    DualShock patent for touchscreen instead of touchpad

    ConsoleHax
    By ConsoleHax,
    According to a recently published patent application from Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC, the next generation of DualShock controllers may receive a touchscreen instead of a touchpad. Although the information in the document is not entirely clear with what the company plans to do with the screen.     On behalf of Sony Ryuji Nakayama, Ennin Huang and Nathan Gary invented the patent that was submitted on September 29, 2017. The submission however does not mean that Sony will actually use it, technology companies often have their ideas patented to protect innovations.   Personally I find that the current touchpad doesn't offer real advantages during gaming or navigation and I often forget the controller even has one. This also seems the case with most game developers who never really embraced the use of it during gaming. It would be kinda cool though to see an interactive map on your controller during gaming, so who knows what future gaming might bring. On the other hand it probably wouldn't be feasible, a controller with such a high end touchscreen would be immensely costly.   The full patent can be read as a PDF here: http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&docid=10099121&IDKey=96543379056A   Via: Hardware.info / ConsoleHax.com  

    Happy Birthday PS3

    By GregoryRasputin,
    Twelve whole years ago today the PS3 was released in Japan, that was at least two years before members of the forum such as @DarkElementPL were born,     The PS3 does not have the same amount of love from Sony as it did all those years ago, but the scene gives it the love it deserves, you can see such instances in places like PSX-Place, Reddit and of course here at PlayStationHaX.   I haven't updated the website in about two years, but that doesn't mean what already is there is not a good read, as it is probably one of the best console histories you will ever read and i will update it when i have time, you can read all about the PS3's life below:

    PlayStation Classic Uses Open Source Emulator

    GregoryRasputin
    By GregoryRasputin,
    I am sure by now you have heard of the PlayStation Classic, the tiny replica of the original PlayStation, with twenty games embedded what we did not know is what hardware or software the device runs, however we found out on Thursday thanks to an article by Kotaku that the PlayStation Classic runs the open source Emulator PCSX Rearmed     Sadly it seems to be a bastardised version of the Emulator and doesn't have many of the great features that PCSX Rearmed has if you were to use it on a PC, i cannot suggest anyone buys the PlayStation Classic, yes it looks awesome, but for the same price, you could buy a damaged original PlayStation, a Raspberry Pi, and SD card and a control pad and install PCSX on your Raspberry Pi, then fit the Raspberry Pi inside the PlayStation case.   The Raspberry Pi isn't the only device you could get to put inside a PlayStation case, there are a multitude of devices you could use, PSTV, Nintendo Wii and many more, you could even grab a small PC motherboard and mod it in there, there is really no reason to spend all that money on a PlayStation Classic that has a miserable line up of games, when you could do so much more and have so much fun creating your own PlayStation Classic   Will you be buying the PlayStation Classic?

    By GregoryRasputin,
    The console scenes seem to have an abundance of app's made for Windows PC users, the apps for Mac and Linux users is quite sparse and it is awesome when someone releases something for those platforms. Developer nabilfreeman created a script for his Mac to enable him to split large PS3 game files, here is a quote from the source:     Source Download

    8BitDo GC & Wii Classic Controller adapter for Switch

    TheZander
    By TheZander,
    Game accessory company 8BitDo is releasing a product this December 7th ( just in time for Smash Ultimate) which is a wireless adapter for a GameCube or Classic Controller for the Wii that works with the Nintendo Switch. It has a built in screenshot and home menu button. The price on Amazon is 19.99 so if you still have a GameCube controller that's the cost of using it with the Switch ( as of now, or they may already be similar products idk).      Source  https://www.polygon.com/deals/2018/11/7/18065872/nintendo-switch-gamecube-controller-adapter-super-smash-bros-ultimate-8bitdo?utm_campaign=polygon&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter       Now you are all probably curious as to how someone such as I was able to become aware of such a product despite my dull wit. You would be correct in assuming so, however the 'via' source has wished to remain un-named. I will then not divulge the identity of the user who may engage in actions involved in the deliquesce of suns.
