PC & Tech Authority: "It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters. But what if you want to play the hotly anticipated Killzone 3?"
ahh what a stupid title got me thinking who the F would right something like this lol you had me there def recommended for those who want to play it and are use to using the 360 controller to buy one of these.
The title is very deceptive and the information in the article very old. Please, if you want to play Killzone 3, then play it the way that it is meant to be played on the PS3!
yeah i messed up on my comment, i meant for those who like using the 360 controller or are used to using one to buy one of these (adapters or controller). My buddy has a few that he uses on my ps3 when we play COD and i have one for his 360. Saves the hassle of trying to get use to the controller feeling.
*Excuse for not buying a PS3* "But I only like the 360 controller" Well, now you can use that 360 controller you love so much while playing on the PS3.
"It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters" how is this true? just buy the triggers and put it on the ps3. than the ps3 is generally better than xbox360. cuz the D-pad on the 360 controller sucks. u push down and the system reads right. u push left and the system reads down. epic fail. u cant even buy a extra d-pad to replace it either. let alone that stupid battery pack sticking out underneath.
"Want to play Killzone 3 on Xbox 360 controller"? No, I prefer the dualshock or Move controllers, thank you. "It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters." No. It's not. Why would I want to click Read full story >> after reading that BS?
@TheLastGuardian Then why click on the article in the first place???
"It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters." No. It's not. The author must crazy. crraAAAAAAAZZZy, I say.
LOL fact that 360 is better then ps3 when it comes to first person shooters? the milked halo franchise versus a ps3 new IP resistance series that is growing more and more and killzone 2 and 3 are like a revamp to the old franchise yea the storys not that great but...do u play halo for the story? lol i think killzone+resistance beat halo
How is Halo milked? Why do people say that....
Cuz they are butthurt over they cant play it...
Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, Halo Wars, Halo Reach, Halo DLC, Halo Novels, Halo Comics, Halo Apparel. Edit: Forgot the anime series ;)
I can see your nickname is Gray-Fox... MGS Fan? Cool I am too :D Now lets see how that one is milked! MG 1, MG2, MGS 1, MGS 2, MGS 3, MGS 4, MGS: Portable Ops, Portable Ops +, Peave Walker, Snake's Revenge, Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color), Metal Gear Acid, Metal Gear Acid 2, MGA Mobile, MGS Mobile, MG Online, MG Arcade, MGS Touch, The Document of MGS2, MGS: Digital Graphic Novel, MGS2: Digital Graphic Novel, MGS4 Database and future MG Rising And I did'nt even name the comics and radio dramas lol... Now tell me does the milking make MGS worse? No? Still one of the most awesome game series right? And dont call me a xbot fanboy.. I played 12 of those MGS titles I listed...
i think people call it milked because the number of releases this Gen. for that console. Meaning we can always expect a new Halo game coming up every other year with gears coming out those other. @Neutral yeah but those were released over the life time of different consoles/handhelds PS3 only has one MGS game, and MGS Data Base doesn't even count, same with novels (goes for Halo to) and can you really list ports? I mean MG on SNES or MXR (what ever) is essentially the exact same game on Mobile phones. might as well just say every game is milked then. The reason why people say it milked, and i will say it again, is the number of releases on the device it released this gen and how quickly it released. Yeah on PSP MGS is a bit milked with what like 3-4 MGS games? But all of which are about 2 years apart??? Milking doesn't make the game worse at all like you said. Its the constant release that makes the game feel, well a bit worn out. Like i saied only one MGS game released on PS3, the next game isn't even a real MGS.
Okay I see your point... Remember the PS2 though? MGS2, MGS 2 subsistence, MGS 3, Then MGS 3 subsistence :I then "the documents of MGS 2" (BTW I bough both MGS2, MGS 3 AND their re-releases XD) Still waiting on a MGS 4 subsistence +_+ with VR missions :P OH and Halo 1 and 2 was not on the Xbox 360 so then they dont count as well I guess? So Halo 3, ODST, Wars and Reach is really a milking? Wars was a strategy game and ODST was an experimental DLC kinda game, which only costed 20 bucks at release, with full Halo 3 MP inclusive some mappacks (I dont own Halo 3, so I loved the ODST pack)... 2 main games is a milking? Uncharted got 3 maingames this gen on PS3... NO and none of them are milked! COD is another story though...
ODST was not $20 on release. I clearly remember it being sold for $60. I got mine for free with my 360 so I can't complain.
@dragon Weird I got it for 35 dollar in Denmark at launch (which usually cost 10-15 dollars more than US prices...)
I think people are failing to realize also that Resistance got books as well if you're going to bring novelizations into the mix. Also, if you are going to argue that halo has gotten all these entries this generation (3 of which were proper first person shooters), you should also consider that KZ has gotten two and Uncharted and Resistance have both gotten three. That's a pretty even number in my opinion. I'm not on either side of the fence (I personally don't give a shit as long as the games are good and being a fanboy is whack as hell) but these arguments some people are making are just ridiculous.
Personally, I think KZ3 would be better with the Boomerang compared to the Pro Elite Controller!
""It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters." FACT? FACT? FACT? where did the writer get this so called, "fact"? oh yeah...straight from his asshole!
While I agree that it is pretty bold for the author of this article to make that statement, you make yourself look pretty immature about your disagreement when you're throwing up all those caps and screaming about him getting his opinion from his asshole.
Well, the Xbox 360 controller might be better for FPS (debatable) but the PS3 has a better catalogue of FPS games. All Xbox 360 has is Halo (Gears isn't an FPS).
FPS games have a better feel on xbox than on ps3, mostly because of the controller. Halo isn't its only FPS exclusive.
*Opinion: Everybody has one*
can you name any others. Halo is MS only exclusive FPS.
BUHAHAHA, no it doesn't Only exclusive shooter you guys have thats good is Resistance and its awesome. Killzone isn't anythings special. And multiplate tend to play better on Xbox 360.
"multiplate tend to play better on Xbox 360" Castlevania LoS, Vanquish, FFXIII etc. definitely plays better on the 360./s Stop assuming that "all" multiplats plays better on the 360
damn I would like a multiplate... I would give anythings
That Controller looks stupid as hell. http://www.overplay.net/r.p...
Wow, while I agree with the fps being better on the 360. I bought the adapter but it did not feel right on the ps3. I find the best solution is the nyko raven controller alternate style. It looks exactly like an xbox controller and it has the tilt crap thats on a ps3 controller. Still though ps3 fanboys are going to whine for ages over this article. The best console is all opinion based lets all just enjoy our consoles. I recomend owning all 3 best way to play all the AAA titles.
Why would I want to play with a terrible controller? I'll stick with the Dualshock 3.
it's preference ffs.
dualshock 3 is a terrible controller ill be buying this when it comes out
This was a very misleading title. Anyways, I looked at the xbox controller look alike and I have to say....it looks like shit, the triggers don't look like they have been fixed.
I have the adapter and do like using it for the shooters. That being said, sports games I stick with the ps3 controller. But for shooters, no thanks.
Yea the joysticks for the DS just have an extremely loose feeling to me. I can't aim half as well as I can with an xbox controller. Notice people that I am merely offering how the controller feels to me here, not that I think the controller is crap. Cut the hate before it starts.
NO!! I'll save that money and buy myself Resistance 3. Playing Killzone 3 on dualshock 3 is perfect. PS. I've played the Open Beta...so I know it's perfect(IMO).
I have the opposite problem. My hands are too small for the 360 controller. After a while my hands starts to cramp up. Especially when playing super meat boy. If I could use my ps3 controller on my 360 I'd do it in a heartbeat.
Based on your name I'd believe it to be true.
This may be off topic but I wonder what basketball players use. Some of those bigger guys have some gigantic hands.
Yea I have big hands and the xbox controller is more comfortable to me. My hands start to cramp when I use the dualshock.
"It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters." No, fail article.
I still don't understand how most of my friends prefer the 360 controller. The analog sticks feel less responsive for FPS games imo. On ps3, a slight tilt to the analog sticks is picked up as movement in the game. But I do like the feel of the material used for 360 controllers.
From people I've talked to the thing that I hear the most is analog placement.
360 controllers feel heck of cheap to me, I hate their material. Especially the shoulder buttons.
No thanks, I'll take the DualShock 3 or Move ANYDAY of the week, month, year, century, or eon.
The dualshock 3 is a Legend ! Nuff said !
LOLOLOL. He says the X360 controller is better than the Dualshock!
"It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters." lol "fact". It merely comes down to preference. Just because more people prefer the 360 controller over the DS3, it doesn't make it fact.
Wow, four disagrees... really? God some people are stupid. Popularity does not equate to quality.
Yet another disagree. I feel sorry for the people that can't understand such a basic concept. It must suck going through life believing that popularity equates to quality. I guess that means McDonald's has the best burgers. Modern Warfare 2 is the best game ever. Wii is the best system. It's a fact that the 360 controller is the most popular choice for shooters. It's not a fact that it's the best.
lol ive been using fps games seen dual shock 2 ffs :) Its far better to me xbox is good don't get me wrong but come on Timesplitters just one of the exsamples ill throw at you.
"It's a generally accepted fact that the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3 when it comes to first-person shooters" No, it is an opinion that is far from universal. On the subject of which controller people prefer for shooters, that's also somewhat divided. Personally, both are uncomfortable for me to use for any significant amount of time, probably due to odd hands. Can't really blame either of them in my case.
Man Fudge that, everyone all praising the Erogonomics of the Xbox Controller. If you want The most comfortable and best Way to play a FPS. MOVE beotches, more ergonomic than a 360 pad, and the Trigger on move is way better than the triggers on both pads. Believe the Hype Move is the best way to play K3, if your consider yourself a hardcore gamer, Take the challenge it will not come easy at first but when it does click and find your settings, its a whole different way to play.
yup. 'Move' over controllers! q;
The Xbox 360 controller is much better, I've played a lot of games with both and the PS3 just seems too light and like it's gonna break easy, the triggers don't feel right (especially L2 and R2) and the analogue sticks don't compare to the 360 controller. The 360 controller fits in the hand rather nicely! So PS3 owners if you can, you should get one of these.
maybe you've only used the sixaxis pad, because the dual shock 3s are much sturdier, i've used both, and the weight isn't really an issue, whatever it weighs you get used to it, but the early sixaxis pads were flimsy as hell. the ds3s are much tougher, trust me, i've thrown my fair share of joypads around in my time. and i don't know why people are having problems with the triggers, i get, really, sweaty hands and i've never had any problems with the triggers.
The 360 controller would be alot more comfortable if it wasn't for the stupid battery pack sticking out the back where your fingers go. Man that thing is annoying after a few minutes of play. I also think the analogue sticks would be better if they were convex like the DS3. Just my opinion though.
I love my PS3 contoller. I like it even better than the 360 one that i used to have. Many people will disagree with me but i refuse to change my opinion
what i don't get is if the higher position is better for the analog sticks, and it's possible, why only put one of them higher? apart from the awful dpad, the fact the xbox pad isn't symmetrical is the main thing about it that bugs me.
It's personal preference. Neither the 360 pad or the DS3 is perfect in my opinion. I prefer the analogue sticks, R1/L1, Dpad and weight of DS3 I prefer the Triggers and overall ergonomics on the 360 pad Neither controller has perfect feel on the face buttons, but I marginally prefer the DS3's. So overall I prefer the DS3. I wonder what sort of market there would be for custom made bespoke controllers!!
Maybe for people with errors in their genes.
Nothing is a "Fact".I love my 360 controller,but I love my Dualshock 3 more.
I like DS3 more as I find the 360 controller a bit too large, and I grew up on the last three gens with DualShock. This a good idea for multiplatform owners though. Lets see a 360 controller in the shape of a Dualshock! I'd definitely get that for Gears.
DS3 controller is better. The XB360 with strange locations for thumb controllers is awkward. Move control for fps will be better than both.
It is also generally accepted fact that 360 controller is only good for two genres while PS3 is good for all of them.
Both of these controllers and adapters fuck up with the 3.5 firmware I believe, and I personally have the Power A controller, huge fucking deadzone in the analogue sticks.
