I doubt enough people want it, it's gonna cost Sony a lot to begin production on that controller after it was in no production whatsoever, and then there's the whole marketing bill, I think Sony needs to get HOME out first before they begin to think about anything else right now...
it's funny when they first showed it people were so disgusted by it that they went back to the dualshock i wished they would have released just to see what it was like but the dualshock is really nice anyways
when i first saw the boomerang it almost made me not buy a ps3 im glad they didnt release it at launch with the system like they were going to. It looked so awkward and uncomfortable to play with. Id rather stick to the classic then have to get used to a new controller that i dont even like. But i guess if enough people want it why not release it.
im pretty sure they will not release it because they are probably worried about people throwing their boomerang controller as you would if you were winning a online game of fifa and suddenly you get disconnected so in frustration you let it fly with its new aero dynamics it finds the nearest window hitting your next door neighbour in the back of the head .... also a controller is the same price of a game in aus so you quickly learn to keep your cool
yeah i would pass on this, i think it is a really stupid concept, though on the other hand, i wonder if they want to make it so when you get pissed at a game and do the controller toss, it comes back to you before it hits the wall.
I think they were going for an ergonimic steering wheel type of feel. It would probably be easier to use l1 and l2 buttons tho....
I only use one finger for the triggers
any one use a finger for each button?
like all four triggers at once ?????
Hey, who knows. The boomerang controller might make a comeback as the DS4 for the PS4 or something. I was looking forward to using it when it made its first appearance. I found the complaints a little silly when people were complaining about it. They did not even hold it yet and they were already saying it was bad. If Sony at least made the boomerang controller as a limited time offer or something I would gladly buy one. Preferably a black one with glossed buttons, like the PSP. That would be really cool. ^_^
I think its funny they people always say that they "prefer" the DS3, or think that the DS3 is more comfortable. I mean, yes, it looks different, but do you think they would really release a controller that was not as good as the previous ones? I am sure it went through testing and such to make sure it was good. Because if you just let your hands rest, and relax them, you can actually see where that controller would fit in better than the DS3.
But i could be wrong and it just came out of the head of that crazy Kaz.......
That controller would probably be the worst one ever produced. Looks extremely uncomfortable. DualShock is my favorite controller ever followed by the 64 controller (after you got used to it). Thank god they never released the boomerang thing with the PS3.

I was one of those people who were disgusted by that controller. I remember seeing it in a magazine and in a site and said "that is one fugly controller". I'm glad they didnt release it, I'm happy with my DS3, just the way it is..
i wish first parties would make a range of controllers to suit all hands. i mean the amount of difference in hand size and shapes yet theres only 1 controller to suit for each console is crazy. personally id like more analogue movement from the L2/R2 buttons and off centred analogue sticks like the 360 has as it suits my play style so much better
