PlayStation Controller Idea

9 replies 159 views Edited Aug 6, 2013
I would like to see different sized controller's. I for one have large hands so like the feel of a bigger controller, it is just easier to use all the buttons. I am sure people with small hands would agree having a controller that is smaller would feel perfect for there hands. I'm not asking for a bunch of different sized controllers just maybe 2 different sizes. What are your thoughts?

I agree with what you are saying as long as it would be a practical.  Im not sure how much goes into the controllers or anything, im sure a fair amount.  But not thinking about the time, effort and money it would take to produce I would like to see it as well.  Also hard for me to say without having the ps4 controller in my hand yet, I liked the size of the ps3 controller.  If it is practical im sure someone would produce it.

Atari, Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, PS1, Sega Saturn, PS2, PSP, PS3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3ds and PS4

You do realize that the ones that Sony sells aren't the only PS3-compatible controllers, right? There are a bunch of third-party controllers that will provide you exactly what you want. Check GameStop or Amazon.

Suddenly everyone is Andre the Giant?

 

For the amount they are going to sell it's most likely not practical to make more than one controller, especially a larger one that most people wouldn't need. Especially when they can get by using a little finesse and adjusting their playing habits, and not choking the life out of the current controller.

I'm not talking about third-party controllers. I want to see a PlayStation brand controller. And no I'm not Andre the Giant.

This thread again..... it's called: adaptation. As the Captain already stated, adjust your habits; we all do it, so can you. Sorry it's put so bluntly, but it's the truth.

I'm not saying I haven't adapted. This is merely a want vs. need situation.

That "original XBox controller" was widely ridiculed, lambasted, and a source of embarrassment for Microsoft, so much so that they quickly , and rather quietly began selling the Japanese controller called the "S", in it's place later that same year.

 

Merely making something bigger is not "improving" it. Especially if that's all you're doing, increasing the size, and not making any changes.
