I tried a PS4 controller at PAX and really liked it. The shoulder buttons feel way better.

Yup, I had the same reaction. The new triggers, while still a little squishy, are a huge improvement over L2/R2 on the PS3.

I am going to miss the analog face buttons. That was one of the coolest things about the PS3 controllers.

What games actually used them? I don't think I've played a single game this entire generation that's done so.

Gran turismo used it, also MGS IV

Digital face buttons have less latency, and analog were rarely used.

really wish they started using buttons like on the Razer Onza controller.
so smooth, fast and simple.

well lets hope Razer does the PS4 controller aswell this time then :D

I never realized that about the old face buttons on the PS3 controller!

There was never really anything wrong with the symmetrical stick placement, apart from them being too close together in previous generations. The main problem was the ergonomics, and they've fixed and improved everything they needed to whilst adding new features that I hope are used by developers. That seems to be the case so far.

Why would I want anything but symmetrically designed controller to fit my symmetrically designed hands? Loving the design, and it seems that based on feedback it's an exceptional improvement and a great controller. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
