    Also in addition to how it's uncomfortable, one of mine drifts, and the other sticks.
    So I play games that don't require it, or let me change movement to the D-pad.
    Thing is I can't really know which of these is true for a game until I try it.
    Problem with that being that's a huge waste of time. So instead, I'll ask!

    MGS: Peace Walker
    Crisis Core

    Do either of those have the option to use the D-pad instead of the analog nub?

    You can use the dpad on FFVIICC
    EDIT: or you can just use JoySens

    There's a simple reason why you hate the analog nub.
    It's shit.

    Pretty much... though I know one person who loves it (and hates the x360 analogs, which are awesome)
    I prefer concave analog sticks, and the PSP analog stick is too small and it just doesn't allow enough movement.

    Sometimes my finger hurts when I play a game that needs constant analog motion.

    The one that drifts dirfts one way and won't go fully the other way so that'd still be bad. [​IMG]

    My finger only gets sore while playing Peace Walker. You have to tilt the nub just a liiiiiiiitle bit to sneak around, and since you're sneaking around pretty much the entire game, my thumb gets pretty tired.

    ^ This, plus at the end you have to constantly press the triangle button. My triangle button was almost jammed, after 50 tries.

    Te nub that drifts doesn't go all the way in the opposite direction of the one i drifts in, so the analog's still useless with that one, and with the one that sticks it's really annoying to use and hurts too quickly.
