Every time my controller dies I have to pull out the tiny PS3 USB cable from a tangled mess of cables, plug it into the controller, get down on all fours, search around for the USB slot tucked away on the PS3 and plug it in. On top of all that, I usually can't play while I am charging the controller as the USB cable which comes with the PS3 is way too short and does not reach my couch. In spite, I usually fire up my Xbox 360 while I periodically gaze at my PS3 controller on the floor charging up. It is a sad sight indeed."
