PS3 Controller with Concave Analog Sticks?

26 replies 2606 views Edited Feb 10, 2008
Probably seems like a silly thing, but the concave analog sticks on the Six Axis controller bother my thumbs. I have small hands, so the convex sticks make using them uncomfortable. The 360 controller, with its concave sticks, is much more comfortable.

Are there any 3rd party PS3 controllers that have concave analog sticks like the 360's controller?

There was a give-a-way in some Great Britain magazine where you could get such.  I live in Podunk, Norf Kakolakie so of course I have seen no such offer in my neck of the woods, but ebay may help you.  There is a guy here in the forums with pics and everything.  All I want is rumble.  And no, I have no desire to import thru playasia.  I'll wait.

Thank you. I was afraid something like that would be difficult, if not impossible to find.

Best,

Thanks. The top one is too big for my hands, so it's out.

The second one does not support the motion sensing.

I saw these stick covers that look like they could mimic concavity...

I just don't know how to buy them.

Availiable in all kinds of ugly colors, save for 3.
