Which controller do you prefer, Playstation or Xbox?

I know this is a PC board and thats why I want to hear from neutral users which controller they think is better?

Personally, I owned a 360 with a PC for a long time and I think Xbox's controller is the best controller ever made... I felt that playstations controller was so small and the analog sticks + the triggers were annoying. My problem is I plan on switching to the PS4 this year and I just wish they had Xbones controller...

Its going to be interesting to use the PS4's plug and play controller with the PC...

The 360 controller is indeed great. It feels good and has a nice heft to it, in addition to having excellent triggers and a functional stick layout... but that D-pad, it's crap =P

(I don't have one of the new revisions so I can't say if it's any better)

The PS controller's D-pad is leaps and bounds better than the 360's and I don't mind the controller's shape or stick placement.

Don't make me choose!

... actually come to think of it, I don't have to since I have one of each plugged into my gaming PC =)

If someone could take all the good points of the 360 controller, meld it with the good points of the PS controller, then throw a bit of the Japanese Saturn controller's goodness in there... well now, we might then have the greatest controller ever made!

I prefer the dual shock, mainly because the dpad on the 360 controller is terribad. The X1 one looks like it will fix this, so I'm tempted.

I'm cool with either one but I'm a bit more used to the PS3 controller. It takes a little getting used to going back to R1 and L1 to aim and shoot as opposed to 360 triggers but that's about it. I also like the PS3 d-pad, it's so much better.
