    Plenty of hand cramp I'd guess. It's hard to tell how big it is and there's no mention of size in the specs.

    Dosnt seem as well deigned as the Xbox one IMHO.

    But then again that can be said for the PS3 controller in general.

    If it aint broke, don't fix it.

    This thing however, seems *very* oddly designed, I'd imagine it'd block the L/R1 buttons and put the controller off-ballance somewhat. I would have bound it to the bottom of the pad myself.

    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    No socket at the bottom of the PS controllers. So only one place to put them.

    Nothing wrong with the PS3 controller. Fits better in the hand than the crap 360 controller.

    PS fanboy much?

    how can you honestly say its crap? There is nothing at all with it and i prefer it to the PS controller, not to say the PS one is bad, its a pretty definitive controller.

    This does look like an aweful adaptor though, there must have been a better solution than this. You couldnt possibly type without completely readjusting your grip.

    I always loved the PS controller it was probably the best controller for the life of the PS1 and 2. However it hasn’t changed and unfortunately the 360 controller, for me any way, is much more comfortable and a great evolution on the original xbox and PS.

    I’ve gone back to my PS2 a few times the last month and just cant get back into using the PS controller.
