Many Modern Controllers Have Elements Added To Prevent Games Being Emulated Easily?

Anyone think that *unique* elements such as Six-axis and Nintendo Motion Control were added not only for gameplay functions but to prevent games being emulated easily on computers due to the sixaxis functions and similar not found in other controller/keyboards.

Personally I think it is a small factor, although flower and flow was good with sixaxis I still believe someone in Nintendo and Sony said "Think about the future, if these modern games are really good people will play them and not buy new games. However if we add this controller scheme the next generation wouldn't be able to emulate our games easily because these controllers will be rarer and the hardware still has to be bought."

Any thoughts?

I don't think the decision to incorporate new features has anything to do with preventing emulation simply because actually emulating the hardware at all smoothly is a far more serious problem. Additionally the Wii and 360 controllers can both be used with a computer so that's not going to stop emulation either.

Thanks for the thought......do you like elements such as six-axis? (I liked it flying games and flower/flow)

Those controllers suck generally. Unique and for some games It is very clever but it's overused and not necessary on 9/10 and spoils the game . You might be right though but seems odd to limit software for future use on newer consoles via say virtual/arcade/psn 4 or 5 downloads etc

The power of selling remakes.

since both the wii mote and the sixaxis are standard bluetooth devices, i doubt future emulation will be a problem.
