I was hoping there’d be some hands-on with the Google Stadia controller at GDC, but alas! It is simply here under glass. You can play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey via the cloud here at the Stadia booth at GDC, although that’s something you could have already experienced via Project Stream.
It’s just a Dualshock 4 without the touchpad and lightbar.
Really wish more companies would get on board the offset analog sticks precedent that Microsoft set. The design is way more ergonomic due to the way your thumbs naturally rest when holding the controller, and the only reason the original Dualshock had the sticks on the bottom was to reduce the amount of retooling that needed to be done on the injection molds.
