Playing FPS games on PS3... Not the best experience

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So I picked up a PS3 yesterday after waiting from 10 PM to 1:30 AM in a Black Friday line, and I picked up BC2 with it as well since it was only $10. Anyway, I have both an Xbox 360 and a PS3 so I have experience playing FPS games on both now. Playing FPS games on the PS3 just doesn't seem quite right to me. Especially in BC2 where R1 and L1 were used for aim/shoot. The control sticks also stuck out completely instead of having the small circular indents like on the Xbox controller so it was very uncomfortable. Also, the controller. just feels too small after using the Xbox 360 controller for so long (I haven't used my PS2 in a long time so I forgot how it feels).

I don't know about you guys, but it just feels a lot more natural playing FPS games on the Xbox 360. I think from now on I will use my Xbox 360 for FPS games and my PS3 for RPG's.

Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me?

Same, can't stand that excuse of a controller lol. Xbox 360 controller wins hands down.

I think you're just used to the xbox controller and you need to spend more time with the PS3 controller.

The 360 controller is vastly superior, ergonomics and button layout-wise to the PS3. Both of course, both are abysmal when it comes to precision aiming.

I think this mostly depends on what you're used to. For instance, the other day I was playing Forza 4 (all the assists off) at a friend of mine's place with the 360 controller and while it felt awkward for about a lap (I own a PS3 and no 360 so I'm quite used to the PS3 controller), after that it felt like like I've never been playing anything else. I can imagine shoorts being somewhat more difficult though since they require you to use both analog sticks.

Don't worry, 90% of my gaming is PC gaming. Some games are just better on consoles though, and some don't exist on the PC.

I don't think you spent much time with the KB&M, because it beats a controller for anyone.

I actually prefer the PS3 controller over the Xbox one. I can't stand using RT and LT to shoot. I think it's dumb because realistically you have to use your middle finger to shoot. The convexity of the joysticks is actually a lot more precise IMO, especially once you get used to it.

It's all my opinion though.
