IGN says the PS3 controller is poopsky

IGN UK had a play test with near-final PS3 hardware last Friday and despite commending certain aspects of the system hardware, the game site wasn't impressed with the Sixaxis controller. From the hands-on: "Personally, we can't help but feel that the SIXAXIS (as it's now known) has been sadly neglected when viewed alongside the rest of the PS3. Compared to Microsoft's uber-comfortable Xbox 360 pad, the SIXAXIS feels cheap, plasticky, uncomfortable and disconcertingly light - almost as if it's going to fly out of your hands during those more extreme gaming moments."

Also, if you are going to editorialize, then find a better word than "poopsky."

It's better that that horrid orginal Xbox controller, and I'm not a fan of the 360 controller. Dual Shock 2 is the best for me, but it all comes down to opinion.

Oh, and you used the term "Most people" I presume you have a cite that has some sort of statistical research to back up this claim. If not then you are likely just another fan boy that likes to go off on tangents rather than back up your posts with facts.

I have never had a problem with the PS2's analog, in fact I think it's much better than my 360's. Again, a matter of preference. But I believe that if M$ came out with a pile of dog crap, POGII would say that it's better than anything in the world because M$ can do no wrong.

Most people that used the Xbox1 pad(the small one) and the Duel Shock game pad know's the Duel is one step above SNES's controller and the quality of the anolog is piss poor and the layout of the buttons is SH*TTY, Sony did say that they worked on the poor anolog but no ones talked about it so maybe they didn't.

its in the Bio of the controller and the buttons are more sensative

They didn't think to highly of the ps2 dual shock, so if you like the current ps2 controller then it follows that you might as well like the sixaxis.
