    Default D-pad or analog?

    I used to use the analog, but my hands kept cramping up, and I had to learn using the d-pad. Now it seems to work better for me than the analog ever did. What are you guys using?

    Always analogue (neGcon). Unfortunately the PSP's analogue nub is crap, so I had to get used to the d-pad. Although while it worked great with Pure, with Pulse's sensitive controls and its track's many long, sweeping bends, I am in desperate need of a proper analogue input method.

    I never had a negcon, but I used analog in wo3 of course (and fusion), but I was mainly thinking of the PSP, now. I totally agree that the PSP-analog is leaving a lot to be desired. I wonder, has it been changed anything in the slim version of the console?

    d-pad all the way.
    tried analog stick once ... but i have to big hands to reach it comfortably.
    also, i have to remap accel to SQUARE and fire to X for me not to cramp.

    You know what? I really miss having an extra set of shoulder buttons. That would have made absorbing weapons and using weapons a bit easier... *sigh*

    D-pad in Pulse. The analogue stick is crap for racing games on the psp. It does work for other games, but not for racing games.

    I actually think I liked using the analog in Ridge Racer, but that's a game with an entirely different tempo.

    i only have problems absorbing because i absorb with CIRCLE with my right index finger. so i can't absorb when i need to turnbreak right.
    this could be solved if i switched backlook and absorb so i can absorb on TRIANGLE with my thumb ... but i am so used to this setup ... no way i gonna adapt.

    My solution is pressing the x with the joint of my thumb, and using the tip for weapons and absorbing. Works most of the time, but the angle of the hand when absorbing is not very good, and sometimes screws up my flow...

    ALWAYS the analog stick, and NEVER the D-Pad. I have tried with the D-Pad but it's just too slow & jerky (For me anyway) and i always go back to the Analog stick. I'm a very "Light handed" player (I don't bash the controls around & i don't push the buttons any harder than i have to) so i find the Analog stick works really well.
