Rumor: Even more features for the new Sixaxis?

Let the speculation begin! Kaz Hirai has tempted us yet again with his fancy words and vague confirmations. He has let slip the new Sixaxis will contain a few more features in addition to the TouchSense rumble capabilities. In fact, he said, "a variety of other things." Unless he means the TouchSense. In that case, boring! Otherwise, we could see anything from a new set of buttons (L4 and R4, really?) or a remote volume control for game music. Maybe a microphone? How about a magnifying glass? We'd really like to see your most inventive ideas to incorporate into the controller, so why don't you go nuts and give us your "features" to add?

2. how about a shock feature that lets a jolt out every time you do something stupid like spam a mic online =D

4. i want my controller to look like a boomerang! lol

5. I think they should change the L2 and R2 buttons to be more like the xbox triggers because the triggers always slip out of my hand. And also the analog stick: instead of being round, make it curve inward a bit like the xbox controller because that slips out of my hands when i play super stardust hd.

6. oops, i posted too fast

7. It's going to get longer battery life and will be 33% lighter

8. The shock feature is a good one. I vote for that one.

How about a breathalyser that can read your blood alcohol level. Or, how about bong attachment, the more you puff the "higher" your character can jump.

9. @ac: Maybe less vaseline on the hands and you won't have so much slippage :D

10. the first new feature the 6axis should receive is the total and absolute reduction of desync(s) when the controller is working via bluetooth. Thats got to be the first step.. I love the 6axis controller, I love the placement of the buttons, - it's still basically a SNES controller... but before you add more, fix the basics.

11. @Kevil

douchebag. j/k...but not really.

the triggers and the thumbsticks are superior on the 360 and it would be nice to have them on the PS3 controller.

the L2 and R2 buttons are nice and springy, but curving them like an actual *gasp* gun would be a greater improvement.

12. What if they include 1GB of internal memory so i can store music on my sixaxis so i can use it as an mp3 player? =D i like paul's idea =P

Posted at 4:37PM on Jul 20th 2007 by miguelon918

13. What they need is what, astonishingly, no console has done before: They need to have ALL games be able to play with a mouse and keyboard if you wish. I know that once in awhile a game will slip through that has that capability, but if Sony really wants to steal PC gaming's marketshare (and why wouldn't they?), then they're going to need mouse/keyboard capability as an option to play in all games. I mean, if the XMB supports it why doesn't games? Hellllooooooooo???


p.s. Don't even talk to me about the Splitfish Frag FX; my friend got one and it's no way NEAR as accurate as a real mouse is. Disappointing.

14. bed pan so I don't have to get up in the middle of resistence online... stupid bladder

Posted at 4:57PM on Jul 20th 2007 by Ally Mohamed

15. Let the controller be capable of connecting to the PSP to be played with it, a Screenshot bottom, and let it charge from an outlet, maybe a skip song bottom, and bottom lock?!

16. Two little holes, one on each side of the controller. Seriously. For a wrist strap, so people don't trash their TVs playing High Velocity Bowling.

Posted at 5:21PM on Jul 20th 2007 by apease

17. two track balls underneath, so it can double for a mini rover that can move about independently and play games with you not unlike our old friend 'ROB' the robot from the NES.

Posted at 5:27PM on Jul 20th 2007 by komrad

18. It's probably gonna get a led light in the PS button so that everyone who modded their old SIXAXIS will be happy. And all the ideas posted before are great xD :D

Posted at 5:32PM on Jul 20th 2007 by Darkdrium777

19. Maybe the controller should feature touch sencing buttons like the buttons for the eject and power on the ps3. The whole controller can feature this it may be kind of cool.

20. "Maybe less vaseline on the hands and you won't have so much slippage"
