Microsoft podría presentar un gamepad mejorado para Xbox One en el E3

El E3 siempre ha sido el momento escogido por Microsoft para anunciar novedades en el hardware de sus consolas y prueba de ellos son los viejos rediseños de Xbox 360 (modelo slim), que primero fueron mostrados en la conferencia de prensa que suelen llevar a cabo en el The Galen Center de Los Ángeles. Así que no sería raro ver este año algo referente a un gamepad mejorado, con nuevas funciones, mirad.


Internet se adelanta

No sabemos si antes de tiempo o no, pero está claro que en Microsoft han corrido demasiado en su web de soporte, que ha visto cómo el gamepad de Xbox One contaba de repente con una funcionalidad nueva. O mejor dicho, con un puerto de conexión que a día de hoy no existe en los controladores que tenemos en casa.

Y es que aunque el gráfico del gamepad que tenéis debajo pueda parecer idéntico al modelo que llegó con la consola en noviembre de 2013, tiene un elemento diferenciador que es el punto número 16: un conector para minijack de 3,5 mm.

Xbox One nuevo gamepad.

Eso significa que Microsoft adopta la misma solución que Sony en su Dualshock 4 para ponernos un ‘conector de cascos’ en el mando de la consola por si queremos, no solo escuchar lo que ocurre en el juego sin molestar a nadie, sino comunicarnos con unos ‘headsets‘ para las partidas multijugador. Sin tener que recurrir a un modelo estándar de la compañía que encima encarece su precio.

Anuncio en el E3, a la venta…

Así que de cara a esa conferencia del E3 de Los Ángeles ya tenemos un nuevo hardware que llevarnos a la boca aunque faltan por conocerse los detalles de su fecha de lanzamiento. Si nada lo impide, en los mismos días de celebración de la feria podríamos tenerlo ya en las tiendas porque tampoco es un accesorio que necesite de demasiado bombo y platillo para lanzarse… aunque nunca se sabe.

Así que si estás pensándote comprar un nuevo gamepad de Xbox One, lo mejor que puedes hacer es esperar, ¿o acaso te da igual la presencia de ese conector minijack? Contadnos.

      I am no gamer. So, imagine my spsurire when a friend brought over his PS3, got me a little tipsy, and made me play Portal! I was captivated. I’ve always had a party-limited soft-spot in my heart for two-player fighting games, but quickly loose interest. They’re not something I’d ever play alone against the AI, either! Portal, though, reminded me a little of The 7th Guest’, and with a long-awaited sequal coming out soon, I ordered a copy of the venerable Orange Box’ from Valve. The problem was, after getting used to the PS3 controller, I found myself unwilling to use the bloody keyboard and mouse for everything, especially at speed. I began researching USB controllers, but had a hard time finding a recommendation for one that could be used both in Windows 7 and XP. Further, I wanted a controler that would at least be recognized by Ubuntu, as my home ecosystem is very Multi-Coded’. On the recommendation of a friend who is a staunch supporter of Logitech, I checked out the current line-up of X-input or Direct-X switchable controllers. Now, they’re not cheap. However, as my friend pointed out, they’re reliable, good quality, and built to last. As my Windows 7 machine is to be my primary box for gaming, I tried it first there. I was hoping that drivers wouldn’t be necessary, and the controller did work the first time Then the thing didn’t register as connected to USB at all for three startups running. I installed the most recent software direct from logitech’s website, and all was well. Nothing needed to be mapped. Windows XP was even easier, switched the output using the switch on the back of the controller to Direct-X, and all was well. Even got it to work through the USB server on my virtual machine in Ubuntu! The controller is comfortable, responsive, and has a very quality feel for a hunk of plastic! Further, one could use those darned rumble packs for personal massage purposes What a kick! I don’t like the mapping function provided in the logitech software, but it’s an admitted hack in the first place. You’re just doing keyboard mapping through software! Overall, it’s a small price to pay to force an emulator to do one’s will for truly ancient games, and a welcome piece of forceware at end of day. The attraction of using this as an X-Box 360 controller doesn’t even register for me. As far as I’m concerned, those things should all be burned, anyway (though I understand most folks would disagree with me). Overall, great job! Quality controller, and people in other reviews are right. The analog thumbsticks loosen up with intense playing. Depending on the game, you can even turn sensitivity up and down!
