i think we really need to stick it to sony and get 12 axis controllers so we can play hypercubials the acceleromaters could be made into tacheometers and not only by sound and vibration but by time and distance we could generate totally and completely but newly interactive A.I. by which it understands circumstantial inevitability as its construct and generated randomly but through wifi analysis we could generate another universe of gaming and on top of everything if we were to merge this with an idea of universal display and interaction such as internet and phone there would be endless possibilities not only that but if the console opened up into a laptop i would certainly pay 1000 dollars for it and 2000 to 2500 if a controller came out of the pc
