I still think the ends of the boomerang are going to be very uncomfortable for any length of time. I guess I'll know once I get my hands on the Spider-Man 3...er...Playstation 3 controller. (that font is still lame)
LOL that's the first thing I said when I saw the PLAYSTATION3 font. Sheesh. As if MS didn't get enough flack for typing XBOX in uppercase; at least they didn't do it in DIABLO font. Or Wingdings.
As to the controller, I think I'd have a tough time with my hands at that angle and trying to move my thumbs sideways for up.
Think about how you hold it, and it's at least a 20 deg angle change from existing controllers. Maybe it will be comfortable, and we'll all be eating crow.
I guess we won't know until at least mid-next year. (as Spring 2006 is only the announced JAPAN PLAYSTATION3™©® !11!!!oneittyONE-ONE ELEVENTYONE-BANG!!!! release)
