    Xbox boss Peter Moore hinted that Microsoft is "quite possibly" working on a simplified game controller designed to attract new gamers who might be intimidated by traditional gamepads. At a recent EA Community Event, Moore said the company is looking at "Any way that we can play and make games easier and more intuitive, that takes the intimidation factor away from what is a pretty complex device now when you look at the controller." "Shoulder buttons, triggers, analog sticks, d-pads - I mean, there's a lot going on there."

    Compare it to the old Atari 2600 joystick, Moore suggested. Moore also explained that his 14 year-old daughter loves racing games, particularly Project Gotham Racing, but "She's frustrated because the button configurations, the use of triggers... She just doesn't like it". Furthermore he said that Microsoft is "not going to force anything that is not going to be intuitive and innovative" - which could suggest that the company is unlikely to follow in Sony and Nintendo's footsteps by producing a motion-sensing controller.

    Nope, found it on google. But past trends tell me Sony will steal it first, then Microsoft will steal it from Sony.
