    Ever tried googling "left handed controller"?

    I'm a left hander and i've gotten used to it.

    I'm a natural lefty also, but since none of the controllers I ever played going back to Atari were designed for lefthanded people, I adapted.

    i dunno...
    atari had a right-handed joystick and firebutton on the left. -- nintendo has opposite configuration.
    so i would think if each controller were opposite at conception, i wouldn't have thought of this being a problem for right handed people.
    are yo ua suckie gamer?

    The only problem I have is playing Guitar Hero or Rockband, and the guitar is set up to be used by mostly right handers. Otherwise, I have no problems being left handed and using the joysticks and controllers.

    There really are no discriminations when it comes to game controllers (with the exception of GH, but it's not too difficult to play lefty, you just have to use the whammy bar differently). The joystick/d-pad has almost always been controlled by the left hand, and other actions by the right. That's just the way it is. If you've not gotten used to it by now, maybe you just weren't meant to play video games.

    Oh yes I know you can flip it in the settings, but I meant that the guitar is still meant to be played right-handed. When you play lefty, the whammy bar is on top instead of bottom, the Wiimote is on bottom instead of top, and the integrated joystick works backwards.
