I wish they would do more HD remakes too. I have a backwards compatible PS3 but I yearn for better graphics of the classics I love and enjoy

I remember that i had preordered the pS2 for £300 at GAME.
I was strangely more excited about its DVD playing functions than its launch line-up of games.

Don't get me wrong, the PS2's launch line up was great, there just wasn't anything that i personally cared for.

I eventually brought an Xbox but that also had a crap control pad at launch. It wasn't until the controller S that i finally felt confortable using a control pad.

I think my problem with the Playstation pads it the placement of the analogue sticks...

Originally, the PS1 had no analogue sticks, only a D-Pad.
Sony tacked them onto the bottom of the pad when the new technology caught on with the N64. When it cames time to release the PS2 though, instead of taking the opportunity to correct the prblem and offset the sticks, they chose to re-release the same old pad again. Which was fine for most, but not for me. Now with the PS3, i'm stuck with a pad i still struggle to feel comfortable with. Only this time, i find that my fingers slip off the triggers. Its why i'm going to buy the xbox 360 designed pad for my PS3 as soon as i can. I love my PS3, i just don't care much for the controller.

the placement is fine. To me it feels way better with aligned sticks then off-set.

Yeah, I don't see how reaching down for the left stick is so awkward when you have to do the same for the right stick. Also my fingers never slip off the triggers.... :\

That controller design was perfect for most games, Racing, fighting, flight, action adventure, 360 controller, for me, is only good for FPS!!!!

Oh STFU Droid Control. you are nothing but a troll. Seriously you really think people believe you when you say you can't find a game you care for amongst the Ps2's lineup? If so then you aren't a gamer.
