I think the Dual Shock has a much better design than the 360 controller. Really, the only reason MS moved the left analog stick was so that their controller wouldn't be seen as a direct ripoff of the Dual Shock. Having the sticks in symmetry feels a lot better to me. I don't care for the Xbox controller's trigger/shoulder buttons either. I much preferred the ones on the Dual Shock 2. The Dual Shock 3 definitely took a step back, as the new shoulder buttons don't feel nearly as solid.
