Sony is not copying Nintendo.

They patented touch screen controller back in 2010, way before the Wii U got announced.

They ARE copying Nintendo.

You can patent whatever you want. Until you've actually USED it, your patent is as worthless as a diet consultant for Kirstie Alley.

Lol @ SDF Reassurance Squad coming in to pretend Sony couldn't innovate it's way out of a paper bag since the PS2:)

the playstation eyetoy for the ps2 was released in October 2003.

i would say that sony was just enhancing that feature with an easy to use and well tested single handed to two handed remote.

What I don't understand is they likely wouldn't be able to sell a new console with a Wii U like controller cheaper or at the same price as a Wii U so why bother? Why not simply keep gaining speed with what you do good for right now? Doesn't make sense.

You can't discuss the pros and cons about anything now a days without someone complaining.

Reminds me of the whole Wii/Move thing a while back, and the fact that Sony started R&D on the Move before Nintendo started with the Wii..

I don't really care who copies whom or who thought of it first.

What matters to me is that they take these ideas and execute; providing a good solution to consumers.
