Evolution Of The Video Game Controller In Gifs

We've got a riddle for you: what starts with two, gains four, then eight, then 12, adds rumbles, then adds some weird motion detection, then gets a screen?

Well we didn't say it was a good riddle.

Monitors of all things techy, GadgetLove.com has documented the evolution of the modern video game controller in fine Gif form. Watch as Nintendo's early creations of Gunpei Yoki shift to eventually become the screen-wielding Wii U monster, contrasted with the muted shifts of PlayStation's Dualshock evolution. There's even less going on in the small shifts of the Xbox controllers, shrinking in size before moving a few details around.

Who knows - a few more console generations and we could be playing Fifa with our brains.
