In what way? Your palm sits in the same position on each one, and the buttons are symmetrical. No, you don't have it exactly the same way, I guess, but you don't have it so one hand is working with an analog stick way up at the top of the controller and one way at the bottom.

1.84 TFLOPS is more in line with a 7850 (1.76 TFLOPS) than a 7870 (2.56 TFLOPS)

These are low-end parts for a gaming PC. (note: you cannot compare AMD FLOPS to Nvidia FLOPS)

The natural resting position on a Dual Shock is with your thumbs over the dpad and buttons. You have to extend your thumbs to use the analog sticks.

The Xbox controller places the left analog stick under your thumb, as it is the primary control method rather than the dpad.
The Wii U places both sticks in the natural resting position for your thumbs. I haven't held one, but it seems like it would be awkward if you aren't playing shooters.

When you have one thumb on the left thumbstick and one thumb on the buttons it's not symmetrical.

My resting position is definitely with both thumbs on the analog sticks. My thumbs point right at each other when I pick up the controller. Whenever I pick up the xbox 360 controller, my default position is the D-pad and right analog stick. Okay, it's not that, its the triggers. I like having one finger for each trigger, and with the xbox controller, you have to use only one finger for each side, resting on the main trigger.

The PS controller is small enough that it might as well be XD

 

I just went and picked up the PS2 controller, and, yes, it is slightly too small. But as long as your  hands aren't bigger then average, it isn't uncomfortable at all, especially compared to the xbox controllers, which are just so strangely designed...

I hate to break it to you, but I think you have small hands and/or are holding the controllers wrong. The grips on both controllers are tapered in such a way to place your thumbs over the "outside" controls as your neutral resting position - your thumbs will be at roughly 45 degrees when using the analog stick on a DualShock.

I respectfully disagree with the low end part... They are solid mid Class cards... Plus I don't really understand why can't I directly compare AND and Nvidia cards...sounds like a fan boy or superficial PC race comment...

Dat auto-corret

 

I assume it's due to driver differences?

The average hand length for a male is 7.44 inches. Mine is 7.3. Barely under average. The only correct way to hold a controller is the way that is more natural for you. The correct way for me is holding it so my thumbs are on each analog stick by default.

Are you ambidextrous by any chance?

post #175 of 894

Well, that depends. If being ambidextrous can mean that your hand writing is just as bad for both hands, then yes, I am. tongue.gif

If not, then I'm just left handed.

Several of my friends who prefer the ps controller are either left handed or ambidextrous. Don't know why there is such a correlation but anyways...

It's not a fanboy comment - back when the 360 launched, AMD FLOPS were effectively double Nvidia's numbers, for the same level of performance from the cards. So a 2 TFLOP AMD card would perform roughly the same as a 1 TFLOP Nvidia card.

It's not a 2:1 ratio now, but AMD's numbers are always quite a bit higher than Nvidia's for the same level of gaming performance. (maybe 50% now?)
post #179 of 894

It's still not low end, that's still a great mid-level card.

I wonder how well my GTX680m performs on my laptop teraflop-wise...
