    It will be able interesting to see if the colour scheme runs through to the console itself, or at least, the split in colour.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: Sony unveils the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller

    While I'm sure it feels/functions differently overall, it does have a very 'xbox' vibe about it.... The current xbox s even comes in the white/black 2 tone scheme.

    It does look quite nice but ultimately how something feels is far more important when it comes to a controller imo.

    I like the design. I hope the trigger buttons are more robust than the plasticky DS4. Was not impressed with the DS4's build quality at all.

    Re: Sony unveils the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller

    Its not a major departure from the current design, looks a bit more solid though

    It's an improvement but they still insist on putting the left thumb stick in such an unnatural position. Most other pads put it where they have the D-pad as that's closer to where your thumb naturally rests.

    Re: Sony unveils the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller

    Looks to me like Alienware decided to make a Playstation controller.

    Kinda funky, but the left analogue stick should have been swapped with the d-pad position a long time ago imo. It looks like we're losing a "proper" d-pad too, although hard to tell as it may be present under the plastic.

    I kind of get why they have not done that switch though, as if they did, they would basically have an Xbox controller with a strange touch area.
