Sony VP talks about 'a big secret' announcement for May
Playstation brand related
Hiroshi Sakamoto teases a Playstation related big announcement on just before the E3 starts in June
The rumor windmill is still spinning but this time, faster than ever. It seems that Sony Electronics VP of Home Entertainment Hiroshi Sakamoto has pronounced in a slightly cryptical way that they have a big announcement to show prior to the E3 in June and that it was Playstation brand related. We all hope that this announcement could be about Playstation 4.
According to Engadget:
He told Emol in response to a question about "a new announcement related to the new PlayStation," that while the news is "still a big secret," the PlayStation side of Sony, "are getting ready for it." He of course doesn't directly refer to a "PlayStation 4" or the rumored "Orbis" internal project name. Sakamoto adds that the PlayStation team are "focused on E3," but, "the announcement could take place at that time, or maybe even before, in May." Sounds like Sony's toying with a pre-E3 event for its next-gen console -- E3 takes place on June 11 - 13 -- though Mr. Sakamoto's comments are still ambiguous enough that we can't be sure. This is a company that launched three different major hardware iterations of the PlayStation 3, so anything could happen.
When the interviewer follows up on Sakamoto's tease-y answer by asking, "But are you getting ready for a big anoucement or something complementary?," Sakamoto continues speaking in ambiguities. "Probably the former, on that date we hope to deliver big news, but we must wait until May at least," he says. We've followed up with Sony for more, but don't expect to hear much beyond a wink and a smile.

Yep I agree - the controller concept seems to have its "legs too wide open"!
Speaking of Sony and their recent controller designs, who did they hire for that? Chronic masturbators?
Honestly I want them to keep the DS style, I like it, it fits comfortable, maybe if they made it a bit thicker (or added grooves for my fingers on the back), the only change I'd like to see, is swap the location of the left thumb stick and the D-pad
Honestly I want them to keep the DS style, I like it, it fits comfortable, maybe if they made it a bit thicker (or added grooves for my fingers on the back), the only change I'd like to see, is swap the location of the left thumb stick and the D-pad so that the D-pad/thumbstick placement is more or less the same as the Xbox/Xbox 360 pads!
That I can happily agree on, and I would think that a cross-shaped D-pad similar to that of Nintendo's D-pad design would make a near-perfect controller!
Instead of me being a complete and total dick and a prick, I should be on my best behaviour!
