View Full Version : D-Pad vs. Nub

17th July 2007, 01:58 PM
Guys first of all sorry if this has been discussed already... just wanted to get opinions on D-Pad vs. Nub usage... personally with every WipEout game I have played, I've always stuck to the pad.

I tend to do this with the majority of racing/driving games I play on any of Sony's consoles as well for some reason! In fact, Motorstorm on PS3 is the first one I've really used the analogue input with that I can remember. Oh, and NFS Carbon as well, but the general rule for me is using the pad for precision driving on games like WipEout or Gran Turismo etc.

Since I'm really going to try hone my piloting skills in the lead up to Pulse, would like to see what the consensus is amongst the "pros" as to whether or not there is any inherent advantage or disadvantage to using either the pad or nub.

Cheers guys :)

That still sounds a bit snippy even with the wink. Next time, please just recommend the use of search to newbies, and give your own search results as you did this time if you want to be additionally helpful.

On the contrary, I think his tone was spot on. If new members give even a passing glance to the forum guidelines then this kind of topic wouldn't be necessary.

I think we're fairly lenient as a community here - on plenty of boards you'd be pounced on and torn apart for such an offence.

You're a hard one, Rob. :)
We know upfront that most bastards [strikeout] forum users [strikeout] bastards never read FAQs and guidelines on any forum in the world. I try to treat them nicely if they're otherwise nice.
Bastards. :g
