Grand Theft Auto IV to rock videogames this Tuesday

Even though it’s not the holiday season, this week will have some of the biggest releases of 2008. On the high-def console side, you have Grand Theft Auto IV – which from early impressions is already in the running for game of the year. The requisite Mario Kart iteration for Wii is already on store shelves, each packed with the free-floating Wii Wheel accessory.

Huh?? With Vista you just plug a 360 controller in and it works... A game like this would obviously support it too. Not to mention theres many other PC controllers.

And secondly the PS3's controller is a joke with it's 1995 design. Simple things like holding the trigger button down to drive is an annoyance - your finger just slips off it. Sony really need to design a new controller, and stop adding things to an ancient design that was not intended to have such things in the first place (analogue sticks, triggers...).

From my experiences it is far easier to utilize the 360's analog stick scheme than the PS2 scheme. I'm a mouser at heart, but the 360's stick provides:

1. Better response via less resistance and more fluid movement
2. Larger axis travel which lends to greater accuracy of movement

Just my opinion, but I own a couple of 360 controllers for the PC rather than the PS-style due to their accuracy and ease of use.

I think though that this is more preferential than anything, everyone is going to have a like/dislike of either of the two. I myself hated Xbox controllers completely until the 360 version came out. PS2 was superior to the original Xbox easy, but I think the 360's has the edge now.
