Xbox One controller designer: Touch screen controller not useful to consumers

#1Shovel_BreakPosted 5/21/2013 11:24:34 AM
Im watching Spike TV Xbox One coverage and the controller designer said they examined adding a touch screen to the controller of Xbox One, but found it not useful to the consumer and would take away more than add anything

They make great remotes if you have a well designed app.

Instead they included all those other all-important features.

Clearly, if a Microsoft designer says it is so, then it must be true. No biased opinions or contractual obligations whatsoever.

I feel it would be better than having to wave around and talk to your tv like it looks like you will be doing
