I’m a gamer. And some of us remember different ploys these triple-a companies try to do for us to say “that looks cool enough, let’s play Skyrim on it, and see how it does, because Skyrim isn’t on enough consoles as it is.” Some of us may remember the PSP, Sony’s first attempt on a handheld, which was a phenomenal device, able to play not only most PS One games, but also other full-sized experiences, in the palm of your hands. Some of us remember the PS Vita, which was their last attempt on a handheld, which made major improvements, filled it to the brim with different devices and ploys that boggled everyone’s little minds, yet no one bothered to buy one, because they already had a PSP.
Why am I bringing the PS Vita up into discussion? Well, some of us may remember that the double-touch capabilities, of which was moved over to the PS4 controllers. Something that was used very commonly in a very good game called “TearAway,” was the backside-touchpad, something that was never used for anything else.
I was a big fan of the back touchpad. Some people complained that it was hard to tell where you were touching because you couldn’t see. I personally didn’t have this problem, and it, in my opinion, felt more natural, believe it or not. Chances are, many will not.
This is just a mild suggestion; doesn’t have to be seriously considered, but it would be quite amazing to have such an interesting device attached. I’m willing to accept the fact that many people may disagree with me, but I quite enjoy my PS Vita, specifically from this back-touch-pad, and I’m wondering if others agree. Specifically for this reason, though, I will prevent those who voted to be revealed, as I have been negatively-criticized for my viewpoint on this, to a fairly extreme level (why did you break my keyboard, Josh? It’s just a video-game console, and yes I will never get over it. IT COSTED 50 BUCKS!). If you wish people to know your viewpoint on this idea, you may leave a comment, I won’t judge you. Others may, but I won’t. Others may cause vandalism (Josh), but I won’t.
- I support the idea of a touch-pad on the back of the device.
- I do not support the idea of a touch-pad on the back of the device.
- I do not have a preference.
