Cross Plane game pad controller takes to Kickstarter

Thursday, 5th September 2013 23:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Cross Plane is a cross-platform controller for Ouya, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with an embedded video screen; like the Wii U Game Pad, Vita Remote Play or Nvidia Shield, it’s designed to free you from your TV and monitor by streaming to a handheld device.

Cross Plane boasts a 7″ screen with 720p resolution, a d-pad, twin analog sticks and rumble, but no motion, touch, microphone or camera functions.

The peripheral manages to support so many different platforms via swappable control packs; you pop in the cartridge for the system you want to use, and change whenever you like.

The unusual third-party peripheral is being funded via Kickstarter, and is looking for $350,000. Pledges including a Cross Plane unit begin at $349, and creators Advanced Gaming Solutions are targeting a May 2014 release.

One important note is that the Cross Plane won’t work on Xbox 360 models without HDMI support.

    Looks interesting but at $350, a bit too high. Makes me appreciate the Wii U Game Pad even more :)

    A really nice concept, but 350$ is way too high. Maybe ~200$ would be more appropriate.

    That’s far too expensive and it’s aesthetically ugly. The Shield is actually going to be cheaper, and more aesthetically pleasing. I’ll just get that instead.
