Bleszinski on PS3: “I hate the fucking controller, I love the Blu-ray player”

Monday, 29 September 2008 16:57 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Say what you think, why don’t you. Gears of War 2 dev lead Cliff Bleszinski, speaking at a recent London press event for the game, has said he’s envious of PS3′s Blu-ray drive, but not exactly enamoured with DualShock.

“I hate the fucking controller,” he told VG247. “I’m sorry, I can’t stand the PS3 controller. I love the Blu-ray player.”

Bleszinski added that PS3 did have some good games, though, whether he likes the controller or not.

“I think there are some great games for PS3,” he said. “I think Metal Gear’s great. Heavenly Sword was great. But at the same time, right now, I’m always working on Xbox with Gears.”

Is there anything he’d like from PS3, though? Os is he comfortable with 360?

“I’m pretty comfortable with 360,” he said. “I like its controller.”

Gears of War 2 ships for 360 on November 7. For the rest of our coverage from the event, including play impressions and new shots, click this.

    It’s one man’s opinion, though one shared by many, many, many gamers.

  4. prodygee

    I don’t care about the controller. It has always been like this. Please don’t change it.

    I can imagine a ps3 controller looking the same as a 360 one. Just switch the left stick and d-pad. Done.

    #4 6 years ago
  5. lelik

    only problem is the stick placement. other than that the ps3 controller owns the 360. the placement only bothers me during fps games.

    ps. cliff is annoying as shit.

    #5 6 years ago
  6. soong

    The only problem is the stick placement?! I’m sorry, but you must be talking about an entirely different PS3 controller than the ones that come with the PS3 itself – you know, the ones with the inaccurate spongy analogue sticks and the awful plastic lumps that are supposed to be triggers.
    The only good thing about the PS3 controller – the ONLY good thing – is the d-pad; stick that on the 360 controller and you have the best controller possible.

    “the only problem is the stick placement”…. jeez, how deluded can fanboys get?

    #6 6 years ago
  7. soong

    And another thing: lots of gamers prefer one controller over the other, and a lot of gamers say the same thing about the PS3 controller as Cliff. Why isn’t he allowed to have an opinion? Why does expressing an opinion that he shares with a lot of gamers make him retarded?

    #7 6 years ago
  8. No_PUDding

    I have been brought up on the PS controller, so I like that, I don’t think his opinion on that matters.

    I like the fact that it’s got down to that, that’s the only reason he could prefer the 360, other than tons of money and a contract.

    Who are you to spout “moron” and “retarded” when you can barely form a coherent sentence?

    I own a PS3, and he’s absolutely right about the controller. I’m not paid by Microsoft either. Imagine that!

    #12 6 years ago
  13. Psychotext

    Yes, being paid by MS makes a huge difference. God forbid he holds a preference… like most gamers.

  14. Shatner

    Going by Sooong and Mortiferus’ rhetoric:

    Criticise Sony whilst working on your 360 Exclusive: “Hey! He’s just expressing an opinion man. BACK OFF!! Let the man speak!”

    (Hmm, where was mortiferus when Alex Evans of Media Molecule made some remarks (sorry, ‘expressed some opinions’) about the 360 recently eh???)

    Don’t criticise Sony : “You’re a deluded Sony fanboy”

    doublestandardslol

    Fuck controllers. Controllers don’t mean shit and anyone who is capable of assessing a GAME instead of the fucking hardware that is running it knows this. What a sorry state of affairs when ‘gamers’ – especially those who regard themselves as better informed and more reasoned than the casual lot who don’t bicker online all the damn time – when ‘gamers’ refuse to acknowledge a game on its own merits rather than something that is ALWAYS about the silicon it happens to run on.

    If gamers are so inextricably attached to their hardware then why don’t they just ditch the software and play the hardware all the damn time? Waggle about on your XMB or blades until the cows come home. Have a blast!

    GAMES are not the machines they run on.
    GAMES are not about the controller you use to play them with.

    If you’ve got trouble comprehending either of those two statements then, well done, the marketing men have you exactly where they want you.

    #14 6 years ago
  15. No_PUDding

    BigStu, you sound as much of a moron as him when you try to claim something as fact: ‘he’s absolutely right about the controller’.

    It’s a clear matter of opinion, and also a matter of genre for some multiplatform users. And ofcourse that’s not fucking paid for.

    EDIT:

    It’s worse when certain individuals don’t realise they are deluded.

    #15 6 years ago

    @wickedman: I have both a PS3 and a 360. I can only assume you’re 15 or 16 years old and not a native English speaker, so I won’t be too hard on you. I’ll just give you friendly advice: everybody has an opinion, and there will always be people that have an opinion that’s different from yours. You will lead a very unhappy (not to mention grumpy) life if you are not able to accept that in a rational manner. If you’re open to different opinions you will be all the smarter for it.

    Second advice: both Sony and Microsoft are faceless corporations, neither have your interests at heart. They only care about market share and profit. Being a fan of either one of these companies is idiotic. Just enjoy the games you like, use the controller you prefer, and stop defending a company that doesn’t give a f*ck about you.

    Third advice: learn to spell and write properly :)

    Can we just accept that there is bias everywhere and no one is totally impartial? No sense in pointing fingers and squealing ‘fanboy’, becuase that word is just overused.

    Everyone has reasons for their bias.

    If you are uncomfortable with the balance inject some of an opposing view to make the discussion fair.

    The only reason I am still here is becuase the journalism here is VERY impartial. And I like the banter here aswell.

    360 and PS3 controller both have their good points and bad points. ‘Hate’ is too strong a word for a peripheral made of plastic.

    Personally I think the 360 controller is better, but I don’t mind the PS3 Dual Shock 3 at all (in fact the PS3 is my preferred system at the moment but not because of the controller).

  43. reask

    @ onyxbox.

    I am fully in agreement with you.

    My neighbour has the ps3 and if i’m playing it within a couple of minutes i’m OK with the controller.

    apart from the triggers there really isn’t that much difference between them.

    #43 6 years ago
  44. Shatner

    When MS go through the mill he either says nothing or supports the motion.

    I don’t need to speak up on this site when MS get criticised morriss. Nobody’s faster than you to leap to their aid.

    By contrast, if there’s a negative Sony story, it’s rare to see you absent, dancing all over the comments section that follows it.

    And, as the LBP Beta stories recently demonstrated, even when there’s a uniformally well recieved Sony story, you can’t resist injecting as much negativity (and double standards – drip, drip, drip!) wherever you can.

    So, by your actions and your actions alone, I give you and the articles you write the credibility they warrant. If you don’t like that I suggest you improve instead of trying to play the victim card and blaming everyone else for the things you write and the manner in which you do it. Your ‘work’ is on display here. It’s getting tiresome watching you persistently refuse to tackle criticism head on instead of attempting to score cheap internet points and using dismissal and deflection as responses. Your reliance on anecdotal evidence is also pretty tiresome too.

    Still, if you feel strongly enough about it, why not contact Pat privately, or maybe other industry types to check out my work as I’m sure no-one who’s worth their salt in this industry wants someone like me bringing the tone and quality of this site down.

    So either a) you’re insinuating Pat doesn’t know his trade, and is letting someone as openly bias as myself bring down his project, b) I’m so good at it that no-one else but you has noticed and your above post will now enlighten all of our readers as to my unflinching Microsoft love or c) you’ve got absolutely no idea as to what you are talking about yet again.

    Well done morriss.

    As usual you’re avoiding dealing with any criticism directly and using deflection and dismissal (and now hiding behind your employer too)by way of response.

    I don’t really need you to keep proving what I say to be true, but it’s nice that you do so.

    #55 6 years ago
  56. morriss

    What is it exactly you expect me to say to someone on the internet? Do you really expect reasoned debate? You really actually want me to consider what someone who has a history of being shallow, vindictive, argumentative, arrogant, aggressive and belligerent has to say and actually take some of it to heart?

    You’re even more deluded than you make out.

    However, if you’re really serious, if you really want to know what it’s all about and why, then I’ll be at the Eurogamer Expo on the Tuesday. Come see me and we’ll sit down and have a couple of pints and you can ask me anything you like.

    But as for actually “defending myself” when you seem to be the only person with a problem – what else is new? – is something I really am not interested in doing. If you want to somehow twist that sentiment and funnel it into your “he’s dodging again, I must be right” mantra then go ahead.

    @reask

    Yup, there’s nothing wrong in some one liking one system over another but ‘fanboyism’ is something else… it’s that blind belief system where any negativity towards their preferred system is seen as an insult against that belief.

    ‘Fanboyism’ is in many way’s like religious fanaticism for some, and you’re right it shouldn’t be mixed with people who can’t help but bite when unqualified comments that: ‘just pi$$ing some one off’ are made.

    #57 6 years ago
  58. Shatner

    Hmm. Your first two paragraphs are pure dismissal. With a good bit of character assassination thrown in for good measure. Excellent.

    The rest suggests that I can’t possibly know how you tick. Which is odd considering you’ve just gone and done a character assassination on someone you’ve never met. But then double standards seem to be a good safety net when the dismissals and deflections get a bit too obvious.

    And morriss, all I was saying, originally, was that you revel in acting like a fanboy and, (here’s the science bit), you shouldn’t feel hard done by that you’re regarded as a fanboy – with all the stigma that comes with the label – as a result. Now you’ve gone off and played the good old victim card (when you’re not insulting people, that is).

    If you don’t want to be regarded as a fanboy-for-hire then don’t act like one. If you act like one then don’t get all bent out of shape when you get regarded as one.

    Do you see how it works? It’s not rocket science!

    76 comments! Can’t be arsed to read them all, but I’m assuming most people agree with him. I think it gets a lot of unfair criticism, though. I’m indifferent to the PS3 controller, personally. It’s certainly not bad, and it tends to be at least competent in nearly every genre (unlike say, the 360 pad, which is crap for fighters and anything where you have to use the dpad). I find the PS3 pad doesn’t really excel at anything though, but having used it for the past 15 years there’s nothing I can achieve better on another controller. I never find a problem with anything about it, I’m just so used to it. Then again, I’m like this with almost any controller, I’m just that fucking talented.

    #77 6 years ago
  78. morriss

    No-one agrees with him, ecu. Not that I can see anyway.

    And yeah, it has the best dpad. Best by miles.

    #78 6 years ago
  79. Psychotext

    Taking the horrific 360 dpad out of the equation the sixaxis / DS3 dpad is passable at best. At least when compared to the Nintendo / Sega dpads anyway.

    #79 6 years ago
  80. morriss

    I don’t have a problem with it. None at all.

    Didn’t like SIXAXIS at all though, but after the added weight/rumble of DS3, I haven’t really thought about it.

    #80 6 years ago
  81. No_PUDding

    Wii is so awesome doesn’t even need a D-PAd.

    Now take heed! Jazz Jackrabbit spawns great developers!

    EDIT:

    Sixaxis needs to be used properly. I know that sounds like such shit, but it should never be used for turning valves or balancing on ledges or steering dragons.

    Folklore used it wonderfully. As did somethign else which I’ve completely forgotten and LBP is superb use of it too.

    Developers have just got to be imaginative, it just adds a visceral element to gameplay. Don’t stick it there becuase it seems obvious.

    #81 6 years ago
  82. ecu

    Nintendo have a patent on that kind of d-pad, don’t they? Do Sony also have a patent on theirs? It might explain why the 360 d-pad is so shit. Trying to type a message to someone on XBL is like trying to stab yourself in the head while trying to grind your stomach off with an industrial sander at the same time. I actually use the analog stick for it, but it’s still annoying.

    As for the Sony pads, they never got better than the very original analog pad IMO. So glad I still have mine.

    Bloody hell, 83 comments – you can just feel the love in this thread :)

    I often wonder what the prototype boomerang controller would have been like. It was lolled out of existence, but it could have controlled incredibly well. Given the response it received, it’s little surprise Sony retreated back to the cover of the duel shock design.

    I remember when Criterion gave a pod cast in which they discussed the technical merits of both 360 and PS3, and they all said they preferred the PS3 controller. That was greeted with general shock and awe from the internet community.

    Personally I think it’s hard to argue against the 360′s sticks or the PS3′s d-pad, but after that, it’s really down to preference.

    #85 6 years ago

    The Boomerang would have been heaps better. Too bad Sony let themselves be bullied by their fans.

    On this subject the sixaxis is a big improvement on the horrendous DS2 but it’s still not all that great. The sticks are all wrong the triggers are mushy the redeeming factor is the d-pad (even if it’s in the wrong place).

    #93 6 years ago
  94. Blerk

    Pads are just something you get used to. There are plenty of niggles with all of them, but use one for a few sessions and you’ll settle into them okay. I still think that most of the complaints come from people who are really used to one particular pad and occasionally use a different one.

    #94 6 years ago
  95. David

    if consoles didn’t restrict the pad I use on it I could easily use the one I feel more comfortable with. Which for me is a 360 layout. I have big hands and the PS layout always hurt me during a few hours of play.

    Allow joypads to be open source and I’ll be happy then I can use the layout I feel comfortable with on any machine.

    Someone mentioned earlier its not the hardware but the games that are important. I would agree but you have to feel comfortable playing those games. I rarely felt comfortable using the ps pad my big hands just aren’t meant for it.

    ooook i’m going to apologise in advance for not reading all the drivel being spouted thus far in this thread. i’ve read a little bit, and that little bit was enough.

    it should also be noted that i’m not going to even attempt to be polite, since i doubt i’ll ever use this website again. i won’t be OTT rude, but i won’t try and suck up to you lot either.

    this coming rant is, for the most part, directed at those Xbox users who have submitted thus far.

    i’m not actually attacking xbox users as a whole, just the ones who have posted. my best friend ownes an xbox and…well…he’s my best friend. however, what i have noticed about those who have posted on this sight is the overwhelming amount of shite that seems to be coming from their keyboards.

    firstly – well done those who have tried to pin this down as a matter of OPINION. it IS a matter of opinion, and naturally the opinion of the MS pawn presented in the article is going to be understandably bias towards the MS piece of plastic that is the 360. however, his word is NOT the word of God, that overrules anybody else, however much the pittiful xbox fanboys on this site may think it is. btw, if there are any xbox fans who have tried to be objective, then i congratulate you, and you are exempt from my damnation.

    oh, now, notice i just said FANBOY :-o forgive me, i forgot only ps3 owners can be fanboys…what a complete load of bollocks, the fact that you microsoft noobs are so obssessed with the term is, most probably, because you’re more fanboyish than anyone else you’re likely to meet at E3.

    right, anyway, back to the point – PERSONALLY i think the ps3 controller is far better than any other control type on the market. people rant and rave about the Wii – but that’s f***ing up real gaming, and for all it can be a laugh when you’re completely pissed and punching your friends accidentally, it doesn’t count. PERSONALLY i think the 360 controller is crap. i can’t stand it. it’s big, chunky, the dpad is a pointless addition since using it is a chore, and it generally feels uncomortable to use – FOR ME. now – i used to be an avid Nintendo fanatic, back in the days of the 64 (which is still one of the best consoles ever) and the early days of the Gamecube. back then i loved the tri-pronged controller the 64 used, and wouldn’t use anything else BUT Nintendo changed for the gamecube, and so i had to adapt. notice, though, how the gamecube changed to use a controller that was virtually identical to that of the PS2?
    also, i bet that many of the people who have criticised the ps3 controller in the above (or below, w/e) thread owned and loved a ps3, but have now miraculously changed their opinions. But then the ps2 was perhaps the most successful console so far, and no one ever complained about the controller. now these 360 fanboys come along and, because their new controller is different, it automatically becomes the best, and anything else is crap. never mind the fact that it does nothing the old ps2 controller didn’t do, never mind the fact that it’s 4-button layout is taken from the SNES, nevermind the fact it’s the biggest, chunkiest and yet the ONLY controller on the market not to have some degree of motion sensitivity…oh, but of course, it rumbles :-| whoopdy-fucking-doo let’s all laugh at Sony for NOT having rumble with the dualshock 2 cos they got sued – i’d still far rather use one than the piece of shit that is the 360 controller.

    anyway, typical of my mentality – i’ve suddenly become bored and really don’t see the point in continuing this rant…however, i will just address some points now, which i’m sure would be picked up on in some retards seriously misguided attempt to argue against this.

    1 – i am NOT a Sony fanboy. if i was asked now to criticise the ps3 i would be more than capable of doing so, and without hesitation.
    2 – if there are any PS3 owners above who have started spouting the word fanboy, you’re just as bad as the rest of them. come up with something solid.
    3 – any typos are not down to my inability to speak English, as seems to be the oh-so-clever assumption made by the more immature members of this site. such occurrences are simply the product of a rushed rant coming completely from the top of my head.
    4 – the use of long words is NOT arrogance. this has bugged me on so many occasions – just because i’m fairly well versed in the arts of speaking, does not suggest that i’m completely up myself, contrary to apparent popular beliefs.
    5 – i do NOT work for Sony
    6 – since everybody seems to have had a go at Sooong or whoever it was who demonstrated such a stunning display of hypocricy, i think i might do the same…oh wait, i just did.
    7 – sarcasm and irony are not the internet’s best friends – the internet is an inanimate collective of inanimates, run by living beings. sarcasm and irony are the best friends of those living beings who choose to use them.
    8 – i don’t hate the 360. the 360 has many great games and innovative ideas (less of the latter) i just prefer the ps3
    9 – i’m not expecting people to just sit and take my words as fact either. i fully expect someone to try and argue, and i encourage them to do so. however, unless said argument is going to be good, i strongly suggest that you don’t bother.
    10 – i appreciate that i have contradicted myself a little over the fanboy issue – i just mean that the term fanboy is completely bollocks unless used as a minor point in an argument.

    anything i’ve missed in my rush to get this finished, please politely bring it to my attention :)

    thanks for your time.
