Describe your ultimate Sony controller

So, we all know that sony reacted to the backlash against the boomarang shaped controller and went back to something like the DS2. How would you improve on the sixaxis for the next console, or for 3rd party companies?

Haha. It'd stop me too!
I wish the little recesses underneath the Dpad and shape buttons weren't so deep. I feel like it just needs a different shape overall to be more comfy

Yeah, i read that part of it is a battery issue. It'd take a lot of juice to do motion sensing and rumble, lots of recharging.

Sony are releasing a rumble sixaxis, they settled the dispute with immersion, so can put it into production! It will probably have a better battery aswell.

yeah, but if you played while it charged, you'd be wired up again, kinda defeating the purpose, imo.

Having rumble in a wireless controller doesn't shorten the battery life too much. Yeah, it's a bit shorter, but not noticeably so. I have two Logitech wireless controllers with rumble for the PS2, and the battery life on those with rumble enabled lasted quite a long time. I would typically change batteries once a month or more.

If I could revamp the Sixaxis controller, here's what I'd do:

Add rumble, obviously. This will probably hit in time for the holiday season.

I would make the battery pack changeable by the user. Sony claims they will replace any worn out batteries free of charge, so maybe that's a non-issue - as long as you have a backup.

I would put a little separation between the L1/L2 and R1/R2 triggers. I inadvertently hit the wrong trigger button during games, especially shooters or Fight Night Round 3, and it messes me up.

I would not add a headset port to further drain the battery life. I picked up a Logitech bluetooth headset off Ebay for $12, and it works killer without a cord.

Other than those minor things, I think Sony nailed it. I'm glad they stuck with the traditional design as the basis for the new controller. That way I was able to just pick it up and hit the ground running.

i was reading an article in playstation magazine yesterday about what the new sixaxis should look like, & they had a picture w/ the D pad & the left analog stick switched then put vibration & the PS button would be green when the battery was good & then orange when the battery was getting low & then red when its just about to die. the only thing i dont like about that is Dpad & analog stic switched. i dont like it like that, i think its less comfortable
