Sony Tablet P plays Playstation games… but probably horribly

Media_httpcdniwiredco_jejfm

Wired’s review of the new Sony P tablet states that: ‘It’s PlayStation certified, so you can play old-school PS games using onscreen PlayStation controls.’ But I note a lack of any joysticks, or buttons, or anything, so does that mean the controllers just appear on screen, like so many iPad game controls? That sounds terrible. How can that even begin to emulate the satisfaction of wrapping your hands round and over the stick, buttons and triggers of a Playstation controller? Let’s not assume touch screen, or any interface design, can be a multi-use device all the time.

    I saw somebody playing the PS Vita on the tube last Friday… wow, that looks nice. I thought about buying one, but the thing that turned me off was that all of the games can only be downloaded straight to the device. I went with the 3DS instead.
