*GASP* Steve was wrong!!!
« on: May 17, 2005, 09:07:34 am »
In one of his podcast he said sony would use the same controller as they always have done.

he was wrong.

On a more serious note: do you think that crontroller will fit well in your hands?

That pretty much IS the same controller, it just looks a bit different.

It's got all the same buttons.

Heh, I actually should have said that they would use the same layout. I knew they were going to redo the controller, however, even I am surprised at just how much they "redid" the controller. I was expecting a small change, such as a new color and slightly new grips, but nothing quite so radical. Looks like a weapon...

I guess they didn't want it to be associated with the DualShocks... maybe one of the PS3 launch titles is "Boomerang Frenzy" or something like that.

Now that I think about it, that would be really awesome, chucking controllers around like a madman.

It looks a little cumbersome..

Not too keen on the playstation3 logo :-\

PS2 looked alot sleeker.
It could be frankie. It could be very fresh and clean. It could be a balloon.

Did they redo the controller because of that duel-shock lawsuit?

The pad looks nice I think, but what it's like to actually use it....
I don't know it looks as if it easily slipps out of your hands...esp if they are a bit sweaty....

The actual layout looks almost the same as the PS2, but smaller analog sticks.

Who else can't wait to see the MadCatz controllers for PS3? (Ugh...)

maybe they will see their mistake and do what microsoft did with the xbox 'S' controller, those long grips are going to get in the way.

HA, so true!

I think it looks really garish, personally.

What's the point of changing the shape when the buttons are still exactly the same?

It is a prototype.

i dont see why the handles have to be so long, like big floppy elf ears from world of warcraft, i can only hope that I can get one in black and I can find an alternate version thats like a ps2 controller.

I keep forgetting it's a prototype and that there's still a long way to go in terms of production.  Hope they change it.
