Advanced Gaming Innovations is working on a new gaming controller that looks similar to the Wii U GamePad. The “Cross Plane” will also have some of the same functions as Nintendo’s touch-screen controller, and is designed to support PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Ouya. It will allow users to play an entire game strictly on its screen, akin to the Wii U GamePad’s Off-TV Play feature. The Cross Plane is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter. Read some of the project’s description below:
“The Cross Plane” is the worlds first multi-platform WVI (Wireless Video Interface) gaming controller that brings a new angle into the way we play modern video games. Designed to support gaming platforms like XBox 360, PlayStation 3, OUYA and PC, “The Cross Plane” puts your favorite games from your favorite platforms right to the palm of your hand, all in beautiful Hi-Def quality!
For the first time, PC users will have to opportunity to “Cut the cord” and take the full power of their machine anywhere in house. That means “Steam” can go with you to the couch or Crysis 3 can actually be played on a handheld.
The button layouts were carefully considered and based around what most console gamers would be used to. This layout went through many changes via 3D Printed case tests to make sure it felt comfortable and natural in your hands given the body style is flat out different from any controller (except the Wii U) on the market.
