Well, we could even go further in that Sony copied Nintendo with analogue sticks and shoulder buttons...

But I wont go on. As I dont want to act the (Nintendo) fanboy

Actually the PlayStation controller layout comes from Sony's work with the CD drive for the Super Nintendo (how the PlayStation came about in the first place) the sticks were added after Nintendo's success with them on the N64, the positioning was simply a matter of them not fitting anywhere else.
I agree the manufacturers influence each other, but Sony have always shown very little in the way of innovation. Which is why they only seem to pick up ideas after someone else tries it first.

You can't "copy" hardware when it comes to computers and game consoles. The technology has always been there, but it's how the companies use it. So what if the PS3 wand looks exactly like the Wiimote. It just means that piece of hardware just increases the capabilities of the system. Allowing the user more options to play a game. Sure Nintendo might started using it first, and they will always be remembered for doing so.

Besides, all a console is a pre-made computer with a unique operating system.

THAT IS SOO FAKE! Its a classic controller in front of a Xbox 360 Controller (done pretty good though)

Pro? Sounds PROfessional (LOL)

You do know the Classic Controller was based off the SNES controller, right?

Therefore, not stealing.

Also, of course Microsoft's not innocent, they steal the most!

Well move is better than wii. In wii the movements are unreal. Move(for instance boxing) actually fights like you actually would in real life.

They already put my ideas into practice. Nintendo saves money and they are using me and I am the fool.

How did sony copy nintendo with analog sticks?
It didnt, because We've had it since the psone, when it came out with the first white one with analog sticks.

@WolfieBoy:
Um, no. The Dualshock controller for the PSone didn't exist until AFTER the N64 came out. Now, admittedly, the Dualshock WAS the first controller with TWO analog sticks, but it didn't predate the N64.
