Can we please get back to the topic please? Thanks much.

About the previous controller for the PS3, the Boomerang controller, I thought it would be horrible to play with that thing grasped by my hands. And if I wanted to throw my controller around, I rather buy Wii.

By the way, I just want to ask everyone who viewed and responded to the thread: did anyone have a 'fateful' meeting with a fanboy like I did before (which now pisses me off every time I remember that torturous 10 minutes)? I love to hear about these 'unique' events.

it seems like you somehow misunderstood my post.

I said it's ironic you said that because of the way Sony hasbeen pitching this system, which by all means the opposite of what you were saying.

lol.

don't misunderstand me, i'm not a nintendo fan nor a sony fan, the last time i touch a nintendo was a NES.
The last sony consoel i have is the PSP.

I go where it's most fun. but really ,that post of your really made me crack up. lmao. you must see the humour in your own statment?

I dunno, would be interesting to be able to hold one for a moment and give it a try. Really, the aging PS1 controller design has been showing its age for quite some time. Right now I'd rate the PS3 controller "acceptable." Everyone else is moving on, though.

If not the ergonomics, I'd like to see them at least tweak the button and analogue layout. That's assuming, of course, that next generation we don't see everyone moving towards controllers similar to the Wii.

Really? You know... you don't have to hide the fact that you're a Nintendo Wii owner (Wii friend code under your sig). There is no shame in that, of course now your honesty credential (with me) has been lowered for telling a fib. Literally the last thing in your house that you touched might have been a Nintendo NES but surely you own a Wii.

Also I tend to drop in on the Nintendo Wii thread to ask for recommendation on the ds lite. You're a regular there if I'm not mistaken and you also recommended me the ds lite. I appreciate the honesty then.

Sadly no, you're the only one that found it humorous. Maybe there's something wrong with the rest of us, huh? But if I indeed "somehow misunderstood" then I would like to apologize.

I think he was referring to that the last Nintendo console, before the Wii, he's owned was an NES. Anyway, don't mind me. Continue on with your little cat fight

Holy crap, have I been wrong this entire time. Please forgive my ignorance everyone and my sincerest apology to Onizuka-GTO. I've made a total arse out of myself with my quick judgmental ways. Sorry.

lol, maybe I was mistaken. I have been up for 26 hours now studying for finals, so I'm a little slow. I loved the sarcasm doh, if that really was sarcasm.

Anyways, some positive PS3 news, um there will be new FF13 trailers in the upcoming Jump Fest this week

Time to pass out the cake and punch. None for Kayos, and Onizuka untill they kiss and make up.

So, when you get your nintendo Wii kayos, (when the price drops of course) feel free to add my friend code, lets exchange some mii's! And i'll do vice versa (when the price drops of course) and lets exchange some....erm.....crabs?

nice try Onizuka, but still not cake and punch for you. Because your avatar and sig are freaking me out, since they keep moving every 9seconds...

God I need sleep, I hate college finals with a passion.

Not to totally derail the thread, is anyone having problem with their PS3? Ours stopped working yesterday, we would turn it on and get a greyish blueish screen. Then we turned it on earlier today, and it was working fine. Weird

Actually, I was happy to find out when I first held my new controller that the design was tweaked a little. The shape is absolutely the same. But the R2 and L2 triggers are actually trigger-like. They are not shaped like triggers, the button shape is the same. But they are no longer buttons. You can pull them back more, like a trigger. They release with a nice snap to them. It's very comfortable. As a note that is purely preference on my part, I wish that the color Sony chose for their new system was an orangey-red. I really liked the blue. Gomen red lovers!

@Lebron I've had no problems with mine yet. That is really weird. I'm assuming that it wasn't just the blue screen on the tv when nothing is playing to it? It was a different color than the bright tv blue? Do let us know if it happens again. That's what warrenties are for, ne? Oh, and do you have a PSN UN?

by the way, how is sony warranty service? Nintendo has outstanding turn arounds, within a week RMA, and sometimes they don't even have you send it and comfirm it's delivery before sending out a replacement. (so for a period you have two/three Wii with you, before you send back the broken one)

Been hearing really bad stories of ps3 customer service, dunno how it's like in the UK & Europe, but i hope i don't have to find out.

About the controller of PS3, only I don't like about the controller is actually the design. The only reason why I would've loved the former controller for the PS3 is because it doesn't look like its former PSs' controllers.

What the PS3 consumers are given is bascially an upgraded version (maybe not since Sony took out the rumbler) of the PS2 controller: wireless controls and the SIXAXIS. I still would've liked the Boomerang controller without the SIXAXIS, since the only PS3 game that uses the SIXAXIS is Lair, where you have to control your dragon's flight path with the motions of the controller.

BTW, there is a good news for the future PS3 gamers: the manufaturing issues with Sony for the PS3 have been solved. If you want to see the article explaining that, I'll post the article link with no hesitance.

Not really. Warhawk, Blazing Angels and Motorstorm, just to name a few games, will all be taking advantage of the SIXAXIS control as well. That is to say, it will play a major role in how you play the game if you wish to take that route (I think they all offer a more traditional control scheme as well... not too sure about Warhawk). I still think it remains to be seen whether it can be anything more than a gimmick for most PS3 games, though I found the SIXAXIS control for NHL 2K7 quite intriguing.

Keep in mind that the PS3 is very expandable, though.
From what I understand, the PS3 is perfectly capable of doing everything the Wii does, and if Sony wanted to, I'm sure they could create a controller for Wii-like games. Not sure if that's copyright infringement, but it's probably not since the Sixaxis is already quite similar to the Wiimote.

Regardless though, you can't say the motion detection is any more a gimmick than rumble. If anything, rumble motors make the controller heavy. I tend to turn the rumble off in most games, since I could care less about immersion. No one complained that the Wiimote is missing rumble, anyways.

@Dark `: Request received and taken care of: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=21577
And thanks for reminding me of all the games that will use the SIXAXIS. I just remembered that Sony announced their SIXAXIS controller at E3 2006 with Warhawk.

@Papaya: No one complained about the Wiimote's lack of rumbler is because it lacks the lacking of the rumbler.

In other words, Wiimote comes with the rumbler built in. I held it once and it was very lighter then I thought it was. Maybe that's why it flies off of people's hand and into someone's face, their plasma TV, window, or all of the above.

Except that this Wii-like controller wouldn't be the default, and thus would be barely used.

It only seems similar to the laymen. The technology is quite different.

Yes, the trigger buttons. That is a nice little touch, but it's only that, a nice little touch. The face buttons are still the same old layout, the analogue sticks are in the same flawed position, and unless there's a difference not immeadiately apparent in the ergonomics, then while not uncomfortably to hold, the controller isn't exceptionally comfortable either. Adequate, as I said before. Also, the lack of rumble is just a huge step backwards. I remember thinking rumble packs were a silly, dumb idea back in the day, but now that I've been spoiled by them for years, I really don't relish the idea of moving into a new generation without that feature.

I will give Sony credit for the pressure sensitive buttons, though. That was a fantastic idea that I'm dissapointed Microsoft hasn't (at least to my knowledge) picked up on.

The following are quoted for emphasis:

This is a basic principle of the console industry. This is why no one gives Sega credit for analogue controllers making a comeback. If you make a new controller for an already existing console, it is an optional peripheral. As such, developers will not likely spend much time working on options to support it, since the majority of people will not have said peripheral.

Quote:

Indeed. This is the second or third time I've heard someone suggest that the Wii controller lacks a rumble feature, when it in fact does have one.
