Are you a fan of tradition when it comes to the appearance of your gaming equipment? Are you dreaming of a retro controller reminiscent of a Pegasus console? Or do you like more extravagant models and have an eye for sci-fi video game controllers? In either case, you have come to the right place! Today we’ll talk a bit about past video game controllers, but will also touch on the future of the game controller. We will give you a look at the futuristic Xbox Series S controller and PlayStation design ideas too.
Past video game controllers
Then 1974 brought the Pong console with two controllers sold as Pong systems. The first joystick hardware, on the other hand, was created for the multi-game console, the Atari 2600, in 1977. 1983 saw a completely new approach when Nintendo released its Family Computer and then Nintendo Entertainment System, with controllers resembling today’s accessories. However, the first truly resembling today’s controllers was the one created for the Sega Mega Drive. Nevertheless, this was nothing compared to the craze caused by Sony’s release in 1993. This controller became the forerunner of today’s hardware because it stood out from the competition. Its originality lay in the fact that the first controller from Sony contained a directional pad and a start and select button. On top of this, it already featured the four front buttons we all know so well, with a green triangle, a blue cross, a red circle and a pink square.
Future of the game controller
Wondering what the future holds for game controllers? They may soon be completely forgotten. OK, maybe not so soon, because the whole process will probably take decades. However, Emotiv Systems recently introduced EEG technology to the world of gaming. Its developers claim to have developed the first high-quality brain-computer interface (BCI) that reads and interprets both conscious and unconscious thoughts, emotions, head movements and facial expressions. The device is expected to allow the recognition of 30 different expressions, emotions and actions. Nevertheless, it is only in its infancy and probably, as was the case with VR technology, it will still be a long time before it is perfected and reaches gamers’ homes, so in the meantime, we present ideas for futuristic controllers that combine traditional technology and modern design.
