Dude ,you have put PS3 instead of PS2.
Well what can I tell about the 360...hmmm...The controller buttons are diffrent. But I'm sure you'll get easily with it. Also there is a keyboard for msn chats in the shop for sale.

PS3 controller is actually the same as all PlayStations one. Just a diffrent colour. And also the 360 is the same as the old Xbox one.

Xbox controller vs 360.

My 360 controller is pretty nice. A keyboard and mouse still owns everything though, atleast FPS wise.

As a PS2 and PS3 owner. I will tell you that you will get used to the Xbox360 controller fast. I mean I don't own one. But I play Halo with friends all the time.

It won't take long to get it down. Once you remember the difference between A, B, Y, and X. You'll be fine.

Both systems have great controllers.

The only thing wrong with the PS3 controller is the L2& R2 buttons. Moved up and out the feel a little weird on the hands.

Yea the *2 buttons are really weird. They require near to no force to press them which can be annoying because you can't rest your fingers on them.

Anyway, gamepads are all pretty much the same. Xbox just has other names to their buttons and IMO a weird place for the left stick.

Don't you have a game store near you where you can try both controllers?

I don't own either consoles but have tried the 360, and it feels pretty comfortable. It's just a matter of personal preference, I like you are used to the Playstation brand controllers, but you'll get use to the 360's over time. As Chaos mentioned, you should try asking the gaming shop in your area to let you try out the Xbox 360 controller.

I find the 360 controller really confortable, with the convex sticks and all that. It fits like a glove.
I didn't really like the playstation's mushroom-like concave sticks when i tried it however, my finger slips off much easier, i actually had to press it while trying to move it. Other than that it was good.

The controlers for XBox look like there was an team with to much time that worked on the design. It's looks like it is used for some eyecandy or something.

Playstation's design looks better. It's more simple, and it also looks like it can take more damage.

Anyway I still want a Sega Mega Drive controler tongue.gif

All recent controllers are very similar, apart from the Wii controller. I prefer the 360 controller though, it fits like a glove. PS controllers don't, which is too bad IMO. But I guess Sony kept the original design because all the PS fans have been used to that for years.

Really? It's probably just because I'm used to the PS controller but the Xbox one felt so weird, the thing's just fregin huge.

Anyway it's really all personal opinion, what I would like though is that they would all have the same face buttons. It's a pain in the ass to play X360 games at friends when I'm used to X, square, ...

Exactly, the 360 controller is very comfortable. I can't say that about the PS controller, especially about the thumbsticks - they're way better on the 360. You can usually get the feel of them in the shop if there's a demo console.

Yea the original XBox controller DID suck. Luckily they soon got rid of that and included the 'S' controller instead, which was great.

Atleast for the XBox, they included the new controller in the standard package. Sony isn't putting the new rumble controller in the package though.

As for the triangle, square... buttons, I prefer the ABXY XBox (and Nintendo too I think) has(have). Letters just seem more functional to me than those friggin' symbols. Though of course, most will prefer that they'll used to I guess.

360 control does look cool/futuristic and all but controlling is better on the PS brand controllers. Thats my opinion.

Dunno, i always hated those roundy mushroom shaped thumbsticks. It's like they were designed to make your finger slide off.
