This controller handles amazingly well, for about the first hour. If you are a recent convert from the Xbox 360 to the PS3, the controller will give a little bit of familiarity, since it behaves like a 360 controller, with the LEDs and all. After about 80 minutes of using the controller, I began to feel a pain in my thumb. Looking down i noticed it was a bit red, so I switched to the thumbstick from the pointy D-pad. The texture of the controller itself is engineered in such a way that it prevents the thumbs from becoming sweaty, and it is overall an amazing controller.
8/10 – Good controller, excellent response, very durable.
