Wish they'd go with a 360 controller setup with the sticks. Worst problem I have with the PS3 controller is that 1) it's tiny 2) the sticks are just too damn close to each other.

Yeah, nice call. I hadn't noticed that the stick and d-pad were reversed on the left side vs. 360 controller. Not sure why they'd do that since this can also be used on PC where users would already be used to the 360 layout.

While they say it's also a wireless controller for your PC, they're only advertising it for 600 series graphics cards, so it's not clear if it works with earlier cards, although I can't imagine it's tied to a specific graphics card for compatibility.

This is intriguing hardware, but I'm not sure what the interest/market would be for something like this. It seems unlikely you'd be able to ship the millions of units to makes something like this viable, especially with no killer app. Also, what's the price for something like this? Since a 7" tablet goes for about $170, I imagine this (with it's custom hardware) would probably go for $250?

And lastly, WILL IT PLAY ANGRY BIRDS??!?!!A!
