    ew, No thanks.

    Who would want that?! The 360 is a brilliant controller and the ps3 one certainly cant compare to it

    Dont see this working well. The only controller combination I would want to see is maybe the 360 taking over for the Wiis classic controller.

    I hate the 360
    and mainly because of its supid controller.

    so although i'd have no use for it it sounds like a decent product

    I'd rather see it the other way around... I don't like the 360 at all (I'm more of a Wii/PS3 fan), but the controller of the 360 is one of the best - actually the only better controllers are those for GameCube and Wii.

    As others have said, why would anyone want to do that? No offense to the PlayStation 3 intended, but their controller is notoriously terrible. Whereas in the reverse scenario, the 360 controller is hailed generally as one of the best. I certainly feel it is. Great button placement, a good weight, a shape that conforms to your hands.

    The 360 pad is great apart from its terrible dpad. Give me a better dpad please. [​IMG]

    I've never had a problem with the PSX/PS2 pads and they are comfy.

    They do have a version that lets you use the 360 controller on a PS3.

    Well imho the PS3/PS2/PS1 controllers suck D:, the analog stick placements make FPS games a living nightmare and the D-pad on the 360/Xbox are better than the Playstation ones purely because they are not individual buttons but can rotate nicely [​IMG]. But this is all my opinion.
