Have you ever wondered why the face buttons of the PlayStation controllers are so different to others?
This video looks to answer your questions by diving into the history of video game controllers and how Sony entered the gaming market.
Since video games have existed there’s been the need to make your avatar on the screen actually do things. At first this was done with simple knobs and joysticks and when video games moved from the arcades to the living room this seemed to be the way things were going to stay.
But there was a certain newcomer to the home console market that would change gamepads forever (it was Nintendo). As they grew though they would also force the hand of Sony.
What is the history of Nintendo and PlayStation? How did the console wars between them begin? Why does the PlayStation controller use shapes? All of this will be answered in the video... so give it a watch.
