Its just horrible. With the analogs being placed the way they are shooting and aiming with R1 and L1 strains your fingers..I really thing the left analog should be above and the right analong below its just more confortable. The PS3 controller is great for fighters and side scrollers but honestly playing an FPS on the 360 is like 10x better. I own both so thats where Im coming from.

Yeah, the PS3 controller is pretty terrible for FPS games. Third person shooters are well.

I guess I don't agree with your opinion. AT ALL. I for one hate the stick placement on the 360 controller (despite the fact that the GameCube controller is built nearly the same way with the stick placement) and much prefer the PS3 controller stick placement

My view is the opposite of yours. I remember playing halo for a bit and the controls threw me off. Using the triggers to shoot isn't comfortable IMO and I couldn't stand it. simply pressing L1 to aim and R1 to shoot is much easier for me. I hate when PS3 shooters default to L2 and R2. I change that as soon as possible.

As for the analog sticks they are both fine by me but honestly mouse and keyboard is best. I wish I could afford a good PC as then I would just play shooters on that instead.

Both feel normal to me. I'm more used to keyboard and mouse though.

I hate the way it is on the Xbox 360 controller for all games. To me, it's not comfortable to have my thumb raised up when it's at that angle for long periods. But to each his own.

I swap back and forth between 360 and PS3 all the time, I can't say I notice anything to be honest, this is actually the first time I thought about it.
