So who's genius idea was it to bring it back?? I doubt many people are even going to buy it. It's a 70 dollar controller that tons of people hated, and it isn't even wireless.

Wow.

Definitely going to buy it. I actually really liked it. I have pretty big hands, so I found it pretty comfortable.

That's why they are bringing it back as an optional controller. Many people also liked it and no one is forced to use it. No one suffers from having more choices.

As @INKU48 said, its optional.

Alot of people disliked it but alot of people did like it. Normally the more vocal group is the one one that dislikes something and are the ones listened to.

People should have complained about the small dualshock 2 and 3 controller. The proportion and shape of the controller feels all wrong in the hands. It’s funny how japanese complained about the xbox “Duke” because of its size and MS listened and changed it and they got their way.

But me and plenty of people didn’t like Sony’s dualshock 3 size and Sony never listened to those complaints because they were a******s and too cheap to change it. DS3 is a piece of s*** it should have been a lot more ergonomic feeling in the hands. DS4 handle shape is what the DS3 shape SHOULD have been from the start.

And a lot complained about the dualshock 3 and those Japanese a******s didn’t listen, that’s my point. DS4 shape or the boomerang is what the DS3 should have been. Their is just as many complaints about the “Duke” as much as the DS3 is.

You and plenty of people huh? Talk about some hard evidence ROFL.

The PS2 is the best selling console of all time and the Xbox didn't even come close. "Plenty of people" went with PS controllers instead.
