    Ok after seeing this post by NateTheGreat (http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/3042-wii-ball-concept.html) and his attached thumbnail of a mock-up of the new PS3 controller I have wondered what they have decided on? Cause didnt they scrap the "boomerang" design because to many people complained about it? And if they did what have they gone with now? Or is it still the same old crappy PS2 controller just a couple of neat touches? Answers to the following questions are accepted :)

    I think they've gone along with the re-make of the PS2 controller.. unless I've been missing out on something..

    Yeh I heard about the motion sensing. It is going to be as "hardcore" as the Wii's motion sensing though? I cant see a person "flinging" their PS3 controller around... it just doesnt look as cool as Wii.

    Bad move on Sony's part. They stuck with the same crappy shape, removed the vibration and stuck in some half-arsed motion sensor which can only do tilting.

    But despite all those problems, it's still a lot better than that Boomerang controller.

    To be honest I liked the boomerang, I thought it was pretty slick. But what the hell is tilting?

    So you can twist your arms awkwardly to play the 1, yes count it, 1, game that supports the tilt sensor. Boomerang looked ugly anyway.

    Also, I hate to be a fanboy, but the PlayStation controllers both suck, and blow. I don't like them anywhere near as much as the GameCube controllers, which are just perfect.

    lean forward and lean back, and turn it left and right. basicly, thats all u can do with a ps3 controller as far a motion sensing comes.

    not sure if it means anything or not but on one of the pictures for the controller it had a 5pin cord hole on the top maybe to charge the controller if it is indeed rechargable, maybe itll work much liek the wirless mice that can be recharged by plugging it into the usb slot

    That's exactly what it's used for. But.. what does that have to do with anything ?

    what are you talking about, the ps2 controller was probably the most easy to use controller of the 3 previouse generation consoles and it fit nicely. The new tilt thing is just meh, and who cares about the vibration, i use a wave bird for my gamecube and there is no vibration with that so it's not such a greate loss.

    a lot of people care about vibration. i dont all that much, but its still cool to have. the PS2 and GC controllers were basically the same design except for the left thumbstick was up, and the buttons were different sizes.

    If a controller doesnt have vibration, I would not buy it! Vibration is hell good and adds alot of effect when you are playing!

    but all your controllers are wired because those have rumble. i got wireless because i was tired of wires getting tangled

    Theres definately more than one game supporting it.
    Ive DEFINATELY seen a race game and a game with a plane ( im not good with sony games XD)
    But anyway, yah, theres more than one game suppoerting tilt sensetivity,
    and to be honest, it looks rather....TOO sensetive, the guy o nthe vid would tilt it slightly and the car bloody swerved, and your constantly moving the controller to keep the car in the right direction, just too awkward.

    Though I don't think vibration is esential, I'm really happy the wiimote/nunchuk will have it, even if the battery life is shortened by it (I'm guessing there's an option to turn off vibration anyway) because it's gona feel like you're shooting the gun or slicing with a sword. The PS3 controller will also have a "Dashboard/Menu" button, similar I'm guessing, to the Xbox 360 controller. I wonder if when you hit the "Home" button on the wiimote if it will bring up the WiiChannels? That'd be very nice.:D
