Bleszinski Wants Less Buttons on the Next Xbox


Posted July 9, 2008 - By TylerColfax

Epic Games Designer and Gears of War Mastermind, Cliff Bleszinski, said recently, "I hope if there's a new Xbox that there'll be fewer buttons on the controller." Never has the 33 year-old lifelong hardcore gamer sounder more old than in that moment.

Wisely, he elaborated saying: "I think you could do things with a built-in camera or a little motion sensitivity. You look at the Wii controller with less buttons - they added functionality by doing waggle. Not a lot of games use the waggle well, but Super Mario Galaxy for example uses it perfectly. Zak and Wiki uses it rather well."

So, did Nintendo hit on something with motion detection and how will this effect the controllers of the next generation of consoles? Are the dual analog sticks' days numbered? Only time and corporate espionage will tell.
