Imaizmu reveals that Kojima tried his hand at creating a controller

Kenichiro Imaizmu, producer of the Metal Gear Solid series at Kojima Productions, has revealed that Hideo Kojima had tried to build his own controller for Metal Gear Solid 4.

“We tried running electric shock waves, install a pulse reader … we also tried to build a controller that’s receptive to the strength of the [player's] grip,” he said. “We tried a lot, even a transforming controller.”

Sounds a bit painful, that shocking bit.

More over on Joystiq.

    I wonder how much cash they shat on that given it never materialised.

    freedoms_stain: think of how much they would have been able to charge for that kinda hardware *if* it did come into fruition though…
    it’s not like they were ever gonna be strapped for cash if they made too many prototypes of controllers, and it could have made the game (and possibly others, too) slightly more special, even if it was just an elaborate unnecessary gimmick *cough* motion sensing *cough*
