    [news=http://www.clintonspace.co.uk/PS3HACKS/GDC/scrapped.jpg]Looks like the PS3 controller that we have all come to love so much (Yeah right) has been scrapped. The controller so often referred to as the 'Boomerang' is being scrapped in favor of a more sleek design according to some sources. The controller wasn't recieved too well by its own fan base, which has prompted sony to take a fresh look into the situation to see if they can come up with a better design which would be benificial to all, and just plain liked more by its core fans.... Again, details on the expected new design are under lock and key. They'll have to do a pretty good job on the design I'd expect as there have been many a concept design created by sonys fanbase which would be worthy of mass production themselves... [/news]

    Damn and it was wireless. I could get rid of my guns and just use that as a weapon instead....and it would always come back to me.

    No they still have to produce the consoles to be sold which prolly takes 5 months.

    i really happen to like ps2-style dualshock controllers. they should just improve on that design with the wireless and whatnot.

    Duuuude the whole reason they are changing the design is because they HAVE to. They got sued for the design...so did Microsoft but they won (obviously they used their money to their advantage).

    They don't have to change the design. Wasn't the whole lawsuit over the dual shock vibration thing?
