He could have changed the triggers.
Although I don't really have the problem with them that quiet a few other people seem to have.

Edit:@Rhythem: He basically uses the case of the Dualshock 3.

So he takes one of the best pads and puts it in the case of one of the worst pads, just to fix the Dpad....? O_o

Exactly - how this improves on the 360 pad is beyond me. To quantify, I have big hands, and hate the dual-shock because it's all cramped together. Mind you, I used to like the original behemoth controller that the Xbox came with.

Ditto, was a bit disappointed by the initial size of the 360 controller but I've got used to it.

The Sixaxis does feel a little on the flimsy side.

Thankfully someone finally made a decent PS3 pad as well :)

Hehe, very nice. Wouldn't mind having one of each of the reversed controllers, tbh.

I'd have retro fit it to an original PS1 dual shock shell and sticks, much higher quality back then. If those are regular SIXAXIS/DS3 jobs sticks, they'll be unacceptably floppy around the centre point in no time, but yes, at least they are in the right place now.

Sony should make an "L" edition of the pad like MS made the "S" version of the original XBox controller, there are a lot of people who find it too small, especially merkins.

I wonder how hard it would be for me to swap my old SIXAXIS gizzards into a DS1??

I would like all the pads retro fitted into appropriate Quickshot joysticks.

I bought a couple of those Competition Pro USB joysticks with the aim of making a 360 arcade stick, I just haven't had the courage to open them up yet.

I was thinking of doing this as I've got an old Microswitched Comp Pro kicking around at home. It wouldn't be too much work to sort the thing out, methinks...
