After the gimmicky mess that was the Vita, I wouldn't even be surprised.

You should be. The Vita failed so hard that it should surprise anyone if they ever decided to do anything similar again.

Boomerang or bust!
Though the PS engineers are pretty awesome! Pulse Elite is sweet =), but not having to sign in to start the manager app. There better be some heavy under the table deals with SEGA (Dreamcast) about this.
I do hope they're not feeling pressured by Ninty (owned by MS) to launch, make a good controller & let critics decide if it's revolutionary.

Yes, it will have dual-analog sticks.
Its just rumored to have a touch-pad at the center of the controller where the Start/ Select buttons were.


That's great. The one thing we needed was shorter battery life. </sarcasm>

^ It's not going to have a touch-screen, but a pad.
So it shouldn't waste any more electricity than the current controller.
At least, that is if all the rumors are true.

Here is a representation of what it could look like (may be accurate, & may not be)...

It wasn't specific to the PS4. I was really referring to all the recent gimmicks. Kinect, Vita, Wii U.

Like sony would do something this stupid... Sure they've done stupid things in the past, but this is beyond repair -- This is like alienating the only audience that buys their products. It's like going with a non guarantee over a guarantee.
It takes a true sophistocrat, like myself, to bring about total change to gamefaqs--you all love my judicious topics & the debate I bring.
