Still better than the 360 ones!

The 360 triggers are just about perfect.

So is the offset stick design that I see they didn't go with on the PS4 controller again.
I'm not being a troll; I'm genuinely curious. Why do people think sticks that aren't aligned are actually better?

When I'm holding a controller, aligned thumb sticks just feel natural to me. I've never owned a Xbox or 360, but every PC gamepad I've used has thumbs sticks set up roughly like the Dual Shock's ones.

It's not assymetrical that matters, it's placement. Having your thumbs up higher, closer to the fingers than to each other, is a more natural placement.

The dual shock put the sticks wherever they fit, and 20 years later Sony still uses that.
The Xbox put one stick where it's most comfortable, expecting players to use it more than they use the dpad. This was right, but they possibly should have moved the other stick on the 360 (I see the debate)
The WiiU Pro controller, or whatever, put them both in the place where they're most useful for an FPS game
Music for the discerning:
