Playstation 4 needs a new controller redesign.

Admit it the Playstation 3 controller is terrible. The DS3 is poor when it comes to ergonomics.

1) Poor handles / controller grip. THe handles are too thin and short, therefore you are unable to grasp it with your palms (fully), instead its more like wrapping half with your palms and half with your fingers around it, which causes poor wrist stability. In other words, bad for the wrist.

2) Analog stick layout - Again should be where the DPAD is for natural thumb joint position.

360 controller has 1) down perfectly and at least 2) half right. Wii U pro controller seems to be good but lacks any responsive triggers.

Time for better ergonomics Sony. 2D games are no longer the dominent type of games, so no reason to keep a 2D controller design. (DPAD in natural/primary position) is no longer the primary control. As much as it may be a representative symbol for playstation ergonomically it's terrible and I don't understand why Sony Fanboys fail to admit it.

Best to break it if it isn't fixed, rite?

"Don't fix what ain't broken" seems to be working for the PlayStation brand.

Nope. Dualshock is an excellent and well known design. No need to change it.

There's nothing wrong with the PlayStation controller.

The PS controller has consistently been my favorite design, and the most comfortable, in my opinion.

I find the 360 controller to be quite awkward truthfully, ive always loved the DS better
