Admittedly I think I'm spoiled by Sonys' PS2 controller. The P2600 forms nicer in your hand than the PS2, and the moulded in rubber bits are good in those anxious sweaty palm moments. I use it primarily for driving games where unfortunately it has a few irksome qualities. The “Rumble Force” can set up a rattle in some of the buttons like they're loose. Very annoying over the top of a sound track! The other, and it's probably just my big thumbs, buttons 1 (braking) and 2 (acceleration) when you go for the brake you sometimes get the go button as well! It doesn't happen with the PS2 buttons.
