Uh, well that's something that I know the consumers have told us they're looking to have in the PS3 controller, it's something that we're obviously looking at, now that we've reached an agreement with Immersion. We're also looking at a variety of other things that we can incorporate with the controller, and we'll come out with announcements when we think we have the right mix of features for the PS3 controller. I mean, as you know, that's also an evolving peripheral, if you will, in that we started out with the original PS1 controller with no analogue, and it's come all the way to this point, so obviously, as we go forward, it's not the final model for a PS3 controller, so we'll see what comes down the road.
there's also a patent people are looking at. it involves buttons with 3 axis of analog control. so imagine a trigger button that can also detect left/right movement.

OMG that would suck. I know I don't push directly back when using the triggers so that would totally fuck me.

this thread is far too long, so i'm just going to say rumble is useless anyway. wait, no, i really get into a game of madden, my hands vibrating a little really helps me know what its like being sacked by a 250 lb linebacker.

Um... in and out is one axis, left and right is another... what else are they going to have, sliding it up and down?

I can. It could be where the left stick is.

The d-pad isn't the best, but most games use the joystick anyways imo. The d-pad is mostly for actions like switching inventory/calling plays or such.

Though for fighting games I can see how that might annoy some people.

The 360 controller is good except for the d-pad. Sure it's for gun selections and other unimportant tasks but I find it a strugle when trying to select hotkeys in Oblivion or changing weapons in Gears. If they redid it and added a built in battery pack I would think of it as the best. At least it's better than the "Elk Killer" version from the original xbox.


I like the PS3's joysticks because they are symetrical and familar, d-pad is great. It does need rumble and some resistance on the triggers to make it perfect (thus regaining it's semi-stolen controller crown back from the 360).
