crossplaneNow here is a Kickstarter project that you might be interested in helping out – the Cross Plane, a cross-platform controller as its name suggests which will play nice with a variety of consoles and platforms, including the Ouya, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. What makes the Cross Plane even more special apart from its cross-platform compatibility? Well, it will also come with an embedded video screen similar in nature to that of the Wii U Game Pad, Vita Remote Play or NVIDIA Shield. The whole idea of the Cross Plane is to give you freedom from the TV and monitor through the wonders of direct streaming.

The Cross Plane will arrive with a 7” display with 720p resolution, a D-pad, twin analog sticks and rumble capability, although you can forget about having any kind of motion, touch, microphone or camera functions. One of the main reason it is capable of supporting a variety of platforms is due to its swappable control packs which you pop in the cartridge for the system that you want to use, before changing it according to your whim and fancy. Right now, the Cross Plane needs a whopping $350,000 to get off the ground, and pledges for the Cross Plane will start from $349 onwards with a May 2014 release date being targeted. Just bear in mind that the Cross Plane will be unable to run on Xbox 360 models that lack HDMI support.
