PS3 Boomerwang-er... rang controller
« on: June 24, 2008, 08:19:04 PM »

Does anyone remember Sony's first brilliant idea for a controller for the PS3? If so, you can help here -> http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/PS3_Boomerang_Controller

finally... its been forever since somebody posted in the sony category. thank you harvest!!!!
anyway, i think that they should have kept that design, and at least have changed things up- sony has kept the same damn design for the playstation controller forever.

Yeah, the rang isn't as big as people think, and I hate the dual shock controllers. The thumb sticks are a strain to use because you have to push your thumbs down unnaturally. It's annoying when I'm playing on my PS2. My favorite controller is the X360 wireless controller. It's perfection.

The Wii controller is primarily used for gimmicks, and isn't nearly as good of a all-purpose controller like the 360 one is.  I can use the 360 one for almost anything.  It works great with emulators and a bunch of PC games, although of course you wouldn't want it for an RTS or FPS on the PC as a mouse and keyboard are far superior to a controller with each.

Lol, it looks like a piece of those shape-shifting machines from Terminator

looks much better than their old - I mean - REALLY old control design

PS1 control!



PS3 control!

Wii remote and 360 controller both have a great handle, but the 360 controller is more versatile in that it requires less work to hit all of the buttons

XD hilarious

If you count the dualshock 1 controller as the PS1 controller, then that's one less thing that changed.
