I actually found the plastic to have a better, less slick feel, and there were no ill effects playing Sonic Racing Transformed on my PC. If the LED cosmetics are an issue for you, the light definitely shines through the plastic. Doesn't bug me, but I could see where some would be annoyed by it. I'll post pics later for evidence exhibit A.
Indeed. Gameplay doesn't suffer, but seriously if they are going to drop the quality they need a new Msrp now. 54.99 is too much. 39.99 should be the new price, then we can actually have decent sales.
I'm sorry but when you have an original DS3 for so long, an avid ps3 gamer for years and years, you get a bit miffed at the quality when you want to replace the controller. I would love to have a different color other than black but sheesh.
Also the plastic probably has the "less slick" feel because there isn't months of wear and grease lol. All controllers loose their grip and become pretty slick over time. I love how a new controller feels out of the box but it doesn't last as long as I wish it woulda haha.
