As most of you know,many great games (mmo's,rts,moba's) on pc require lots of buttons to be hotkeyed to play at max effeciency and I would personally love to see some of these games ported to PSN since blizzard is now working with sony. There is a company out there called scuf gaming and for those of you who do not know what they produce, they produce specialized controllers for FPS games with extra buttons on the back so competitive players can drop shot, knife, jumpshot, etc. very easily. My idea is if they could make these controllers why not be able to make controllers with 5-10 mini buttons on the back that could be custom hotkeyed for ported pc games. Just like how some mice have buttons, the controller could be the same. We already have the touchpad now if we could have the buttons then we could in theory get the same experience a pc player does. They could also put a different amount of buttons on each controller and charge a different price. Just a thought i had today. What do you guys think?

I agree with Captain, some PC games are best left on the PC. They try to hard to cram the controls into one interface, it becomes too overwhelming.
Ps. I would love to know what that infinite button would do!
