    Default D-pad or stick?

    Hi guys,

    Always been a fan of WipEout but never owned a console till I got a PSP last month, i have to say that this version kicks arse!

    My question, Which control method do you prefer and why?

    I find that the stick lets you turn harder but its more difficult to be precise, esp on barrel rolls. So i tend to use the pad, apart from citia nuova (spelling??)

    spelling: citta nova (i think)
    and i always use the little analogue stick for everything on wipeout pure. i dont know why but it is way easier than the buttons (imo)

    btw: welcome to the fourums tom

    I play Wipeout Pure for 3 days and I'm using the D-Pad.
    The stick (what was the name for?) is a little bit too slow for the Barrel rolls or something like that.

    a brocken d-pad sounds fixable to me, all i think that you should have to do is remove the front panel and replace the plastic button cover. but i wouldnt try it yourself

    if just the cover is broken that's no problem. Just pull it out. Done that a few times for cleaning my PSP

    Yea, i like the sharpness of the stick but keep making silly errors, pushin forward while turning so not getting it as sharp, practice i guess.

    PS Did you know that if you've got an old analouge PSX/2 controller you can modify the the thumb stick to fit on the psp? the slot it mounts on is the same, you just need to file off the 'shoulder' on the PS2 stick. alot easy to get to if you have shovell hands like mine.
