Everyone's been pointing to the Speigel interview with Sony's Phil Harrison and kavetching that either a) he called the PlayStation 3 a "computer" or b) he defended the PS3 controller as not being a Nintendo rip. To which a) I could care less, it essentially is a computer and b) I could care less because it's not really the same controller.
But this was of note:
With that controller though, Phil notes "now for the first time we can read both the primary input, which might be through the sticks, and learn what the player is doing through the secondary movement, and add the two together." So to belabor the point a bit more, while Nintendo is trying to make their controller simpler and less scary ... Sony has just complicated theirs a bit more. See the lack of resemblence now?
