To counter the buzz surrounding the Microsoft Kinect, the Sony PlayStation YayButtons site launched to prove just how important buttons are. The site forces you to click buttons on a remote to access site content, and witty Kevin Butler quips assail users with missives meant to emphasize the utility of the very buttons Microsoft wants gamers to ditch.

Implications - The featured images show you what the new Sony controller for the PlayStation Move will look like. It has a bright ball on the top that glows in colors such as pink, green, yellow and blue. The controller also has a wrist strap, similar to that of a Wii controller. When you visit the YayButtons site, little bulbs pop up when you click a button and say things such as "more like 'not play games that suck' important."
