Sixaxis + virtual keyboard = win

#1 Posted by Twizded (97 posts) -

Using Sixaxis with the virtual keyboard. Is one thing I didn't expect when switching from the X360. It's my favorite feature. Makes posting so much faster. I'm using a PS4 to post this. Does the PS3 have this feature also?

@twizded:

No one knows what your talking about.

@twizded: Nope, it's a new feature with the PS4.

What is this I don't even...

Using the six-axis to type with on PS4... Not that complicated.

Are you guys talking about this?

@The-Apostle:

If so that's on PS3, without the gyroscope thing.

PS3's was better due to auto-fill. Meh... old-fashioned keyboard is infinitely better anyway. >_>

Six-axis = gyroscope

Six-axis = gyroscope

Sixaxis = PS3 controller before we had DS3

@The-Apostle: Yup. It's called that because it has six-axis control.

I love my PS4... So glad I jumped ship on Xbox...

I wasn't aware of this. Still seems like it would be annoying to type by having to move the controller around and select each character. I'd rather just use a wireless keyboard or something if that's even possible. But I don't type enough on the Playstation to be bothered with purchasing anything.

You guys got me incredibly confused now, do we HAVE to use that "moving the controller" technique for typing on the PS4 or can we just use the sticks to navigate the letters and type (like we do on the PS3 currently)?

@GTR12: you can do it the "normal way". It's the default option.

Ok good.

I like it, but the cursor constantly drifts and needs to be re-centered. If they can fix that somehow I'd love it.

Are you kidding me? This thing is terrible.

It's most inaccurate thing i've ever used after sixaxis.
