I hold the ds3 in my hands asymetric, left low, right high. Sometimes I'll put my right elbow on the table next to my recliner, arm perpendicular, left hand against my forehead. it's comfortable and emblematic of how I hold the controller. I don't like my hands being in the same position, particularity with the left and right hand going up and over to the top. My hands are average or above average, but i naturally like the ds scheme. Maybe the left stick and face buttons being on the bottom would feel better for me, but I don't think so. It feels better with the controller at a 10 or 15 degree tilt towards 1 o clock, i.e. shifted right.
