Do people really think it looks bad? Like...I don’t know what people expect? It seems close enough to the Dual Shock, buttons are all in the same places, looks perfectly functional to me.

Are we expecting N64/Gamecube levels of design with these things? I’d argue that controllers have been mostly “solved” and anything that’s wildly different is worthy of that kind of attention but this is just...It’s a white Dual Shock.  C’mon.
