Neowin stated in a past review that people prefer the Xbox 360 controller to the PS3's Dualshock. While this statement is controversial in regards to the fact it will always be up for debate and comes down to personal preference.
I getting that the design is way better than the dualshock3
Keep telling yourself that lol.
make u sleep better at night.
lol XxZxX & Graphics Whore
Well I like the DS3....
You'd need a PS3 to play it with.
has always been the pinnacle of console controllers. Hell, its even the most recognized and widley used concept when it comes to video game controllers.
Microsoft even used it on one of their ads.
1: That's not a PS3 controller. It's a pc pad. 2: Being widely recognized does not make it any good, sadly.

I wonder if that d-pad has its limits like 360 one
I doubt it's as bad as the 360 one... It's at least got a decent shape to it. Not as good as the standard dual-shock, but probably serviceable.
I like how the 360 controller feels, it's pretty comfortable but at the same time I have no problem with the PS3 controller, certainly not enough to spend the money on this thing. Besides I llike the fact that the PS3 controller uses bluetooth and I can turn it on with the PS button not to mention the sixaxis controls are nice in some games. This is certainly a nice alternative for anyone who feels like getting one.
i dont think just the layout of the analog sticks and the d-pad are just the only good things about the controller. I also like the shape of it, and how it fits in your hand.
My hands are not as small as they once where, id rather my Ps3 controller sit in the palms of my hands I say bring on the boomerang concept i couldnt care if it looks ugly i want comfort over looks (with women its the other way round)
I guess ill pick it up I ave no problem with the DS3 it's amazing but it's always better to have all choices
Looks like crap. I put Real Triggers on my DS3's and now they're perfect.
No thanks. I dont see the big deal. Maybe if my parents were cousins and my thumbs were offset, it would be good. But my hands are symetrical.
"but but but the 360 controller is much more better for FPS cuz... it's different... it's more better" riiiiight... it's hilarious how full of sh!t xb!tches can be XD bubble++
It's more ergonomic. Our hands are designed in such a way that it's easier to have the left stick up. I prefer the DS3, but you can't deny the comfort of the 360's controller. If only it had more to it underneath...we'd be able to touch all four shoulder buttons at once. I wouldn't get this though...that d-pad is atrocious!
I like the contours of the 360's controller, which make it fit in the hands nicely. I think the trigger buttons are a little better as well (although the "triggers" on the DS3 are not as bad as some make it out). Honestly though, I don't really notice any improvement in the offset layout of the analogue sticks. In fact, it might be a little bit the opposite--I feel that I am a little more precise with the symmetrical placement of the DS3's analogue sticks. The DS3's sticks are also more accurate and have less "dead space". And we all know the D-Pad on the DS3 is miles better than the one on the 360's controller. Anyway, the point is that both controllers have their pluses and minuses, but when it comes down to it both work perfectly fine.
Reminds me of the gamecube controller, except the lame "c-stick" was the bottom right stick instead of a real one.
cool... I wish the thumbsticks were concave...pretty interesting tho.. to bad no sixaxis in it
at least they got the d-pad right....get it....huh,no....cuz the d-pad for the 360 sucks.eh.
I always loved the DualShock. It's the best controller ever. That's reason it hasn't changed much since the PS1. You have to grab/hold the 360 controller. The PS3 controller rests/sits on your fingers. That's why my hands tend to get sweaty while using the 360 and original XboX's controllers. Plus that whole uneven analog thing is just feels wrong for FPSs. Symmetry FTW!
Love the design I'll be getting this pad can't stand that Dualshock controller. LOL at the rabid responses. Flippin big ass crybabies on this site.
You really do tend to repeat yourself alot huh?
Bubbles taste good. I made me some bubble shaped cookies a couple days ago. I eat one every time I take a bubble from someone. It's just too bad I can only take 1 bub from you Why dis, I wouldn't mind having another cookie or 2.
You got a PS3??? Quick someone make a blog and post it as headline breaking news!
for the life of me i dont understand why anyone would choose the xbox controller over the dualshock, its been around for about 15 years now with minimal changes and it works best so why choose anything else?
Let me guess, you still watch a black and white TV and drive a Ford Escort, don't you? Times change, and those who fail to evolve (Sony) get left behind. The Xbox 360 controller is a FPS players dream.
Def picking this up, you can't beat a 360 controller and shooters..IMO
They used Sony's design for the L2/R2 which IMO is the worst feature of the DS3. Too bad as I think it's a super idea. To the PS3 fans, isn't this a good thing if it helps bring over new fans to Sony's shiny black beast? If someone hates the DS3, shouldn't there be a reliable alternative so they could enjoy the system and its games? Who knows, today's 360 owner could be tomorrow's PS3 buddy on your friend's list. People, to reiterate, this is a GOOD thing and hopefully the start of a new era. Now if I could just convince enough gamers that ALL games should have mappable control schemes, I'd be set. My biggest pet peeve in regards to gaming itself is the insistence of developers making us play their game with THEIR control scheme. BAH!
@ SRU9600 it may be useful for shooting games but try playing fighting games and sports game with that crap dpad, then we'll see who's talking.
I don't play fighting games, and the 360's controller is awesome for sports games, as well. The Dualshock appears to be made for children with small hands (or the Japanese, perhaps?) and has a very outdated feel. I truly can't stand using it since getting a 360.
That the dualshocks joysticks were proven to be much more precise than the xbox 360 controllers.
But still uncomfortable as hell.
(...), (Proceeds to next post)...
I have both systems and like different things about both controllers: Like the triggers and feel of the 360 controller. Like the analog sticks and lightness of the ps3 controller. Hate the 360 controller d-pad. Hate the ps3 controller trigger buttones.
