Just a little more info on that holy-grail of accessible controllers...

This is a good step towards what I'd love to see:

A PC (unfortunately has to run Linux) - with keyboard or mouse compatible controller - that connects to a PS3. From this players can use a wide range of peripherals (head-tracker, track-ball, glide-pad, eye-tracker via the mouse compatibility - and likely joystick use via the keyboard compatibility). They can reconfigure the controls on games that didn't have the foresight to offer that option - and play.

Next step would be wonderful if it could run on a Windows/Mac/iOS operating system - and offer player assist modes (latching modes / auto-fire modes / pre-set move routines) - and then be used on an Xbox 360, Wii, iPad and future machines.

One day...
