How comforftable is the tablet ?

As light (perhaps even lighter?) as a 360 controller, and more comfortable too. The sticks look like they're in an odd place at first, but I struggle to go back to the 360 now. Honestly, one of my all-time favourite controllers, both ergonomically and functionally.

Its light, yet sturdy and comfortable

Very light and ergonomic.

My only problem is in games like Mario Chase where you hold a analog stick in one direction for some time your finger can start to slip off the concave stick. Split seconds matter in that game, there's no time for readjustment.

I was holding in game stop yesterday, its nice and light, but it also feels like your hands are way to far apart when holding it.

If you don't like the smell of pigfarts, stay out of the pigpen.

Don't be afraid of the giant size, it is extremely comfortable =) Once you get the hang of it, you won't mind the size at all.


That's what I said to my wife. Zing!


yeah I said the same thing to her.

You mean convex stick?

That little "ring" on the top seems to be enough to keep my finger on it.

Overall though, yeah, light and ergonomic. No real complaints here except maybe lack of analog triggers.

Yup, that's the one I was looking for. You'd think an engineer would get that right the first time.

Maybe it's just how I've held it, but I have other friends that have the same problem when we play Nintendo Land. I sometimes have to use my right hand to hold the stick in the direction I want while I re-adjust my left hand. PS3 controller is a bit better, but I still have a similar problem with that. Gotta stop eating those damn potato chips.

Back when I was "hardcore" I used to put my Controller in the fridge before a session.

Gotta get them gripz for da pwnz!!

It's surprisingly comfortable, especially after a couple hours of playing it. It pretty much feels like another regular controller, despite the size.

As others have said, it is different when first trying it out because...it is different from usual controller designs. But, once you acquaint yourself with it, it is rather comfortable to hold and use.
