Here's an interesting little nugget of information about the design of the DualShock 4 controller.

"For the analog sticks, we did test having the analog sticks on top, since the Xbox has the left side on top [above the D-pad]," Aoki told GamesBeat in an interview published on Monday. "Especially from the shooter teams -- we got feedback that that's what they wanted. They knew that consumers liked the 360 for shooters."
