A better design:

This is what the DualShock 2 should look like, Logitech and Hori make the best PS2 pads.

I would respect them more for changing it, I mean its a 10+ year old design and the sholder buttons are shocking to use. Ive always hated the X pads "seperated" design, lord knows why it was never changed with the PS2.

I would also respect them if they actually put some thought into the name of there next console, I bet it took hours of slaving in the board rooms to come up with "PlayStation 3" oooo PS3 :roll:

However, they wont do either and therefore my respect level for Sony will remain where it is right now, around my neither regions.

I like the PS2's shoulder buttons. They are excellent for entering codes and locking on and stuff like that. I personally like them more than pressure triggers like the Xbox's and DC's.

Don't get me started about the GC's floppy ass "triggers." :x
