The lights are on
Microsoft may have a controller in the works that can recognize the person holding it.
A recently discovered patent shows an Xbox 360 controller that can recognize a player, "using a hand-pressure signature." If it can remember who you are, then it may have some memory built into it. Microsoft similar interactivity with the Kinect, but personally, I have never been able to get it to recognize me, so I am skeptical about this new idea.
People often forget that the Wii remote has a little bit of storage capacity. The Wii remote won't recognize who you are just by touching it, but you can transport up to 10 Miis to another Wii console using the remote.

this is going to be problematic
Why? what use? why bother? seems like more tech that'll drive up the cost of controllers for no reason.
Ugh. Another *** Microsoft product....
As long as the buttons all become pressure sensitive it will be a nice improvement. As for controller hand memory aspect of it... just a gimmick if you ask me.
Will the controllers recognize if you're a dork too?
Those are really tiny hands...
Interesting built in memory chip in a controller still skeptical...
There are better ways to ID a player...
It already signs me in automatically why do I need this
on the box it says "100$ a month subscription to turn on".....
sounds pretty freaking sweet
How does any of this make it better than my other 2 controllers?
