Hope it never happens. Sorry for being a dinosaur but let's just put down the mobiles for one minute and just have proper controllers!.

And when I’m getting texts or phone calls ensuring that I can’t play and talk or answer a text...yay

Look at how many times we have seen failure in input mechanisms that try to replace a controller. Let's just stop trying to make this happen.

I even turned off motion control on my Switch controllers because it made my bow and arrow in Breath of the Wild jitter about when I was trying to kill things.

Ugh no. Not a fan of this. Hope this is just a patent claim and they don't actually do this because what a bad idea.

Nope. This is why I won't ever hop on the VR trend. No controller? Not interested.

Dear God... No thanks. I'll just use a controller thank you.

The new generation of gamer (& I use that term VERY lightly) is just making game experiences awful. Pay to Play, Pay to Skip, and Pay to Win Micro-transactions & Loot Boxes. And they want to play Cell Phones... ugh

Thankfully Sony PlayStation is slow to change. And I personally love it.
Poor Xbox fans. Phil's putting Xbox IP's everywhere, with free access to XBL. More Hardware announcements than games. What a joke platform

Not a fan of this at all. I much prefer my controller in hand. I already don't like using my phone for mobile games, no interest in replacing it on my consoles.

hes talking about if it goes towards motion controller only like PlayStation move only gameplay, its not bad its actually fun but dont get rid of DUALSHOCK play for move play, move should be optional unless its a full dive VR like Sword Art Online :) :O

I kind of like the idea of being able to hang my phone up on my monitor as a rearview mirror in racing games.
