    Ok, thanks! I didn't see it mentioned in your earlier post and wondered if it had been removed from the game

    (Also, I am a single-button sideshifting pilot, so my usual configuration involves one button + direction for air brake, and another button + direction for sideshift.)

    Ah, I see. Didn't know there were actually people playing on single-brake

    Yeah, I'm stupid like that

    I guess this what happens when your first real Wipeout game is Pure

    It depends on how strong the airbrakes are. By using L2 and R2, they have a wide range of motion, meaning that analog control is easier. Pressing halfway down on R2, is easier than halfway down on R1.

    So if Sony Liverpool made the brakes so they have that much intricacy, I'll stick with L2 and R2 (though I'll probably look for those trigger add-on peices to make it like the 360s triggers).

    But if pressing halfway doesn't make a big difference, I'll stick with L1 and R1 because they're easier to double tap.

    I had to learn how to play single brake on the PSP...only because the ergonomics of the damn thing is pretty bad, which causes my fingers to hurt when I try to steer and brake with my left hand...

    btw...I have the old fatty boombatty PSP's for those who are going to say they have improved the ergonomics slightly for the new ones...

    anyway...can't wait to fly like the lightning once again in glorious HD and on the glorious dual shock 3 with sixaxis...

    as for R1/L1 combo or an R2/L2 combo??? I'm not sure...the analogue might actually be effective to achieve faster times...I'm thinking for corners which aren't so severe, sometimes you only need to apply maybe 40% airbrake, lean, and power out...whereas if you use digital R1/L1s wouldn't that hit the airbrakes at 100% all of the time??? even when you don't need to???

    * goes back to waiting patiently in the corner for a release date *

    I found the R2/L2 triggers too unresponsive in a quick race. If you really need to brake hard, it just takes too long getting the trigger all the way to the maximum position (they are quite springy, you know). And for slight braking you can still tap the R1/L1 ever so briefly, I'd imagine it does roughly the same as pressing in R2/L2 ever so slightly.

    I guess lots and lots of playtime will tell (so bring it on, SL!)

    I've noticed that also. (not with HD obviously) It is my humble opinion that the DS3's "trigger" buttons are a PAIN IN THE ASS. Totally pointless things, the DS2 is still the best all round pad ever.

    Ach, I do like them for 'normal' racing games, like Motorstorm. They work well for analog acceleration. I guess they totally suck for every other genre though... (imagines Tekken with analog R2/L2 - damn, I'll finally need an arcade stick!)

    You can also use your DS2 with the PS3 as far as I know. There are some connectors out there
