    The fact that they say Spring should lead us to believe it will be March / April before we see it here!

    Im so pissed off at the design, the triggers are the worst thing, the fingers slip off too easy. And the analogs should of switched places with the dpad and the rubber should be concaved like the 360.

    They also need to improve the dead zones of the analogs.

    they should have made the boomerang an option, alongside the original … they should have made the boomerang an option, alongside the original style controller - it may have looked funny but it would have been an improvementno controller is perfect and i think sony were being lazy - they managed to tack on a motion sensor but little else changed



    The didn't include the boomerang controller because it got laughed off the stage every time they tried to showcase it :whistling:

    Its a great design, fits in the hand nicely

    Thats actually one of the worse peices of marketing ever. Bringing out the controller with vibration after the console has been launched. It was delayed long enough, glad I got a 360 instead now

    Might have rumble back, but they're still using the same old ****** … Might have rumble back, but they're still using the same old ****** design.



    whats wrong with the old design?

    Looks like a wireless PS2 controller to me....

    (Why they ever made a controller without vibration feedback is strange anyway!!)

    there tech is old Microsoft Xbox 360's had this since day one Xbox 360 ftw!

    If you are wondering why rumble wasnt included i the PS3 controllers, read this.

    The old one of the PS2 is good enough IMO!

    yh i really liked the ps2 controller and im happy with this design. people will moan watever the design.

    To those saying they are happy with the design, have you ever used the xbox 360 controller?

    The analogs and triggers are miles better on the X360.

    Personally I love the playstation controllers, IMO far better than xbox controllers.
