Controller Issues...

I've seen people post on here, and tell me at work that they don't like the PS3/360 controller and that's a big reason why they don't like the games or console itself.

My question is, has any third party come out with controllers that are for one console, but are designed like the other console's controller?

Yep. I used to watch a YouTube by the name of WingsOfRedemption and when he first switched to the XBox, he absolutely hated the controller. So he'd always mention in his videos about how he's saving up for a custom one that was essentially a PS3 controller for the XBox. I think it was somewhere in the $200 range.

Oh yes, there's a number of companies that make "look-a-like" controllers for each console. I'm just a nut about first party controllers, I have never, and will never own a 3rd party controller.

I think the 360 and PS3 controllers are some of the best I have ever used...

I find that I get used to controllers remarkably quickly. 360 is excellent, in my opinion, even if it is relatively bulky.

I also loved the PS2 controller, though, and, while the PS3 feels a little flimsy in comparison to 360, I'd imagine that I would be enjoying it within hours.

That's my primary reason I like the 360 controller better. I prefer my controller to have a bit of weight to them, although I'm sure if I was one of those gamers prone to throwing their controller at the wall, I'd like a more light weight controller to prevent damage

Opinion on the PS3/360 thing: I like the PS3 controller more. Why? I thought the original Xbox controller was a joke and I stuck with my PS2, so I adapted well when buying a PS3. Plus, I like the analog placement on the PS3 controllers. Really though, the games/system is what makes or breaks a system...I don't care about the controller that much.

There used to be controllers for around $50 on Gamestop that were noted as a very good "cross-over" controllers. The company made PS3 and Xbox styled controllers for both systems. I don't remember much about them, but they had triggers in the back like the 360 controllers (not the wide triggers like the PS3).

I think the 360 controller is superior for my size hands, but the D pad always needs work.
So I fixed it.

This. Also I shaved the handles down a bit so it fits my hands better.

I play lots of shooters and I have yet to find a controller that is capable of matching the accuracy of the Xbox 360 controller. It just seems that third party controllers miss out on the importance of being accurate in games and just make controllers where the analog sticks aren't sensitive enough or are too sensitive.

On the PS3/360 controller battle, I don't like the PS1, 2, and 3's controller because the thumbsticks are too close and I often find myself colliding thumbs.

Anyone who says PC is superior is entitled to their own opinion

For me, console is better for gaming than PC is. PC Fanboys can say what they want, but I will not be frequently playing videogames on PC for the foreseeable future.

This isn't about the PC in this sense, just purely whether the controllers exist and where I might find one... Actually, I'll post a pic later but if you search "PS360 controller" on Google you'll see exactly what I mean.

A friend of mine bought this, just to embarrass console players on 360...jackass.

Nobody thinks the Wii has a better controller than the 360 AND PS3?

Yeah, I don't either. I couldn't do that one with a straight face. I like the 360 controller better because I have big hands and the PS3 controller is a little small. They're both about the same, though.

Also, is that a touchscreen controller?
