From the article: "Adjusting the buttons, the shape, and the analog sticks by as little as a millimeter could yield drastic differences, Sumii says. It took a year to tune the design of the DualShock 4 to the point where he was satisfied."

I love how Sony have been dedicated to the DS4.

To be honest I love the analog sticks. If the left stick was up there wouldn't that be a problem for the touch pad? I am a gamer and I play more than just shooters I like my dpad right were it is also being an avid fighting game fan. Using the Xbox or 360 controller for this without a fight stick was unbearable for me.

For me, the symmetrical placement of the Analog sticks is the best part of the controller. I used to have an original Xbox and the controller felt great, but when I tried the Playstation controller, it felt much more comfortable to play. Unfortunately though, the PS controllers have never been too comfortable as a whole. This is something to be completely fixed with the new PS4 controller.

So having symmetrical or asymmetrical sticks, just comes down to preference. I don't think a controller is better or worse just by the analog sticks, which some people might like more than others.
