actually they ripped of half the ds and used it as the controller. no copying involved.


so they ripped off the Playstation 2 by having dual analog?


Actually, Sony ripped off the Atari 2600. The 2600 has a few games that require one player to use two joystick controllers to play it.

Touchscreen in the middle, buttons on both sides.

The Vita is tanking right now, and NIntendo should have known better than just blatantly copy the Vita and iPad, and slap a $350 pricetag on it.



Everything on the Vita (except for the awful arrow d-pad & rear touch pad) are actually Nintendo made first and foremost. The touch screen, analog stick, diamond layout, the L & R buttons, SELECT & START buttons, etc., were all once invented by Nintendo before Sony copy them.

Everyone copied Pong, ok?!


Actually, Pong copied the Magnavox Odyssey's tennis game.
