I am not surprised at all by this because a few years back they was alot of talk on how gaming platforms would do battle with desktop computers. Could this be the death of the PC due to the fact this basically all the functions of a normal keyboard?
Whatever the case I think that is a great addition to gaming controllers and should be very popular in the coming years.
Sony has just announced a keypad peripheral that sits on top of a DualShock 3 and SIXAXIS to allow QWERTY typing (it also appears to have its own Bluetooth connection and power source). A lot like the keypad Microsoft released a while back for the 360, it also has a touchpad for mouse support as well (that could even be used in some games).
