Sure but that was 7 years ago. Surly 95%+ new Xbox 720 buyers either have a blu-ray player or those that don't couldn't care less obviously because they don't have one already and just want to play games.

Whether

However if I was you I would go with the PS4 but that is my opinion always disliked the huge controller of the xbox with a battery pack in the place where your hand should be.

I'm the opposite.. the Xbox feels more natural... I own both the 360 and a PS3 and there is no way my hands fit on a ps1/2/3 controller comfortably.

People with tiny freaking hands... If you hold your hand out in front of you like your holding a controller.. Thumbs ALWAYS fall staggered.

The Xbox controller feels better to most, I also prefer the Xbox controller for the triggers and the joysticks actually have some resistance to them.
Since Xbox is dead to me [Halo, Gears, and Forza have gone meh] I feel that I'm going to go PS4 this time around and just use M+KB the whole way.
I find it ironic that Sony does give some M+KB support whereas MS doesn't.

What???

Holding my hands out in front of me as if I were holding a controller, my thumbs naturally go to exactly where the PS3 controller's analog sticks are.

I do prefer the 360 controller though, not because of analog stick positioning, but just because the controller is bigger. The PS3 controller starts to give me cramps after a while unless I put the bottom part of the hand-grips at the base of my fingers. Either that, or I have to arch my thumbs crazy high and only play with the tips.

I have really big hands.

Personally I think the analog mechanisms they use in the ps3 controller are sub par and inferior to what the 360's controller uses. Not only is is loose upon getting it brand new, it will only get looser as time goes by. Being loose and inaccurate is not a good thing for a analog stick. While I like the Stick layout on the 360 better, better thumb placement for that hard IMO, tossing the stick where the d-pad is on the current ps3 controller would not work right and would be cramped for anyone with bigger hands. IMO the 360 controller fits in the hard vary well, fit is so well that you can't even really tell that the battery pack is so big even with bigger hands. PS3 controller really isn't a good fit, not a controller you would wrap your palms around. Not only that but the Triggers need to be reworked, in the current state sony has pretty much used r1 as the 360 would have used their triggers in terms of FPS.

Even without moving the analog stick, as it has become more of a brand look even though functionality isn't the best idea, if they fix the rest the controller would be decent.
Luckily it seems that the ps4 controller is just that, not sure about analog sticks yet (I hoping Sony doesn't screw up that) but it seems the controller will be a little bigger with more palm grip. Triggers are now fixed and not ass-backwards like before. Might be the first modern sony controller that doesn't suck

Perfect controller would still be the 360 controller with a d-pad built the same as the dual shock and built in high capacity batter pack. Also should bring back black and white buttons and place them in the same spot as the original xbox s controller, to go along with the shoulder buttons. More buttons never hurt. Also make the Analog sticks harder to press down.
^a controller like that to use on a PC for games that play better with them would be awesome.
