    Definitely looks like a normal TV remote. I guess it can sit beside the other normal living room remotes without looking out of place.

    It's not much different to the old ps2 remote, I guess it's perfectly okay for what it needs to do?

    Who gives a fig anyway?

    Ugly as sin it may be but when the PS3 actually launches, people may just realise that its the games that matter.

    Everyone said the DC looked like a Breville pie magic but in gaming terms at least, it kicked PS2's offerings into touch

    Just heard a rumour that apparently the remote control is overheating. Sony are not sure if its caused by lack of ventilation, an overcomplicated processing chip that has been in development for years, users pressing the buttons too hard causing friction to occur on the PCB or if its due to 'Sony’s exploding batteries'&#169; that are currently included free with the remote.
    Ill let you know more when I get details.

    I just love how Sony do a press release with something so damn ugly. You would have thought nowadays with the amount of stuff out on the market that they could have got a nice clever design from somewhere...something stylish. My Parents Sony Bravia TV remote looks far nicer than this
