As the title says, plus if so, is there a release date yet?
It's a tried and tested design, which when polled to the public months ago, they said they liked the layout for the PS2 and PS3 over the Xbox 360.runam0k said:It's looking good but I wish they (Sony) had changed the controller! The analogue sticks just aren't in the right position for an FPS.
Jeez man, just accept it. The one thing sony has undeniably done right in the console wars is design a great controller. Ever since the analog pads were added to the PS1 pad the controller has been considered nigh perfect in design. Just look at the clones doing the rounds everywhere.jayd said:The 360 pad is way better than the PS2 pad. Most people I know think the same. The people polled probably have never used the 360 pad.
How do you feel about the removal of rumble from the ps3 pad?durera said:I'm glad Sony are sticking with the pad, the boomerang design looked aweful. Likewise I'm glad Microsoft have moved in that direction too, this pad is infinitely more confortable than the previous xbox ones, and we can all thank Sony for that. If only the digital stick was a bit more practical to use (like, say, the PS2 pads )
Disclaimer: I'm not a sony fanboy, nor a MS one. I'm a gamer, plain and straight. I'll buy all the consoles and judge them on their merits.
Rumble was overrated, the only time a game ever made decent use of rumble was that one cutscene in Metal Gear Solid -- you know the onerik1471 said:How do you feel about the removal of rumble from the ps3 pad?
Quess you've not played Moto Gp? If there was no rumble how would you know when the back end was going to go from under youdurera said:Rumble was overrated, the only time a game ever made decent use of rumble was that one cutscene in Metal Gear Solid -- you know the one .
Ah, yes. I forgot that use in Table Tennis (my bro is borrowing TT from me at the moment) -- another good use of rumble there, but good use of rumble is a rarity imo.csd7025 said:Quess you've not played Moto Gp?

Also if Table tennis had no rumble you woukd not know when you were over hitting the ball.
I don't understand the motion sensor thing either, when I play games I usually don't have the room to wave my arms all over the place for one thing. As for rumble adding tension, in the two examples you gave, true. But the majority of games add rumble when you get hit/take damage whatever and I don't even notice it, I can see I got hit, and making my joypad vibrate slightly adds nothing to the experience. When I think of rumble that's what comes to mind.csd7025 said:I feel rumble adds to tension and makes games more realistic. Still dont understand Sony's idea that motion sensor is more important.
Maybe some games but IMO online FPS's like COD2 it feels realistic and adds to the game, playing death match for 30mins with a machine gun puts you through itdurera said:the majority of games add rumble when you get hit/take damage whatever and I don't even notice it, I can see I got hit, and making my joypad vibrate slightly adds nothing to the experience.
agreed, just have to wait and seeit's interesting that Sony could have offered both, but chose motion sensitivity instead. Perhaps instead of bashing a button to get up I will need to shake the controller wildly
I always thought the 360 pad to be more influenced by the Gamecube pad in terms of layout. I mean the sticks are in similar positions, then the two shoulder buttons above the trigger are reminiscent of the Gamecube Z button IMO(although that was quite poorly responsive & too small).durera said:The 360's controller is clearly influenced by the design of the PS2 controller, they've realised that the black and white buttons were just not accessible which is why we now have the familiar 4 button layout with 4 shoulder buttons (albeit retaining the triggers, which is a nice touch, reminds me of my SEGA Saturn's 3D Control Pad for NiGHTS). Even the Controller-S was a step towards the shape of the Sony pad.
