Kojima Looked at Transforming, Pulse Reading, Shocking Controllers for MGS4

An ever-growing complaint among gamers is the increasing number of custom controllers and peripherals needed to play so many new games properly. Wheels, guitars, drums, mics, guns, balance boards… and on top of all that, Hideo Kojima himself tried to work in a new controller during the early stages of developing Metal Gear Solid 4.

And some of what they tried was, in a word, shocking.

As part of a series of video interviews in which Microsoft has gathered the thoughts of developers regarding Project Natal, MGS4 Producer Kenichiro Imaizmu recalls many such experiments. “We tried running electric shock waves, install a pulse reader … we also tried to build a controller that’s receptive to the strength of the [player’s] grip,” he revealed. “We tried a lot, even a transforming controller.”

As others have pointed out, one can only wonder if Kojima’s pulse-reader had any bearing on Nintendo’s decision to go forward with their own, despite having used the idea before.
