PS3 boomerang design.

    If this is true Sony might as well jump on the bandwagon.

    I'm pretty sure they already did this with Windows Phone 7.
    It'll prolly just be a deeper integration with a richer experience?

    I like how they say "Like Apple's iPad" and "Like the sleek Sony Vita" in one sentence.

    ...catching on yet?

    ...no?

    The two are nothing alike. It's physically impossible to make something look like both of'em - the main characteristic of the iPad is that it's a rectangle with no buttons while the article clearly states that the controller will (would) feature them. All in all, this is some silly UK magazine that has little credibility. Not News, that is all.

    Obviously false rumors are, well, obviously false (and extremely unlikely).

    I would very much appreciate if upon deleting a post, the moderator responsible would at least leave a signature of his behind so that I know who to shake my fist at.

    I said "Valwin being Valwin" and reported the thread because, big suprise, it treats of pure fiction - another article with no merit whatsoever. It's called Tabloid Journalism and nobody likes that. The fact that the rumour was printed in a magazine doesn't make it credible if there is no proof to back it up whatsoever. Newsflash - magazines are full of crap. It's a valid opinion and I'm entitled to have those. Free speech and whatnot.

    If you can't stand valid critique then perhaps moderating's not for you.
