You probably don’t like Xbawks controllers because you all have little girl hands.
Screens should not be on controllers.

I don’t mind a screen as long as it’s not directly involved in game play but a fancy screen for menu options and what not, I’ll take that.

It’s a slippery slope. Soon enough you’ll be having to mash your palm on the screen on your controller to make your mans move on the teevee!

I remember screens on controllers rom the Dreamcast, not my favorite idea.
But I guess it could be ok.
Having it act as a move however is a good idea if any games ever turn up or it that are not one shot gimicks (like the occasional use of the sixaxis)

I honestly think it won’t be a screen, just a touch pad which will either add gimmicky actions to the gameplay, or give more flexibility with artificially adding buttons to the controller.
