Got to mess around with it for about five minutes at gamestop.
I have to say it is a cool concept, but I just don't think it comes together.
The touch pad thing is the actual controller and it is absolutely huge. It gets really uncomfortable to hold. It isn't contoured to your hand it is just a rectangular pad.
I played the new Rayman on it, which was one of the playable demos, and you use the touch pad to do certain things. You would grab an obstacle with your finger or cut a rope so that Rayman can keep travelling through the level. Its a novel idea, but it really kind of takes away from the game because you have to constantly look away from your screen to this large cell phone sized touch screen.
There is no way to switch back and forth quickly making it visually cumbersome.
I'm sure there will be some cool ideas at some point, but from what I played I wasn't sold.
