And make a flawless PC gaming driver to go with it? I'm so sick of the fat 360 pad, and when Dark Souls 2 rolls around I definitely want a Playstation controller to play it. I hated using the 360 pad to play it, the R triggers are switched around compared to the PS3 version. Very annoying. I know there are drivers, but these don't always work for everyone, and they obviously aren't official. I always enjoyed the playstation controller.

Well both the Dualshock 3 and Dualshock 4 can be easily made to function as a 360 controller. It isn't perfect, but they both work fine.

It would be nice if games had native support for them though

Always preferred the 360 controller myself. Stick layout is better and the triggers feel way better, the Playstation controller gets so uncomfortable; It's just not a good ergonomic shape at all.

I prefer the DS line of controllers over the 360, I can use both, but my preference for comfort and layout is the DS line.

PC games are their competition, they don't want to help support it.

And some like the DualShock's stick layout at triggers better, think it's comfortable, and think it has a great ergonomic shape.

Not at all. Do you seriously think that every peripheral with drivers pays Microsoft royalties? SMH.
