    So no different than any other sores you might get on your hand you'd get if you were doing something frequently with your hands.

    I find the 360 pad much nicer than the PS3, but then the 360 is desinged for the larger handed western person

    The only times I ever got anything like this was when playing street fighter 2 against my brother, after a 1-2 hour gaming session, I'd have blistered thumbs (sometimes it took 30mins if we were really going hard).

    See, I knew there was a legitimate reason for thinking that anyone who claimed the dual shock is comfortable was clinically deranged.

    I used to get Guitaridous from playing my guitar too much and wearing out my fingertips.

    I hate the offset joysticks and tighter grip (hand to hand distance) of the 360. I guess I was used to the PS controller going back 13yrs (PS1).

    I still prefer spring keyboards over the new fancy ones.

    I've never had this symptoms so badly. I used to get the occasional sore thumb but that's pretty much it. I thought the PS controllers were the most comfortable thing in the world, until I held the original Xbox controller for the first time and saw how wrong I was. Now the I own a 360 i wouldn't change the controller for anything in the world!

    It has something to do with the PS3 because the girl obviously played PS3. And it's not biased, it's clearly just stating facts.

    Stupid fanboys... :eyebrow:
