Is there such a thing as a "Sixaxis" shaped 360 controller?

    I think we can all agree that the Dualshock/Sixaxis Playstation controllers are arguably the best controllers ever designed ...

    is there any 3rd party manufacturer that makes (or can make) a 360 controller in the sixaxis shell?

    id buy 2

    if it doesnt exist then use my idea wisely ...

    I think we don't all agree. The ps2 controller is made for small hands. It's the same design they've used since the ps1. And since then the majority user group has changed from the children (whom it would seem the controller was designed for) to the 20-30 year olds... yet the controller has always stayed the same. The way the "arms" on the controller sharply bend down doesn't conform to my hands too well and they seem too close together.

    Sorry... the 360 controller does it for me.

    Now, I have seen where someone fitted the innerds of the ps3 controller into a 360 controller shell. I seen the article either on Xbox Scene or Maxconsole a while back.

    you can actually use ps2 controller, which people have stated are the same shape as ps3's msix axis, on the xbox 360 if you buy an adapter, theres one called fps or something like that which allows you to use mouse and keyboard as well but im pretty sure there will be cheaper options around

    Ya, I forgot about that. It'll let you use a ps2 controller. Also a mouse and keyboard. But if I recall right, because it's not a licensed MS product, you need to use a wired 360 controller to get it working right.

    It's called the XFPS Pro. Here's a link for the first model. I believe the Pro is white. You can Google the pro if you want. It's not cheap, though.

    edited by ddp? Is this why the 360 is not as hot in Japan, and the Playstation is God there? Interesting thought.
