I have used the controller...
It bears more than a passing resemblance to the dual analogue controller on the PS1... In fact...?! I'm not going to finish what I'm saying about the controller. You can't defend it. It should have been better - no excuses.
There's no reason for launch titles to suck. They don't have to as Zelda proved. You don't have to completely harness the PS3s full potential to make a good game. Just make a really good looking fun (what would be a PS2) game for the PS3 launch? Plus you have to spend an extra £50 on top of the console to be able to play it. Unlike Wii sports. Thats £460 - or $830 we pay in the UK.
Also if you are going to use subjectivity as an argument we may as well all log off. I think the majority of people would agree that there are far better games on the 360 and wii than the ps3.
Despite how I might come off sometimes I'm not actually a person who hates the idea of a PS3 because I love 360 or wii. I'm pretty indifferent when it comes to that.
I ask myself why would I want a ps3... And whats so good about it... Compared to the 360 and wii, I don't see any real benefit owning a ps3. I could buy a wii and a 360 for the same price as a ps3.
