  12. Sony? Unno make sense? says:

    Please keep the old design of the dualshock controller. Don’t ruin the controller by making it look like a banana… It would be uncomfortable to hold and would make people buy an xbox instead. And why the heck does it look like a steering whell on a car?? Please fix it sony. And make it cheap and able to play ps2 and ps3 games. Dont be greedy like microsoft

  13. me says:

    the console looks like a frisbee and the controller like a boomerang

  14. sony is so much better then dont make you pay out you butt play online..and gameplay is them same..nothen diffrent

  15. Cyrus R says:

    maybe it’s fake. look the controller doesn’t even have analogs..

  16. Timtam says:

    People saying they’re greedy, hope you realize they tried to have the first models of PS3 play PS, PS2, and PS3. It’s just that it burned out the core – it had too many disc readers, so they took out the most logical and left it with PS and PS3. And for those saying Microsoft’s better, I’d agree IF the controllers weren’t so heavy and confusing on xbox. I much prefer to stay with Playstation.

    Although I agree with keeping the dualshock controllers used for PS3… They should be kept compatible with PS4 at the least for those who want to keep to that design of controllers.

    After the lame PS3… Id rather pick up the Wii U.
