Maybe I just missed something a little while back, but I've noticed some changes in the Sixaxis contollers.
Okay, so I went to bestbuy eariler today to exchange one of my controllers (dog bit off the rubber parts of the analog sticks). So I just got around to opening it just about 5 minutes ago, an I immideatly noticed some differences to it.
1st. The handels on it weren't as "slippery" as the original Sixaxis, it had more of a grip to it.
2nd. It feels A LOT more durable and not as cheap, it doesn't have that cheap plastic feel to it.
3rd. It's a little heavier (probably because of the new material being used), but not as much of a weight diff. as if it were a DS3.
4th. It's not translusent, at all.
5th. Analog movement is a lot better, actually, it's as good as the DS3's
Good to see Sony made some kind of effort to make this sixaxis a little more comfortable.
