Are they afraid they're going to look stupid by admitting their design is dated?

The sticks are down there for convenience. They were put there in the first place because the dpad was still dominant. It makes no sense to keep up this ridiculous charade. Put the god damn left stick where the god damn dpad is before I lose my god damn mind.

PS. When people were mad because they came up with that stupid boomerang, it wasn't because they wanted the Dualshock back, it was because they wanted Sony to make something that wasn't so stupid looking.

I think it's because their design has been reliably awesome, and there was little need to change it. I think that the 360 controller is also pretty cool, but I like the changes that have been made for the DS4.

There is NO specific evidence that proves an asymmetrical layout is greater than a symmetrical one. People just assumed it is because the 360 controller is popular.

The wii u sticks are the weird ones, the right stick being below the buttons is an anomaly.

The DS4 is the perfect controller, the xbox's stick position leaves thumbs aching after extended play.
