    The more I think about it, the more I'm in two minds about the controller. On the one hand, it's cool that you can de-clutter the TV and use your console like a DS. On the other hand, I'm unclear on the merits of resistive. Is it to uncomplicate the controls for developers or is it just cheaper? Could it possibly be more expensive than capacitive considering no one uses resistive?

    The touch elements risk always feeling tacked on, and even though the DS came out before the iPad, it feels very reactionary. The Wiimote was a genuine "I can't believe no one has done this before" and it felt like it had a clarity of purpose that the compromise of the U Gamepad doesn't.

    BUT what if, like the Vita, it's less of a compromise and more another way to interact with games? Is that a good thing or just throwing shit against the wall?
