    Good thing those restrictions are illegal in both the US and the whole of europe then. The case law is as close to rock solid as it gets.

    Steam don't seem to care much.

    Now you know two. I've got both, but the one I choose to use on my PC is the PS3 gamepad even though it's more of a hassle as it is not natively supported in Windows (unlike the Xbox 360 gamepad).

    actually looks good to me.... what i dont like about the xbox controller is that the left stick is way to the north and the controller is so damn heavy. AA or AAA Batteries just sux.

    I prefer the PS3 one too (and I have both) The 360 pad is just too big and heavy - it's up there with the dreamcast controller for size..just not as comfortable for me (even with my giant english hands). It's not the only reason my 360 is never played anymore (the noisy fan is a big part of that!) but its one of them.

    I quite like the evolutionary rather than revolutionary design here - if it ain't broke don't fix it! A touchpad and share button are pretty darn useless though - would be better if that touchpad was actually a VMU like screen (but more modern) - take the concept from the WiiU/Dreamcast and evolve it into something mass market that works.

    This is interesting - any links to reference that? I would be curious how steam and other DD methods get around it (keeping in mind how many games are sold "in store" with just a steam code and out-of-date game disc in the box), and also how current PS3 games get around it when they come with a multiplayer unlock code in the box that prevents second hand users playing online without paying £10.

    Does anyone know if they have fixed the trigger design yet?

    I like the controller and all, but I do note enjoy handling it like a piece of expensive china every time I want to put it down.

    It doesn't look too bad. I hope they make it a more seamless design. The edges on the DS3 where the two parts of the controller join always irritates my hands.

    Re: News - Prototype PlayStation 4 controller pictured

    I personally prefer the xbox 360 controller over the PS3 controller as the thumbsticks are in a terrible position and the triggers are hopeless. Even before the xbox was released and I had the PS/PS2 I never liked the thumbstick layout so always stuck to the D-pad where possible.

    P.S. I much preferred the original chunky xbox controller over the later released s controller, I hated how they had re positioned the white/black buttons and just generally didn't feel as comfortable. Me and my ex girlfriends step dad both dislike them so much, that we went out our way to find replacement large controllers when the originals started to fail.
