I wonder what the assymetrical layout would have looked like. It might have been a good choice as a final design

I think Sony made a mistake on this one... They seem so happy about stealing Microsoft's customers, but won't even bother to make an alternate controller for them? They have to know how popular that design is, and they could make a ton of money off of it as well.

Look how many people who bought pro controller for their Wii's because they didn't want to use the stupid motion controls... What I see here is a ton of wasted good will, and profit.


This controller?

IMO, it was a smart decision to NOT change the stick placement.

I think they are just fine how they are, and find it a lot more comfortable.

Sony made the right choice.

I'm not saying it's the same... I'm saying that people will spend money if given an alternate option. All the people switching over from the 360 aren't going to fall in love with the DS4. I bet a whole lot of them would be willing to pay extra if Sony had given them an Xbox style controller...

Dude I'm referencing your other topics you post in, you even invent imaginary conceptual diablo 3 uses for kinect and claim it is a better implementation, it's downright hilarious.


Please find that quote. I would love to see it. The only thing I said was that a game LIKE diablo 3 could use it as a way to drag stuff around. I also said this about the Wii U gamepad and I still think it is a great tool for inventory management. In fact, I said this about the Wii U LONG before I even knew the game was coming to consoles. OH NO, I AM TALKING ABOUT MAGICAL FEATURES AND IS WII U FANBOY!

So basically, you were making a statement out of your ass and then you lie about something I said in ANOTHER topic, because you failed to make any sense in this topic?


Oh, MY BAD. A game LIKE Diablo 3.

Biiiigggg difference....smh.

Here is more of your propoganda:

You are basically a MS marketing machine, pretty much.


So you can't handle my arguments in another topic and that makes it OK that you completely made a fool out of yourself regarding this issue? Good job. And nice find, I argue that the XB1 has more features and it does... I guess this was just you trying to win an argument you lost in another topic. Thats pretty pathetic. I guess this really had nothing to do with controllers and you just want to restart something completely different.


Where was I made a fool of? You still have yet to respond to my point on this topic at all. And, Everything I've said about your history and such is actually pretty on point. To make ANY point in favor of the X1, you trash the PS4 in the process. I didn't exactly lose that argument, you are just too full of your own s*** to accept it.

*declares himself on point*

*ignores the fact that he just lied in that topic about how big Crysis is and completely failed to tell us how Bluray was important*

Symmetrical sticks > Asymmetrical sticks

The 360 and Wii U Pro just feel awkward to use to me.

but the wii u pro is symmetrical :|

Too bad they kept it the same. At least the sticks are concave(and some nuts were mad about that being changed) and a lil bit further apart now.

They could AT LEAST make an alternate version, same goes for MS for the people that like that. Or better yet, allow any usb controller and allow controller config.

Oh well, $40 or whatever GS will take for trade in- free dollars toward getting a 3rd party controller.
