But can you not do that with the PS button? Get a message pop up, PS button instantly goes to the message. Simple.

Do you have a DS2? I swear the sticks were perfect. DS3 and SIXAXIS always felt looser and more slippier, but DS2 had grip and resistance while essentially looking the same.

Yes, please tweet him scroll L1 and R1 buttons! I wonder what he'd think of that.

Here is my idea of how the DS4 would look with 6 face buttons:

I also added that chromed ring around the Stick, it just looks so swag! lol

The + and - buttons were used by Sony in the controller prototypes, so I think it would be nice to have them back.

I like it, though would probably put those buttons adjacent to the L1/R1 somehow, like I saw on the previous page with the 360 controller
