Concave the thumbsticks a little, use pressure sensitive R2/L2 but not drop offs. Either trigger-like or better yet, make them squared like the DS2 controllers. Don't touch anything else.

I want them to add a push to talk button on the underside or something. Hate it when everyone has a voice activated mics.

Sony should just go motion gaming, look what that did to the Wii Sales.

My 7 year old brother would love that so much.

I wouldn't mind if they actually used the old boomerang style.. the only thing they'd need to change though is make the handles on it shorter. If it originally had shorter handles I don't think it'd have looks so weird

@ScubbaSteve actually developers can already do that with normal controllers.. I remember on the PS2 for BF2:MC, you had to hold the square button to chat online. It worked out pretty well

Gamestop had pretty good alternative ps2 controllers, wouldn't mind if the new controller took some design ques. http://www.google.com/searc... http://www.google.com/searc...

I've always been against the idea of trigger-like lower shoulder buttons on the DS. I REALLY like the notion of putting my birdy fingers and indexes over all the shoulder buttons (something that you can't do when you have concave triggers).

It makes playing KZ3 and Starhawk a lot easier this way.

Make it the best controller known to man.

Just fix some small minor improvements and they'll be set....no need to change the entire design. The DS is one of the best controllers out there as it's an all rounder controller when it comes to different genres.

They do need to change the rumble thing though. It was a pain (for us and them) this generation so a new way to do that is a must but I agree. It is a good controller. It just needs minor tweaks

onyoursistersback1282d ago

what is wrong with the rumble?! i think all it has to do is rumble, (2 speeds) it either rumbles or doesn't rumble.

iamnsuperman1282d ago

@onyoursistersback

I mean in relation to the patent infringement we had this generation. They have a licence to use it but for Sony's sake (so the fiasco doesn't happen again and they don't have to pay out again) and for our sake (having a controller with no rumble) they need to develop their own type of rumble

I thought when you said "DS" I thought Nintendo DS....

Some minor tweaks, maybe to the dPad, but I really like the current design. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

DragonKnight1282d ago (Edited 1282d ago )

In before "move the analog stick to the fictitious natural position thereby moving the dpad to an inferior position, and possibly the buttons, and creating an asymmetrical analog stick design that serves no beneficial purpose."
