Who started the controller rumor?

#1GuitaristMattPosted 8/25/2013 12:43:21 PM
When did the 360 controller become "better for shooters"? I'd like to know how that rumor became so wide spread that people just say yes to it. Maybe somebody scientifically proved it, but there is nothing that I have been able to find behind it. What do you guys think? Why does the controller and in turn the X1 controller seem better to you?

It is called a consensus.

I prefer the R1 and L1 on the PS controller for semi-auto weapons but full-auto weapons are easier to manage with the Xbox triggers. Overall I prefer the dualshock but I can't stand the L2/R2 buttons on DS3.

It always has been, by nearly everybody that plays on both consoles, which is why FPS typically do better on the 360 then the ps3. I Understand that it can be hard to understand something so basic to such a Fanboy.

I really disliked the R2/L2 buttons on the Sixaxis/DS3.

There's also the fact that FPS sell the best in the United States and that is a market dominated by the Xbox.

For accuracy? Sure.
Enjoyment and comfort? Absolutely not
